Our crocheted umbilical cord ties are a traditional, gentle alternative to the standard plastic cord clamps. Hand-crocheted from 100% cotton yarn, these ties are gentle on newborns delicate skin, far less likely to get caught on clothing and nappies and they won't dig into you or your baby during those precious skin-to-skin cuddles.
All Mother Nurture cord ties come autoclave sterilisied and are ready to use straight from the pack.
Please note: As these cord ties are very difficult to dry completely once wet, they best suit families who plan on delaying the first bath. It is recommended that a newborn only be wiped clean with a cloth until the cord stump falls off, at which point they can then have a proper bath.
It is important to keep the umbilical cord stump and surrounding skin clean and dry in order to help prevent infection. Please speak to your midwife or doctor if you have any questions or concerns about this.
Umbilical cord ties should only be used on healthy infants born at term.
