Swaddling Blankets

When choosing blankets and swaddles for children, consider closures like zippers and velcro that can be easier to manipulate for individuals with decreased hand function and strength. As the child develops and learns to roll over on their own, it is recommended to not use a swaddling blanket to make sure their arms are free to help with their mobility.
