Miracle Blanket

From Miracle Blanket. This swaddle blanket helps put your baby to sleep, especially if she has trouble sleeping on her back or side. It also aids with breastfeeding, and can help keep your baby from scratching her precious face. Our team loves this product: "This swaddle blanket worked great for us ... it does not come undone during the night like most other swaddle blankets. It's made out of super-soft, stretchy cotton and comes in lots of colors. I swaddled my babies every night until they were about four months old."

Price: $29.99
