Favorite product to help transition your baby out of traditional swaddles?

Hey mamas! My little one isn’t showing signs of needing to transition out of swaddles quite yet, but I want to be ready for it! Are the Nested Bean sleep sacks worth it? Something else you would recommend to make the process easier? She sleeps sooo well when swaddled, so I’m dreading this transition.

My 5-year-old is sick. How do I keep him from infecting our infant?

We have a 5-year-old at home and are expecting a baby girl next month. Our son is excited to be a big brother, but I’m worried about keeping those kindergarten colds and germs from our newborn. I didn’t go out and about to many public places with our son when he was a young infant for the same reason. Tips on how to handle without upsetting big brother or worse, getting baby sick?
