For the first 3 to 4 months of life the best way to sleep is to be wrapped up tight. Not only is this comfortable for your little one, but it suppresses their startle reflexes which encourages them to sleep longer and keeps them warm without the use of loose blankets, which can be dangerous. They also make great gifts for those of you with a baby shower coming up. Finding the right swaddle for you and your baby should be simple and fun; we have found some cozy, cute options to get you started.
