The wool wrap is designed for use for infants from birth to approximately five months of age. Some may get a little longer use depending on the size of the baby. Adjustable Velcro side wings allow the wrap to grow with the baby.
We understand that the arrival of a newborn is not only a blessing but can also be a worrying time, and we believe that the comfort and peace of mind for a new mum is paramount. Red Nose Australia provides several recommendations for safe sleeping. The Bundl Wool Wrap has been designed to follow SIDS safe sleep recommendations as it encourages baby to sleep on their back, with their face and head uncovered. The padding under the head is sewn into the side seams to prevent any bunching, and the wool duvet only comes up to the baby's chest height and not over the face. The side wings are adjustable and can be Velcro fastened tightly over the top, which helps restrict bub's movement, prevents sliding, and helps them feel safe and secure. Baby should also be sleeping on a firm, flat surface, and, if used at the ages recommended (newborn to 5 months), they do not move very much. It is not recommended to use if baby is crawling. We do not recommend using with items such as a baby lounger. In addition we strongly recommend new parents to visit rednose.org.au to familiarise themselves with all of the guidance around how best to safe sleep.
Generally, bedding made from polyester or synthetic fibre fillings that can consistently perform to a testing standard or set temperature range tends to be 'tog' rated. Bedding or sleeping bags made with Wool are not tog rated, as they are made from natural fibres that adjust according to temperature; this is one reason natural fibres such as Wool are so popular. Wool is also amazing at wicking moisture away from the skin and has incredible temperature regulating properties. By varying the clothing underneath, this wrap is ideal in temperatures from roughly 14 to 25 degrees..
The wool wrap has been designed with ease and simplicity in mind. Simply lay baby down on the wrap, fold up the wool duvet to baby's chest height, fold over the side wings and fasten with Velcro to the desired tightness.
To wash, please remove the wool inner from the organic Cotton outer and follow the care instructions on each piece. Both items are gentle machine washable, and we advise reshaping whilst damp. Wool and organic Cotton have a natural tendency to reduce in size the first time they are washed, so don't be alarmed if the woollen insert and Cotton wrap shrink ever so slightly the first time you take them out of the machine. The shrinkage rate is calculated in the manufacturing process to ensure that a snug fit is still achieved post washing. Please follow the laundering instructions on both the Cotton outer and woollen inner carefully. In the unlikely event that the woollen insert does become slightly loose in the wrap after washing, simply adjust the Wool insert so the wrap remains snug around your little bundle of joy. Like any garment, the washing process can cause the wrap to become a little wrinkled. Should you wish to return it to its crisp, clean shape, a simple iron on low heat is all that's required.
Please wash as per the care label on the blanket. Care recommendations: hand or gentle machine wash in cold or warm water with environmentally friendly laundry detergent, reshape whilst damp and dry in the shade. Do not use fabric softener or bleach.
Warm, gentle machine wash in a laundry wash bag. Wash separately before use. Reshape whilst damp and dry flat. Do not soak or wring. Do not bleach or tumble dry, and do not dry clean. Like other loosely woven natural fibres, some lint and pilling may be noticeable with new fabric. Remove excess lint with an adhesive lint roller. As gauze is a delicate fabric, it is best to keep your blanket away from Velcro or anything else that can catch and snag the fabric.
