Bonding Cloths

Bonding Squares are provided for Mom's whose babies are
in the NICU (neonatal unit).

Each Mother is given 2 matching squares, 1 is kept with
the baby and 1 is kept on Mom's body; Every visit with
the baby Mom swapes the cloths, now Mom has the
1 with the baby's scent on it, and the baby now has Mom's
scent with them, thus bonding

The Bondng cloths help to keep Mom & Baby bonded by
smell in the times they can't physically touch & be

You can use any pattern you want, Hospitals like the bonding cloths
 to be about 5" x 5". I love the fan & feather pattern, I just think happy
thoughts whenever I see it, so thus, I changed it just a tad bit to fit
closely the measurements specified
