 Santa Barbara, CA (Nov. 13, 2013) – Swanling Innovations Inc. delivers a safe swaddle solution with the Slumber Swaddle™ used in conjunction with the Slumber Sheet®.

The recent controversy regarding the safety of swaddling and new recommendations on the best ways to swaddle have left many parents confused, concerned and sleep deprived.

A new study in the journal Archives of Disease in Childhood warns against swaddling the wrong way, because it can cause hip dysplasia. Study author Nicholas Clarke, a consultant orthopedic surgeon at the Southampton University hospital in the U.K., writes:

“Safe swaddling’ with appropriate devices should be promoted because it is recognized that traditional swaddling is a risk factor for DDH [developmental dysplasia of the hip]. In order to allow for healthy hip development, legs should be able to bend up and out at the hips. This position allows for natural development of the hip joints. The babies’ legs should not be tightly wrapped in extension and pressed together. Commercial products for swaddling should have a loose pouch or sack for the babies’ legs and feet, allowing plenty of hip movement and hip flexion and abduction.”
The Slumber Swaddle® used in conjunction with the Slumber Sheet® gives children full range of motion for their hips and legs while also keeping baby safely centered in their crib and facilitating back sleeping. The Slumber Swaddle™ is easy to use and keeps baby safely swaddled and sleeping longer.

The magic of the Slumber Sheet® is that it can continue to be used even after the baby no longer needs to be swaddled and makes that transition smoother for both babies and parents.

“Our goal has been to create products that will truly make a difference in parents’ lives. We are strong believers that a well-rested family is a happy family. And what could be more important than that? The Slumber Swaddle™ was designed to allow parents to use the Slumber Sheet® sooner and give parents peace of mind, knowing they are doing the very best for their baby.” shares Joanna von Yurt, the mommy behind the Slumber Sheet®.
