Cuddlewrap Swaddling Blanket
The award winning Baby Sense Cuddlewrap is the ultimate swaddling blanket. Its secure design creates a cozy, womb-like feeling for baby and prevents the involuntary, jerky movement of the arms and legs of young babies that can wake up your infant. The clever heart shape is designed for a snug fit with a neck area cut out so that their arms can be snugly wrapped near to the body and face with no need for poppers, Velcro or ties. The deep hug of the stretchy cotton imitates the womb environment that ensures your baby feels as cozy and secure as those last days in the womb.
The Cuddlewrap’s secure design prevents the startle reflex* that can wake up your infant. The clever heart shape is designed for a snug fit with a neck area cut out so that their arms can be snugly wrapped near to the body and face with no need for poppers, Velcro or ties. The deep hug of the stretchy cotton imitates the womb environment that ensures your baby feels as cozy and secure as those last days in the womb.
*Startle reflex or Moro reflex is an involuntary, jerky movement of the arm and legs that is outgrown between 3-6 months
- breathable: 100% cotton and moisture wicking fabric that helps reduce the risk of overheating
- safe: No poppers, Velcro or ties to ensure you can’t swaddle too tight
- practical: Perfectly heart shaped that is suitable for over and under arm swaddling
- comfy: The natural stretch of the fabric recreates the comforting and soothing feeling of being in the womb
- durable: Machine washable stretchy cotton that keeps its shape
- Sleep: The evidence is overwhelming that babies who are swaddled sleep longer and better. Swaddling inhibits the immature startle reflex – a common cause of night wakings in young
- Calm: Swaddling is the best way to imitate the tight hug of the womb environment. It provides deep pressure (the feeling of a consistent firm cuddle) which is why swaddled babies cry significantly less. Swaddling is thus an excellent solution for a colicky baby
- Feeding: Difficult feeders, especially those who fight at the breast, tend to feed better with more coordinated sucks and swallows when they are swaddled. (Journal of Human Lactation, 2001)
- Lie the baby with her neck on the cut out section of the Cuddlewrap, indicated with baby face label
- Fold the lower tip of the Cuddlewrap upwards
- Wrap the short side of the Cuddlewrap over the baby’s torso with her hand positioned near her face
- Wrap her other arm near the face against the body and continue to wrap right round the baby with the elongated side of the Cuddlewrap
The Cuddlewrap can be used from newborn to around 3 – 4 months of age, depending on the baby’s size. At around this age, most babies outgrow swaddling and no longer need to be swaddled for sleeps.
- Do not wrap baby too tight.
- To check if you have got it right, you should be able to slide your hand down the front of the wrap when baby is completely swaddled.
- Ensure baby is not too warm.
- Under no circumstances must the wrap cover baby’s mouth or face.
- Keep arms snug, but legs flexible with room to move.
