Our Cocoon Swaddle Bags are designed to be both easy to use and difficult to escape from. This zip-up swaddle is TOG rated for warmth to keep a baby snug and securely swaddled without the need for complicated wrapping from day one. Being TOG-rated means that the 0.2 TOG can be used on its own from room temperatures 24°C / 75°F + with no blankets in the bassinet or cot to make this a safe sleep option for a newborn or baby. Parents can layer up underneath as needed for warmth, and follow our handy FREE room thermometer and what to wear guide included with the product to help them dress their child appropriately. We recommend pairing this with one of our TOG-rated Layers or Bodywear underneath (sold separately).
The Cocoon Swaddle bag is made with GOTS certified organic cotton, with a of touch elastane. This means it's firm enough to restrict startle reflex whilst still allowing stretch and movement for healthy growth. The stretch also allows for full chest expansion when breathing, added comfort, and for a baby to move its hands into a self-settling position inside the swaddle. The soft, breathable organic cotton is certified non-toxic, dyed with water based dyes, and gentle on newborn skin, and skin prone to eczema breakouts. A zip enclosure also protects your child's delicate skin, and the handy arm poppers transition the Cocoon from an arms-in swaddle to arms-out sleeping bag when baby is showing signs of rolling. The bell shaped design is approved by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute as being hip-healthy, and promotes proper joint development in the hips and shoulders joints. Finally, the two-way zipper makes for quick and easy nappy changes during sleep with minimal disruptions.
The Cocoon Swaddle Bag meets all safety standards in Australia and New Zealand and is reviewed by the Eczema Association of Australasia as a skin-friendly product.

HOW TO USE
- Lay Cocoon on flat, low surface with zip open and arm studs closed
- Lay baby on top of Cocoon. Tuck legs into swaddle, and zip up with baby's hands in desired position (by sides, or across chest).
- To change a nappy or cool down baby, zip open from the bottom of the swaddle to release legs and lower torso. Zip closed again when finished.
- Layer underneath for warmth as needed
- To transition to arms-out sleeping once showing signs of rolling, release arms by opening the studs on the shoulders. We suggest doing this one arm at a time over several days.
If your newborn baby does not like being swaddled, it is safe to sleep the in the Cocoon Swaddle Bag with their arms out from the beginning.
Always sleep your baby in a safe-sleep environment.

Which ergoPouch product should I choose?
It will depend on the age and development of your child. We have an ergoPouch product suitable for different stages, newborns right through to 6 years old. As a guide, we suggest choosing the following products:
Cocoon Swaddle: for swaddled newborns and arms out (rollers) to age 12 months.
Jersey Bag: Transition item from the Cocoon Swaddle, suitable for 8 months – 24 months
Sleeping Bag or Sleep Suit Bag: for arms out sleepers, kids on the move, little kickers and walkers up to 6 years old.
Winter Sleep Suit: for kids who don’t like a sleeping bag or those ready to transition into a big bed, suitable for 1 year – 5 years.
Layers: TOG rated sleepwear to be worn underneath an ergoPouch bag, sizes available for newborns – 3 years.
What is a Tog? Which one should I choose?
A TOG is a unit of measurement for insulation and warmth of sleepwear and bedding. Put simply, the lower the TOG rating, the lighter the fabric. The higher the rating, the more padded and insulated it is.
You would choose a suitable TOG based on the temperature of the room your baby is sleeping in. Our TOGs are suitable for the below room temperatures:
0.2 and 0.3 TOG = 75ºF+
1.0 TOG = 70ºF to 75ºF
2.5 TOG = 63ºF to 73ºF
3.5 TOG = 57ºF to 70ºF
To take the guesswork out of dressing your little one for sleep, please check our What to Wear Guide.
Can I use blankets over the top of an ergoPouch?
It is recommended by safe sleep guidelines to sleep your baby with their face and head uncovered, free from bedding, pillows and toys. It is for this reason our swaddles, sleeping bags and sleep suits bags are designed to replace bedding altogether.
To ensure the face is always clear, ergoPouch bags are designed to avoid unravelling, have suitable armholes and a fitted neck. It’s for the same reason there are no hoods on our bags.
