Swaddle Love is an entertaining and practical guide full of candid storytelling and heartwarming humour, that explores the history, science, and techniques of swaddling. It's a joyful celebration of babies, parenthood, and sleeping eight hours a night.
In 2003, pregnant with her first daughter, Raegan Moya-Jones began an unforgettable journey. From Aussie emigrant and anxious mother-to-be, to business entrepreneur, and now author of the quintessential book on swaddling, Raegan's path has been peppered with successes and challenges, laughter and tears, but most of all, it has been traveled with passion.
"If you've ever been faced with an inconsolable newborn, you realize the value of swaddling. It seems like magic, but of course makes perfect sense: a baby is held quite snugly in the womb for months, and there is great comfort in returning to that. Raegan Moya-Jones is known for the beautiful blankets everyone wants, and now with Swaddle Love gives us a practical and passionate guide -- not only how to swaddle but also why to swaddle. It's a book that makes a parent's life easier and a baby's more soothing." - Peg Moline, Editor in Chief, Fit Pregnancy
"Swaddle Love helps parents understand the swaddle's vital role in helping young babies feel calm and secure – essential ingredients for getting a good night's rest." - Jennifer Waldburger and Jill Spivack, creators of The Sleepeasy Solution
"Mother Goose rhymed about it. Hippocrates taught it to his students. It helped a tiny tot in a Bethlehem manger get his first night of sleep. Even though it's been practiced by countless cultures for thousands of years, swaddling has become a lost art. All that's changing thanks to Raegan Moya-Jones, the Raphael of the swaddling renaissance. Swaddle love illustrates what every parent needs to know: swaddling helps babies sleep soundly and for longer periods of time, and fosters that vital connection between parent and child. For the countless moms and dads who have seen 4:15 a.m. on the bedside clock one too many times, swaddle love - and a half dozen muslin wraps - just might change their lives." - Shawn Bean , Senior Editor, Babytalk Magazine
