In a nutshell
Traditionally your newborn is wrapped tightly in cloth to mimic the warmth and the secure feeling of being inside the womb. Swaddling is an age-old practice found in all cultures. It helps your baby settle down faster and sleep through longer. Sleeping in a Puckababy is a mild form of the traditional swaddling.
In more detail
In a swaddling cloth baby’s arms are tucked in tightly alongside its body. This keeps the baby from flailing its arms about and waking itself up.
However, it’s not without risk. If your child is experiencing hip problems tight swaddling must be avoided at all costs. Tight swaddling may cause heat accumulation or cut off circulation.
The Puckababy swaddle sleeping bags are the light version of tight swaddling. The swaddle sleeping bag fits snugly around your baby like a cocoon. Its arms are wrapped loosely so your baby can no longer startle itself awake. It’s not too tight and not too hot, avoiding such risks as heat accumulation or growth problems of the hips (DDH). Your child needs sufficient room to move to allow a healthy physical development. Moreover, weaning your child off the swaddle sleeping bag is easy.
