Incubator Covers for Premature Babies

Following the visit of Natalija Sviridova, from Irish Neonatal Health Alliance to our September meeting, below are details of how to make incubator covers for premature babies.

If you would like to make a cover here is a link to the pattern to be used, https://projectlinusuk.wordpress.com/patterns-and-tutorials/incubator-covers/  It is the pattern used for the majority of Neonatal Intensive Care Unit incubator covers and has been received extremely well by all maternity units.

– The inner lining of the covers should be light rather than dark as lighter fabrics are more practical in the hospital environment

– In terms of the fabrics to be used, fabrics that are more durable and do not react to heat are best for this project

– Wadding for the incubator covers should only be used in the middle of the cover – this provides easier access to the baby inside (flaps are easier to bend/flip) and keeps the cover in place.
