Swaddling a baby shouldn’t be lengthy or complicated. In fact, knowing how to swaddle a newborn is one of the oldest traditions in all of parenting history. Learning how to swaddle with a bamboo blanket is an essential part of life with a newborn. There are so many benefits of swaddling a baby. Swaddling techniques help you recreate the feeling of being in the womb and emulates feelings of warmth and familiarity for newborns, all the while offering you, the parent, peace of mind.

We encourage all customers to read information and watch accredited video’s that educate safe baby wearing. Baby carriers must be worn correctly to avoid any injury. Please follow the “TICKS” acronym on the carrier shop page. You will also receive instructions with your carrier purchase.

We have two types of swaddles, one is made from cotton/bamboo which makes for a very light and soft swaddle for bub. Our other swaddle is a stretch swaddle which is ideal for sleep wrapping. It’s made from bamboo/spandex.

Our cotton/bamboo swaddles are so versatile that you can use them for anything really! They’re so soft and light, they are ideal for all seasons and can be used for shading baby, swaddling, covering up, and mama’s sarong! Our stretch swaddles are slightly thicker in material and offer a beautiful snug feeling for baby’s to sleep. They can still move but the stretch mimicks that womb feeling which is ideal for newborns.

The best way to wash your swaddle is on a cold gentle wash and hung to dry in the shade. Whilst there is no guarantee the swaddle colour will run on it’s first wash, we recommend washing it separately to start with just incase. Do not tumble dry your swaddle.

Swaddling is recommended for ages 0-6 months, but most baby’s will show signs of need one arm out or two arms out by 6. months of age. Carrier wraps are perfect for the early days of having a baby with a minimum weight of 3.6kg – 10kg as per ASTM standards. Baby should always remain kissable and visible.
