Best Swaddle Blankets for Baby

Are you looking for the perfect blanket for your baby or as a gift for your friend or relative’s baby?  It might be difficult to decide with so many baby blankets on the market that all feel so nice and soft.  Well, now there are specially designed blankets that are perfect for babies of every shape and size.  They are called Swaddle Blankets!

Swaddling is “an age-old practice of wrapping infants in blankets or similar cloth so that movement of the limbs is tightly restricted”.  Swaddling is meant to create a constricted feeling for baby similar to when they were in the womb. It is said to soothe babies and help them sleep if they tend to be irritable at night-time or wiggle around a lot.  While swaddling fell out of popularity in the seventeenth century it has become increasingly popular in modern times to help babies have fewer awakenings.

Here is a list of the Top 3 Swaddle Blankets for baby:
