Sometimes newborns represent something closer to bread-loaf-sized-screeching-hurricanes rather than actual tiny little humans. Plus, you add onto that, the unsettled nights and completely irrational sleep patterns and all of a sudden you are headed straight down the track of sleepless nights and frazzled mama and papa bears.
Swaddling is an easy solution that gives many tiny humans the comfort they need to encourage a more restful and better night’s sleep (which in turn benefits the whole family!)
Here are some fantastic swaddling solutions for all the bread loaves in your life:
1. The Love to Dream Wrap Me Up
The Love to Dream Swaddle Up Original is a fantastic product that assists your little one to find comfort while being swaddled. Available for $39.95, the genius of this product is that, unlike many similar products it allows your baby to place their arms above their head into their natural position. Plus, as your baby grows it will allows them to have access to their hands, which relaxes many little ones.
We used this for our little birdies and it was by FAR the BEST thing we ever purchased. A perfect sleep trigger for them.
2. The Woombie Swaddle
Next are the fantastic Woombie swaddles. Available for $39.95 they offer your most precious cargo safe and comfortable protection during their slumber, they allow your little person to move slightly while offering protection from blankets falling onto their face.
