St. Thomasâ€™s Hospital have run out of bonding squares on their Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit.
Bonding squares are pairs of 5 inch by 5 inch knitted or crochet squares (any colour, design and wool â€“ please do be aware it needs to be machine washable for accidental spit up moments).
One square is put with the poorly baby and the other square is with the parent and then these are swapped over daily.
They are so crucial for premature babies or poorly newborns and parents who are separated at such a stressful time.
Please, please dig out your needles if you can.
Please send any squares to:
