Since he was a premature newborn, he needed special care. He found the best way to regulate his temperature was by staying on his father’s chest.
Parents would do anything for their children, even more so when their little ones need urgent support. This is what this exemplary father does, who, a few minutes after his son was born, placed him on his chest to provide the infant with the warmth he needed.
From what can be seen in photos that have recently gone viral on social media, it looks like the little baby needs special care and equipment to be able to breathe while he rests on his father’s chest, practicing the so-called kangaroo method.
Although the official information on this case is unknown, according to posts on social media and the press (especially in Nigeria), a premature child had been born and needed special attention to make it through the first days of life.
According to Twitter account @MedicalFactsHub, “this premature baby is placed on the father’s chest immediately after birth, because his chest regulates the baby’s temperature better than an incubator.”
Therefore, the right place for a newborn with these characteristics is on his father’s chest. Meanwhile, it’s assumed that the baby’s mother was still recovering from the c-section she had just undergone to deliver her baby.
Although the family may have experienced tense moments at the moment, the baby was able to recover and develop properly. This could be seen in another photograph of this sweet family, which has also become popular online recently.
The little one’s transformation has been impressive. After weighing very little and being in a delicate condition, just a few hours after being born, he’s already a healthy child who can continue to develop without any obstacles. His father will be there to accompany him every step of the way.
