Sleep in style





When I had my daughter I used the plain old-fashioned white muslin cloths, wrapped origami-style to keep wayward limbs from flying out of control and waking my sleeping princess. But somehow during sleeptime she would turn into a ninja and escape from even the tightest of swaddles. I battled on, won some and lost many. Had I known about cuddly, easy to use and funky Baby Bonkie swaddles, the sleep battle might have been played to a different tune.

From the USA, Baby Bonkie swaddles are made from unique fresh 100 per cent cotton fabrics on the outside and yummy lining inside. With so many styles to choose from, you can’t just have one! They are also easy to use with three simple steps and Velcro to harness, rather than having to rely on deft knots and tucks. In winter bub will stay secure and warm in the matching chenille-lined pods.

Baby Bonkie swaddles are available from Itty Bitty Yuppy in Australia for $48. Baby Bonkie also makes a Bonkie Bag (sleep sack) for older babies in similarly chic designs. These have to be ordered from the US, however.
