When Clifford Hardesty's grandson was a newborn, he made a discovery. His grandson was waking up and kicking out of his swaddle. Clifford Hardesty discovered that when he held his grandson's legs in a fetal position, the baby could rest better. He also discovered that it was important for the baby to be able to stretch his legs while sleeping and then return them to a fetal position. After this discovery he went in search of a swaddle that would allow a baby to stretch his legs and return them to a fetal position. He couldn't find any. At that point, he decided to create a swaddle that would help babies make an easier transition from the womb. After 2 years of research and testing he introduced the TrueWomb Sleeping Swaddle and the TrueWomb Arms Free Weaning Swaddle.
The TrueWomb Sleeping Swaddle helps a baby adjust to life outside the womb by providing a swaddle that resembles the womb. Like the uterine wall, the pouch allows the baby to stretch his legs before returning them to a fetal position. Arms are wrapped securely against the body. This position will help your baby sleep better. The pouch attaches on your baby with a hook and loop closure at the waist. The gentle pressure at the waist also works to help reduce colic. This stretchy cotton and spandex blend comes in several sizes designed to fit a tiny preemie all the way up to a 22 lb infant.
When your baby grows, your can transition to the TrueWomb Arms Free Weaning Swaddle to get your child used to sleeping without a swaddle. It will allow your baby to sleep with her arms free, while still keeping the legs in a fetal position. Use it during the day until your baby is used to sleeping with her arms free. When she is used to that, you can use the weaning swaddle at night too. The TrueWomb Arms Free Weaning Swaddle is available in three sizes to fit a newborn up to a 22 lb. infant.
When using the TrueWomb swaddle the baby should wear a lightweight bodysuit and use no blankets. It is not for use in a car seat. Also, the baby should be placed on her back when sleeping.
