How many swaddles do I need?
Owning five swaddles is a good rule of thumb to live by. It’s always smart to have a few extras on hand in case of any spills or accidents. Plan to have two swaddles in the baby’s nursery, one in your diaper bag, one in the laundry, and one in the family room or common living space.
When to transition out of swaddle?
Parents are always curious about when to transition their babies out of swaddles. It’s best practice to stop using a swaddle at night when they are about 3-5 months old. At first, they will most likely have trouble sleeping since they’re adjusting out of that womb-like environment and are learning how to control their natural reflexes.
Do you have to swaddle a newborn?
Parents typically find swaddling very useful for a few reasons. One being that swaddles are helpful in controlling their babies sleep position and can help them sleep through the night much longer. However, you do not have to use a swaddle on your baby. If your baby is perfectly content without the assistance of one, don’t bother even wrapping them. Just be sure to always lay your baby on his or her back when putting them in their crib for a nap or good nights sleep.
