Introduction to Velcro Swaddles
A velcro swaddle is a wrapping that the mama wears on her arms and torso to keep the baby swaddled. Velcro allows for easy application, checking, and release of the swaddle without having to fuss with unwrapping and rewrapping each time. Velcro swaddles also do not require an exact wrapping technique as a cloth or woven swaddle would.
What is a Velcro Swaddle?
A velcro swaddle is a piece of material that wraps across the back and torso of the mother. The material is then wrapped around the baby and velcroed at the bottom to keep it in place. In order to use the velcro swaddle, the mama places it on her arm and wraps it around her baby. There are generally two types of velcro swaddles (though there are multiple variants) but they are easily distinguishable by the material used. The most common type is what is known as “acrylic velcro” and this consists of a velour or soft terry-cloth material that is smooth and not bulky. This material does not have any rough threads that could chafe the baby’s skin. The second type is what is known as “hook and loop velcro.” This type is a bit more durable than the “velour” swaddles. The hook and loop velcro does not have any fibers that could be itchy for babies with sensitive skin. Hook and loop velcro is also great for parents because once it has been used, it can be reused without any special cleaning methods.
