About Nurtured by Design Preemies and Children Under Medical Care Healthcare Professionals

The Zaky helps you nurture, bond, and provide sense of security as it simulates the shape, size, touch, and scent of your hands and arms.

With it, your child can relax, be calm, and sleep when you would like to stay and hold him/her, however, you have other responsibilities or the child cannot be held.
