At Caden Lane, you’ll discover the softest, most stylish baby swaddle wraps you can get your hands on. They’re super stretchy and easy to use, helping you calm down a fussy newborn and get them to sleep. And with so many amazing designs to choose from, the only hard part is picking just one!
In this article, we’re going to introduce you to a few of our personal favorite swaddles for newborn babies - fully explaining what separates them from all the other options you have at your fingertips. First, though, let’s talk about why you need the best baby swaddle in the first place.
Here’s Why You Need the Best Baby Swaddle for Your Newborn…
Swaddling is an age-old practice that involves wrapping a newborn snugly in a blanket or cloth to provide warmth and gentle compression on the torso, helping keep their moro reflex, or startle reflex, at bay. They feel safe when wrapped in a swaddle - and you can use yours to keep your little one from startling awake. And as the parent of a newborn, getting the best baby swaddle is going to be one of the best purchases you make!
The main reason you need a good swaddle for your baby is to make them comfortable enough to sleep. But it doesn’t just help them fall asleep - the right swaddle can keep them asleep for longer too! You can finally catch up on some work around the house as they nap soundly in their crib. Or, catch some zzz’s yourself.
The benefits of swaddles aren’t limited to sleep, though. This wrapping technique can assist with breastfeeding, too. Because your newborn is bundled up tightly and unable to move much, they focus on latching rather than their own movements. The warmth of a swaddle can also help you keep them safe from cold temperatures.
All things considered, a quality swaddle is worth every penny - it’s only right you take the time to find the best of the best. But how can you be sure you’re getting that? What key features separate the best swaddles for newborns from the rest? Let’s take a look below.
What Separates the Best Swaddles for Newborns From the Rest?
As with any product you buy your baby - whether it be their newborn take home outfit or baby crib sheets - this isn’t something you should take lightly. Your baby deserves the very best, and the main criteria you should consider is the materials that are going to come in contact with their skin. But beyond finding soft, skin-safe materials, you should take into account versatility, design, and personalization.
Gentle, Skin-Safe Materials
Above all else, you need a swaddle that’s made with gentle, skin-safe materials. After all, if your little one’s skin is being agitated by the swaddle - what’s the point? They’ll only end up fussing more.
That’s why we use the softest, stretchiest material possible in our swaddles. We use either bamboo or a polyester blend that is super soft and stretchy. Regardless of which material you go with, your baby is going to fall in love at first touch! And because it has just the right amount of stretch, actually swaddling your child is quick and easy.
What Else Can the Swaddle Be Used For?
As you may already know, swaddling comes to an end just as soon as it begins. Within four months, your baby will have developed to the point where swaddling is no longer safe. That’s why you need to consider whether the swaddle you’re eyeing can be used after this point in time. This helps you get your money’s worth.
And as it turns out, our swaddles aren’t just for swaddling - you can use yours for anything! They work great for tummy time, and they can be used as a security blanket long after you’ve phased them out of swaddling. This will be your go-to blanket for years to come.
Cute, Fun Designs You’re Excited to Show Off
Let’s face it - part of the joy of having a newborn comes from showing them off to friends and family!
