Shake, Rattle, & Roll *Sponsor Spotlight* Swaddle Designs, Baby Package

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.

SwaddleDesigns® is introducing the Angry Birds Baby Collection!

Angry Birds have found happiness with SwaddleDesigns baby products! We are honored that Rovio chose SwaddleDesigns to manufacture Angry Birds Baby items based on our high quality products.

Angry Birds by Rovio is a phenomenally popular game.  Angry Birds is the fastest growing brand in the world with over 600 million downloads.  Boys, girls, men, women, grandmas and grandpas – all love playing Angry Birds.  The game is entertaining to people of all ages, genders and geographies.  

Angry Birds is just one of the many collections SwaddleDesigns offers. We have many new exciting new prints and a variety of blankets and other products for 2012! 

I was excited when Swaddle Designs contacted me with interest in working together again. My husband loves Angry Birds so I couldn't help but chuckle when they asked me to do a review of the Angry Birds line of products! 

I was sent an Angry Birds swaddling blanket and short sleeve red bird body suit to review. With some confusion, I was also sent the short sleeve blue bird body suit in a bigger size that Macyn will have to grow in to. You can click HERE to see my review of their blankets! They also have a "How to Swaddle" section on their website that is beneficial for the best sleeping habits for baby!

I like these body suits a lot! They're made of 100% cotton, with a great picture of the bird in the middle and a nice thick outline of the same color for the sleeves, neck, and bottom of the body suit. The red is nice and bold, with such a rich color, while the blue is nice and soft but still bold in its own right. The body suits are light weight and very breathable which is great for Spring and especially Summer! Hot, humid days, baby can just wear the body suit and be comfortable and cute at the same time!

Swaddle Designs carries multiple items for Angry Birds, so everyone is likely to find something they like!

They sell Angry Birds short and long sleeve body suits, swaddling blankets, burp cloths, mini blanket "lovies", and even sleep sacks!

These body suits retail for $15.00

They also now carry this awesome body suit for $20
