Crocheted umbilical cord tie
Handmade in NZ
Mother Nurture cord ties are a traditional, gentle alternative to the standard plastic cord clamps. Hand-crocheted from 100% cotton thread, these ties are gentle on newborns delicate skin, far less likely to get caught on clothing and nappies and they won't dig into you or your baby during those precious skin-to-skin cuddles.
Autoclaved sterilised and ready to be used straight from the pack.
Please note: As these cord ties are very difficult to dry completely once wet, they best suit families who plan on delaying the first bath. It is recommended that a newborn only be wiped clean with a cloth until the cord stump falls off, at which point they can then have a proper bath.
It is important to keep the umbilical cord stump and surrounding skin clean and dry in order to help prevent infection.
General care and hygiene of the cord tie and surrounding umbilical area is the responsibility of the caregiver. Please speak with your midwife or doctor if you have any questions or concerns.
