A swaddle or sleep wrap can really seem to work well for SOME babies.. with anything baby related.. it's going to work for some and not for others.. swaddles can help a newborn baby feel like they are basically in the womb again.. constricted arms and legs.. those kind of help the baby get in a relaxed state and not wake themselves up :) Now.. some downfalls to swaddles.. some babes get dependent on them to fall asleep.. meaning that end up having trouble on their own!

For us.. we tried swaddling Monroe when he first came home.. but the dude LOVES to stretch out.. so we said bye to the swaddles fast!
