A few days after I had my baby, I ran into one of the Obstetricians I saw when I was pregnant. She gave me two pieces of advice. First; everyone will try to give you advice on how to look after your baby - don't listen! Second; buy a zip up swaddle, they are a god-send. Obviously, I did not listen to the first piece of her advice because we went straight out and bought a Ergo Cocoon zip-up swaddle, and it is FANTASTIC! It has now become best thing I ever got for my newborn.
