Even before we had the baby, we knew we would swaddle her. Not only is swaddling one of the “5 s’s”, but it worked like a charm for all the parents we knew. We were very lucky to have some large swaddle blankets given to us, but after a couple of months, our little monkey was already busting one or both arms out. Luckily for us, I had something on hand to try.
More than just a sleep sack, the Halo SleepSack Swaddle has wings attached. All I had to do was stick the baby in it, zip it up and then fold the wings over her arms. The wings have huge pieces of velcro on them, so they stayed so secure that our girl couldn’t bust out until she had outgrown it. And for babies that don’t like their arms swaddled anymore, you can just wrap the wings under their arms.
If I could only recommend one item to new parents, this would be it. It saved our sanity on many, many a day and night and we loved it so much that when she outgrew the small size, we went out to Bo Bebe to get her the next size up.
