The benefits of “Size 2” Cocoons
Still little but already getting bigger, your baby is now more used to being in the big wide world. Although Ouatine & Cumulus cocoons still provide a cosy, enclosed space to calm your baby, it is recommended that you reduce contact with their head, which is now more mobile.
However, if your baby still needs reassurance, this design features a pouch hood, where you can slip a muslin or rolled-up towel to help define the space around your baby’s head so they feel more enclosed. This can be particularly helpful for babies who are used to being carried.
Just like all of the Cocoons in the Ouatine & Cumulus range, the Size 2 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 2 Cocoon has a soft strap to securely hold your baby in place. There is also a little cloud in the chest area, where a dummy strap can be clipped on so that parents can quickly and easily find the dummy at night-time.
This design is ideally suited to babies between 6 weeks and 6 months old. Once your baby can turn onto their stomach, they will need to move up to the grow bag.
FAQ: Can I put my baby into a Size 2 Cocoon without previously using a Size 1?
Yes, you can! The Size 1 Cocoon is only used for a short period of time, up to a weight of 4.5 kg (10 lbs). It was designed to meet the precise needs of newborn babies, providing them with reassurance in the big wide world.
However, if your baby was close to 4.5 kg (10 lbs) at birth or if you can’t or don't want to use a Size 1 Cocoon, you can go straight to the Size 2 design. In this case, we would advise you to place a rolled-up towel in the bottom of the cocoon to support the lower part of your baby and to assist in encouraging the flexed position. You could also fold up the bottom of the cocoon so that your baby can keep their feet in contact with the fabric, for reassurance.
