Wing Sling and Calming Cuddle Blanket available from CMS

Promotional feature

Wing Sling and Calming Cuddle Blanket, produced by Small Beginnings, are now available from Central Medical Supplies Ltd (CMS). A specialist supplier of developmental care products, CMS is the exclusive distributor of Small Beginnings products in the UK.

Wing Sling is an arm immobiliser that can help support the arm of a newborn with a broken clavicle, which occurred during a difficult birth. Wing Sling features soft padded brushed nylon and foam for the back of a baby’s neck and flexible stretch netting to create a sling. The sling protects and cradles the affected arm and helps keep the baby safe and comfortable.

The Calming Cuddle Blanket is a weighted blanket for infants between 34 and 40 weeks. The latex-free blanket provides enough pressure for sensory input, to support physiological stability, while the four sections keep too much weight from being placed on the baby. The Calming Cuddle Blanket is machine washable and can be reused on different patients.

The Calming Cuddle Blanket is part of therapeutic positioning and when used with other Small Beginnings products, like the Bed Buddy, promotes improved rest and growth. If a baby feels more comfortable and contained, they are more likely to be calm, sleep sounder and gain more weight, which can lead to an earlier hospital discharge.

Small Beginnings produces a wide range of products used in neonatal intensive care units, which are available from CMS. These include positioners, preemie nappies and incubator covers.
