What should my baby wear under a Gro Swaddle
It is very important that you check on your newborn baby regularly to ensure that s/he is not too hot or too cold. To do this, simply place your fingers gently onto her back or chest. It is normal for a young baby’s fingers and toes to feel cold, so this is why its important to check the back or chest.
What your baby wears will depend, not only on the temperature of the bedroom, but also on your individual baby, and, with regular checking, you will soon get used to knowing what level of clothing works best. As a general rule, in the recommended nursery temperature of 16-20c, we recommend either a cotton bodysuit (short sleeves and no legs), or a cotton sleepsuit (with legs and arms). If the bedroom is on the cool side, or your baby feels cool to the touch on her back/chest, then it is fine to layer the clothing, using both a bodysuit and sleepsuit.
In a very warm bedroom, you could simply use the Gro-swaddle with no clothing underneath. If the bedroom is hot (over 24c), try to cool it down, and if this is not possible, consider not using the Swaddle until it is cooler.
As your baby gets older and you want to move to underarm swaddling, so that your baby’s arms are not covered by the Swaddle, you may want to adjust the level of clothing to account for this. For under-arm swaddling, in the recommended nursery temperatures of 16-20c, a cotton long-sleeved sleepsuit or both a bodysuit and long-sleeved sleepsuit are recommended.

1. Place your baby on a comfortable flat surface, on top of the opened out swaddle wrap.
2. Fold the bottom flap over the baby’s legs.
3. Take the shorter wing of the wrap and fold the end of it underneath the baby.
4. Then take the longer wing of the wrap and fold the end of it underneath the baby. Check to see if any adjustment is needed to ensure the wrap isn’t covering the face.
The baby’s weight combined with the stretchy fabric help to keep the swaddle wrap securely in place.
How to wash
All Gro-swaddles can be machine washed at 40°C. They can be hung out to dry or tumble dried on a low setting. As with all cotton goods, we have designed our Gro-swaddle to allow for up to 5% shrinkage. If your child has any allergies and you wish to wash your Gro-swaddle at 60°C, you should allow for a little more shrinkage. We recommend that you wash your Gro-swaddle with a detergent that is free from bleaching agents in order to retain the original colours.
