The benefits of Twin Cocoons

Birth is already a significant change for a baby and even more so for twins and triplets, who have to deal not only with gravity, the limitless world around them, draughts, ambient sounds and light, but also the fact that they are no longer cuddled up together in a cosy bundle.

Ouatine & Cumulus cocoons provide reassurance to promote peaceful sleep while maintaining physical contact in the lower part of the cocoon. The cocoon helps babies to continue growing and developing side by side while helping them to feed together (which is a significant benefit for parents).

Multiple Birth Cocoons share the same benefits as the Size 1 individual cocoons.

After a warm and cosy pregnancy in a reassuring environment, birth is a truly magical experience, but one that brings a huge change to your baby. Once outside the womb, your baby has to deal with gravity, the limitless world around them, draughts, ambient sounds and light.

Ouatine & Cumulus Cocoons have been specially designed to provide a safe space for your baby from birth. Your baby will be held in a comfortable flexed position similar to the foetal position and ideal for growth, in an enclosed space that provides reassurance, much like mum’s tummy.

The cocoon provides points of reference to the newborn, with contact points at the head and feet, as in the womb. This has a truly calming effect on your baby.
The side panels help to keep baby’s hands close to the face for reassurance and positive stimulation. The cocoons have a soft strap to hold your baby securely in place. They also have a little pouch pocket where parents can slip in a roll of fabric infused with their comforting smell to increase your baby’s sense of wellbeing. For maximum effect, we recommend changing the fabric every 48 hours.

Just like all of the Cocoons in the Ouatine & Cumulus range, the Size 1 is made using materials certified as OEKO-TEX® Standard 100.


STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety. Find out here what STANDARD 100 means and why you should check for this label when buying textile products.

The “Size 1” Cocoon is ideal for newborns up to 4.5 kg (10 lbs). As your baby gets bigger and needs more freedom of movement, you need to move up to our “Size 2” Cocoon.

The “Multiple Birth” Cocoon is ideal for newborns up to 4.5 kg (10 lbs). The next step, to give more freedom to your growing babies as they start to develop as individuals, is progressing to two separate “Size 2” Cocoons.
