A few weeks ago I was sent a couple of swaddles from Just Born. They’re a fairly new company, but I have to say they do make a great swaddle and sleep sack. I was sent two products to test out, the Deluxe Swaddle and the Wear-A-Blanket.
Let’s start with the Deluxe Swaddle. I really liked this swaddler. I tested it out with a friend’s baby and she enjoyed it too (aka: she stayed asleep like she usually does when swaddled). I love that it has the mesh pockets to allow for airflow. As a sleep coach I am always reminding parents that babies can and do overheat. It is better to sleep cooler, so that feature is a really nice addition. There are two other unique features to the Deluxe Swaddle, a head and neck support “cushion” and the fact that you can swaddle arms in or out. The head support cushion I was a little skeptical of at first, but it is a nice feature. A lot of babies, especially when they’re transitioning out of a swaddle, like to be arms out but still feel that swaddle around the belly, so that’s also a great feature. Here’s a video of the Deluxe Swaddle in action.
The one thing that is really unique about this sleep sack is the Comfort Wrap that goes over your baby’s belly. Now onto the Wear-A-Blanket. It provides a light pressure which can be really soothing for those colic babies and those with tummy troubles. You never want to use a blanket in the crib with a baby under a year old, so this provides a great alternative. It’s a perfect weight to wear regular pajamas underneath and not overheat, too.
The Just Born Deluxe Swaddle and the Wear-A-Blanket can both be borrowed from our lending library during either of our monthly sleep class.
