Did you listen to the OB nurse when she explained the perfect swaddling technique? I don’t know about you, but I was way too busy worrying about attaching the baby to my boob to think about tightly wrapping my child in a crappy hospital blanket. But when I got home, I realized that I probably should have listened; it’s a well-known fact that the swaddle is one of the most amazing techniques to get a restless, unhappy baby to relax, eat, and sleep. So, knowing that moms have a thousand other things to worry about in those first few months with a newborn, Alison and Patty created the SweetRoll Swaddler, a wonderfully soft and cozy onesie that features an upper body wrap for swaddling ease.
These amazing little life-savers come in two sizes (small for 0-2 months, and large for 6 weeks or 10lbs and up), and a variety of colors. You can use them in carseats and babycarriers, and they are great for those nursing sessions where flailing arms seem to distract your baby from a much needed feeding. And seriously, what’s sweeter than a happy, quiet, sleeping baby? –Kristen
