We had two for each of them. That way one could be in the wash. This was the one we used in the beginning.

Seconding the sleep sack. My baby was enormous (10.5 lbs at birth) and swaddling him with a blanket wasn't really even possible for very long. The velcro ones were amazing. We had these ones:

Using a swaddle cloth may help. These are some sleep sacks with arm flaps that worked wonders for our son when he got too big for swaddle cloths:

One issue babies have with the crib (which should have nothing but a fitted or tucked sheet on it unless a pediatrician says otherwise for your specific child), is that they can't feel the sides around them, mainly with their arms/hands. This can easily activate their fall reflex, which is the same thing that makes you feel like you're falling sometimes when you're passing out on the couch watching tv. A six-month-old has been able to feel his/her surroundings for longer than they've been out in the world, so that reflex is still pretty active. A loose-ish swaddle cloth or sleep sack (with the flaps) pulls their arms in so the reflex doesn't activate in their sleep so easily. If it's still bad, some will suggest putting a foam wedge under the sheet to prop the baby up against so there's a little bolstering. This can help some, but only do it if necessary; you don't want them dependent on it.

Babies' sleep improves significantly once they learn how to roll over to their stomachs, where most babies like to sleep. When he/she starts doing that, leave off at least one arm free so they can roll themselves into this position (you shouldn't lay them down that way). Studies have shown that this rolling over right before you fall asleep is a sort of systems and surroundings check and that it greatly helps overcome the fall reflex in babies once they gain that skill.

Also, make sure your crib is prepared correctly. A swaddle cloth can become a suffocation hazard if it comes loose (that's why we prefer the sack). Instead of using loose blankets for added warmth, use warm pajamas, which should fit tightly enough that they won't pull over the chin while fastened (zipped, buttoned, etc.). A white noise machine by the crib works wonders–professionals estimate that the womb is about as loud as a vacuum cleaner to the baby, so they're used to the constant noise. Try to start differentiating naps from overnight sleep; your baby might think he/she is just taking a nap and not sleep through the night. We use light music and keep a normal noise level in the rest of the house during naps. Complete dark and just white noise for overnight.

Hope this helps!

It looks like I overpaid. I got it when it was at $25, however I did get one "free" from the hospital -- "free" as in I owe 4 k on a hospital bill.

I've tried a lot of different things and what has worked has changed consistently so my suggestion is take what I tell you and just try it all and try other things too that I might not even say because you just don't know what will work for your baby! I try not to nurse to sleep for naps because I don't want him having that association.

In the beginning naps were easy because he would just fall asleep in a swing or in the rock n play. Then he would only fall asleep while I was wearing him. So I would strap him in my Tula carrier and go on a long walk in my neighborhood until he was asleep and then come home and do chores while he napped in the carrier on me. Other times I have put him in the rock n play and done this - started with a swaddle (we have loved the Love to Dream swaddle and the Halo fleece swaddle sleepsacks...each of these has worked at different times) and then sat on the yoga ball and bounced with him and shushed him (with white noise playing in the background with this white noise machine AND on the rock n play) and patted his back (I hold him in my left arm with his stomach facing me and his head resting on my arm and pat his back with my other arm) until he fell asleep. Sometimes I would have to use a paci and other times he would be indifferent to it. Once he's asleep I carefully place him in the rock n play. Heating up a blanket in the dryer beforehand and putting it under him while warm helps him a lot. Then putting a warm blanket over him (around his waist) and putting the rock function on the rock n play. We also have the Solly baby wrap that he falls asleep in pretty easily. Now he is 16 weeks and in daycare so he naps in his crib at home and I rock him in a rocking chair instead of on the ball for his naps. Patience is key. And trying different things and realizing that what works today may not work tomorrow and what didn't work yesterday may be the thing that does the trick today!!

He will also fall asleep in the car if he's tired or in his stroller on a walk whereas just a few weeks ago he wasn't doing either of those things. Good luck mama!

My daycare didn't swaddle either but they did let us bring in a sleep sack for naps. If your day care allows that you can try one like this...
