Swaddle Wrap

The best way to keep your baby snug and warm

Swaddle wraps are one of the safest methods for keeping your child safe, warm and comfortable each and every night. They provide the ideal sleeping environment and keep babies on their backs during sleep; helping to reduce the risk of SIDS.

The more comfortable your child is during the night, the less they will become irritable and cry – so your entire family can sleep better.

Sometimes it can be difficult to find a quality swaddle wrap which is also affordable. Baby Bedding strives to provide the most reliable children’s products and offer the best value for money.

Every product we stock is chosen based on safety, comfort and style. Browse through our fantastic selection of swaddle wraps and give your child the gift of a perfect night’s sleep.

Choose from a massive selection of wraps

Swaddle wraps come in a range of sizes, materials, colours and designs, so parents can find the perfect addition to any nursery setting. Consider these qualities to ensure the most comfortable sleep for your child:

Materials

It is important that the swaddle wrap is crafted from soft material, which will not irritate the child’s skin. Most parents prefer natural and organic cotton because it is soft, resilient and machine-washable, and allows the child’s skin to breathe naturally; helping them maintain a healthy body temperature through the night.

Style

Swaddle wraps come in various colours and designs, so parents can choose from blues and pinks to match the sex of the child, or traditional browns, whites, yellows, greens and reds to match existing linen or nursery themes.

Wrapping swaddles correctly

There are many different ways to tie a swaddle wrap, but here is just one method taken from SidsandKids.org:

  1. Place baby off-centre (to left or right)
  2. Fold baby’s arm across chest and bring shorter side of wrap across baby’s arm and tuck firmly under baby
  3. Bring larger side of wrap across and tuck under baby
  4. Bring larger side of wrap across and tuck under baby
  5. Bring the bottom of the wrap up on top of baby
  6. Fold the bottom of the wrap under baby
  7. Always sleep baby on their back with head and face uncovered

What clothes can be worn under a swaddle wrap?

It can be hard to judge the amount of clothing to dress your child when swaddling. You should just try to dress your child in the same amount of clothing as you would dress yourself for bed.

A singlet and nappy will keep them cool enough in summer and long-sleeves and pants for the colder winter months. A quality swaddle will provide your child with enough warmth with no added bedding.

Additional uses for swaddles

A swaddle wrap is a versatile mothering tool that can be used for many different applications, which is why you need a durable material that can be machine-washed and reused again. Here are just some ideas:

  • Changing pad

    Wraps can be placed on the floor or table when changing nappies, to provide additional warmth on cold surfaces

  • Play mat
    Place the swaddle wrap on the ground to provide a comfortable and soft play area for the child; just be sure to wash it before wrapping the baby again!
  • Cot cover
    A wrap can be draped over cots or cribs to protect children from the sun or insects..
  • Burping towel
    Don’t ruin another outfit! Wraps can be easily washed, so place them over your shoulder when burping your child to catch any mess.

When it comes to a swaddle wrap, always put safety first!

Here at Baby Bedding, we are dedicated to providing the safest and most reliable children’s products. Take some time to read these safety tips to help you create the best sleeping environment for your child:

  • Make sure the swaddle wrap does not smother the child’s face or block their airways
  • Don’t wrap the child too tightly; it will restrict their movement and could cut off circulation
  • Once the child is old enough to turn themselves over, don’t leave them alone in a restraining wrap
