Sleepy Wings swaddle jacket is an innovative and easy way to wrap your baby for sleep …. without the layers of muslin swaddling! It provides parents assistance with their baby’s sleep, feed and scratching habits. And the unique dummy retrieval built into the jacket, gives parents one more reason for a good night’s sleep!
Slept safely on their back, a baby’s preferred sleep position is to have their arms bent at the elbows, with hands up beside their face. Without restricting this position, Sleepy Wings allows a baby to comfort themselves & self-console using their hands, or a soother (which can be preloaded into the sleep jacket).
In general, swaddled babies stir less during their sleep cycles when their hands are restricted from waking themselves. With their forearms up and adequate flexibility to access their mouths, a baby wearing Sleepy Wings can self settle and soothe without scratching or harming themselves. When worn from birth, a infant will learn to associate its wear with bed time, relaxing when worn in preparation for milk feeds and sleep.
Its versatile uses make Sleepy Wings ideal for warm or cool temperatures; for use over a sleeping bag and for babies who react to being too hot around their torso, such as babies with eczema.
Sleepy Wings are also useful during milk feeds, for dummy retrieval (optional); whilst out and about in the pram or car seat. It can even be worn upside down if baby prefers arms down – just rotate!
The unique design of the oval shaped ribbed opening is the arm holes for both left and right arms. This ribbed opening stretches to provide a snug and secure fit against baby’s shoulders and back.
Sleepy Wings are available in THREE sizes:
SMALL – 3kgs to 6kgs (approximately 3 to 4 months of age)
LARGE – 6kgs to 10kgs (approximately 4 to 10 months of age)
X LARGE – 10kgs+
NOTE: if you are starting your baby in Sleepy Wings from around 5kgs, it is recommended you purchase the next size up (Large) so you get more wear.
