Maidenhead, UK – October 3, 2008 – Babysleepbags.co.uk today announced that the world’s first merino baby swaddle, the Cocooi™ Babywrap from Merino Kids of New Zealand, is now available in the United Kingdom through Babysleepbags.co.uk and the Babysleepbags store on Amazon UK. Delivery is offered locally in the United Kingdom, throughout Europe, and world-wide.
Earlier this year the Merino Kids Cocooi Babywrap was awarded the Seal of Outstanding Design Quality in the prestigious 2008 International Forum Product Design Awards. It also featured in the 2008 red dot design awards, which ranks among the largest and most renowned design competitions in the world.
The award-winning Merino Kids Cocooi Babywrap infant swaddle is made entirely from 100% natural superfine merino wool, which is cuddly-soft, allergy-safe and machine-washable. Its patented diagonal cross-over design enables parents to swaddle their baby quickly, gently and securely without harsh velcro or constricting arm restraints, and the fabric stays clear of the baby’s face while they sleep.
The Merino Kids Cocooi Babywrap fits infants from newborn to three months old, and allows them to move their legs and arms naturally for comfort and early brain development while safely swaddled.
Merino fabric will readily absorb and release moisture to help prevent a baby from overheating. It captures and circulates air to insulate a baby when the room temperature falls, and releases excess body heat as the room temperature rises, to create the perfect micro-climate around their body.
Amie Nilsson, founder of Merino Kids said: “Babies can take as long as a year to develop the full capability to regulate their own body temperature and a few degrees of variation in room temperature can cause them to wake up cold or overheated. Our Cocooi Babywrap swaddling blanket helps to regulate a newborn baby’s body temperature to compensate.” The Merino Kids Cocooi Babywrap can now be purchased on-line at www.amazon.co.uk.
Babysleepbags.co.uk is an official supplier of award-winning baby swaddles and baby sleeping bags from Merino Kids of New Zealand. Babysleepbags has teamed with Amazon to offer these world-best baby products on-line to families in the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States, and world-wide.
