Muslin Swaddle Baby Wrap Ideal for Warm Temperatures
Choosing the correct baby wrap is more important than ever in summer. Muslin Baby Wraps are ideal as they are light, breathable but still provide comfort. Parents are often concerned that their baby will over-heat if they are swaddled in warmer weather. But most newborns struggle to sleep well if they are not swaddled. Overheating for a baby can be serious so always note the temperature of where you are when swaddling.
A change in Babies temperature results from the combination of clothing, swaddle wrap and technique, bedding and room temperature. Each of these factors can be controlled and minimised to ensure your baby does not get too hot.
Remember to consider all the layers on your baby – her clothing, her baby wrap and the blankets over the top. It is the total combination of layers, rather than one swaddling layer, that will determine if your baby is too hot or too cold, or just right. Merino Wool clothing is ideal for this as the natural fibre has been shown to help regulate a baby’s temperature. Merino Wool and Muslin is a great summer clothing and swaddling combination.
We recommend using 100% organic cotton wraps, as these breathe better than a synthetic fabric. It is also essential for baby safety that their head is uncovered for sleeping and sleep environment is clear at all times
