Today’s episode of the show is brought to you by ErgoPouch. Have you got a swaddled baby who’s about to start rolling, or has just begun? Your little one will begin to roll their body over, from back-to-front or tummy-to-back around 2-6 months of age (each child is beautifully different so this stage can happen early or later, there is no exact time). When this first sign of rolling does eventually happen, it is time to transition your swaddled baby to an arms-out sleeper for their safety.  

Our friends at ergoPouch have designed a product to help those fussy babies smoothly transition from arms-in swaddling to arms-out dreaming in three simple steps.  The new Butterfly Cardi is a cardigan-like product, to be worn over an arms-out sleeping bag.  It features envelope arm pockets that take baby from arms-in swaddling, to arms-up sleeping, eventually to arms-out sleeping over a guideline period of 10 days. Made from organic cotton, the cardi has press studs to adjust the width and firmness, depending on your babies size and strength of their startle reflex.  The Butterfly Cardi, and all ergoPouch sleep products, can be purchased online at www.ergopouch.com.au
