6 ways of using the humble swaddle that have nothing to do with swaddling
Swaddles are amazingly versatile, and investing in a few good ones will do the job of several products!
Breastfeeding cover Either drape or tie the swaddle around your neck for a quick and easy breastfeeding cover, especially if your bub gets easily distracted.
Tummy time mat Lay the swaddle on the carpet at a friend’s place, on the grass at the park, or anywhere you want to ensure a clean, soft space for your bub when out of the house (or in!)
Pram cover Keep out wind, sun, light and people’s peering eyes and poking fingers by throwing a swaddle over the pram when you go out. I’ll never understand why people think they can touch your baby without your permission!
Spew Rag Particularly for friends who aren’t used to babies, throw the swaddle over their shoulder to catch any milk that might want to make a re-appearance.
Change table cover For an easy to wash change table cover, lay over the change table mattress. It will make it more comfortable for baby and you can just throw it in the wash if any accidents happen!
Scarf for mummy It’s a great way to carry around a spare swaddle! Plus it’s soft, feels good and looks great!
Whatever you use it for, a great swaddle will always come in handy!
