Your baby can sleep with their hands wherever they like- hands by the shoulders, hands near the chin, hands on the tummy, by their side, or one hand up and one hand down! It's about giving baby freedom and autonomy. The only thing your baby can't do with their hands is startle themselves awake, as the shape of the swaddle prevents baby from making sudden movements with their hands.
The International Hip Dysplasia Institute acknowledges the Legs Out Swaddle is a "hip-healthy" product when used as directed.
We've designed The Legs Out Swaddle to be cool in summer, it's made from fine natural fabric, so that it breathes. In summer baby can wear it with just a diaper, and in cooler months it can be layered over clothing.
- Baby's legs are free, and hips are in a natural position
- There is no startle reflex in the legs, so no need to swaddle them!
- Fine bamboo cotton blend fabric allows baby to stay cool in summer
- Baby's feet aren't covered, so better for hot days and nights
- Designed in New Zealand
- Baby will stay swaddled all night long
- Swaddling can help babies to have longer, uninterrupted sleeps, because swaddling makes it difficult for babies to move their arms, this is called the startle, or Moro reflex and is the reason that lots of young babies wake themselves up
- Snaps at the shoulders to make it easy to put on and take off
- Snaps at the crotch for easy nappy changes
- Unsnap at the shoulders and roll down to the underarms for safe travel in car seats and capsules
- Easily wean your baby off the swaddle by unsnapping at the shoulder and releasing one arm from the swaddle

'I think it's a great idea!' -Sophie

The Oohbubs Legs Out Baby Swaddle was designed by Anita at Global Baby, as her baby was born in October so she knew how hard it was to swaddle a baby over summer- especially for day sleeps.
