Choosing the Right Blanket
We’re sure you probably already know this, but your baby is going to do a great deal of sleeping during their first few months of life. Sometimes referred to as the 4th trimester, your baby needs time to adjust from living in your womb to living in the outside world. You’ll want to choose the best blankets for both security and comfort to ease your baby into life outside the womb.
Babies are just as unique and robust in personality as we are. Some babies loved to be swaddled and feel just as warm and cocooned as they once felt in the womb. Don’t be surprised if your baby fights the swaddle and likes a looser wrap. Some parents might be surprised to find that their baby doesn’t go for the swaddling but rest assured it’s completely normal.
