Okay, here’s the deal. Swaddling your baby for the first few months is where it’s at. The Ergo Pouch Cocoon Swaddle Sleep Bag is the ideal solution to help your baby feel cosy and warm, minimising their startle reflex and calming them into sleep. Ergo Pouch is your ‘hands down’ option. If your baby turns out to be a ‘hands up’ sleeper, head over to the options from Love To Dream. Once you’ve got that sorted, choose a tog. Togs are related to the weight of the material, which you’ll choose based on room temperature with eg. Tog 1 being standard and Tog 2.5 being heavier and therefore preferable in the cooler months. If you go lighter in Tog choice, you can always add warmth with extra layers of clothing or tuck your baby in with a tight sheet.
Sleep bags are a good option versus muslin swaddling because while some people are amazing at it and the midwives make it look SO easy in hospital, most parents struggle at wrapping their baby in muslin, and a lot of babies always seem to escape from it. Ergo Pouch designs are foolproof - one zip. It’s a very clever design with two way zips for easy access to change a nappy in the middle of the night, button clasps at the arms for when it's time to transition your baby's arms out (when they show signs of starting to roll). The design allows the swaddle to be firm and tight, but also allows for your baby to have movement with their arms (it's not a straight jacket), but not so much movement to have their startle reflex wake them.
1.0 TOG is designed for year round comfort when temperatures in your child’s room are between 21C° - 24C° (68-75F)
2.5 TOG is designed for cooler times when temperatures in your child’s room are between 17°C and 23°C (64°F and 73°F).
Two in one: converts from a swaddle to a sleeping bag by opening the poppers in the armholes once your baby is able to roll onto their tummy.
Two way zipper: getting your baby in and out of this swaddle is so easy and nappy changes are a breeze. It is also difficult to wriggle out from, creating longer sleeps.
Friendly for hips: the Cocoon Swaddle Bag has a bell shaped bottom so that the hips + legs can flop outwards during sleep making it officially hip friendly.
Super stretchy: there is stretch in all directions which allows for growth spurts, full chest expansion and a very comfortable swaddle for your baby to sleep in.
