Like the PEP Home Bili Light, the Medela Bilibed is designed so that the infant can be placed directly in and on the unit rather than being wrapped in a fluorescent panel. The single therapy light in the bed of the unit is covered by a transparent, waterproof plate. Medela recommends that the unit be used with a disposable soft fabric therapy blanket, called a Bilicombi (#8000336), which covers the clear plate and fastens onto the corners of the unit. The light is directed through the fabric onto the patient. Standard accessory is a soft carry case with a handle (#8000341) for protection and easy transport.
Suggested Substitutions: Wallaby I/II, Ohmeda Billiblanket
