Local Baby Cuddlers

Local Baby Cuddlers
I had quite a few people ask me if we have local(Central Illinois) "baby cuddlers." The volunteers go into the NICU or nursery at the hospital and help hold and swaddle sick babies. Research shows touch increases the chances of a good outcome, but the nurses cannot hold all the babies all the time.
If you are interested in becoming a baby cuddler at Methodist Medical Center call Tammy Speck at (309) 671-8242.

If you are interested in becoming a baby cuddler at OSF St. Francis Medical Center, go to and click on Volunteer Services.
In order to be considered for this role, you must have volunteered at OSF for a time-per the request of NICU.
