Ergobaby Sleep Tight Swaddle - world first ergonomic swaddle for baby

Introducing the Ergobaby Swaddler - the safe, easy and effective way to keep your baby sleeping longer and more peacefully.

The Ergobaby Swaddler's innovative features help prevent your baby from startling awake while the ergonomic design allows for natural movement of baby's hips and legs as recommended by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute.

Ergobaby's Swaddler marks the brand’s expansion of its ergonomic design innovations into a new product category. Already a market leader for its baby carriers which support baby in an ergonomic position, Ergobaby has applied this principle to its new Swaddler – the only swaddler to feature a patent-pending Healthy Hip Positioner, which helps keep baby’s hips in the physician-recommended, ergonomically correct “frog-leg” position.

According to the International Hip Dysplasia Institute, “In order for swaddling to allow healthy hip development, the legs should be able to bend up and out at the hips. This position allows for natural development of the hip joints. The baby’s legs should not be tightly wrapped straight down and pressed together. Swaddling infants with the hips and knees in an extended position may increase the risk of hip dysplasia and dislocation.”

Belly Beyond is one of the first stockists in New Zealand to get their hands on the Ergobaby Sleep Tight Swaddlers and they're available to buy right now with our super speedy delivery.

Australian paediatrician Dr Harriet Hiscock agrees.

"Parents who are going to wrap need to learn to do it in a safe way. The baby must be able to fully stretch out their legs.

"The wrap should be tight at the top and looser at the bottom." Tight swaddling around the hips and legs could lead to delayed walking among children born with a hip abnormality, says Dr Hiscock of the Murdoch Children's Research Institute.
