Finn + Emma Muslin Blankets (pictured above) | $45 set of two
These organic cotton muslin swaddles are made with non-toxic, eco-friendly dyes. A loose weave keeps Baby from overheating and the large size (47-by-47-inches) provides plenty of fabric for easy swaddling. The durable fabric can later be used in other ways, too. Available in Peacoat Navy with robot heads and Rose Red with triangles.

Sozo Swaddle Blanket & Cap Set | $25
This 40-by-40-inch, super soft swaddle blanket pairs nicely with an accompanying cap to keep Baby warm. It’s great to use as a regular blanket, too. Available in a variety of animals.

JustBorn Sparkle Collection’s Mint Wear-A-Blanket | $16.99
Babies (ages 0 – 3 months) can keep warm and snug with the built-in mesh air vents for temperature control. The lightweight wearable blanket has a convenient bottom-up zipper for ease of nighttime diaper changes. Add a long-sleeve onesie underneath.

Ollie Swaddle | $59
Here’s a swaddle that’s super stretchy with Velcro fasteners. Moisture-wicking fabric reduces overheating, and the opening at the bottom makes diaper changes easy. It’s one size fits all and comes in four different colors — nest, sky, lavender and stone.

Summer Infant SwaddleMe 1st Year Safe Sleep Gift Set | $59.99
This set (available in grey, pink and blue) includes four different items to swaddle baby in various stages of his growth. The Pod and Original Swaddle recreate your womb and prevents the startle reflex during the first three months of life. The WrapSack is perfect for the swaddle-to-blanket transition, and the Wiggle is actually a wearable blanket baby wears for sleep time.

This cute bear keeps a close eye on your little one when he’s sleeping or playing.

It also has a temperature sensor, soothing sounds and lullabies, multiple viewing options (if you have more than one monitor) and automatic infrared night vision. You’ll love how easy it is to set up and use, too.

Withings Thermo | $99.95
Take your little one’s temperature while he’s sound asleep with this new Wi-Fi connected temporal thermometer. Download the free app and keep up with each individual reading, too. You’ll love seeing the time temps were taken and the notes feature where you can include medication doses at time intervals. Set it up to keep track of multiple kids’ temperatures all at once. When you take a reading, use the touch screen on the thermometer itself to select the child. Easy!

Momsense Smart Breastfeeding Meter | $89.99
Download the Momsense app, put on the earphones and place the microphone-embedded sensor below Baby’s ear to listen to him nurse! The sensor measures his breast milk intake, and you’ll get a detailed report at the end of your baby’s meal. You’ll both sleep easier when you know he has a full belly.
