The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends parents to stop restraining baby’s arms in a snug swaddle around two to three months or when baby shows signs of starting to roll over. However, many babies are not ready and are unable to sleep well in a loose wearable blanket at this stage. If parents continue to swaddle their baby with arms restrained at this stage, the risk of suffocation increases if baby was to roll over.
To address this issue, our founder, an experienced nurse, created The Transitional Swaddle Sack® with Arms Up and Mitten Cuffs. It is a very important innovation in Safe Sleepwear - especially for babies who can roll over.
Lynette, our founder, has made it her life mission, and the mission of SwaddleDesigns, to help new parents prevent sleep deprivation and exhaustion by providing educational content based on the AAP safe sleep recommendations and to provide safer sleepwear for babies.
