About Cocoon Swaddles
Award-Winning 2 in 1 Cocoon Swaddle (Cribsie Awards, 2018).
This simple design will keep a baby snug and securely swaddled without the need for complicated wrapping. Snaps in the armholes can be used to convert from a swaddle to a sleeping bag. This feature makes the ergoPouch Cocoon Swaddle & Sleeping Bag a higher value item over other swaddles since it can continue to be used as a sleeping bag.
The ergoPouch Cocoon range is made from breathable, organic cotton and the swaddles are ergonomically designed and super stretchy to allow for natural movement. The bell shaped design allows for sufficient room for babies to move their legs and hips minimizing the risk of hip dysplasia. A 2-way zipper for easy diaper changes is also featured.
Swaddling your baby can help soothe and settle them to sleep by giving them a feeling of containment, similar to the feeling they had when in the confined space of your womb.
In the early days after birth, babies have a startle reflex that can often wake or disturb a sleeping baby – a swaddle such as the Cocoon will help prevent this from disturbing their sleep.
As soon as your baby is able to roll over, you should stop swaddling.
Every baby develops at a different pace, but this usually happens from around 3 months of age. Our Cocoons have been specifically designed to make this transition easy for you. When your baby is ready, just undo the poppers and allow one arm out. Once your baby is used to having one arm free, you can release the other arm and continue to use your Cocoon as a sleep bag.
All our swaddle products are made from a stretchy fabric to allow for natural movement. We find that babies will naturally wriggle their arms and hands into a position that is most comfortable for them. The Cocoon products don’t place arms down at the side like some swaddles do.
Safe sleep guidelines suggest you should have as little as possible in the cot or crib and so we have made our Cocoons available in three tog (warmth) ratings. By choosing the right Cocoon for the temperature of your nursery, you can avoid using blankets altogether.
Our cocoons are suppose to have a firm fit around the shoulder and chest area. It is important that the baby doesn’t go inside the cocoon and cover their face.
A good way to test if it too tight is to see if you can fit 2 fingers inside the neck opening, if you can then it is a correct fit. If you are still uncomfortable with the opening being small we suggest to undo the zipper about 1cm down.
A TOG is a unit of measurement for insulation and warmth of sleepwear and bedding. Put simply, the lower the TOG rating, the lighter the fabric. The higher the rating, the more padded and insulated it is.
You would choose a suitable TOG based on the temperature of the room your baby is sleeping in. Our TOGS are suitable for the below room temperatures:
0.2 and 0.3 TOG = 75ºF+
1.0 TOG = 70ºF+ to 75ºF+
2.5 TOG = 63ºF+ to 73ºF+
3.5 TOG = 57ºF+ to 70ºF+
