Let me just say swaddling makes a world of a difference in your baby's sleeping so I would love to share with you all about it.
First off, I would like to share a few wonderful facts about swaddling...
- Decreases risk of SIDS
- Reduces Colic & Fussiness
- Decreases occurrence of startle reflex which promotes better sleep which ultimately equals more sleep for Mom & Dad
- Helpful when Breastfeeding
But if you're like many parents you struggle with swaddling. You often wonder how those "hospital nurses" got your baby so snuggly bound...
If you're one of "those" I would love to introduce you to Swaddle Designs
because they make swaddling as easy as 1-2-3
(Head HERE to see just what I'm talking about)
With simple picture instructions printed on EVERY blanket you'll always remember how to
And not only do they make it super easy; they offer very stylish blankets! There's no reason your baby shouldn't be styling while swaddled.
And with 2 different fabric options:
Cotton Flannel & Cotton Marquisette
Cotton Flannel & Cotton Marquisette
There's a blanket for every season & every climate:
· Flannel is the #1 Choice in US hospitals for swaddling babies, because it is thin, lightweight, breathable, but not too thick. Cotton flannel is appropriate for moderate to cooler environmental temperature
· Marquisette is a very lightweight openweave fabric which is appropriate for warmer climates or summer swaddling. SwaddleDesigns Cotton marquisette is the highest quality open weave fabric because of our premium cotton yarns and thread count.
Swaddle Designs so generously sent us an Ultimate Receiving Blanket in their new Black Puppytooth
The 1st thing that I absolutely love about their blankets are the size (42x42). Anyone who has had a baby knows just how fast they grow which quickly means those receiving blankets just aren't doing it.
Also, their blankets are perfectly square which makes swaddling MUCH MUCH easier
Secondly, I love how stylish their blankets are! Seriously could you get any cuter?
And even though I am one of those "hospital nurses" I love the fact that the instructions are printed on EVERY blanket so Daddy & the grandparents always remember how to swaddle as well because a swaddled baby equals a happier baby (and Mommy & Daddy too).
Another thing that I absolutely LOVE about their company is their Safe Sleep Program.
As a mother/baby & pediatric nurse I absolutely love the fact that their company is helping to promote safe sleep practices. Back is truly the best for sleep!
And another key fact that EVERY parent should know is The Goldilocks Guide (Baby should not be too hot or too cold, but just right ~ comfortably warm)
Because did you realize that over chilling as well as overheating can increase the risk of SIDS?
But Swaddle Designs products don't just stop with their receiving blankets...they offer so much more from Adult Swaddle Wraps to crib sheets to clothing to burp cloths & more.
And to get you off to the right start with swaddling,
Swaddle Designs would like to extend their generosity by giving the chance for ONE LUCKY FOLLOWER to win an Ultimate Receiving blanket (choice of style & color)
