Bibs & Stuff Miracle Blanket Blue
The Miracle Blanket is probably the best-selling Swaddle Blanket in America and recommended by health professionals throughout the world. For new parents, swaddling can look very complex and with all the other new things going on when you bring your baby home, many of them will not swaddle. But the Miracle Blanket makes swaddling simple and allows parents and their babies the opportunity to benefit from swaddling - including helping to ease the transition from the womb to the world by recreating the sensations babies feel in the womb, comforting them and helping to give baby (and parents) a more restful night's sleep.
Available in pink, blue white and natural.
Why Use The Miracle Blanket?
* It is simple to use - simply lie baby onto the opened Miracle Blanket, place baby's arms under each inner flap to secure arms, place feet into the 'pocket', then wrap around baby until there is no loose fabric left. It has no press studs or Velcro that could potentially come loose and scratch baby's delicate skin during the night.
* Research shows that the Miracle Blanket helps to relieve colic by providing a gentle even pressure around the abdomen.
* Swaddling makes breast-feeding easier by keeping baby's arms and legs secured and comfy, making them easier to position, and it calms fractious babies.
* The Moro Reflex is the tendency of infants to "jump" or startle themselves awake for no apparent reason. Most babies do this to some extent; by swaddling, this reflex can be virtually eliminated.
* Infants have a natural instinct when born to try to find a nipple, this is called "the rooting response" . If bedding touches their faces during the night they awaken and become frustrated when they cannot find the potential food source. Swaddling your baby correctly greatly reduces the rooting response.
Can my baby overheat because of swaddling?
Although it is possible for your babies to overheat, it has been shown that swaddling alone does not cause this. Here are a few simple measures that will eliminate this concern altogether:
1) Wrap him/her in the Miracle Blanket and nappy only.
2) To be sure the room in which the baby is sleeping is not too warm (the room should feel comfortable to a lightly dressed adult).
3) If overheating is still a concern, you can wrap your baby in the Miracle Blanket with his/her feet outside of the foot pocket. If your baby's tummy feels overly warm to the touch, or he/she is perspiring, it is important to observe the measures mentioned above.
