How to stop swaddle suck stains because eew that’s gross!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve spent A LOT of $’s trying to find the perfect swaddle for my babies.

I’ve tried best-selling (and expensive) swaddles, desperately looking for the perfect one that would allow us all to sleep.

Like most mums, I gravitated towards popular swaddles, like those that allow baby’s to sleep in the arms-up position. Great if that’s how your baby prefers to sleep – mine didn’t.

No matter how hard I tried they just wouldn’t take to them.

Instead of sleeping, my little ones sucked on their hands through the fabric and never went to sleep. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have time to soak and wash swaddles every day.

Not to mention they’d get rashes around their mouths and I’d have to deal with facial eczema flare-ups caused by the damp fabric rubbing against their delicate skin. So how did I stop swaddle suck stains?

I ended up returning to blanket swaddling the old fashioned way.

This worked like a dream for a couple of nights, until little hands learnt to wriggle free and my nights were once again interrupted with waking babies. We were back to square one! 

There had to be a better solution… a swaddle that my babies could sleep in, kept their hands tucked in AND their faces free from scratches and rashes.

So, I invented it.

Looking back now, the Sleepy Bub swaddle invention is so logical!

So that’s how Sleepy Bub began – just me and an idea to solving a problem that I know many parents deal with across Australia and around the world.

I’m very proud that now hundreds of parents are able to sleep well at night because their little ones are swaddled in a Sleepy Bub 100% GOT certified organic swaddle or romper.

Real Mum Reviews…

“I’ve seen Sleepy Bub come up as a suggestion on my Facebook a few times. Showed hubby and he was all for it. I gave Eileen a call with so many questions and she was happy to answer all. I ordered both the romper and swaddle. He’s seemed to learn pretty quickly not to move his arms as it won’t get him no where! We’ve managed to stretch the sleeps to about 4.5-5 hours.”
