With a newborn baby the decision about what to dress them in for bed is not an easy one.
Like adults, every new born baby is different. Some like to feel snug, warm and secure and others like a little more freedom.
So what’s best for your baby?
For newborn babies who like security, swaddling is a great way to comfort them whilst also keeping their startle reflex (otherwise known as Moro reflex) contained. It’s these sudden movements (or startle reflexes) which can often interrupt the sleep patterns of otherwise peacefully sleeping babies. So, in many instances, swaddling means a longer sleep.
Swaddling can also benefit a baby in other ways in other ways including:
- helping baby focus on breastfeeding by keeping his arms and legs out of the way,
- prevent newborn babies from scratching themselves,
- keeping baby’s body warm in the first weeks when the ability to regulate their body temperature is still developing.
Despite having so many benefits, learning to swaddle using a traditional wrap can be daunting, and babies can often wriggle free if the technique is less than perfect.
That’s why we developed the ergoCocoon.
What’s so special about the ergoCocoon?
The ergoCocoon ‘no origami’ wearable swaddle blankets are designed to be both easy to use and difficult to escape from. The simple zip up design will keep baby snug and securely swaddled without the need for complicated wrapping.
The entire range is made from skin friendly, breathable, organic cotton (95%) with elastane (5%) for super stretch and are ergonomically designed with a bell-shaped bottom which provides essential legroom for healthy hip development.
And those two beautiful words…. easy transition!
When baby is ready for a little more freedom - or even to transition out of a swaddle completely - the ergoCocoon easily converts from a swaddle to a sleep sack using the convenient snaps in the armholes.
