5 Best Baby Swaddles for 2020

Best Baby Swaddles of 2020, a couple smiling down at a baby who is swaddled in a white blanket decorated with black stars.

Swaddling a baby is an age-old practice that helps a newborn sleep sounder and more securely. Traditionally, a thin muslin blanket is folded snugly around a baby to prevent the startle reflex from waking up a slumbering baby. Swaddles don’t just prevent the startle reflex, however. Swaddling also helps babies stay warm and cozy all night – without the use of loose blankets.

From muslin blankets to designer swaddles, there are dozens of choices available, so how do you figure out which baby swaddles are the best?

The answer is, you don’t. We’ve got you covered!

Woombie Grow with Me Baby Swaddle

Did you know traditional baby swaddle blankets can only be used for about three months? Once a baby learns to roll over, it’s time to transition your baby out of a swaddle. The Woombie Grow with Me Baby Swaddle solves this problem because it works for five stages of babyhood. The Woombie even transforms into a wearable blanket so your toddler can continue to receive the benefit of toasty toes without loose blankets.

The Woombie Grow with Me is a one-piece swaddle so there’s no need to fold or wrap your baby – it’s all done for you!

SwaddleMe Original Swaddle

Like the Woombie baby swaddles, the SwaddleMe Original Swaddle takes the guesswork out of swaddling. Slide your baby into the soft 100% cotton pouch and fold the wings over to secure – that’s it! The SwaddleMe Original is available in various sizes, but the 0-3 month pack works for infants less than 26 inches long and who weigh between 7 and 14 pounds. The SwaddleMe Original swaddles are machine washable.

Does your baby love to rock in a swing? The slit in the swaddle allows your baby to remain swaddled while safely buckled into a swing or rocker.

Oliver & Rain Organic Muslin Swaddle Sampler

Want to try swaddling with a blanket? If you’re opting for the traditional folding and wrapping method, you’ll need to use a thin fabric like muslin. These Oliver & Rain Organic Muslin Swaddle blankets are made from 100% organic muslin cotton, which means they are super soft, lightweight, and breathable.

Even when your baby outgrows a swaddle, you can continue to use these blankets in many ways, including:

  • As a nursing cover
  • As a drape over your stroller if it starts to rain
  • As a cozy blanket while cuddling on the couch together

Halo Sleepsack 100% Cotton Swaddle

The Halo Sleepsack is a 3-in-1 baby swaddle that acts as a wearable blanket when your infant baby is too big to have his arms tucked inside. Slide your baby into the pouch and then secure the wings with Velcro – it’s that easy! Middle-of-the-night diaper changes are a cinch with the inverted zipper that lets you change your baby without unfolding the top.

Halo Sleepsack is designed to promote healthy posture for the hips, and the base is wide enough to use if your baby uses a brace for hip dysplasia.

Henry Hunter Baby Swaddle Cocoon Sack

The Henry Hunter Baby Swaddle Cocoon Sack features a unique no-zip, no-fold construction. The cocoon slides over your baby’s body like a sock, and because there's no folding or zippers required, this baby swaddle is extra soft and snuggly. Despite the snug fit, the Henry Hunter Baby Swaddle Cocoon Sack has plenty of room at the bottom of the cocoon for your baby's hips to wiggle freely.

As a bonus, these swaddles look great in newborn photos.

Finding the right swaddle for your baby

Finding the best swaddle for your baby ensures that she – and you – get a good night’s sleep. No matter which swaddle you choose, your baby’s swaddle keeps those little toes warm while helping your baby feel safe and secure.

Any of these five swaddles can give your baby a warm and cozy night of sleep. The hardest part is just deciding which one you want!
