The Breath of Life "Bilibed" was developed in Vietnam to treat pathologic jaundice and protect children from hypothermia in very remote areas. The bed has long life high-power LEDs and is cheap and reliable. No disposables or consumables are involved. The small portable bed allows a mother to hold the infant on her lap for bonding and breastfeeding.
