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.

Being trapped inside all winter is hard. It’s even harder when you have a little one! It’s difficult, if not close to impossible, to do some of the things you normally love. Your stroller and baby carrier grow dusty with neglect as the cold wind blows. Even just bundling up to get to the car is an act of great skill. You know how to dress yourself appropriately for the weather, but how warm is your little one?
We don’t like being cold but we also don’t like being trapped inside all winter long! That’s why we searched high and low for the coolest – warmest – cold weather baby gear that could take us from cabin fever to snowy play date! Even as the weather warms up in some of the country, this cool gear is useful for cool spring days, and thinking ahead for fall – grab the end of season gear now while it may be on sale!

We all snuggle up under blankets at night. That’s the warmest, coziest way to catch your z’s, after all! Due to safety reasons, our sweet babies don’t get the same luxury. When the weather is cooler we have to resort to dressing our little ones in multiple layers to stay warm and safe at night. Even the average sleep sack doesn’t add much in terms of real warmth on a cold winter night.
