As a parent, when you find something that works, you want to shout it from the rooftop. That’s how we feel about these baby swaddles!
Babyology Managing Editor Mandi swears by these beauties from Ergo Pouch. She loves the fact that her new baby daughter can’t perform a Houdini once zipped in.
The Ergo Cocoon is swaddling made simple, and that’s just what’s needed come sleep time. It’s a zip up baby swaddle, made from stretch organic cotton. So there’s still plenty of scope for baby to move their limbs, but that nasty startle reflex is kept under control.
I’m also a swaddle advocate – my boys slept soundly and peacefully when wrapped. But there always came that tricky time when they no longer wanted their arms swaddled. The Ergo Cocoon has poppers in the arms, so it can transition into a sleeping bag when your baby is ready. It also has a two-way zipper, so nappy changes are quick and it can also be used for a baby in a car seat.
The Ergo Cocoon comes in two sizes: zero to three months, which fits babies up to seven kilograms, and three to twelve months, which fits children from seven to twelve kilos. The swaddles come in beautiful pastel colours – natural, pink, blue and grey, and you can choose from different weights depending on the season. The Ergo Cocoon is available from Urban Baby for $29.95.
