I think that preparing for a baby can be so much fun. Most have plenty of time to get the items they need and create a registry, but there are still some who are kinda thrown into the whole thing a lot faster. I had always heard of those moms, who found out they were pregnant late in the pregnancy or end up delivering, never knowing that they were pregnant to start out with, but until a couple of months ago, I had not seen it first hand. I have a friend, who delivered a baby a few weeks ago, she found out that she was pregnant, told she had a few months and also had no idea what she would be having due to the lateness in her pregnancy. Well, not only was the pregnancy a surprise and the gestation she was at, but the doctor was off by a month for delivery, so instead of a couple of months to prepare, she and her husband only had about a month. Baby came a lot earlier than expected, but healthy none the less. So, we had planned a somewhat last minute online baby shower, but instead of it going off later this month before her expected due date, we had it earlier and with the baby as the special guest. For me, I have always had time to prepare and get the needed items together, but with baby already here and hardly any preparing done for babies arrival, we all jumped in and took on the planning head on! One thing that I see as a must have for any parent is a swaddler, and for me having many on hand is ideal. Well to help with the preparations of this baby shower, we were sent some great items from Summer Infant and Born Free. From Summer Infant we were sent the Summer Infant SwaddleMe WrapSack.
With the SwaddleMe WrapSack, you can get the best of both. From the comfort and warmth that baby gets from a blanket, to the sense of security and comfort that baby gets from a secured swaddle! I know that baby will be able to appreciate that she can either sleep in a full swaddle with both arms secured in the wrap, or a partial swaddle, with both arms out or one arm out, which ever way baby feels comfortable with. For me, using SwaddleMe products from Summer Infant have helped not only avoid any loose blankets when baby is sleeping but also help baby sleep better in a swaddle! Another thing that both mommy and baby can appreciate is that the WrapSack grows with baby, allowing baby to eventually learn to sleep without a swaddle! We found the design on the SwaddleMe WrapSack that we were sent to be very adorable and be perfect for the new baby girl! Aside from the must have SwaddleMe WrapSack that we were sent from Summer Infant, we were also sent another must have item from Born Free! We were sent the Tru-Temp Bottle Warming System.
I have learned that having a bottle warmer is essential when preparing for a baby, and that it is a item that I add right away to my registries and that I also look for when going to baby showers. So when we were sent the Born Free Tru-Temp Bottle Warming System to review, I knew that it would make for a perfect baby shower gift for the surprise baby! I know that I and other moms can appreciate that this system gently warms both breast milk and formula for baby. With the insulated cooler, you can keep up to 2 bottles cool for up to 8 hours, and can be a optimal feature for night feedings, which anything that can assist a parent with a baby during feedings, can be a true time saver and sleep saver! I know that even with seasoned parents, trying to use gadgets that are supposed to be time saving, can be a hassle to try and figure out, like when trying to select the right temp for different bottle amounts. Well with this bottle warming system, the dial is very easy to use, so all you have to do is choose the bottle size, then it will warm it to the temperature needed. For the time saving aspects, aside from the removable insulated cooler, you also have the fact that it only takes about 3 minutes to warm a 5oz bottle, which at night, that time saved means a little more time for resting for parents and baby. Lastly, when it comes to style, this warmer can coordinate with those stainless steel looking products in your kitchen, which is a added plus! In all, I found the Born Free Tru-Temp Bottle Warming System to be ideal for anyone with a baby in the home! Well, to help my readers out with their own baby needs, the wonderful people from Summer Infant and Born Free would like to give one of my amazing readers a Baby Shower Prize Pack that will include the Summer Infant SwaddleMe WrapSack and a Born Free Tru-Temp Bottle Warming System!!
