Swaddling—wrapping a baby securely in a thin blanket—can help minimize the startle reflex, replicate the coziness of the womb, and calm a baby who’s overstimulated. To find the best swaddles, we had five families spend two weeks testing 11 of them with babies ranging in age from 2 to 12 weeks, and talked to four birth and postpartum experts. There’s no single swaddle that will work for every baby, and the right swaddle for one baby might even change between the newborn stage and later months. Still, we found that the Happiest Baby Sleepea is the most effective at keeping a baby securely wrapped, is among the easiest for parents to use, and is safe and comfortable for the baby.

Happiest Baby Sleepea, the best baby swaddle

Happiest Baby Sleepea

The best baby swaddle
The Sleepea is the most effective swaddle we tested. It keeps babies snug and secure with a unique interior Velcro panel and it’s safe, comfortable, and easy to use.
We recommend
Halo SleepSack Swaddle, a wearable blanket with wings

Halo SleepSack Swaddle

A wearable blanket with wings
This all-cotton swaddle uses less-restrictive exterior wings, and it has armholes for extended wear. Its roomy cut makes diaper changes more convenient. The Velcro is loud, however, and it’s easier to escape from than our top pick.
Another good choice
Woombie Air, a velcro-free “peanut” swaddle

Woombie Air

A Velcro-free “peanut” swaddle
A form-fitting neck-to-toe sack, this swaddle leaves a baby free to move their limbs and keep their hands closer to their face than with other swaddles.
