Home humidifier used to create artificial pouch for baby kangaroos

The humidifier was the perfect little machine to add some warm moisture to the nursery.

A while ago, my wife and I traveled to Australia on our second honeymoon. I cannot tell you how much fun we had. Although the flight was a little long (17 hours!), all the cool things we did and saw while we were there made up for that incredibly long flight.

After lunch one day of our trip, we went to our hotel for a little nap because we were so jetlagged. But before getting into bed, we turned on the news and saw two little baby kangaroos, or joeys on the screen. I couldn't believe how cute they were!

The news reporter said that apparently, a Sunbury, Australia IT in security expert named Karl Dawson created a rocking humidicrib, used at Kilmore shelter named Wild About Wildlife. This device is made to simulate the inside of a momma kangaroo's pouch. Apparently, the device uses a rocking motion that the joeys are used to in the wild while they are being carried around by their mom's.

I thought this was such a perfect invention, especially because just a couple weeks ago, my daughter bought a humidifier  so she could create an ideal environment in the baby's room. The family pediatrician recommended that she get one after my daughter noticed dry skin around Katie's eyes and nose. The humidifier was the perfect little machine to add some warm moisture to the nursery.

After the news story ended, I called my daughter to let her know what I just saw on an Australian news station. I even said I might start calling my granddaughter joey!

  1. I’m loving this initrem of weather, it went from scalding hot, and now it’s making it’s way to freezing cold, but for the few weeks in between we get high 60 s with no humidity. Can’t ask for much better than that! Perfect weather for me as I am an avid golfer.
