More Than One Way to Swaddle
Swaddling is one of the best ways to quickly soothe and calm down your baby, but sometimes pulling out your swaddle blanket and trying to roll up your little one without him/her escaping is just not going to happen!So what are some options for swaddling that are still safe for your babes, but won't leave you struggling with a blanket? Here are a few of the swaddles that are great for wrapping up our little ones without the hassle.
This swaddle uses velcro patches to let you wrap up your babe tightly, and to keep their hips in the correct position while they're swaddled. The Ollie is great for even your smallest babes and works great for transitioning for your older kids. You're able to adjust the swaddle for arms out, and you can also adjust the length of the swaddle when your kids get bigger. This is a great option for parents who want to purchase one swaddle that will technically last the life of your swaddling babe.
This is such a simple swaddle--you just stick baby in, and zip up! This is a pretty unique swaddle because it lets your baby have his/her arms up by his/her face (which all babes love!) while still being wrapped up! You can start by using the Original and then transition your babe to arms out swaddling with the 50/50 where you can just unzip the "wings" and help babe get used to it! The Love to Dream has a 2-way zipper so you can easily zip up the bottom half when you're changing babe's diaper.
This swaddle has a pretty unique design, where you slip baby into a pocket to make sure his/her hips are in place. Then you'll wrap baby up so they can't get their arms loose throughout the night. Because you have the special pocket to keep his/her hips in the correct position, the Ergobaby has a looser bottom to allow babe to kick and move his/her legs for a little more movement and freedom.
