I’m a big believer in swaddling. I didn’t do it with baby #1 because I “thought” she didn’t like it. Once I learned how to do it with baby #2 – I was hooked! It made a HUGE difference in my little guy’s happiness and in my #3, as well! Swaddling helps baby feel secure and safe and doesn’t let those little arms go flailing all around when the startle reflex kicks in. I noticed a big difference in my baby’s disposition and how long they slept when they were swaddled vs. when they were not.
I became a swaddle connoisseur. I bought them all! Some of my favorites were easy to put on and would snug baby up nice and tight. The tighter – the better. (don’t worry – it wasn’t TOO tight) I loved the HALO SleepSack Swaddles when my babies were little, too. They were a breeze to put on and then you would just fold the “wings” around baby and you’re done! What was encouraging to me as a mom trying to make the safest and best decisions for my children, was that HALO is used in hospitals around the country! They actually use them in their nurseries and send new mammas home with them.
The design is perfect because there is no extra material to get around baby’s face. There’s not a risk of the material coming lose and covering up baby’s face when they wiggle around while sleeping, either. I used the HALO SleepSack Swaddle until my baby was bigger and ready to have their arms out and then I switched to the SleepSack wearable blankets.
I had one for Sydney that was in a nice, soft organic cotton that I loved! She wore it forever! It kept her nice and warm at night but also made her feel safe and secure. She even learned to stand up in it and yell for me from her crib when she was bigger! haha!
