Frequently Asked Questions

Why is scent so important for sleep?

There is a tremendous amount of published research that proves the unique scent of a mom or dad lowers cortisol levels in a baby, calming them and helping them to fall asleep faster and sleep better.  Research also shows that the sense of smell is processed in the part of the brain that controls memory and there’s evidence these familiar scents strengthen the ties between baby and parent.

How does it work?

Simply unsnap the Soothe-Swatch from the base of the Mookabee Swaddle, fold it into thirds and place close to skin – ideally inside mom’s bra or dad’s shirt. Wear it for 7-9 hours before snapping it back into the swaddle base and wrap baby up as you normally would. Please refer to the Product Use & Safety page of our website for more information.
