Modern Nursery Bedding & Swaddles
Swaddling is a traditional way of helping babies to sleep. It involves wrapping your baby in a thin blanket or fabric so they feel secure and warm. It helps babies feel safer and more secure as they adjust to their new lives outside the womb.
Newborn babies are so tiny that they can’t even hold their own head up yet! They need a lot of love and care from you as parents. This is why it is important to provide a warm, cozy environment for your new baby. With this in mind, we have compiled some of the best baby swaddle blankets and quilts for newborns. These soft and fluffy baby blankets will keep your baby warm while they feel loved and cared for all day long.
Whether you're shopping for your friend's baby shower or creating a gift registry of your own, baby swaddles are a must have item for any parent-to-be. While there is no one right way to swaddle your baby, the most important thing is that they feel safe and secure while sleeping.
Swaddling is an ancient practice that has been used since the beginning of time. It is believed that swaddling was first practiced by Egyptians as a way to keep the baby warm during cold weather. The practice continued throughout history until the 1800s when the American Academy of Pediatrics discouraged its use because of concerns about SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).
The modern version of swaddling involves placing a baby into a blanket with his arms tucked inside, like a baby burrito. This allows the baby to be snugly wrapped without restricting movement. If you choose to swaddle your baby yourself use lightweight and breathable materials such as cotton muslin blankets. Cotton is a natural fiber that is hypoallergenic and breathable. Make sure the baby is lying comfortably before leaving him alone. Never leave your baby unattended while he is asleep.
After the swaddling period is over, many parents move on to a sleep sack, which is a wearable blanket designed to keep babies warm while they sleep without having any loose blankets, as they can be a suffocation hazard and aren't approved for safe sleep.
