I work in the NW of the UK. Over the past few years we have got a few babies out for cuddles who were not ventilated and did not require cardiovascular support. These are babies with a more mild disease. They were all on servo- controlled mattresses and we had no adverse events. On our unit having umbilical lines in would not prevent cuddles, we just ensure that there is an extra nurse to support moving the baby. Since we started getting babies out for cuddles one of my consultant colleagues was not happy to extend cuddles to those who were ventilated. Having said that we have got babies out for cuddles requiring full intensive care once we have started the conversations about reorientation of care. Again we have had no incidents, 3 nursing staff were involved in all moves.
