Snuggle Wings is a Straightjacket for Babies!

If someone you knew often babbled in incoherent gibberish, drooled frequently, habitually cried for no discernible reason, and seemed unwilling or unable to control his bowels or bladder, you would think that person was a prime candidate for admission to a loony bin, a funny farm, a madhouse.

The truth is, you encounter people who act like that all time–babies. So why not treat infants like mental patients by strapping them into straightjackets? This is the concept behind the Snuggle Wings product:

All the childproofing you have done to the nursery has practically turned it into a room with rubber walls anyway, so why not take the next logical step by binding your little Napoleon with Snuggle Wings.

If you do decide to order SnuggleWings for your baby boy or girl, be sure to consider the incredible upsell, Baby’s First Electroshock Therapy Set™ —as an added bonus you’ll get a free teething ring that can be used as the bite block.

  • Infomercial products have reached the point that they’ve become parodies of themselves. Snuggle Wings looks like it was designed for a SNL sketch.

  • Yeah…I never did swaddle my baby, even though everyone told me I needed to. I guess this would be good if your baby liked the tightness of the swaddle, but the weather is too hot to use a blanket. Hey, I get it now, it’s a product that was developed in response to global warming! Anyway, of all the baby products everyone said I needed, I probably use only 1/4 of what I received/bought. These wings would be sitting in my pile of unused/unopened stuff. Also, the straight arms position looks really uncomfortable.

  • At 00:13, notice they’ve spelt Moro Reflex as ‘Moro Relex’? It’s the attention to detail that convinces me this product is safe and beneficial to my child.

  • A baby straightjacket! My exact words when I saw this idiotic device last night. They say the baby will sleep soundly with this device preventing the Moro reflex from being activated, which is an utter misrepresentation of the Moro. Furthermore, this reflex is outgrown at 3-4 months, so why are we still putting baby in bondage at the recommended age of 7 months?

    This is ludicrous, and I would strongly suspect potentially harmful to babies. This should be removed from the market immediately!

  • This is the most idiotic thing I have ever seen.
    My very first thought was who in the world is that cruel to put a baby in a straight jacket?
    Because thats about all it is.
    How would you like it if someone put you in one and you had to sleep in one position all night?

  • And my first thought on the teething ring was that it was to keep them from talking, crying, and screaming. A.K.A like a gag. :/ Maybe it’s just me.

  • This is not harmful to babies. Seriously. It’s the exact same thing as regular swaddling, just without covering their feet and body too. It looks creepy, yes, but this position is comforting to babies. They like to have their arms close to their body, like they are in the womb. Most babies prefer being fully swaddled with a swaddling cloth, as they like their legs close to their body too, but this product is ideal for those few babies that don’t, or when it’s too hot to be covered in a blanket. Plus it’s a very easy method of swaddling.

    Also teething rings are fine. They need to chew when their teeth come in because it causes them discomfort when they don’t. It’s the same reason puppies chew on everything in sight. Some argue pacifiers are bad for their teeth, but eh, I used a pacifier as a baby and my teeth were fine. Some just don’t like them because some parents just use them to hush them up.
