Kind to skin

The Cocooi Babywrap boasts all the fantastic properties of merino wool. With temperature regulating benefits, this wonder wool creates a microclimate around baby, helping to regulate your little sleeper’s temperature and keeping them perfectly cosy throughout the night. The 200gsm super soft merino wool layer is naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial too, making it comfortable and kind for babies with sensitive skin and eczema.

The natural stretch of merino wool is perfect for keeping your baby snug yet still allowing for secure movement, which is why it has been acknowledged by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI) as a hip-healthy product. The Cocooi Babywrap also offers the same benefits of swaddling such as preventing unnecessary wakeups caused by the startle reflex and providing a womb-to-world environment via its snug and comforting sensation.

Step 1 Positioning

Place baby on their back in the centre of the wrap, with baby’s head slightly above the top edge and baby’s legs inside the bottom foot pouch.

Step 2 Fastening

Attach the two shoulder snaps securely. Bring the shorter wing over the baby’s left shoulder and arm, wrapping diagonally across and under the body.  The right arm and shoulder should be placed down, with the long wing wrapping around your baby twice.

Step 3 Securing

Tuck the loose wing into the wrap and adjust the fabric around the neck to allow for complete airflow to the face and cheeks.
