Day One: Swaddlers
Wrapping your baby with her arms tucked in tightly at her sides often has a soothing effect on fussy newborns. But getting the technique down with a blanket can be tricky.
Halo’s Chenille SleepSack Swaddle 3-Piece Set, $48, eliminates the guesswork. The cozy sleep sack features two fabric panels that easily secure with Velcro.
When she’s outgrown the swaddling stage, at around 4 months old, remove the panels and continue using the sleep sack. (The set also includes a cotton bodysuit and footed pajamas.)
