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.

Every baby needs a sense of security, and along with a parent’s love, the next best thing is often a coveted security blanket. Providing comfort and calm, MiracleWare’s Muslin Security Blanket is made to not only soothe, but also hold up for years to come.
Babies spend nine months snuggled securely in your womb — and adjusting to the outside world can be tough! That’s why swaddling and baby wearing are so soothing for newborns. Now, there’s another comforting choice to add to that list: the Snuggle Me Organic Infant Cushion.
When done safely, co-sleeping can be extremely beneficial for both mom and baby.

Although it’s easy to accumulate piles of baby blankets as you prepare for your little one to arrive, it’s nice to have that really special one that you love to pieces and know you will keep as your baby grows. Maybe your baby will end up choosing the blanket that becomes “the one” but it sure does help to offer an absolutely gorgeous handmade blanket and encourage snuggling.
