Helping your baby to safely sleep better, for longer, without swaddling.
Our Sleepy Hugs® gives comfort and security to your baby to encourage long, deep sleep. Its unique design allows for full arm movement with just enough security to combat their ‘startle’ reflex, keeping them asleep for longer. And gives parents back their sleep.
"At 7 months my baby was impossible to transition out of his swaddle. A friend suggested sleepy hugs and we haven't looked back. It's amazing! Pat loves his sleepy hugs 😊" - Erica Jade Bell, NSW
"One of the biggest differences I find in your sleep suit versus the others is that breastfeeding is a lot easier, as baby can still wrap their body around you and maintain a more natural position. Wish it had been around for my other two kiddies! Thanks again for a great product!" - Bronwyn Spencer, SA
"The baby loves sleep swaddle is AMAZING! My 7 month old is sleeping so much better I had tried transitioning her with one arm out but she kept waking during the night. She can roll in the new swaddle and still feel secure. I love your product and have recommended them to my mothers group and friends, will be purchasing another in a few weeks!" - Vanessa Dunne, NSW
Ample research has been done on the benefits of wrapping babies to mimic the security of the womb, however from a Chiropractic perspective, we have found that conventional wrapping isn't the best way to go about this. Firmly wrapping a baby with their arms by their sides affects the natural posture of a baby, which is to have their arms up by their face. Although research has yet to be done to determine the effect that this has on the development of their shoulder joints, clinically we have repeatedly seen babies that are wrapped for sleep presenting to the clinic with shoulder subluxations as they fight to free themselves from the wrap.
The Sleepy Hugs sleep suit however does not have this problem. This sleep suit allows your baby to have all of the comforts of womb life, preventing startling themselves awake and also keeping them covered as they get older and kick their covers off on colder nights, while allowing them to be in the natural posture of a sleeping baby with their arms up and hands close to their faces. There are many designs of swaddles on the market, but the Sleepy Hugs sleep suit in our opinion has been carefully designed to keep your baby safe, while still offering all of the benefits of helping baby to sleep. We highly recommend Sleepy Hugs sleep suits to all families who value sleep and healthy development of their precious babies.
