    With my first baby I had a mix of “regular” swaddles and velcro/zipper. With this one I am ONLY using velcro/zipper. I love the ones from Target with the elephant on the top.

    When the first got older I used the heck out of zipadeezips, but with this one I think I’m going to try to sew my own. Shit’s expensive.

    “Regular” swaddles are good as a light blanket in a carseat or whatever. They’re too finicky to use when you’re tired with a newborn, unless you have no other option.
