In 2015 the International Hip Dysplasia Institute acknowledged the Ergobaby Swaddler as a “hip-healthy product. For more information visit www.hipdysplasia.org
By two years of age, a child will have spent more time asleep than awake. A healthy amount of sleep is essential for babies as it directly impacts their mental and physical development, as well as happiness. The practice of swaddling has been used for centuries in many different cultures as it recreates a womb-like environment and produces a calming and soothing effect. Research demonstrates that when swaddled correctly, babies are safer since they are more likely to stay asleep on their backs. Swaddling also keeps your little one in REM sleep (the most restorative, deepest sleep) for longer periods of time…so you can enjoy more sleep too!
The Ergobaby® Swaddler is a simple and effective way to ensure your baby sleeps safely and soundly. The easy-to-use patented design is recommended by mums and medical experts alike and is acknowledged by the International Hip Dysplasia institute as a ‘hip healthy’ product.
The Swaddler incorporates two innovative and distinct design features – the escape proof ‘arm pockets’ and an ergonomic patented ‘healthy hip positioner’. The ‘arm pockets’ prevent startle reflex by wrapping baby’s arms in the fetal position of ‘hands to heart’. The ‘healthy hip positioner’ secures baby’s hips in an ideal position for healthy development while the loose leg pouch offers space for natural leg movement and access for quick and easy nappy changes.
Packaged in pairs and available in two sizes, the Ergobaby Swaddler is made of soft and breathable 100% cotton terry knit, that stretches with any movement and helps regulate baby’s body temperature for maximum comfort. Keep reading for more features and benefits.
