The Transitional Swaddle Sack® features unique arms up sleeves with foldover mitten cuffs that may be worn open or closed. It’s convertible and easy to use, and an important innovation for babies who can roll over, because it allows baby to use his or her arms to push up to reposition their head.
The Transitional Swaddle Sack is designed to bridge the gap from snug swaddle to loose fitting sleeping sack. When baby is ready to transition from classic snug swaddling, but not yet ready for a sleeveless wearable blanket, the Transitional Swaddle Sack is a great option to (1) keep baby snug and warm, (2) allow baby the use of his or her arms, and (3) allow baby to self-soothe by sucking on his or her hands.
The Transitional Swaddle Sack is the ideal transition swaddle with partial suppression of the Moro (Startle) Reflex. The arms up sleeve design is a safer sleep option, because if baby rolls over, the design allows baby to use his or her arms to lift baby’s torso and reposition his or her head to get access to air.
The Transitional Swaddle Sack is perfect for babies who prefer to sleep with arms up. The Transitional Swaddle Sack supports baby in a natural sleep position helping baby feel secure and sleep better, and our design is recognized as Hip Healthy because it allows room for baby’s knees and hips to flex.
It’s easy to use. For best suppression of the Moro reflex fold the mitten cuffs closed and then simply place baby in the sack and zip up! The Transitional Swaddle Sack features a 2-way zipper so diaper changes are easy, just unzip from the foot to access the diaper.
The uniquely shaped arms up ¾-length sleeves are not full length, so baby’s arms will be close to body when mitten cuffs are closed for swaddle snugness. The foldover Mitten Cuffs may be worn open or closed, parents can open one or both cuffs, so baby can self-soothe, or close the cuffs to protect baby from facial scratches. Babies who can self-soothe are calmer and sleep better. If you pull the baby’s arms all the way through the sleeves, the sleeves will be at elbow length and will provide less suppression of the Moro Reflex.
The ergonomic design features a snug midsection to provide swaddle-like support and snugness to reassure and comfort baby.
