Only what you need for your baby. Really. (OK – and some fantastic things you don’t that are pretty cool.)
I just had tea with our fantastic post-partum doula, Caroline, yesterday and she mentioned my swaddle round-up and a new swaddle on the market, the True Womb Sleeping Swaddle. I hadn’t seen it before so I thought I’d pass it along to all of you to see if anyone’s tried it and liked it (or tried it and not liked it). It resembles the Miracle Blanket but Baby’s arms are in little pouches instead of wrapped. Also: it closes with Velcro. A lot of Velcro, apparently, which Caroline and I (and a couple Amazon reviewers) agreed sounded pretty loud for late-night diaper changes. But who knows? Maybe it’s awesome. If you know, let us know!
