The one thing you learn super quickly when you’re pregnant and start reading all the baby blogs is the benefits of swaddling. Swaddling helps your baby feel safe and secure as they adjust to life outside of the womb. Additionally, when the baby is swaddled it also helps to prevent them from flailing their arms or her legs, which can trigger her startle reflex. When I heard about the GroSnug, I knew it would be a perfect addition for Baby W and it’s only about two short weeks now until I will use it. How crazy is that!?
The GroSnug is basically a two in one swaddle that is suitable for newborns. The design allows for you to put your baby’s arms either in or out. I love that there is no folding necessary – for a newbie like me, swaddling late at night seems like it could take a while to master. This easy design with a long zip makes swaddling very simple!
The Grosnug is extremely easy to use with no folding needed and a long zip that opens from the bottom for nappy changes. The unique design creates space for Hip-healthy natural leg position.
