With Sprout due in a couple of weeks, baby announcements have been on my mind. I love getting them in the mail from friends and family, and we sent them with our daughter, so I know we'll be sending them out this time.

Getting a good night's sleep is a number 1 priority for most new parents. Since brand-new babies can need a lot of help to get to sleep (and stay that way), anything that helps is invaluable! With our daughter, swaddling was crucial but it was almost impossible to do in the teeny receiving blankets that many people tend to give as gifts.
