SwaddleDesigns Review and Giveaway: Win a Swaddle Duo

Many of you all may remember this great sponsor. If you want to refresh your memory you may read about them here on my blog. Swaddling is something that is very comforting to our little babies but does not always come natural. The great thing is that SwaddleDesigns helps you to swaddle your baby in a manner that is comforting to both of you. SwaddleDesigns has been  focused on offering stylish, innovative, modern and quality baby products since 2002. SwaddleDesigns is headed up by Lynette Damir a RN
who noticed that many families struggled with swaddling their young babies. As the CEO and designer Lynette wanted to create  a product that would help the swaddling process easier for new mothers. My first child brought many fears to me but the nurses were so wonderful that I will always be thankful to them. I am sure that mothers are thankful to Lynette for teaching them the technique to easily swaddle their newborns.
SwaddleDesigns is known for their premium quality fabric, fabulous colors and prints, decorative edge, and the innovative 123 Swaddle® instructional label that helps new parents master the art of swaddling. SwaddleDesigns swaddling blankets are perfect for swaddling and have many uses such as a privacy throw for breastfeeding moms, a tummy time play mat and a cover over the stroller.


The Swaddle Duo from SwaddleDesigns offers two premium, yet different, baby soft cotton swaddling blankets. The Ultimate Receiving blanket is a lightweight premium cotton flannel that is perfect for moderate to cooler environmental temperatures. This would be perfect in the winter time here where I live or in the hot summer with the air conditioners running to keep us cool but may seem a bit cold to our babies. The second blanket is the Marquisette Swaddling blanket that is a very lightweight open weave cotton blanket for warmer environmental temperatures. The duo of blankets will prepare the parents for a variety of environmental temperatures - cool, moderate or warm. The generous size and optimum shape for swaddling makes the duo a want for all mothers. 

Babies can easily get overheated or over chilled easily the SwaddlingDuo can help you keep your baby comfortable. Studies have shown that both overheating and overchilling increase the risk of SIDS as stated in the International Journal of Epidemiology 1996. SwaddleDesigns Goldilocks Guide™ ~ baby should not be too hot, or too cold, but just right ~ comfortably warm.”  You can read more about keeping baby comfortable and temperature control on the SwaddleDesigns Temperature Awareness
SwaddleDesigns strives to help new parents care for their baby by providing accurate and up-to-date information, so parents can may make informed choices. SwaddleDesigns Safe Sleep Program includes recommendations from the AAP and the NIH as the company strives to increase awareness of Safe Sleep practices and help parents reduce risk of SIDS. You can learn more about how to swaddle your baby as well as other great tips to help your baby on the SwaddleDesigns website here

According to leading SIDS researchers, both overheating AND over chilling are risk factors for SIDS. In addition, it’s important for parents to understand that when baby is too cool during sleep, baby will use valuable energy to stay warm instead of growing and thriving. Over the past few years some juvenile product companies have over focused on overheating as a SIDS risk factor, and there has been a lack of balanced conversation regarding insufficient thermal insulation – the danger of baby being too cool - as a risk factor for SIDS. It is time for a balanced information where parents are educated and reminded of their important responsibility to make sure baby is not too hot or too cold, but comfortably warm.

The swaddleDesigns Cotton Marquisette is similar to muslin but is made from premium quality yarns and the SwaddleDesigns Cotton Flannel is made from premium preshrunk domestic cotton. The SwaddleDuo is available in 17 styles with suggested retail price of $38 http://www.swaddledesigns.com/c/Swaddle-Duo/SD00
