Babies love to be swaddled! By containing motor activity and mimicking the security of a mother’s womb, swaddling comforts babies and results in less crying, more stable heart rates and the ability to sleep through the startle reflex.

In a systematic review of swaddling published in Pediatrics in 2007, authors found swaddled infants arouse less and sleep longer. Preterm infants have shown improved neuromuscular development, less physiologic distress, better motor organisation, and more self-regulatory ability when they are swaddled… (Swaddling) is supportive in cases of Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome and infants with neonatal cerebral lesions.” (Swaddling: A Systematic Review van Sleeuwe et al, Pediatrics, Vol. 120 No. 4 October 1, 2007, pp. e1097-1106).

 

Benefits of the Dandle WRAPTM Stretch vs blankets

  • High-performance fabric with 3-way stretch that allows freedom of movement with return to midline flexion
  • A pouch to hold the baby securely and to help maintain lower extremity flexion
  • Wide wings that support the shoulders in flexion and encourage hand to mouth self-comforting behaviours
  • Velcro® fasteners on pouch and wings that can be adjusted independently of each other to meet baby’s individual needs
  • Fabric that breathes, yet is absorbent, making it ideal for agitated babies or those with NAS
  • Plenty of room between the pouch and the wings for lines or tubing
  • 360 proprioception and containment to calm the baby and promote neurodevelopment
  • More secure swaddle calms babies, eases feeding time and transportation for caregivers and parents
Cozy Cub Baby

Consider using the Dandle WRAP Stretch and Cozy Cub together to provide 360º sensory input, additional containment to mimic intrauterine conditions, whilst providing full visualisation and immediate access to the infant. View the Cozy Cub here.

Why is the high-performance fabric so important?

The Dandle ROO2 high-performance fabric gives the baby an experience that is supportive, safe and dynamic, rather than static. The high-performance fabric:

  • Has a 3-way stretch that returns to its original shape
  • Is soft, smooth, breathable, moisture-wicking and highly absorbent
  • Does not insulate body heat, making it ideal for use in hot and humid environments
  • Washes well even in industrial machines with minimal shrinkage and pilling
  • Guaranteed for 25 launderings when Laundering Instructions are followed
