Aids to help disabled mum

Posted 1 July 2016 in Awards

First time mum Jenny found carrying her baby a worry and changing its nappy especially challenging – you see Jenny has only one functioning arm.

Allan, a volunteer from Remap Derby, solved the nappy changing problem by making an adjustable frame that incorporated a small sling to hold baby’s feet. This frame keeps the legs up in an appropriate position while the nappy is changed.Harness in use2 (960x1280)

He also made a harness for the baby, similar to that used in “reins” for small children, with an attachment ring at the front. Jenny wears a lanyard round her neck which she clips onto the attachment ring when she picks up the baby. This keeps baby nice and safe.
