waddling babies dates back to time immemorial – even baby Jesus was traditionally swaddled. And swaddling has come back into fashion in recent years as it has been shown to help baby settle and sleep.

Mums can choose to swaddle their baby in almost any piece of fabric and muslins are perfect for this. Soft and breathable, a muslin can also offer a variety of colours and prints. Indeed, mums often chose what muslins they want on the look alone.

Muslins are also useful as burp and dribble cloths; one draped on the shoulder of whoever’s carrying baby can save many a spoilt top!! I would have thought that virtually every new mum should buy a selection! Or be given them as a gift. Muslins are often packed attractively making the ideal gift.

However, swaddling a baby is not that easy, especially if mum has no one to demonstrate! In this case, the ‘ready-made’ versions are ideal. Designed to make swaddling simple, there are a number of versions – just read on for more information!

Drifting peacefully to sleep

Iconic sleep brand, Love To Dream™, distributed in the UK by Cheeky Rascals, helps all little ones drift off to a peaceful sleep with its pioneering and revolutionary swaddles and sleeping bags.

Thoughtfully designed, the brand’s award-winning Swaddle UP encourages children to drift off to the land of nod in the natural sleep position with their arms up. The one of a kind swaddling solution, suitable from new-born up to 4 months, features the patented ‘wing tip’ design, enabling little ones to bring hands to face and mouth to self soothe, helping to establish positive sleep patterns from day one.

Thrilled to have launched two striking new designer prints this September, the Love To Dream range at Cheeky Rascals now features more choice than ever before. The two gorgeous designer prints in the ground-breaking Swaddle UP, include the Starry Night print, featuring a classic black and grey star design, and Kisses, which displays a bold grey and orange hugs and kisses print.

Love To Dream was founded in Sydney in 2009 by entrepreneurial first-time mum, Hana-lia Krawchuk, who noticed that her son kept on ‘breaking out’ of his traditional swaddling cloth. After extensive research into the history of swaddling, and supported by medical research that suggests if babies can self soothe then they tend to sleep better and for longer, Hana-lia created the world’s very first ‘Swaddle UP™ - a simple to use swaddling suit that allows a baby to safely sleep in the natural arms up position, while also allowing them to self soothe. Eight years on and with an ever-growing collection of styles, colours and gender-neutral prints, Love To Dream is fast becoming the world’s leading sleep brand.
