Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in your life! Your little bundle of joy will change everything in your life while you gain access to the best club in the world – motherhood.
When I had my first baby, I was a little overwhelmed, not only at all the things that come along with being a first time mom, but I was nervous that I wouldn’t know what was best for my little one. Sleep was a huge concern of mine. What if she didn’t sleep? Where would she sleep? Would I ever sleep again?
During my preparations for my baby, I learned quickly from other moms (including my own mom!) that swaddling a baby and keeping them close, were two key factors in us both getting sleep. That’s when my love of SwaddleMe first started.
I used SwaddleMe blankets with my newborn, not only because they were one of the most trusted brands, but because they made the swaddle process so easy for this nervous new mom. The SwaddleMe blankets were even a cinch for dad to do! Have you ever watched a newborn nurse fly through the swaddle process like a pro and sat there thinking “I’ll never be able to do that like her.” Yep, that happened to me! But my SwaddleMe blankets made swaddling my tiny newborn so much easier than I could have imagined.
Since newborns love to be wrapped up when they sleep, it actually helps them sleep longer because it calms the “startle effect.” I credit my SwaddleMe blankets as a contributing factor in my first baby sleeping through the night at 2 weeks.
I know, I know. I should never brag about those things because every baby is different and you just never know what you’re going to get when it comes to a baby sleeping, but I always recommend SwaddleMe swaddle blankets to my friends who are expecting. These infant wraps are designed to keep baby snug, safe, and comfy every night throughout their first year. Remember: when baby sleeps better, you sleep better!
Over the years since I had my first baby, SwaddleMe’s brand has evolved to so much more than just a wonderful swaddle. They have adorable soothers, fantastic muslin blankets and a brand new bedside sleeper for baby that might just be your answer to safely “co-sleeping” with baby, but keeping baby at a safe distance.
The new SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper is the only bedside sleeper with an adjustable incline, ensuring your little one sleeps comfortably through the night. The adjustable height allows it to fit next to beds of different heights and keeps baby right by your side, within arm’s reach and at eye level, while still safely occupying his own space. It’s a safe alternative to bed sharing.
I always kept my newborns in my room in a bassinet or playard right next to my bed so that I could tend to them in the middle of the night without completely getting out of bed and going to another room. I wish this SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper was around when I had my first baby because it would have helped this c-section mom so much.
The By Your Bed Sleeper has breathable mesh sides and a 2-position adjustable incline (20 degrees and 30 degrees) that safely elevates baby’s head for easier breathing, better digestion and more comfortable sleep.
it features a side-to-side manual rocking option that allows parents to soothe baby without getting out of bed. The soothing unit is great, as it includes 2-speed vibration, lullabies, nature sounds, and a soft-glow nightlight.
And if all those wonderful features aren’t enough, the SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper isn’t going to break the bank either. It retails for only $99 and comes in a modern grey with blue accents.
