Swaddling works wonders for soothing and boosting baby sleep – until it doesn’t. Suddenly your little Houdini is breaking one hand out, and two and before you know it every limb is flailing about in the crib. What’s next? Start with a swaddle wrap that keeps arms in thanks to snaps or Velcro and then transition to a wearable blanket or sleep sack. Here are 9 of our favorites. Sleep well!
