Why should you use our merino & cotton blended gown?

If you love the warmth or merino, but want the cool comfort of cotton, then our merino & cotton blend is ideal for your little one.  It has all the warmth benefits of merino that newborn babies need, blended with the addition of soft, comfortable and cooling cotton.

When should I use merino & cotton blends?

You can comfortably wear our merino & cotton blend all-year-round with clothing alternations underneath, but it is ideal for spring and summer babies.  Merino & cotton blends are also great for day-time sleeping when the heat from the sun is keeping the room warm.

  • I have used several different types of swaddles (or wraps as you call them) over the course of my 3 children, but I just had to email you and let you know that I love your one the most.  It really is so easy to use and fits for much longer than the other merino ones I had.  I have finished having children now, but I will be telling anyone who needs a swaddle for a baby to buy your ones.

  • Thank you for my sleep. I LOVE YOU! I received one of your baby merino swaddles for a baby shower gift, and finally my beautiful baby girl slept through for more than 2 hours at night. I had always wrapped her, but she always managed to get her arms and legs out and then wake up. Having the pocket thing meant she could not get her legs and feet out, then I just had to wrap her arms, and she stayed like that all night long. I will be getting a sleeping bag very soon
