Inside neonatal intensive care units (NICUs), there’s an unexpected companion keeping babies company in the incubator – a colourful, crocheted octopus.

These cuddly toys are used as a form of therapy to help comfort and calm premature babies, according to officials at  Poole Hospital. With the octopi, babies in the NICU experienced better breathing and more regular heartbeats, leading to higher levels of oxygen.

This kit was created with the end result in mind, so all finished projects are safe to donate to hospitals and NICUs.
