Additionally, they felt the best swaddle blankets was almost too tight at times. Remember, a sleep sack should allow little ones to move freely once they can roll over. To ensure your child’s safety, don’t compress their arms, chest, or body. About five seconds is all you’ll need to get your little one into this amazing swaddle.

Thanks to an easy-access zip design, it makes a late-night nappy change a breeze. It’s a great option for older babies in particular as it combines a roomy design with the traditional principles of swaddling.

The company also sells matching headbands and newborn sets, so you don’t have to hunt for those important accessories for the perfect photo. The Tommee Tippee Sleepee Snuggee features a unique design with zipper covers to prevent little faces from getting scratched by the fastener while they sleep.
It’s very easy to put on, especially if you are one of those people that can’t wrap a regular swaddle for your life (I’m talking to my husband).
