Nothing ruins the magic of a good night’s sleep like a swaddle escape.
If your little one has more moves than Houdini, try the TrueWomb sleeping swaddle.
The stretchy cotton/spandex wrap mimics the natural fetal position, while letting your little burrito stretch his limbs without breaking free. Pocket sleeves keep arms contained, so when the inevitable startle reflex strikes, Junior won’t wake himself with a hand to the face.
Foolproof Velcro closures make it easy for the most bleary-eyed parent to snugly secure the swaddle — even after a middle-of-the-night diaper presto-chango.
