swaddling your new baby. Marley was wrapped in a good old piece of muslin and I had decided that this baby would be no different, after all we had hundreds of the things.
So along came India and lots of not so settled nights it was a bit of a shock to the system..... we had some wraps lent to us by a friend which promised to be great but once we had finished figuring out what bit goes where and which pieces of velcro attached to each other she would have wriggled her way out and we would find ourselves starting over again. Another day whilst wondering a baby store we stumbled upon another version that we hoped might be the answer to our prayers only to find she really hated it and wouldn't sleep in it at all - this one is now neatly folded in our wardrobe.
The zip also goes from the top and the bottom so if that night time nappy change really can't be avoided then bub can be kept all tucked up and warm on the top half - I always find if their arms stay wrapped they stay more sleepy, there's nothing like arms being freed to bring on a stretch and a big wake up smile.....lovely as it is it's not quite so welcomed at 3am!
The ergoCocoon is made from a beautiful organic cotton with a hint of spandex which makes its snug but stretchy and it's nice and thin which makes it perfect for the Australian summers. The other great feature of this product is the fact it has poppers at the arms to that when your baby is transitioning from being wrapped to a sleeping bag you can continue to use it and the fact that the larger size goes up to 12 months or 11kg means the transition should be easier and you will save money by not having to go out and buy yet another baby product quite so soon.
Wrigglepot as her website is great and her customer service wonderful (my first one arrived on my doorstep the very next day after being in touch with her and lets face it when we decide we need these baby things we need them yesterday!) I'll leave you here with a picture of India looking very happy in her ergoCocoon.