Are ergoPouch products safe?
Safety is at the forefront of mind when designing an ergoPouch product. All ergoPouch sleepwear go through product safety standard testing as required by Australian law and products are designed for safe sleeping according to Australian SIDs guidelines.
We ask for your support to double check your ergoPouch purchase is suitable for your child before use.
What do the different fire labels mean?
Fire labels can seem worrying so let us explain what they are for.
Product Safety guidelines are mostly based on what will happen if a garment is exposed to an open flame. All children’s sleepwear will fall into a category and must have a fire danger label if they are correctly labelled to Australian standards (unless purchased overseas). Categories 1–3 require a low fire hazard label and category 4 requires a high fire hazard warning label.
Category 1 - Garments made from fabric and trims that pass low flammability tests. Examples include wool, some synthetics and some heavy cottons.
Category 2 - Garments that are close fitting, such as pyjamas, do not ignite or burn as readily. As a result, they may be made from more flammable fabrics. Garment measurements apply according to size.
Category 3 - Babies' all-in-ones have their own category because there is little difference between daywear and nightwear. This category covers all-in-one garments in sizes 00–2, such as jumpsuits and rompers.
Category 4 - Applies to garments that do not fit categories 1, 2 or 3 but still meet some fabric, size and burning test requirements.
Why use a swaddle?
In the early days after birth, a newborn will experience startle reflex that can often wake or unsettle them so using a swaddle can contain this sudden movement. Swaddling soothes and settles them to sleep by providing a feeling of containment, similar to their experience in the confined space of a womb. It also has the following benefits:
- Keeping baby’s body warm in the early stages when their ability to regulate body temperature is still developing.
- A hug! A baby would love to spend the whole night bundled up in their parent’s warm arms so swaddles help create that sensation of being hugged.
- Can help a baby focus on breastfeeding by keeping their arms and legs out of the way.
- Prevents baby from scratching themselves with their nails.
- Swaddling = a longer sleep for everyone!
How many swaddles do I need?
We recommend that you start with two, one on and one in the wash. A baby can be a messy creature with leaking nappies and spitting up milk!
How do I swaddle safely?
- The neck must be fitted to avoid a baby’s head slipping down into the swaddle.
- Swaddles should allow for full chest expansion as those little ribs are still very soft and bendy so an overly enthusiastic wrap has the potential to be too firm across the chest.
- The hips + legs need to be able to flop outwards while the baby sleeps. Tight swaddling across the hips that hold the legs together is thought to contribute and increase developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH).
- Babies don’t regulate their body heat very well and rely on their coverings to keep them warm but not hot. Do not overdress a baby underneath their swaddle and never cover their head at sleep time (e.g. with a hat or beanie). Avoid using blankets as they are bulky and have the potential to overheat a baby.
- Swaddling needs to be secure, without any chance of fabric draping over the baby’s face.
When do I transition my baby from Swaddle (closed poppers) to Sleeping Bag (open poppers)?
It’s time to start training your baby on how to sleep with their arms out of the Cocoon Swaddle Bag when your baby begins to show signs of rolling from their back onto their front. We recommend releasing only one arm out first, this will give a baby time to become used to this new way of sleeping. Naturally, they will have a few disturbed sleeps however this is normal when transitioning a baby through anything new so try one arm out for a week or two, followed by the other arm.
Can my baby sleep with their arms up in a Cocoon Swaddle?
A baby won't be able to get their arms all the way up to the sides of their head in an ergoPouch Cocoon Swaddle. Instead, our swaddles are made from a stretchy fabric to allow for natural movement. We find that babies will wriggle their arms and hands into a position that is most comfortable for them, the bag is stretchy enough for your baby to reach their mouth if sucking is what they prefer.
The neck opening seems a little tight on my Cocoon Swaddle?
To comply with safety requirements, our Cocoon Swaddle Bags have a firm fit around the neck, shoulder and chest area to prevent your little one from slipping inside.
A quick way to check if the neck is too tight is to see if you can put 2 fingers inside the neck opening. If you can, the fit is correct. If you are still uncomfortable with the opening being small, we suggest to undo the zipper about 1cm down with the zip cover still over the top.
