MedLine Citation:
PMID:  19332406     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This article presents the physiologic rationale for dressing infants in the NICU. It reports interview responses from mothers and nurses on their feelings about one infant dressing program, proposes a care plan, discusses the advantages and disadvantages of infant dressing, and suggests ideas for related research. The goals of the program described here are to provide preterm and/or sick infants with increased insulation to improve thermoregulation, personalize and normalize care, promote developmentally appropriate care, promote discharge planning, and support all families equally, regardless of socioeconomic status.
