A new insulating material (Thinsulate) was used to provide thermal protection for newborn infants. Infant core temperature was measured as part of a randomized study comparing the efficacy of an insulated bunting, an insulated hat, and routine management. The new bunting was superior in terms of its ability to maintain the infant's core temperature on arrival in the regular nursery. Nursing staff and parental acceptance was high, and further consideration should be given to defining the role of this new insulating material in the care of the newborn.
