Available in Pink, Mint and Cream, the multi-award winning Miniboo makes a thoughtful gift for new parents with a baby in neonatal care.
Having two Miniboo allows for one to be with baby and the other with mum, swapping them over every couple of days to 'recharge' the scent. Mums also benefit from having the scent of her baby close by, for breastfeeding mums having the Miniboo at home can help with milk production during expressing.
Miniboo are also ideal for twins or multiples that have been separated, ensuring they continue their unique bond even while the babies are apart.

★★★★★Best comforterWe used it a lot while our baby was at NICU so he could have our smell with him when we werent there. When the Covid crisis started and dads werent allowed to go to the hospital it was the best way for my boy to keep feeling his dad present with his smell. Best present ever. He still likes to hold him now that were at home.
