SwaddleDesigns Review and Giveaway!



Have you heard of SwaddleDesigns?

"Lynette Damir, RN, CEO and Creative Director, founded SwaddleDesigns in 2002 with her husband, Jeff. The inspiration for SwaddleDesigns was sparked when Lynette visited families with new babies in their homes and she noticed they struggled with swaddling for two reasons. First, the blanket they were using was too small or too thick, and second, they could not remember how to make a good secure swaddle. The parents consistently asked her to share the secret of the hospital nurses - how to swaddle.
Lynette used her medical background and design education from the Art Institute of Seattle to develop the Ultimate Swaddling Blanket - large and square with swaddling instructions sewn to the edge of the blanket, so parents have an effective swaddling technique at their fingertips (patent pending). SwaddleDesigns first customer was a major hospital that purchased 4,000 blankets! They understood the importance of swaddling and the educational value of Lynette‛s blanket.
Swaddling is important because it helps babies transition from womb to world, reduces incidence of SIDS, helps babies sleep better and longer, and decreases awakenings due to the startle reflex. By helping parents master the art of swaddling, the Ultimate Swaddling Blanket is a great confidence builder for new parents.
Over the past several years, SwaddleDesigns product line has grown significantly. Lynette designs all of SwaddleDesigns products and exclusive prints, and she selects every component based on its color, texture, durability and quality. She designs with baby‛s best interest in mind and to help new parents.
"

SwaddleDesigns is proud to announce their Safe Sleep Program as they strive to help educate parents and caregivers using the most recent information and research to increase awareness of Safe Sleep practices and help parents reduce risk of SIDS.

The SwaddleDesigns Goldilocks Guide also states that baby should be dressed appropriately for the current temperature of their environment - not too hot, not too cold, but comfortably warm.

SwaddleDesigns is best known for their Ultimate Receiving Blanket® which is much larger than typical receiving blankets and square in shape - and it is the only blanket with swaddling instructions sewn to its edge (patent pending).


They are offered in two types of fabric for swaddling: Flannel and Marquisette.

·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 temperatures.

·They also offer a very lightweight open weave cotton Marquisette Swaddling Blanket® which is appropriate for warmer climates or summer swaddling. Cotton marquisette is the highest quality open weave fabric due to its high quality threads and thread count

They also have lots of other great products. They sent me one of their Stroller Blankets to review! When it arrived I was very impressed! It was packaged nice and pretty (I tried to get a picture, but Jack got a hold of it first...) and was super soft! And Jack loves it. He actually sleeps with it at night now. =) It isn't too heavy, but is nice and warm.



SwaddleDesigns has graciously offered one lucky reader an Ultimate Receiving Blanket!
