New to Bounty?
There’s a little secret parents know, and it’s all to do with getting a good night’s sleep. To help their babies stay asleep for longer, many parents are opting to swaddle as it can help maintain body temperature and keeps them nice and snug and feeling safe.
Studies have suggested that this age-old tradition of wrapping your baby can help calm a baby so they wake less frequently and sleep longer than non-swaddled babies.
Certainly worth giving it a shot – so we have rounded up what we feel are the best swaddles out there.
The winning baby products of the year have all been exhaustively tried, tested and voted on by real mums, bubs and Bounty’s expert panel.
This year the awards, proudly brought to us by Babies ‘R’ Us, saw more than 40,000 Aussie parents plus a panel of industry experts cast their votes on a range of products from nappies and car seats, to prams and breast pumps, judging each one on quality, value for money, user-friendliness and innovation.
Products were put through their paces over a period of six months in three different settings: real-life situations, a retail environment and online. The products submitted were assessed on quality, value for money, user-friendliness and innovation.
