The fluffy sea creatures are being credited with calming agitated newborns in Brazil in a ground-breaking project that is taking the country by storm. According to medical staff in Curitiba Maternity Hospital, south Brazil, where the initiative has just been launched, the donated toys are working wonders. “We only just started trialling the idea of placing knitted octopuses into all our incubators with our preterms and we’ve already started to see the difference,” said Ana Bruno Salles, coordinator of the hospital’s neonatal care.
