One in ten babies is born premature and in resource limited regions, they are highly susceptible to infection, with high mortality rates. Kangaroo Care has become a successful technique to turn that statistic around. The mom (or dad) snuggles the baby next to the chest 24/7, moving the baby only to nurse.

A cheeky young kangaroo gets what looks like a stern telling off from his long-suffering mum. She grabs the joey by the shoulders in what looks like an attempt to catch his attention. The intimate scene between mother and baby were caught on camera by John Eastcott and Yva Momatiuk at the Yuraygir National Park in New South Wales, Australia. Yva said: 'Getting such intimate pictures with the animals interacting and not paying attention to the photographers was most rewarding. '
