The swaddle. It’s been a common practice among parents for hundreds of years, but since the semi-recent changes in sleep recommendations for babies, it’s become even more popular. When experts and doctors alike started the back to sleep initiative in the 1990’s, parents went back to the age old tradition of wrapping babies tightly in hopes of getting some shut eye. And while most babies love a good swaddle, recent news stories have highlighted some of the issues with swaddling – issues that are easily fixed with the correct technique and knowledge of safe swaddling.

AngelCare Wireless Baby Movement Monitor Gear Guide

Bringing home a new baby is an exciting yet scary time in a parent’s life. The immediate intense love that you experience for such a tiny little human quickly brings to the forefront all of the worries and fears – is he getting enough milk, is she crying from pain, are their dirty diapers supposed to be that color? While all of those are legitimate questions new parents often wonder, worrying about your child while they sleep is consistently on the top of our list of biggest concerns. Thankfully, technology has long given us the ability to watch our baby as they sleep from anywhere in the home. Not only can we check in on baby with just the slightest glance at a monitor, but we can also talk to baby and even check the temperature of the room. While all of these functions have greatly aided in easing our concerns as new parents, Angelcare has taken baby monitors even further by adding a wireless motion monitor able to detect even the slightest of baby’s movements in the crib. We call this a major parenting win.

How White Noise can help you and your baby sleep better

Sleep. It’s desired by mothers everywhere, yet fought by infants to the nth degree. We joke, almost hysterically, as we navigate our new world with very heavy eyelids, that one day our children will sleep til noon, avoiding teenage responsibilities and household chores. We hang tight to hope — hope that one day we might come to know what a full night’s sleep feels like. And thus, we read. We read every book offering tips and tricks to getting a baby to sleep through the night or go down easily for a nap, and we implement every trick with high expectations. While using infant swings, regulating room temperatures, designing a routine, and installing blackout curtains can certainly help, we found one tip that greatly intrigued us because of its soothing capabilities for both mom and baby: white noise.

Today, baby gear is innovative, modern and designed with a focus on quality, practicality, functionality, safety and style. And while it’s practical to receive a mountain of diapers at your baby shower, chances are they might not be the kind you plan on using for your baby.

Win It: Owlet Baby Monitor!

Being a new parent is the hardest job in the world. Caring for a tiny newborn is terrifying — especially once they’ve fallen asleep and are no longer cradled safely in your arms. While video monitors are pretty high-tech nowadays, they don’t tell the whole story — and many of us have probably pressed our faces to the pixelated screen to check on baby’s breathing, only to end up sneaking into the nursery… just to double triple-check.

For new parents, we highly recommend the Owlet Baby Monitor.
