So what are you really looking for in a swaddle?
Chances are you’ve researched swaddling or perhaps even experienced firsthand just how awesome swaddling can be in helping you and your baby get the sleep you need. But you may have discovered that the benefits of swaddling can be short-lived once your baby begins breaking free on a consistent basis.

Well, the truth is, nothing works perfectly all the time, but we think you’ll find that we’ve come very close with the Cross My Heart Swaddle™.

How safe is Cross My Heart Swaddle™?

Keeping your baby from breaking out of the swaddle is a very important safety consideration, especially if it results in an unsecured, loose swaddle. Not only is the Cross My Heart Swaddle™ extremely safe through its design and unique fastening system, Cross My Heart Swaddle™ is the most effective and versatile swaddle on the market, hands down – or hands-up.

Learn about the features and benefits.

How well does the Cross My Heart Swaddle™ work, really?
Cross My Heart Swaddle™ is both strong and breathable, made of 100% interlock cotton. We use no-scratch velcro-type fasteners with a very high sheer strength, so babies simply cannot break free, if attached properly. Oh, and you’ll also find our velcro-type fasteners to be quieter than most others, for those parents who are concerned with the annoying loudness that most Velcro fasteners make.
What is so unique about the Cross My Heart Swaddle™?

Well, let me ask you; how do you prefer to swaddle?  Arms up? Arms down? In a sack? Perhaps Arms-only (no sack, pod, cocoon, or pouch) when overheating is a concern?

Our answer to all these questions is what makes us so unique.  With Cross My Heart Swaddle™, you no longer have to choose.  Cross My Heart Swaddle™ is a premium, modular swaddle and instead of locking-in to one single approach every time, you can now have it all, in one safe and reliable swaddle system.  We have created a great product and a unique approach to swaddling, unlike any other product on the market, and with more options and more paths to a successful swaddling experience.  So, if you prefer swaddling hands up, or maybe your baby reacts more favorably to swaddling with arm-down.  Or maybe you have concerns with overheating but still want the benefits of swaddling.  Or perhaps you occasionally just want to use a sleep sack instead of blankets and without a full swaddle.  Our answer to all of these is simply, “yes.”

Up to what age can I use the Cross My Heart Swaddle™?
The moro-reflex can last up to 4 months of age and so will Cross My Heart Swaddle™, of course plus or minus depending on the baby’s actual size. But as with any swaddle solution, be sure to discontinue use once your baby is able to roll onto his/her stomach.
How does one-size-fits-all work on the Cross My Heart Swaddle™?
The Cross My Heart Swaddle™ system was designed to accommodate both arms-up and arms-down swaddling with adjustable arm pockets and snugness levels. Our double-patented swaddle design contains two unique sets of arm pockets and a generous size sleep sack to allow full freedom of leg and hip movement. This is how our patented one-size design allows for proper fitting of most newborns to 4 months of age.

What about those reports that say swaddling increases the risks of SIDS?

You may find value in reviewing this interesting NPR Science Desk article, just recently published, regarding the highly talked about study that has so many up in arms about the safety of swaddling. The articles reveal’s that the aforementioned study is really a meta-analysis, which essentially means that it is an analysis on previously conducted research, not new research.  Not to bely the potential value that studying old data can offer but it is important to understand the context of that study and it appears that many people may not.  This articles brings to the forefront just what that study set out to accomplish and what its conclusions were.  In short, it did no conclude much at all, in terms of new definitive information.  Instead, it uncovered much of what we already knew, including not to wrap too tight, the importance of placing babies on their backs when they sleep, swaddled or not, and to discontinue swaddling as soon as babies can roll over onto their stomach.
