In 2015 the International Hip Dysplasia Institute acknowledged the Ergobaby Swaddler as a “hip-healthy product".
By two years of age, a child will have spent more time asleep than awake. A healthy amount of sleep is essential for babies as it directly impacts their mental and physical development, as well as happiness. The practice of swaddling has been used for centuries in many different cultures as it recreates a womb-like environment and produces a calming and soothing effect. Research demonstrates that when swaddled correctly, babies are safer since they are more likely to stay asleep on their backs. Swaddling also keeps your little one in REM sleep (the most restorative, deepest sleep) for longer periods of time…so you can enjoy more sleep too!
The Ergobaby® Swaddler is an innovative, ergonomic design that combines several unique features to ensure your baby sleeps safely and soundly. The Ergobaby Swaddler is the only swaddler to feature a patent-pending Healthy Hip Positioner which helps keep baby’s hips in an ergonomically correct ‘frog-leg’ position, as recommended by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute.
The design features a unique ‘removable leg pouch’ which allows for quick and easy nappy changes and use with harness systems commonly found in swings and bouncers. The Ergobaby Swaddler is an all-season sleep solution – simply leave baby’s legs outside the pouch to ensure peaceful sleep in hot weather.
