Hi Chas

The best option is to Kangaroo care your son. Put him skin to skin on your or mom’s chest for the biggest time of day possible. Premmies struggle to maintain their temperature, but KMC is wonderful. You can do this till your baby becomes to heavy and uncomfortable (about 3,5 to 4 / 5 Kg). Visit www.littlesteps.co.za for more info on KMC

Good luck
