How Swado Swaddle Stacks Up To The Competition

How Swado Swaddle Stacks Up To The Competition

Your baby will be here soon!  You’ve been making your hospital bag list, and shopping away on your baby registry. You’ve been reading all of the “Best” product lists, watching the “Must have” videos -  and you're overwhelmed!

You search for “swaddle” on Amazon and there are pages and pages of listings.  You read that some babies like to be bundled tightly, but that some babies like to sleep with their arms by their head. You also read that some babies suck their fingers as they sleep, and others don't.  There's so much information, but how do you know even what your baby will like or what size swaddle you should get? Will your baby outgrow the size within the first couple of weeks?

Don't worry! That's where we come in. When it comes to swaddling, many parents will agree that an easy swaddle is far easier than a plain swaddle blanket. Given so many products out there, we made a comparison chart to give you a quick overview of all your options.
