Benefits of our Cocoon Swaddle Bag

The ergoPouch Cocoon Swaddle Bag is a popular choice among parents because of its numerous benefits:

  1. Our Cocoon Swaddle Bags are designed to be both easy to use and difficult to escape from. 
  2. It's made from GOTS-certified organic cotton and bamboo, which makes it soft, breathable, and safe for babies to sleep in.
  3. It's designed to mimic the feeling of being in the womb, providing newborns with a sense of security and comfort from birth. 
  4. The Cocoon Swaddle Bag has a two-way zipper, which makes nappy changes easy without requiring the swaddle to be removed completely.
  5. They're TOG rated for warmth to keep a baby snug and securely swaddled without complicated wrapping from day one. 
  6. When a baby shows signs of rolling, the poppers at the shoulders can come undone to transition the baby to the arms out sleeping.

The Cocoon Swaddle Bag meets all Australia and New Zealand safety standards and is reviewed by the Eczema Association of Australasia as a skin-friendly product.

You can read everything you need to know about swaddling and our products via our How to Swaddle Guide and what the difference between our Swaddles and traditional wraps is (hot tip a lot!).

The ergonomic bell-shaped design provides enough room for hip mobility and allows babies to move their legs comfortably and adopt 'frog-leg' position, helping to reduce the risk of hip dysplasia


Benefits for parents

  • Two-way zipper makes for easy nap changes (hello, middle-of-the-night poo explosions!) - you can keep their little arms wrapped inside the swaddle as you change them to minimise sleep disruption;
  • If baby is too warm, undo the lower portion of the two-way zip on your pouch to let air flow through in the early evening. Zip them up later in the evening before you go to bed to keep warmth in overnight.
  • Easily transforms from an arms-in swaddle to arms-out sleeping bag using arm poppers when baby starts to roll;
  • A Cocoon Swaddle Bag can become a positive association very quickly. Your baby will start to recognise the smell and sight of their pouch and associate this with restful sleep. If you consistently use the Cocoon Swaddle Bag as part of your settling ritual, your baby will then be able to transfer this association while out and about. They will quickly understand if they are in their Cocoon Swaddle Bag, it's time to sleep. 

How to use the Cocoon Swaddle Bag

Our Cocoon Swaddle has been designed to simplify your life. So how does it work?

  2. Place baby on the flat surface on top of the Cocoon Swaddle Bag.
  3. Place their legs inside the bag and start to zip up the zipper
  4. Place their little arms across their chest, or if they're wriggling, place their arms down against their body. (keep persisting as they might not like it at the start don't be discouraged)
  5. Zip up the zipper, and voila, your baby is now swaddled. 
  6. When you unzip it to take it off, your baby will most likely perform the cutest stretch when out of their Swaddle. Watch and coo away.
