WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR NEWBORN ONLY THE BEST WILL DO, SWITCH TO MERINO FOR SUMMER - YOUR SLEEP WILL THANK YOU!


Our stunning Summer lite-weight merino collection has all the warmth benefits that newborn babies need to regulate temperature, it's soft and ultra light-weight (in fact it only weighs 84 grams, compared with an average cotton wrap which weighs about 95 grams - it feels a little like muslin cloth), so you get natural merino that is lite enough to layer with whatever you want; for example: during very warm Summer nights, you might like to wear just a nappy underneath your night-gown. 


Our beautifully designed gowns are made from soft, warm merino and ideal for your brand new baby. They really are the perfect start before you begin to think about sleeping bags or blankets and are a great item to pack in your hospital overnight bag. Plus they are designed to fit from newborn to approx 6mths, so you get great value for money. 

NIGHT-GOWN DESIGN:

Our envelope neck is designed for easy fit and our generous length will allow for plenty of kick room or for those extra tall babies. With a drawstring at the bottom to allow for easy access at nappy changes, night times will be so much easier for mum and dad. And as with all our Baby Caterpillar garments our night-gowns are machine washable and able to be tumble dried (on a cool setting).


MERINO NIGHT-GOWN SET:

  • 1 x merino Forest Print night-gown:
    • Sized to fit your newborn to approx 6mths
    • Simple to get on and off with the envelope neckline
    • Front pleats for a better fit through the chest area

    • double stitched drawstring so you won't break the stitching when pulling closed

BEANIE DESIGN:

Our knotted beanies will generally fit from newborn to approx 3/4 months old, and are designed to fit, so they don't fall down over babies eyes.  Simply tie the knot to fit your baby's head and adjust the knot as they grow.   The knotted hat are perfect for day time strolling and all out and about activities - just make sure you don't sleep your baby overnight in a hat (as they may overheat).

Merino Wool and Babies

Try to forget everything you know about wool - when it comes to newborn babies MERINO WOOL is the only choice.  It doesn't matter if it's the middle of Summer or the heart of winter, merino will work, like magic, to regulate your newborn's temperature.

Safety first:

  • It is important to never sleep your baby overnight with a beanie or hat on as this may cause over-heating.  Hats purchased with our night-gowns are for 'out and about'.  Best practice is to keep the room temperature at a comfortable condition for a lightly clothed adult.
  • If you are wrapping or swaddling your baby, then it is important to limit the use of blankets or duvets as well, not only can this lead to overheating, but there is a chance of your baby slipping under the covers while asleep.  Best practice is to add layers UNDER the wrap or swaddle to achieve the desired warmth. 
  • Side or stomach sleeping is not advisable:  Studies have found that the side sleep position is unstable and can increase the change of a baby rolling onto his/her stomach.  Sleep your baby on his/her back for EVERY sleep.
  • Use a firm sleep surface: Best practice is to use a firm mattress, covered by a sheet.
  • Once your baby starts to turn over, you must stop wrapping/swaddling and move to a sleeping bag option. 
  • Ensure that everyone who wraps/swaddles baby are aware of these best practice recommendations.

"I wasn't sure about using merino wool for my baby, who was born in early December.   However a friend told me that she used merino wraps for all her babies and gave me one to try.  I didn't take it to the hospital, and they gave me a non-stretchy, rough cotton cloth to use, as soon as I got home I switched to your wrap, and never looked back.  While I didn't buy my first one, I have certainly purchased many, many more since 2014  "  Julie G Paterson - Sydney Australia
