There are so many benefits to swaddling your baby, and while the range of swaddles out there can be confusing, one swaddle method stands out as being super easy and is certainly gaining in popularity.
The idea of popping your little one in a 'snuggly pod' makes sense, they are easy to use and also very quick. All you need to do is unzip the 'pod', place your baby inside, and close the zip. Super Easy.
Babies feel comfortable inside the snuggly pod, as it is secure enough to stop the 'startle reflex', but allows enough room for them to move. They can also move their arms, but their arms remain inside the pod.
A couple of important points to consider though:
1) Make sure that the swaddle pod is made form a 100% natural fibre. Merino is the best as it is both stretch enough as well as 'breathes' to help keep any moisture away from the baby. It creates the perfect snuggly, warm & dry swaddle.
2) Make sure their is plenty of room for the babies hips and that the pod is wide enough to allow for 'healthy hip' movement. All Snuggly Merino swaddle pods are extra wide at the base to allow plenty of room for movement.
3) Look for a quality made product that use quality zips. All Snuggly Merino swaddle pods use YKK zips only.
That's about it, a good swaddle pod will help your baby sleep longer, is super easy to use and since ours are 100% ZQ Merino, they are snuggly warm and cosy.
