Guide to swaddling safely

Groswaddle_Hip-Helathy-Swaddling-Guide

The Hip Healthy Groswaddle is a cleverly shaped jersey wrap with hip healthy pocket that goes around your baby with no need for poppers, Velcro or ties. Just enough fabric to keep your baby snug, but not so much that they get too hot. Here is our quick guide on how to use the Hip Healthy Groswaddle:

  • Place baby onto open swaddling wrap, fold in the top of the wrap so that the fabric is in line with the nape of the neck, legs should be then be placed inside the hip healthy pocket in a natural “froggy” leg position.
  • Make sure that the pockets upper material is around the baby’s tummy.
  • Holding the upper right hand side of the swaddle; wrap the fabric snugly over baby’s arms, and tuck the fabric under baby’s body, leaving fabric loose around the legs.
  • Holding the upper left hand side of the swaddle; wrap the fabric snugly around baby’s arms and underneath torso, leaving fabric loose around the legs.
  • Ensure that both legs can freely flex.

The baby’s weight combined with the stretchy fabric help to keep the swaddle wrap securely in place.

How to wash your swaddle

All Groswaddles can be machine washed at 40°C. They can be hung out to dry or tumble dried on a low setting. As with all cotton goods, we have designed our Groswaddle to allow for up to 5% shrinkage. If your child has any allergies and you wish to wash your Groswaddle at 60°C, you should allow for a little more shrinkage. You can iron your Groswaddle on a low heat if desired. We recommend that you wash dark colours separately for the first few washes. We also recommend that you wash your Groswaddle with a detergent that is free from bleaching agents in order to retain the original colours.
