Prop Baby Cocoons: Kid Friendly or Are You Kidding?
Prop Baby Cocoons: Kid Friendly or Are You Kidding?

When I first saw these baby cocoons from simplybasicdesigns's Etsy shop ($45) I thought: oh my goodness! That baby is too cute! I later worried about how safe an infant might be wrapped up in such a thick body blankie, but learned the designs are mostly used by photographers as a prop during baby's first few weeks of life.

Would you wrap your baby in a cocoon for the sake of a cuddly pic, or are you squeamish about these soft knitted pouches?

I know a lot of hospatal that request these for there infants wards http://www.reliefshare.org/wordpress/index.php/2011/01/11/72-baby-cocoons-delivered-to-the-hospital-today/ . They say the baby feels more secure and they do not smother like with blankets.

How would it be any hotter than swaddling them in a thick blanket on a cold day? I have no problem with these. I wouldn't buy one but I don't think there's anything wrong with them.

Aww, very cute. I see nothing wrong with using the cocoons for pictures and on very cold days.
