When you swaddle your newborn they feel safe and secure. This helps you baby sleep longer and deeper. A huge WIN for parents. But as they get older they can no longer be swaddled. Swaddling restricts arm movement, so if they were to roll onto their front they may not be able to roll back again; this can be very dangerous. They also start to develop 'Houdini' skills. Wriggling out of their swaddle and escaping the comfort. A a baby sleep sack will transition them from swaddle to free arms without losing sleep.
The Sleepy Hugs sleep sack is based upon the premise that most babies love to be swaddled as newborns because it gives continuity to the feeling of being in the womb which provides an environment of security for them. However, despite the need for security, not all babies actually enjoy being swaddled.
The Sleep Hugs sleep sack has been designed to allow your baby to move their arms freely while still providing an enclosed, secure feeling that they enjoy. It is designed as a totally enclosed sleep suit but with a slight resistance in the arms so that they can move their arms around freely yet gives them that 'edge' feeling. So, when they experience a startle reflex, they immediately feel secure.
The Sleepy Hugs Original is a uniquely designed baby sleeping bag for babies who have outgrown swaddling or can no longer be swaddled and gives unrestricted arm movement while they sleep, but still need some security to calm their startle reflex.
