A: Newborn babies have a startle reflex that can wake them whilst sleeping. Swaddling a baby helps contain their startle reflex, and can also soothe and settle them to sleep by giving them a feeling of containment, similar to the feeling they experience in the confined space of your womb. Babies can be swaddled until they show signs of rolling, at which point they should be transitioned to arms-free sleeping for safety.
Q: Why buy a Cocoon Swaddle Bag?
A: Traditional swaddling with a muslin cloth or blanket can be tricky, especially during 3am nappy changes! Our Cocoon Swaddle bag is a no-origami solution to swaddling your baby safely and comfortably. Our Cocoon Swaddle Bags are TOG-rated for warmth, eliminating the need for additional blankets and therefore providing a safer sleep environment.
Q: Can my baby sleep with her arms up in an Cocoon Swaddle Bag?
A: All our swaddle products are made from a stretchy fabric to allow for natural arm movement, which is important for your babies development. We find that babies will naturally wriggle their arms and hands into a position that is most comfortable for them to self-soothe. The Cocoon Swaddle Bag promotes the optimal sleeping position for healthy shoulders, reduces the risk of developing hip dysplasia with its bell-shaped design, and allows for full-chest expansion when breathing.
Q: What do I do when my baby is ready to roll?
A: Our Cocoon Swaddle Bags feature stud-poppers at the arms, to release your babies arms as soon as they show signs of wanting to roll. This means you get longevity out of the product, and your baby can continue to sleep in the bag they’re accustomed to. Just size up when your little grower is ready for their next size!
