Swaddling is a hot topic of discussion amongst new parents; we chat about what products we use, whose baby loves it, whose baby hates it, and when we stopped using them all together. I think if all new parents wore badges, similar to Girl/Boy Scouts, we would all wear the swaddling badge with an extra sense of pride. If your newborn will tolerate it, a successful swaddle generally means sleep for baby and you (yay!). My adventures with swaddling have just come to an end at 14 weeks, but I will share with you how we finally arrived at this unfamiliar place.
