Kangaroo care or wearing your baby in a Kangaroo pouch looks much like a kangaroo carrying their baby in their pouch.  The popularity of this method of care increased in the early 1980's when researchers found that premature infants in Bogata Columbia responded, and even thrived when they were carried in a Kangaroo pouch.
