Arm Restraints: Honey Cuffs

Our very own MeriAnn has devised a new arm restraint that will be debuting this summer! They look nice and soft and oh-so-much more comfy than the hospital-issue Snuggle Wraps. Here is a link to her web site:

These may be helpful for your upcoming surgeries!


  1. Cool! Well done, MeriAnn! Although we hope to not need restraints again, we know where to go if we do need them :)

  2. Wow! Those look like a great alternative to those stiff arm restraints. I wasn't looking forward to using those on Jake - he is a mover! Having hist arms held stiff would make him so mad! Do the cuffs stay on the wrists well? It looks like it's staying on that baby really well, but Jake wiggles and flails a lot. I'd love to use them but I worry about the cuffs coming off. Has this been a problem for anyone?
