Inspired by her four daughters, all under four years old, Courtney Peters, a Plymouth Meeting resident, created an improved swaddle that helps babies sleep better, writes Holly Harrar for WFMZ 69 News.

When she had twins, Peters realized she needed something better for her girls than the available swaddles.

Courtney started her own business with Swaddlou.

“My house was a well-oiled machine but at four weeks, my twins were breaking out of their swaddle and that was interrupting their sleep so I needed something that worked better,” she said.

With nothing around, she decided to make her own.

“I would put one twin in a swaddle that I purchased and then I put another twin in the Swaddlou prototype design and without fail, every night, the twin that was in the Swaddlou would sleep significantly longer than the twin that was in every other swaddle that I tested,” said Peters.

After determining her invention worked, she started her own business, Swaddlou, to sell them.

She wanted her products to be American-made using locally sourced organic materials by women. Thanks to Mona Lisa Fashions in Allentown, she achieved this.

“I can’t imagine trying to do this anywhere else than in our backyard,” said Peters.
