why swaddle bathe


First baths can be a stressful activity for infants and their parents.  Swaddle bathing is research proven to decrease crying, decrease behavioral stress, and keep temperatures more stable than traditional bathing.  Newborn infants, particularly preterm infants, are at risk for hypothermia, or low body temperatures.  When an infant is swaddled in our warm fleece and placed in the TurtleTub, the infant is comforted by the warm weight of the fleece.  He stays contained, happy and warm as you take out one limb at a time for washing.   Bath time is now spa time!
