Are you in Canada and thinking of buying a Dreamland Baby Sleep Sack? Here's why I think you should! Everyone knows that a swaddled baby is a happy baby... until your happy little burrito is too old for the swaddle. Experts advise parents to stop swaddling a baby once he or she shows signs of trying to roll over. Why? Well, your baby's arms should be free in the event that he or she does manage to roll onto their front. This ensures that baby can use his or her free arms to roll back over again.
Babies can start the attempt to roll over as early as 2 months, which is when you should consider transitioning from a swaddle to a swaddle transition product such as the Dreamland Baby Swaddle & Sleep Sack, which is now available in Canada.
Many parents panic when they learn that they should no longer swaddle their precious little sleeper. Will she start waking up more often? Will he have more difficulty falling asleep? These are valid concerns, especially for parents whose baby was sleeping so soundly when swaddled. Thankfully, there are swaddle transition products that will ease the transition from the swaddle to something safer and more suitable for your baby's developmental stage.
One amazing brand of swaddles and swaddle transition products is Dreamland Baby. This company's genius design utilizes the science of weighted blankets in their baby-friendly swaddle transition products. Weighted blankets are intended to mimic a therapeutic technique called deep-pressure stimulation which relaxes the nervous system, and in turn is believed to aid in a more relaxed sleep.
The problem is that Health Canada advises against the use of loose bedding (such as blankets) in cribs because they can pose a suffocation hazard and have been shown to increase the risk of SIDS. The solution? A safe weighted WEARABLE blanket like the Dreamland Baby Dream Weighted Sleep Sack.
Parents absolutely love how Dreamland Baby's weighted sleep sack helps their babies get a better sleep once they are too old to be swaddled. By increasing serotonin and melatonin levels and decreasing cortisol as well as reducing the moro reflex, this fantastic weighted sleepsack is a favourite among sleep-deprived parents, who report that it helps their baby fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.
This weighted swaddle and wearable blanket combo is intended for 0-6 month-olds and can initially be used to swaddle your baby in the traditional way. Once ready to transition, simply remove the detachable swaddle wing and use it as a wearable blanket or sleep sack.
The Dreamland Baby line also includes swaddle transition products for older babies. Their weighted sleepsack comes in a 6-12 month size as well as a 12-24 month option. Order yours in Canada today to see why parents are in love!
