When W was a newborn we depended on swaddling because it definitely helped him sleep better. I remember when we learned how to swaddle during our birthing class and I wondered how I would ever do it on a real baby. It’s funny how good you get at something when you it helps you get a little extra rest in those early days!
SwaddleDesigns is introducing their newest product, the Swaddle Duo. The Swaddle Duo offers two premium, soft cotton swaddling blankets in a gift box, making it a wonderful baby shower gift. The blankets included are:
- The Ultimate Receiving Blanket which is a lightweight premium cotton flannel blanket designed for moderate to cooler temperatures. SwaddleDesigns Cotton Flannel is made from premium preshrunk domestic cotton.
- The Marquisette Swaddling Blanket which is a very lightweight openweave cotton blanket designed for warmer temperatures. SwaddleDesigns Cotton Marquisette is similar to muslin but is made from premium quality yarns.
We received the Blue Classic Peace Love Swaddle Duo (which is also available in pink) and I was excited to feel these blankets! I have learned that swaddling blankets are not only used for swaddling! They have many uses around the house when you have a baby! Some of W’s favorite blankets started out as swaddling blankets and are now used at nap time and bed time! The Blue Classic Peace Love Swaddle Duo blankets are both so soft! I loved that they come together in one package so that you are prepared for any environmental temperature. Studies have shown that both overheating and overchilling increase the risk of SIDS as stated in the International Journal of Epidemiology 1996 so it is great to be able to get two blankets in one package so you are prepared.
Another thing that I loved about the Swaddle Duo is that swaddling directions are sewn onto the edge of the blankets so you always have the directions when you need them. In the beginning this would be a huge help. I know I still have trouble remembering exactly how to swaddle and sometimes W was swaddle in a more unique manner. SwaddleDesigns provides a great page on “How to Swaddle” that is a wonderful resource. I also like the “The SwaddleDesigns Goldilocks Guide” which reminds parents that baby should not be too hot, or too cold, but just right ~ comfortably warm. The Goldilock’s Guide helps new parents remember the importance of keeping baby comfortably warm! It’s a great way to remember when your mind is full of all that newborn chaos!
The SwaddleDuo is available in 17 styles with MSRP of $38.
