Using a stretchy wrap to swaddle your newborn can help settle your baby more quickly. Swaddling, is one of Dr Harvey Karp's 5 S's to help calm and settle a baby. Stretchy swaddles are usually made from cotton or merino and we highly recommend merino as it can help to regulate baby's temperature. Read our article, 'choosing the right wrap for your baby' to help you decide which type of swaddle is best. Swaddling in a cotton stretch wrap is easy with the right technique - watch our swaddling instructions video to learn how to use the DUDU technique to wrap your baby in a stretch swaddle. Choose from super soft merino wraps or stretchy jersey cotton wraps. We also have a range of organic cotton wraps from The Sleep Store, Woolbabe, Nature Baby and Wilson + Frenchy. A stretchy swaddle blanket can also double up as a buggy blanket and is a super versatile gift for baby. If you need help choosing, check out the swaddle buying guide.
