Swaddle Designs Review & Giveaway 3/23

Lynette Damir, RN, CEO and Creative Director, founded SwaddleDesigns in 2002. 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.

Supine 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.

Swaddle Designs blankets are so soft!! Soft things with a baby for me are a must! They're really big, which means they're great for any size baby, and with the easy instructions on every blanket, it's simple to make sure they're swaddled correctly every time. My husband even swaddled her yesterday :)

The nice thing about the Swaddle Duo set is the cotton flannel blanket for cool to moderate temperatures and cotton marquisette open weave for warmer climates, which means your baby can be comfortable in the changing weather and you have two great options to help with that.

The Swaddle Duo comes in 33 designs and retails for $38.00
