Innovations in Better and Safer Sleep for Baby

Most parents understand babies sleep better and longer when swaddled. It is important for parents to know when and how to transition from a swaddle to a wearable blanket.

The American Academy of Pediatrics urges parents to stop restraining baby’s arms in a swaddle at three months or when baby shows signs of attempting to roll over, and to start using a wearable blanket. However, many parents feel their baby is not ready and they continue to swaddle longer, which increases risk of suffocation if baby was to roll over when swaddled.

The Transitional Swaddle Sack® with Arms Up and Mitten Cuffs is an important innovation in Safe Sleep - especially for babies who can roll over. It bridges the gap between a snug swaddle and a loose sleeping sack.

The Swaddle Sack with Arms Up design supports multiple natural sleep positions and partially suppresses the Moro (Startle) Reflex while providing swaddle comfort and support, and if baby rolls over onto tummy, the design allows baby to use their arms to lift their torso to reposition their head to get access to air. The foldover mitten cuffs allow parents to open the cuffs, so baby can self-soothe, or close the cuffs to protect baby from facial scratches. The Swaddle Sack is the perfect transitional swaddle and the missing step in current safe sleep programs.

Please consider the following solutions for a good night's sleep from birth to 18mo:

Every baby has unique sleep preferences that change as they grow and develop. The Omni Swaddle Sack with Wrap is convertible and designed to provide flexibility, comfort, and support. For babies who prefer one arm out when swaddled, the sleeve will help keep baby’s arm warm and the mitten cuff may be worn open or closed. For babies who enjoy sucking on their hand, parents can open one or both mittens to allow baby to self-soothe. The cuffs may be closed if the caregiver is concerned about facial scratches.

When transitioning from a swaddle, many babies sleep better with the snugness and unique sleeve design of the Transitional Swaddle Sack, while other babies prefer a traditional wearable blanket such as our zzZipMe Sack®. It is important for parents to consider both options, so they can make the best choice for their baby. Our goal is Better Sleep and Safer Sleep. Together, we can create safer sleep for Babies to Sleep, Grow, and Thrive.
