Merineo was created in consultation with experienced midwives to develop a swaddling solution to help babies settle. The design evolved with interior wings sewn into a contemporary sleeping bag, creating a snug environment akin to the womb.
We have 2 Merineo's for newborns aged up to 2 months. Which one you select will depend on the size of baby and how snug you like baby to be swaddled:
the 2 1/2 - 4kg size is a snug fit for newborns, and
the 3 - 5 kg size allows newborns growing space because it's slightly roomier.
What to purchase?
If you're buying for someone as a gift, or your obstetrician or midwife believes your baby will be on the larger side, we suggest the 3-5 kg size. Otherwise, consider the more snug fit for 2 1/2 - 4kg babies. Note the fabric is stretchy (rather than a rigid weave construction) so there is some 'give'.
Hospital pilot program
A hospital pilot program successfully trialed the Merineo swaddling bag, leading to the supply of Merineo's to all newborn babies born at that hospital!
We also have a basic sleeping bag without the swaddle component, called a 'wingless' Merineo, for 3-5 kg newborn babies who are less keen on being swaddled but still like to feel secure.
