What is Summer Lite-weight merino:
Our stunning lite-weight merino collection has all the warmth benefits that newborn babies need to regulate temperature, it's ultra-soft and ultra-lite-weight, so you get natural merino that is lite enough to layer with whatever you want; for example: during extra warm nights, you might like to wear just a pure merino singlet and nappy underneath your fitted wrap, then as the temperature cools down, start adding a nightgown, sleepsuit and singlet.
If you think your baby might be sensitive to wool - then buy this ultra-soft, lightweight merino as it is only 17 micro merino (which means it's best for sensitive skin, especially during the warmest months) Learn more about the differences in our merino weights.
Because babies spend so much of the first few weeks sleeping, it's important to dress them in natural fabrics like merino. Sleeping with merino against their sensitive newborn skin will keep them at the perfect temperature each and every sleep.
Our 100% merino fitted wrap:
It's a proven fact that babies loved to be swaddled/wrapped.
Our swaddle is superior to all other wraps on the market because we have eliminated all the guesswork and made it easy to use. Simply slip your baby into the hip-healthy body pocket and wrap the wings around your precious bundle. The super-soft merino stretches to form a snug fit around your little one making them feel safe, secure and warm - no folding, zips or Velcro required.
Hip-healthy - Our body pocket is wide enough to allow the baby to actively flex the hips with excessive restraint, while also allowing for good hip abduction and rotation. Watch the video below to see that the hips can naturally fall into the "frog position" which helps prevent hip dysplasia.
Our classic merino onesies are sized perfectly to fit right from the start of life. They are a great one piece to use against your newborn skin, without adding bulky layers for the first few months of life. With strong nickel-free domes along the bottom, nappy changes are easy. Plus our onesies are simple to get on and off with the envelope neckline. Available in sleeveless & long-sleeve.
During the warmer months, they might be all you wear over the nappy, and then as the seasons change, you can use to layer as needed.

Merino should be used for all newborn babies 365 days of the year for night-time sleeping. In fact on those warmer nights, it works BETTER than cotton to help regulate temperature and keep your newborn baby cool. Newborn babies can not regulate temperature for around 12 weeks of life - this means they might be cold even when it's hot in the house. So it is really important to use merino against the skin so the merino garment can do the job for them.
Merino will draw the moisture away from your newborn delicate skin when warm and then as the temperature drops (between 3-5am) the merino will push the warmth back into the skin - so they don't wake up because they are cold. If merino hadn't been invented by nature, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was invented by magic.
