Meet the 3-IN-1 FX Swaddle. Designed in Australia, it comes built-in with 3-IN-1 arm positions (Arms-In, Arms-Free, and Hands-Out) to accommodate your baby’s changing needs, preferences, and development stage.
The FX (Fetal Flex) Swaddle is the only swaddle that emulates the natural essence of the womb environment by swaddling your baby in the naturally preferred Arms-Free (Fetal Flex) position, while still suppressing the Startle (Moro) reflex.
Similar to the womb environment, the FX Swaddle provides your baby optimum comfort and feeling of security, promotes better development and self-soothing, while minimising spontaneous awakenings – helping your baby sleep better and longer – providing a gentler way to transition your baby from 'womb to world', and from 'swaddle to sleeping bag'.

Babies grow at different rates, and weight and height can vary significantly between babies of same age. Therefore, we recommend choosing the swaddle size according to your baby’s Weight or Height, whichever is greater of the two, instead of baby’s age. Please feel free to contact us if you require any assistance.
STEP 1 – Base Size
Select a base size below according to your baby’s current WEIGHT or HEIGHT, whichever is greater of the two.
33-39w (Gestational Age)
- All measurements are approximate and are for guidance only as all babies are different.
STEP 2 – Final Size
Upsize to next size up if ANY of the below applies to your situation, otherwise keep to the base size from STEP 1.
- If your baby’s current weight/height falls in the middle or higher end of the base size weight/height ranges.
- If you are intending to swaddle your baby ARMS-IN ‘with hands placed over chest’, as more chest room is required for this arm position. However, if you are intending to swaddle your baby ARMS-IN ‘with hands by the side of the body’ (our recommended ARMS-IN position), then keep to the base size unless any of the other conditions applies to your situation.
- If you are intending to dress baby underneath the swaddle in thick/multiple layers, for example during cooler months.
- If your baby prefers to sleep with arms up high or prefers a more relaxed fit.
Side note: Young babies can go through growth spurts at any time. To avoid unexpected delays in receiving your swaddle, we recommend you choose the Express Shipping option during checkout. For shipping info please visit https://sleepycompany.com/shipping-returns-warranty
How many swaddles do I need?
We recommend purchasing at least two FX swaddles per size. Consider getting an extra spare for added convenience, as babies can be messy with leaking nappies and spitting up milk.
One to wash, one to wear, and one to spare!
Tog Rating and Fabric Composition
What is a Tog?
Tog is a measurement of warmth or 'Thermal Resistance' in a fabric; the lower the Tog rating, the cooler the fabric, and the higher the Tog rating, the warmer the fabric.
FX Swaddle Tog Rating and Fabric Composition
The FX Swaddle comes in various warmth ratings to cover all seasons as follows:
Light Weight Bamboo (Super Stretch) 0.2 Tog
The Light Weight Bamboo (Super Stretch) 0.2 Tog FX swaddle is made from a single layer of thin and incredibly stretchy fabric, consisting of 90% bamboo and 10% spandex. This fabric is exceptionally soft and light, with a silky feel. It's perfect for summer use when worn with light clothing or just a nappy underneath, and suitable for autumn and spring when layered with warmer clothing underneath.
This Super Stretch version provides the highest level of freedom of movement among all our swaddles, making it the ideal choice for babies who prefer unrestricted mobility and have a mild startle reflex (not suitable for babies with medium-strong startle reflex).

Warm Weight 2.5 Tog
The Warm Weight 2.5 Tog FX swaddle is made from a stretchy cotton fleece fabric, consisting of 95% cotton and 5% spandex. This fabric features a smooth exterior and a plush, fluffy interior, similar to that of a cosy sweatshirt or jumper. While the upper body and sleeves feature a single layer of this fabric, the area from below the chest to the bottom, both front and back, is double-layered, providing optimal warmth for winter. You can dress your baby underneath the swaddle with suitable layers, adjusting as needed to accommodate varying cold temperatures.
General Dressing Guide
The FX swaddle is designed to be worn over other sleepwear as an additional layer. When dressing your baby for sleep, room temperature is a crucial consideration, but other factors such as humidity levels in your region, the presence of heating or cooling systems in your house, your baby's individual preferences (like being a hot or cold sleeper), and your baby's health condition (such as having a cold, infection, or specific needs) also influence the choice of an appropriate Tog-rated swaddle and how your baby should be dressed underneath.
As a starting point, we recommend dressing your baby in a way similar to how you would dress yourself for the room temperature: comfortably warm, neither too hot nor too cold. Regularly feel your baby's chest, tummy, or back to gauge their temperature; it should be comfortably warm, neither too hot nor too cool to your touch. You can then add or remove layers as needed.
It's normal if your baby’s hands and feet feel cool. This is due to their immature circulatory systems, which can cause a delay in blood movement to the extremities.
If your baby is sweating or has a red face, consider removing some clothing. This is especially important if your baby is unwell, in which case you should seek medical attention
- This dressing guide is for general guidance only as all babies are different.
Ideal Room Temperature
Maintaining a comfortable room temperature is crucial for your baby's well-being. High room temperatures can lead to overheating, while inhaling cold air may heighten the risk of respiratory illnesses. Babies may also wake up if they are too hot or too cold. Regardless of the weather conditions outside, aim to keep the nursery temperature between 18 and 22 degrees Celsius (64 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit) whenever possible.
Warm Weather Tips
During hot summer days, it may be sufficient to dress your baby in just the FX swaddle and a nappy.
Additionally, consider undoing the bottom zipper of the swaddle so that it is partially open from below the chest to the feet, keeping your baby cooler and more comfortable.
Furthermore, using a fan in the baby's room significantly improves air circulation, creating a cooler atmosphere in warm weather and increasing safety.
Safe Swaddling Tips
- Always sleep baby on the back, not on the tummy or side.
- Do not use swaddle if head can pass through the neck-hole or if neck-hole is too tight.
- It is essential to discontinue swaddling (STAGE 1) as soon as the baby starts showing signs that they can begin to roll, typically occurring between 4-6 months but potentially sooner for some babies. At this point, we recommend transitioning to our 2-IN-1 Swaddle Transition Sleep Bag (STAGE 2), which is specifically designed for rolling babies.

- Always follow safe sleep recommendations from children's health care professionals.
