Crochet powder: 60 models, photos and easy step by step

For those who look, crochet powder is just another kid’s toy. But for premature babies, they go far beyond that. And you know why Crochet powders are used to soothe and soothe premature babies so that they feel back in the womb. Learn more about crochet octopus:

When handling the tentacles of the octopus, the baby feels the same as if it were touching the umbilical cord. The idea to bring crocheted dusts to neonatal intensive care units came from the Octo project in Denmark in 2013. The volunteer group sews the octopuses and donates to the premature babies from 16 hospitals across the country.

The medical team at Aarhus University Hospital, the first recipient of the project, saw a significant improvement in the respiratory and cardiac systems of infants and an increased level of oxygen in the blood. The friendship and complicity between octopuses and toddlers led to the project expanding into another 15 countries around the world and even reaching Brazil.

But not only for premature babies, but also for babies who are born at the right time, crochet powder can also be nice gift options. After all, ensuring a little more peace, security and protection doesn’t hurt anyone, right?

However, to be safe for babies, crochet hooks must be made with 100% cotton yarn and the tentacles must not be more than 22 cm long. The stitches should also not be wide open to prevent the baby from holding his little fingers. Another important detail is to sterilize the octopus before giving it to the baby.

The hospital itself is responsible for hygiene when making donations. But when it comes to giving someone a gift or selling the octopus, it is important to sterilize the octopus by washing it in hot water of at least 60º. All of these guidelines are important to ensure the safe use of squid by babies and to ensure that they can make the most of this experience.
