Keeping mum and bub warm this winter

We’ve turned the air con off and the heater on, swapped salads for soups and replaced swimmers with jumpers.
It’s important that we keep ourselves and our children warm and safe in the winter and that means ensuring we are wearing the proper clothing both day and night.
An Australian company has a range of safe and effective products to keep babies and their mum’s snug as a bug in those chilly evenings.
The ergoPouch is renowned for its range of fashion forward, high quality baby swaddles, sleeping bags and sleep suits and, adding to its list of impressive products, the company recently developed a new cosy sleep suit for feeding mums.
The ‘twosie’ sleep suit is perfect for evening baby feeds, chilly nights camping or simply lounging around. It features a cosy tog (warmth) rating of 2.5 and has been designed with special zippers to allow for easy breast feeding access while still maintaining complete coverage and warmth through the back and waist.
Alina Sack, ergoPouch Founder and designer of the ‘ twosie’ drew on her own personal experiences as a mother of two boys to come up with the innovative new product.
“I remember the chilly, middle of the night feeds well. The cold air on my bare skin certainly took the edge off the enjoyment of the beautiful bonding time with my babies. We’ ve designed the ‘ twosie’ to encourage a much more snuggly, middle of the night experience for mums and bubs,” Alina said.
The company is going from strength to strength, having just been given the thumbs up from the The International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI) who praised ergoPouch’s commitment to developing products that consider the importance of healthy hip development during infancy.
“We know that hip health is especially important during the early stages of hip development in the first few months after birth so we’ve gone to great lengths to design baby sleep products that promote healthy hip development right from the outset,” Alina said.
Swaddling has been widely advocated by leading physicians including Leo Donnan, Orthopaedic Surgeon and Chief of Surgery at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, as an effective way of settling a restless infant, but it’s important to ensure the baby’s hips are in the correct position when doing so. If not performed in a safe fashion, tight swaddling can negatively affect the development of a baby’s hips, even to the point of dislocation.
If a child does have to wear a brace because of hip dysplasia, they can still fit comfortably inside the ergoCocoon while keeping their little arms securely swaddled.
