Ahh….infant sleep problems. Thankfully, I am well past those days (well, except for the fact that my 7-year-old regularly rises at 5:30am…). But I vividly remember that phase of being so absolutely exhausted that I could not keep my eyes open during 2am feedings. Sure enough, Summer Infant (the makers of the #1 Swaddle Wrap), reports that parents lose upwards of 875 hours of sleep during their child’s first two years of life.
Summer Infant tackles this problem head-on with its newly expanded Swaddle Me collection. There are two new swaddling products–the SwaddleMe WrapSack and the ComfortMe wearable blanket–which extend how long your baby can stay swaddled beyond the newborn days. This not only helps older babies sleep better, but also ensures they sleep safer (swaddling can help prevent SIDS). The SwaddleMe WrapSack gives growing babies additional room to squirm around, and can be worn with babies’ arms in or out, while the ComfortMe blanket provides large arm openings allowing for extra comfort and airflow (plus a bottom zipper for easy nighttime changes).
If you need a baby shower gift or new baby gift this Spring or Summer, check out Summer Infant’s new swaddle designs–conveniently available in pink, blue, or gender-neutral colors and patterns. With prices starting at just $14.99 for a single SwaddleMe (and going up with various gift packs), you’ll easily find something at the right price point. Of course, that good night’s sleep is….priceless.
I was given sample products for purposes of this review. All opinions are, as always, entirely my own.
