Oh the swaddle. It's a wonderful thing. Those first few days, weeks and sometimes months at home the swaddle becomes a magical thing when you have a crying baby. You don't know what to do to calm their crying so you swaddle them tight and before you know it they are sleeping soundly.
Since Annie was born we have used the Halo SleepSack Swaddle in 100% cotton muslin and dare I say this has been a lifesaver in our house.
I love using it for so many reasons. The first reason is because it is so soft, in fact it seriously gets softer the more you wash it. The fabric is breatheable so I never have to worry about if it was to get over Annie's face. Secondly I like to use it because it's so easy to use. The velcro on the swaddle makes it easy to get Annie nice and snug and the bottom to top zipper is great for those middle of the night diaper changes.
With this SleepSack Swaddle you can choose whether to keep their tiny arms inside or outside the swaddle. As Annie has gotten older and wants her arms out this has been a great feature. I can still keep her covered and warm without worrying about using loose blankets and she can keep her arms out, which she seems to prefer some nights. It's really a win-win for us.
The Halo website offers a variety of SleepSack Swaddles. I can tell you this is all we will be using. Even without using the swaddle feature the SleepSack is perfect.
And in an added bonus Halo SleepSack Swaddles are safe for your baby and have become a standard in hospital nurseries. Swaddling offers many benefits for your baby including helping them sleep longer and helping to soothe them.
If you are pregnant or even just need the perfect baby gift, let me recommend the Halo SleepSack Swaddle. You can visit their website HERE.
