When Rory was tiny we swaddled him to allow him to feel snug just like being in the womb. It worked like a charm as he slept for a long time completely content. He and I both love the Aden and Anais swaddles (Jungle Jam is our favourite design) which we still use as burp cloths, blankets or just for comforting and chewing. In fact I would say that they were easily one of my new born essentials. Now that Rory is a little bigger and can control his arms he has progressed on to using a sleeping bag. We still use Aden and Anais as they’re so soft and familiar. These also work like a charm… Rory sleeps from 7pm until 7am every night.
