Any parent of a newborn understands the crucial concept of ‘swaddling’. Small babies like to be wrapped up like little burritos, because it harkens back to the snug and cozy fit that they experienced in the womb. You can swaddle your baby in any blanket or long piece of fabric, but swaddling is definitely made a whole lot easier with an organic velcro-laden contraption called the ‘Swaddleme’ by Kiddopotamus.

I accidentally discovered the beauty of this fabulous invention when a friend gave me a Swaddleme as a gift for my new baby. (Thank you Jeremy!) I’ve since thrown all of my intricate swaddle-folding skills to the wind, as the Swaddleme is so much easier to wrap up than a blanket – and virtually impossible for baby to wriggle out of. This baby-sized straight-jacket comes in organic cotton for green-minded mothers out there, and is a must for any new parent.

    This blanket didn\’t work for my wriggly newborn at all! My doula confirmed it hasn\’t been the best for her past clients either. Our little one would squirm to get his arms free and end up bunching the far too ample fabric by his face giving us SIDS fears. We had much better luck with the Miracle Blanket. With extra flaps for arms the MB was truly a straight jacket he rarely escaped! Unfortunately the MB isn\’t available in organic or this great modern Swaddleme print. It is available in natural (undyed?) cotton. Check out the demo video at http://www.miracleblanket.com

    awwww…pedro is so gorgeous!! looks so sweet and peaceful!!

  4. I love the idea but still think doing the swaddling myself with a more thin piece o’ cloth would be more snug. Glad it’s working out for Baby P, just don’t think it would have worked on my monkeys. : )

    P.s. It might be good to mention that all young babies should also have a wedge on either side to prevent stomach sleeping… wonder if there’s an organic option? I often used swaddling cloths tightly rolled on either side, worked well.

    This is also a prime time for you to mention Halo Sleep Sacks. I’ve done zero research on whether they’re green but I do know they kept my babies warm without danger during those first crucial months. (SIDs haunts me, I knew a baby that died of it.)

    I hate the velcro sound when you are adjusting it or taking them out. We just used your standard old swaddling blankets and were fine. Make sure they are big enough and you’ll be able to get them tight. And smaller rectangular shapes worked better when he was very tiny.

    I highly recommend the Woombie for swaddling…it’s a sack that mimics the womb. My sister sent me one as a gift for my second baby, and she only slept well when it her Woombie (and we have a variety of swaddle blankets, including Swaddlemes).
