This book contains some really great advice for new parents! However, with only a couple paragraphs dedicated to swaddling, I felt the book could have expanded on this area. My girlfriends and I have found that swaddling is one of the best things you can do for your newborn, especially if they are colicky or have difficulty getting sufficient quality sleep! The only swaddling product that has successfully done away with all of the concerns of swaddling is TrueWomb. http://truewomb.com/ The material is light and breathable, helping to keep your baby from overheating. It is virtually impossible for baby to get out of with its separate pouches for each arm and a pouch for the legs, making it a safe alternative to blankets that can become suffocation risks once your baby wiggles out of them. And best of all, unlike any other swaddling blanket, it actually mimics the womb. Your baby can move her arms up and down, but not out. And she can kick her little legs out, and the stretchy cotton material returns them to the fetal position. I have found that a well-rested baby is a happy baby. And a happy baby makes a happy parent!
