When your swaddled baby begins to show signs of rolling, it is time to transition them to a swaddle with arms-out sleeping for their safety. The Butterfly Cardi is a baby sleep cardigan that is innovatively designed to be a transition aid worn over your baby's swaddle or sleep sack, to help them transition to arms-out with minimal sleep interruptions and maximum sleep comfort. The 0.2 TOG rating makes it a light layer suitable for use over any sleep sack in any room temperature.
The Butterfly Cardi features unique arm pockets to create a sense of containment, the feeling your baby will be used to from swaddling. By gently releasing one arm out of the swaddle at a time and into the pocket of the arms-only infant sleep cardigan, you will be easing your baby to sleep fully arms-out over a period of 10 days, helping them get used to the new sensation as you go. While they wear this arm swaddle with their arms inside the pocket, your baby will also have access to their hands for self-soothing. For babies who may still have a strong startle reflex, the snap closures can be adjusted to make a firmer fit around your baby's torso.
The super stretch in all directions will ensure your baby remains comfortable and allow for full chest expansion when breathing. The position of the Butterfly Cardi on the body will not interrupt the natural sleeping position for healthy hip joint development.
