Earlier this month I gave birth to my second child, a little boy we’ve named Jaxon. Now that this is my second time around at motherhood, I’m being more particular with the products that I’m using and one thing that has really interested me was swaddling.
Six and a half years ago I had never heard of swaddling nor had any type of experience with it. This time around though…I’ve talked to other moms and did extensive research online to educate myself on it. Everyone that I’ve talked to about it told me that HALO makes the best swaddling products so I was pretty excited to do this review.
Let’s talk about the benefits of Swaddling
After being tightly cuddled inside mom for nine months, it’s no wonder that some babies enjoy being swaddled after birth. It makes them feel snug, warm and secure. Swaddling can help calm many fussy or crying babies and even help them sleep longer in the first few months of life. In fact, many cultures have been swaddling their infants for thousands of years. Basic benefits of swaddling:
* Swaddling is a great way to soothe and calm a fussy baby by giving him a feeling of security, similar to being in the womb.
* A newborn cannot regulate his temperature as well as an adult, so swaddling keeps his body warm. (Just make sure that he doesn’t become overheated.)
* Swaddling often helps a baby sleep longer because it prevents the sudden movements (startle reflex) that can cause him to wake up.
* Swaddling can help a baby focus on breastfeeding, helping to keep his arms and legs out of the way.
* Swaddling prevents a newborn baby from scratching himself with his nails.
The company sent me one of their new SwaddleSure adjustable swaddling pouch’s to review for you. It’s made out of 100% super soft cotton and the size that I received is the NB (for 6-12 lb.) babies.
If you are unsure on how to swaddle your baby…each SwaddleSure package has instructions and a diagram to show you how to do it correctly.
The SwaddleSure by HALO is an adjustable swaddling pouch that is very unique. It features a patented three-point fastening system that resists breakouts for superior, more secure swaddling. The generous wings & fasteners offer maximum adjustability, for a perfect snug fit. The roomier pouch design ensures healthy hip development and easy diaper access. Back is best is embroidered on the front to remind parents & caregivers to place the child on his/her back for resting & sleeping.
I really love how easy the SwaddleSure is to use on Jaxon. You can tell he really does enjoy being put into the SwaddleSure and quickly falls asleep shortly thereafter. It keeps him warm and comfortable…as snug as a bug in a rug! Finally, the SwaddleSure washes & dries like a dream. Matter of fact, the more I launder it, the softer it gets!
You can purchase the Halo Swaddlesure Adjustable Swaddling Pouch, Blue, Small directly from Amazon at a great price. A nice item to give as a baby shower gift or to a new mom! It’s current less than ten bucks, what a deal and a great baby shower gift!
