Occupational Therapist Sarah Twomey is an International Advisor to the International Hip Dysplasia Institute and Founder of Healthy Hips Australia. She explains that there are many benefits to swaddling during the first months of life, but wrapping babies too tightly could be doing more harm than good.
“It provides security and comfort and aides in settling and establishing sleep patterns. However, research indicates swaddling can increase the risk for developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). DDH is a common childhood condition where the hip joint does not fit in the ‘normal’ position due to abnormal development and/or lack of growth of the joint’s ball and socket.”
Twomey was impressed with the COCOOI BABY WRAP design as it is in-keeping with her healthy hips tips, especially due to its patented design allowing for a more snug fit at the top of the wrap, but a looser fit at the bottom allowing for more movement from the hips.
“When swaddling your baby, you should allow room around the hips for movement. The legs should be free to move into the natural frog position.”
AMAZING FEATURES OF MERINO WOOL FOR BABIES
IT BREATHES AND
A unique feature of merino is thatit absorbs perspiration from theskin and releases it into the air. This means your child will never feel clammy since humidity between skin and garment is lowered.
IT CONTROLS TEMPERATUREBabies can lose heat rapidly, as much as four times more quickly than adults. Babies under 12 months have dif culty regulating theirown temperature, even in a warm environment. When temperature is regulated and maintained a baby will become more relaxed, gain weight and sleep longer.
IT REDUCES SKIN
Merino is unlike traditional woolin that each bre has a silky outer layer, creating an extremely soft, ne texture. Super ne merino fabric is comfortable to wear without itch, and safe to use for babies with eczema, allergies and sensitive skin. It forms a natural micro-climate around your baby’s body, keeping them at an ideal temperature in all climates and conditions and keeping their skin dry and less prone to eczema. It’s also lightweight and odour resistant.
IT IMPROVES SLEEP
Medical studies have proven that merino improves the sleep patterns of babies and infants. At the Cambridge Maternity Hospital in 1979, Scott and Richards revealed that babies sleeping on merino settled more quickly, cried less, fed better and gained weight faster.
These unique features of Merino Wool create its own microclimate around your baby, regulating his temperature. In essence, your child becomes perfectly adapted to his sleeping environment.
