~When did swaddlers become the rage? When I had my babies, they were swaddled using regular flannel baby blankets. We wrapped them tightly in the blanket making “baby burritos”. In my visits around the web and in infant shops, I’ve found that swaddlers have become de rigueur for babies. Add swaddlers to the list of “must makes” for baby boy. Need a baby gift? These swaddlers are perfect. Make sure to look at the wonderful knit swaddler pattern, Owlie Sleep Sack, with a matching hat at the end of the blog. I’m dyeing BFL fiber to spin and make the set.
