Swaddling baby can be a game-changer when it comes to getting sleep in those early weeks and months.

There’s a little secret parents know, and it’s all to do with getting a good night’s sleep. To help their babies stay asleep for longer, many parents are opting to swaddle as it can help maintain body temperature while keeping them nice and snug and feeling safe.

Studies have suggested that this age-old tradition of wrapping your baby can help calm a baby so they wake less frequently and sleep longer than non-swaddled babies.

We think it’s certainly worth a shot – so we have rounded up what we feel are the best swaddles out there.
