What Is A Moss Bag
Moss bags are a spiritual and heart felt gift, to hold and carry our little ones with love.
Traditionally baby’s "diapers" were filled moss, this is why it is known as a moss bag or waspison.
Functional purpose is to cuddle the baby just like a swaddle blanket,
but its has several other benefits:
- It recreates the womb for the newborns.
- Teaches patience and observation
- It lengthens the sleep time for newborn babies
- Even the strongest babies can't escape and wake themselves up. Which they can from the swaddle blankets
