What is the function of the arm pocket design?
The main purpose of the Ergobaby Swaddlers unique arm pockets is to keep the arms from startling the baby awake. Additionally,the arm pockets help keep baby swaddled through the night.

Why is it important to Swaddle?
By two years of age,a child will have spent more time asleep than awake. A healthy amount of sleep is essential for babies as it directly impacts their mental and physical development,as well as happiness. Just as you ensure your baby has a safe play environment,it’s important to establish a safe sleep environment. Proper sleep conditions will help your baby rest better,longer,and safer…so you can sleep better too! —Sourced by the National Sleep Foundation The practice of swaddling a baby has been used for centuries in many different cultures due to its various benefits. Swaddling mimics the structure of the womb and helps ease a baby’s transition into the world. Newborns need extensive nurturing during the first 3 months of life; this time is commonly referred to as the fourth trimester. Swaddling reduces spontaneous movements (called reflex motion) that startle your baby awake and keeps your little one in REM sleep (the most restorative,deepest sleep) for longer periods of time. Research demonstrates that when swaddled correctly,babies are safer since they are more likely to stay asleep on their backs and less likely to get caught in loose blankets. Swaddling can have a calming effect that soothes baby. Swaddling helps regulate baby’s body temperature. Swaddling reduces scratching. —Sourced by the 2002 Medical Journal of Pediatrics
Amazing! Very easy to use and keeps baby settled.
Need to be more flexible
Overall it was great. But for maybe one week. After one or two uses the fabric “stretches out “ and it makes swaddling the baby hard because ultimately you want a nice snug wrap but the fabric stretching doesn’t give you that. So then you need to wash it to “shrink “ the fabric back to normal again. But it’s almost impossible to wash and dry in one day so I landed up having to put it in the dryer. Great solution to the loose arms on the fabric however bad idea for the sleep sack. It shrank. The bit that goes inbetween the legs needs to be made adjustable. I have a long baby so this didn’t fit for very long. I also found that maybe the Valcro for the arms should be longer for those smaller babies or mums wanting a tighter swaddle also for the days when the fabric has stretched out a bit. Otherwise it was a great product. Super simple to use, great idea just needs to be a bit more flexible
