Product Description


For Hospital Use Only

Nesting gives baby the security of boundaries that are created naturally within Mummy’s womb, this helps to keep them snug and secure which enhances their sleep pattern.

Claire's Clinical Nest has been modified so the sides can be folded down to accommodate respiratory equipment, wires and tubing. This feature also allows easier access to neonates for cares and procedures, supporting minimal handling.

Any neonate nursed prone or lateral within Claire’s Clinical Nest MUST be monitored via a cardio respiratory monitor or apnoea box. This should be discussed and explained to parents. Safe sleeping with regards to reducing SUDI risk, should always be discussed with parents in accordance with current healthcare guidelines.

Temperature control is important when using Claire’s Nest, as it provides a thermal environment for the neonate. The neonates temperature should be checked prior to placing in the nest, and 1 hour later to avoid overheating. Temperatures should be observed regularly. Please be mindful of incubators using humidity and neonates being dressed as they mature, or undressed for observation or procedures. It is advisable to document any changes, to ensure consistency in temperature monitoring and control.
Position changes should be regular over the day from left to right side and alternating between prone, supine and lateral, as the neonates condition allows.

Regular position change in neonates can help reduce head moulding and flattening, and provides pressure care relief to support good skin integrity. Lateral and Prone positioning has also shown to improve digestion and respiratory effort in some neonates.

When positioning in Claire’s clinical nest, the neonate’s hands should always be placed towards their mouth to allow self-soothing.

Hips should be rounded and well supported to avoid the knees or hips spreading out. Feet should always be positioned snugly at the base of the nest.
When positioning try to avoid abduction and rotation of hips and shoulders, and keep feet, legs and hips aligned whenever possible.

The nest straps can be used to provide further containment. Movement should never be restricted or prevented, and a flexed midline position should always be supported.

All neonates individual needs should be assessed. If unsure about positioning, staff should seek guidance from their Clinical Educator or ward Physiotherapist.

Do not use if any component is broken or missing.

Nests are recommended for hospital use only, and should not be used inside a carry cot or a pram.
IMPORTANT — Read the instructions carefully before use and keep them for future reference.

*Safety Always! Babies must be monitored at all times.
