Sleepy Wings is a type of clothing meant to reduce the startle reflex of babies without swaddling.
By reducing the startle reflex you can prevent the baby from waking itself during sleep, keep it from scratching and pinching mommy while feeding, and keep it from scratching itself.
Sleepy Wings allow the baby to sleep in a natural position, with bent elbows and arms positioned alongside the head, without restricting the baby’s ability to reach it’s mouth with it’s hands. This allows the baby to self settle and sooth without scratching itself.
What I love the most about Sleepy Wings are the ingenious “dummy pockets”, which are placed in each hand. These allow you to place two pacifiers in the immediate reach of the babies mouth, hence the baby can loose it’s pacifier twice without the parents having to intervene!
