'Extra Hug' Belly Band Strap


We created the ‘Extra Hug’ Belly Band/Strap for parents to use with our award winning Sleepy Hugs transitional sleep sacks to give babies that extra ‘hug’ feeling of security. 

Designed to be used as an option for babies that need more security and need a little more help with transitioning out of swaddling. Using the ‘Extra Hug’ Belly Band/Strap with the Sleepy Hugs is a great way to add a little more resistance for babies that may have strong startle reflex.

The ‘Extra Hug’ Belly Band/Strap can be worn on top of the Sleepy Hugs or inside the Sleepy Hugs using the belt loops provided to give the added resistance in the arms to help control the startle reflex.



  • Use the ‘Extra Hug’ Belly Band/Strap only if your baby needs the extra security or extra help with transitioning out of the swaddle.  
  • The ‘Extra Hug’ Belly Band/Strap must be worn snug-fit around the baby’s tummy area (never loose fit).
  • Discontinue use if your baby can remove the ‘Extra Hug’ Belly Band/Strap.
  • The ‘Extra Hug’ Belly Band/Strap is not a medical device. It should not be used for umbilical hernias or other underlying medical conditions.
  • The ‘Extra Hug’ Belly Band/Strap should not be used as a substitute for a compression band and is not suitable for post surgery support.
  • The ‘Extra Hug’ Belly Band/Strap is made from stretchy organic cotton for a soft comfortable fit.
