swaddles 2015 Lake&Riverco

 

Rocking, feeding, singing, and soothing are all well and good, but sometimes a nice, snug swaddle is the trick to a happy newborn. After months in a warm, tight womb, your baby might just want to feel that familiar environment. You can create that with a variety of swaddle wrapping techniques, or take the guesswork out with a preformed blanket with Velcro.

We are very partial to Summer Infant and Halo. They are simple and affordable. (A three pack of Summer Infant swaddles is the first thing I order when my due date is looming near.) however, muslin blankets are also popular for their size and versatility. Some parents even use them as flats for cloth diapers!

Here are our favorites and suggestions from other seasoned parents.
