Introducing the Whimzy Baby collection of swaddles - the perfect way to keep your little one snug and secure. Our swaddles are made with a blend of 66% rayon from bamboo, 28% cotton, and 6% spandex to make them soft, stretchy, and breathable, providing a sense of security and warmth that mimics the feeling of being in the womb.
Our swaddles come in a standard size of 47 x 47", ideal for newborns. This size ensures a soothing and calming experience for your baby and prevents any startle reflexes from waking them up.
Tips for Choosing the Right Baby Swaddle
Look for soft, breathable jersey stretch cotton or bamboo swaddles to keep your baby comfortable and relaxed. As we mentioned above, our swaddles are designed with these fabrics. So you choose them without any worries!
When you choose a baby swaddle, ensure it is easy to use and comfortable enough for your baby. Our swaddles withstand multiple washes and uses without losing its shape or softness.
Swaddle Care Instructions
Here are some care instructions for swaddles:
- Always wash your swaddles before using them for the first time to remove any dirt or residue from the manufacturing process.
- Check the care label for washing instructions and follow them carefully. Most swaddles can be washed in a washing machine on a gentle cycle using mild detergent. Avoid using fabric softener or bleach.
- To prevent damage to the fabric and ensure longevity, it's best to air-dry your swaddles. However, if you use a dryer, select a low-heat setting to avoid shrinkage or damage to the fabric.
- After washing, make sure your swaddles are completely dry before storing them. Keep them in dry places such as a drawer or closet to prevent mould, dust and dirt.
