If you don't know, I am the mother of six wonderful children. They're all adults now, and my oldest daughter has given me two beautiful grandchildren. When she had her first one, she was having a little trouble with the baby not sleeping well. As new grandparents, we just had to come out to help. We found our little granddaughter fitful and fussy. I did what a mom of six would do, I swaddled my little granddaughter, and she fell asleep in my arms within minutes. My daughter didn't realize that her baby needed to be swaddled. She thought that because her daughter always fussed in the blanket and kicked it off, that she didn't like to be swaddled. Yet, just the opposite was true.
Babies just love to be swaddled! It may not seem like it at first. Like my granddaughter, a baby may make a bit of a fuss at first, but they soon settle down. Once swaddled, a new baby feels at ease, more like that tight warm place that was their "baby zone." When getting ready for a new baby, one item you need on your baby registry is a good swaddling blanket. I've seen many since I've become a grandmother, but non have impressed me as much as the Miracle Blanket from MiracleWare.
Why swaddle your baby? Do you think that it may hamper your babies development? With research, I found out that women have for centuries have swaddled their babies - you were probably swaddled as I was. Here are some more benefits of swaddling:
- Helps baby sleep better and longer
- Helps keep babies on their backs
- Prevents twitching and “starting” (Moro Reflex)
- Prevents facial scratches
- Makes breastfeeding easier
Swaddling will also help baby sleep on his/her stomach as well, but I was never a fan of back sleeping. I know they say it's better, but I always put my babies to sleep on their sides as a friend of mine's baby almost choked to death on his own vomit while sleeping on his back.

See how easy it is to swaddle your baby with the Miracle Blanket:
The fabric of the Miracle Blanket is a super soft cotton knit selected for several good reasons: cotton is breathable so that it can be used in warm climates while still being luxurious enough to keep your baby warm in cooler places; cotton has just enough stretch to absorb your baby’s movements without coming undone but it’s not so stretchy that it won’t stay tight; and, most importantly, cotton stands up to constant use and washing. Like any baby fabric, you should wash it in the cold cycle and dry it on the delicate cycle.
Along with the Miracle Blanket, MiracleWare also kindly sent me their Serenity Blanket and Security Blanket. Their other items are just as impressive as the Miracle Blanket.
This big 47"x 47" cotton muslin Serenity Blanket has four soft layers of fabric. It is so soft to the touch! After I washed it in cold water and hung it to dry (it is tumble dry warm), it was even softer. This blanket’s value will surely be realized both in the home and while traveling from birth through the early years. The long-lasting muslin fabric is sturdy enough for endless washes and actually softens over time. The loose weave of the fabric makes it breathable yet comforting and warm. This is one indulgence that may actually be hard to part with. Easy to care for washing in a cold gentle cycle, non-chlorine bleach only and warm tumble dry. I got the cute neutral fabric Lions and Giraffes. It will be great for my little grandson and future grandchildren when they come to visit - yes, I am keeping this for sleepovers!
The other item that MiracleWare sent me was a 2-pack of their Muslin Security Blankets. I just love these two little security blankets. I love my security blanket when I was a toddler. I took it everywhere with me and played with it constantly, but it was a full size crib blanket. It got dirty and torn, and I felt so sad when it had to be tossed. These security blankets are small measuring just 16"x 15", but are perfect for a little one to run around with.
It's just a little piece of heaven for baby and toddler alike in this security blanket that’s all-natural 100% cotton muslin edged with a silky strip of satin. Little ones just love to run their fingers on that strip of satin. Comfort and style come together with the choice muslin fabric that’s not only soothing and gentle, but durable with it’s flexible yet strong weave that actually becomes softer with age. It’s a calming treasure that won’t get left behind. Easy to care for washing in a cold gentle cycle, non-chlorine bleach only and warm tumble dry.
