The Merino Kids babywrap swaddle and hat are made from 100% superfine merino wool. The blanket lets you adjust the size to fit snug around baby's body, fitting perfectly across baby's chest. Merino wool stretches to your baby's body shape and holds firmly in place.
Finished with a smooth, non-irritant surface, the fabric breathes, absorbing and releasing moisture in warm conditions and insulating through cooler times, creating its own micro-climate around the body, regulating baby's temperature. Suitable for all seasons, the unique wool construction stops baby from overheating or waking up cold.
Extremely easy to use, with a perfect, no-fuss fit every time. The diagonal-wing design lets you swaddle baby gently yet securely in three quick steps.
Additional features: - Hip-healthy - No arm restraints, velcro or fasteners - A pouch allowing for quick nappy checks and changes during the night without disturbing the baby - An innovative safety belt vent allows the baby to be swaddles when travelling in a car-seat or buggy.

Swaddling your baby safely
Swaddling can reduce crying and help your baby to have a more settled sleep pattern; however it’s important to ensure you swaddle correctly so baby is safe and healthy.
Take care not to swaddle your baby too tightly. To allow their hips to develop properly baby must be able to bend their legs up and out at the hips, so make sure you leave plenty of room for movement. Swaddling too tightly and restricting baby’s movement can increase the risk of hip dysplasia and dislocation.

Merino Kids was founded in 2003 by Amie Nilsson, after too many sleepless nights with her first baby. Amie found that synthetic fabrics were causing heat rash and discomfort to her daughter and so after a long and fruitless search to find a natural-fibre solution, working in conjunction with the medical profession, Amie used her design background to invent her own.

The range is made from the finest Merino wool, it is silky and soft, kind to delicate skin, easy to care for, safe and features the popular award-winning Cocooi Swaddle and Go Go Bag.
Merino wool ‘breathes’ and controls moisture, creating a more comfortable micro-climate between body and bedding and is proven to be a safer sleep alternative to synthetic products. It’s unrivalled and natural ability to respond to changes in temperature helps keep your cherubs cool when it is hot, and warm when cold, offering you peace of mind.
Medical studies have shown that babies and infants sleeping in or on Merino settle more quickly, sleep longer, feed better, cry less and gain weight faster.
