Southern Swaddle

Our mission is to create the best infant sleeping experience through research and innovation.

Our goal is to help lower the infant mortality rate in Alabama.

Current Status

   We are currently selling our first product through our website, In February, we won $26,000 from the Shoals Alabama Launchpad pitch competition to help us launch our business.

Quick Pitch

   Imagine a baby swaddle designed by parents for their own baby. It is completely safe to use, it actually helps sleep, and it is made with fabric made in the USA.

Quick Summary

   Southern Swaddle was born in 2016 as the result of a simple idea: soft baby swaddles, made with fabric from the USA. Husband and wife team Adam and Miriah started sewing products by hand and refining them until they were ready for the market. Southern Swaddle is the curation of their effort to create the best baby products for their little one.

Full Story

   It all started when we started looking for the first swaddle for our baby. We did the research most new parents do, not having a clue about what we needed or what was important. Our journey on finding a safe swaddle quickly became filled with bad reviews, cheap fabric squares, and safety horrors. We had no idea that looking for a swaddle would end with us feeling overwhelmed and confused.
   We set out to design and build a swaddle we would use on our own baby. After much drawing, designing, frustration, and sewing, we have crafted the swaddle we are proud to call our own. We also decided to use fabric and materials only from the United States.
