Eliminate The Diaper Changing Struggles
Hug ‘n’ Hold is a secure, easy to use restraint to hold a baby or toddler safely on a diaper changing pad, keeping them from rolling away or escaping during diaper changes.
- It eliminates the diaper changing battles.
- Adds an extra level of security when you are reaching for the diapers and wipes.
- No more accidents of baby falling off the changing table when you didn’t know that she could roll yet.
- Acts like extra hands to hold a baby’s shoulders down on the changing pad.
- Keeps your hands free to do the dirty work of diaper changing.
- Works on changing stations in public bathrooms.
- How does it work?
How The Hug N Hold Works
- Inhibits rolling at the shoulder level.
- The Hug ‘n’ Hold needs a stiff backed changing pad to be attached to. Cardboard can be used to stiffen the back.
- The weight of the child on the pad in combination with the vest and solid back of the pad keep the child from rolling.
- The Hug ‘n’ Hold buckles around the back of the pad or table.
- It fastens around the child using hook and loop(velcro), and has two chest straps that fasten in front of the child, and two shoulder straps that come up and over the shoulders and fasten onto the chest strap to act as a 4 point harness.
- The Hug ‘n’ Hold is not meant to be used as a safety device, and is no substitute for parent supervision.
- Never leave child unattended.
- Pad not included.
As a pediatric Occupational Therapist, I have a strong knowledge of kinesiology and positioning of children to help them achieve the function that they need to achieve. Along with this training comes the knowledge of where to hold a child to inhibit movements that need to be avoided. I have developed the Hug N Hold to incorporate these body movement principles. The device’s structure is like a vest, and the straps originate from behind the child so that it is in contact with the child at all times. The child is unable to rotate or
slide up or down inside the vest-like straps.
I have seen other straps that originate on the outer portion of a changing pad, which gives the child space to wiggle free, or turn over. Others I have seen make a cross over the child’s chest, which can be dangerous because if the child wiggles down, it could potentially choke or strangle the child.
