The new inbetweenie™ by Girl + Boy is a range of fully enclosed, lightweight 100% cotton sleep sacks or sleeping bags for babies who don't like being swaddled or those who have begun to roll.
Based on the simple concept of a safe, soft boundary, the inbetweenie™ helps babies to sleep peacefully without the constraints or risks of a traditional swaddle or danger of loose blankets.
The unique design of the inbetweenie™ helps to control the startle or moro reflex while still allowing your baby to find their fist and self soothe. It offers enough room to naturally stretch out their hips and safely expand their chest, while allowing enough movement to safely roll on to their front and back again.
The full enclosure sleep sack and soft neckline keeps little hands and necks covered as well as protected from mosquitoes or bugs, so your baby will stay cosy through the night.
During our warm summer months the inbetweenie™ provides a light, breathable cocoon for your babies to ensure they maintain an optimal body temperature for a sound, peaceful night's sleep.
The inbetweenie™ is perfect for use around the 4 month sleep regression time. As your babies develop, their need for swaddling changes, you may find they start fighting against being wrapped up. Transitioning to a product such as the inbetweenie™ is ideal around this time as your babies will still feel cocooned yet not contained.
