Eight out of the 27 million babies born in India are underweight (less than 2.5kg). In India, low birthweight babies are discharged even at 1.2 kg. These babies are at high risk for many issues, two of which are hypothermia and infections. Detection of neonatal hypothermia at the right stage by continuous temperature monitoring will reduce neonatal morbidity. And continuous monitoring at home will make doctors more likely to discharge at risk babies earlier.
