Golisano Children's Hospital / NICU / NICU Cuddler Program

NICU Cuddler Program

Understanding the importance of infants being held and realizing that several of our parents are unable to stay for extended periods of time with their infants due to work schedules and other obligations, we have implemented the "Cuddlers Program."

  • Cuddlers are volunteers trained to rock and hold babies in the NICU.
  • Your doctor and/or nurse decide when a baby is ready for a Cuddler.
  • Ask your baby's nurse or the Child Life Specialist for more information.
