Why Swaddle? 

Back to the Basics of Nurturing
Swaddling has been practiced by almost every culture for thousands of years. Western societies, especially the United States, moved away from swaddling in the last century. But with the help of modern research that proves swaddling helps babies sleep better, it's making a comeback as parents, caregivers, and pediatricians learn its many benefits. 

Swaddling:

  • Helps babies feel safe and secure while adapting to life outside the womb
  • Provides a key element to the "4th Trimester" that is so highly touted in recent infant care publications
  • Promotes longer periods of quality sleep (QS) for newborns and infants, important for health and development. 
  • Helps control the startle reflex and spontaneous arousals of newborns and infants to help improve sleep patterns
  • Helps reduce fussiness and stress
  • Reduces the risk of SIDS by letting babies sleep on their backs more comfortably
  • Can help reduce colic symptoms by improving the amount of quality sleep

The True Womb Advantage

  • 100% money-back guarantee

Swaddling Problems

In our experience, current swaddling solutions don't solve the majority of sleep and colic issues that newborns and their parents have. True Womb is determined to change the staus quo.

     Commercially available swaddles focus on the arms but not the legs, which are a key factor in helping babies feel secure.

  • Like the arms, legs also twitch, jump and flail, causing the "startle reflex"
  • Current swaddles fail to return babies' legs to the fetal position after kicking/stretching

    Poor wrapping techniques with blankets cause swaddles to become loose

  • Can be difficult to use swaddle blankets properly
  • Babies can kick out and wiggle free
  • Loose blankets in crib are a suffocation hazard

     Over-wrapping with too many layers can cause overheating

  • Overheating is dangerous and can increase the risk of SIDS
  • Babies that are overheated may appear to sleep more but it is probably not quality sleep (QS)

      Current swaddles do not emulate the true feeling of the womb closely enough for many babies

  • Many babies continue to have problems feeling secure enough to get the necessary amount of quality sleep (QS)
