Thank you so much for this amazing information you provide. I have a beautiful fabric that I would like to use for my new granddaughter, it is 93% Organic Cotton and 7% organic elastane, and I'm wondering if this would this be suitable swaddling/wrapping?? It has 4-way stretch to enable the bubba to move but is firm enough to hold the arms in place. Does elastane cause irritation on baby's skin? Could it be tooooooo much stretch?? The fabric is so soft and beautiful but just want to check before I go ahead - I did try and she loved it, but it was just a short test run Before I attempt a full nap I wanted to check with you first. Thank you very much for your amazing information and support. We would be lost without your services. Kind regards Belinda xx
Red Nose Education
Red Nose recommends using lightweight material like muslin or cotton when using a wrap.
Use only lightweight wraps such as cotton or muslin (bunny rugs and blankets are not safe alternatives as they may cause overheating).
Red Nose has no information in relation to irritation of specific materials & their impact on baby’s skin, apart from recommending lightweight material.
As with all babies, once they are rolling, wrapping/swaddling should be ceased.
