New #AliyasMustHaves: SWADDLE EDITION!
We've narrowed down our most favorite swaddles in 4 different categories!
1) BEST PERSONALIZED/ KEEPSAKE SWADDLE 👉🏼 @signaturecreationsbyliz
I was able to custom design Aliya's first swaddle pod (which we used for her announcement photo at the hospital!) by picking my favorite color, font, and design and Liz brought it to life along with a matching headband! Because I was so happy with how it turned out, I later also picked out a custom designed floral square swaddle blanket, and now those styles are some of her best selling! Aliya's definitely a trend setter already ☺️ (both styles shown in first photo)
2) BEST CONVERTIBLE SWADDLE 👉🏼 @halosleep #HaloSleepSack (shown in pages 2-4) Aliya's been using the Halo swaddles since her first night at home and sleeps so well in it! We bought it in almost every color/pattern/fabric. What I love is that we can use it as a secure swaddle to minimize startling, or as a safe sleeping bag with arms out for self soothing while the vest keeps the fabric safely in place. The zipper makes it super easy for diaper changes too!
3) BEST EASY-TO-USE SWADDLE 👉🏼 The #Woombie by @woombieusa (pages 5-7)
This is seriously a lifesaver for those who aren't swaddle-savvy (it's as easy as zipping up a zipper!) and super snug and stretchy (best for smaller to average sized babies). I like to use it after middle-of-the-night nursing sessions / diaper changes (while I'm half asleep myself) so it's a one step soother when I put her back to bed. Another bonus: it comes in breathable mesh styles for summer or warm quilted styles for winter!
4) BEST TRADITIONAL SWADDLE 👉🏼 @AdenAndAnais Organic Cotton Muslin square swaddle blankets! (Pages 8-10)
They are super soft and lightweight, perfect for year-round swaddling without overheating. The muslin material has a bit of stretch too, so baby can move hips and legs, but you can wrap it snug enough to keep them from startling themselves and waking up too soon. It's our most used swaddle now! (We also love several other #adenandanais products such as their muslin burpy bibs, bandana bibs, and onesies!) Hope this helps you mamas out there!
