Baby Ota Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I swaddle my baby?

Swaddling is time-tested technique for calming fussy babies. Swaddling replicates the mother’s womb and provides babies with a sense of comfort and calm. In addition to soothing colicy babies, swaddling represses their startle reflex, which means once they go to sleep, they stay asleep.

What makes Baby Ota different from other swaddle blankets?

Unlike most other swaddle blankets, the Baby Ota is designed for both maximum comfort and maximum support. Baby Ota’s removable pillows allow you to customize the amount of padding to fit your baby perfectly, while the three secure straps allow you to gently adjust how loose or tight the Baby Ota fits around different parts of your baby. Baby Ota also provides neck support that keeps your baby on its back (the safest position for babies to sleep) and keeps the face and cheeks warm. Baby Ota’s unique bamboo fiber and cotton blend is softer than cotton, anti-bacterial, and easy to clean.

What is Baby Ota made of?

Baby Otas are made of a blend of bamboo fiber and hand-selected cotton. Bamboo fiber is softer than cotton and has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial properties – which keeps creepy crawlies away from your little crawler. The unique fabric blend keeps babies warm in cold weather, but breathes in warm weather, making it appropriate for year-round use.

How do I clean my Baby Ota?

The Baby Ota is machine washable. If it ever gets a little messy, just pop the pillows out and put it in the laundry. We recommend that the the Baby Ota is never placed inside of a machine drier and should be line dried only.

How is the Baby Ota different from a swaddling blanket or receiving blanket?

Unlike swaddling blankets or receiving blankets, the Baby Ota is designed specifically to keep babies both comfortably swaddled and safe on their backs. The Baby Ota is secured by our Three Bow comfort tie system in the front of the body – this prevents the baby from rolling over onto its tummy or wiggling out of the swaddle, while also allowing parents to adjust how tightly wrapped the baby is at the torso, waist and legs. The Baby Ota encourages the safest sleeping posture for babies by keeping them on their backs.
