I have many tender memories of swaddling my babies. This time with them as newborns is sacred, the act of wrapping them in their swaddle like a ritual, and so short lived until they become infants before our eyes.
With all of the joy, swaddling can be also be stressful for new moms trying to learn the best technique. And wriggling babies certainly don’t make the process easier! But really, if we step back and look, we can see how swaddling is like most of motherhood: sweet, sometimes challenging, and elusively transient.
Our Lenzing Modal fabric makes the Solly Swaddle so soft and lightweight, with just the right amount of stretch to get nice and tight. Perfect for swaddling, especially in these warm summer months. And long after the early swaddle days are done they are big enough to double as a blanket, a nursing cover, a stroller sunshade, or even a play blanket.
