When preparing for a new baby, there is a whole lot to consider when making a list. There are so many items you need to make sure you get so that your baby has everything they need. It is best to complete your list and make sure you have everything before baby gets here. That way you can enjoy your new baby without thinking of what you might still need. One of my top items on my baby list is receiving blankets. I know that at the baby shower you end up with a couple of blankets, but I know that you can end up going through several blankets in a 24 hour period! There are many uses for receiving blankets. One of the top uses is for swaddling your baby. Swaddling the baby provides warmth and comfort for your baby. I also use receiving blankets for a burp cloth and for changing the baby on. Even with just using a receiving blanket for swaddling the baby, you can still get messes on it. So having a decent stock in receiving blankets is a must for me! One brand that I just love is SwaddleDesigns!! I was sent a pack of the SwaddleDuo for review. I love how soft and light weight these receiving blankets are! These are perfect for keeping baby comfortable in cool and warm weather!
SwaddleDesigns is introducing the SwaddleDuo
SwaddleDuo offers two premium, yet different, baby soft cotton swaddling blankets – two swaddle blankets in a wonderful gift box:
· The Ultimate Receiving Blanket® is a lightweight premium cotton flannel blanket – for moderate to cooler environmental temperatures
· The Marquisette Swaddling Blanket® is a very lightweight openweave cotton blanket – for warmer environmental temperatures
With the SwaddleDuo, parents will be prepared for a variety of environmental settings – cool, moderate and warm
SwaddleDesigns Cotton Marquisette is similar to muslin but is made from premium quality yarns.
SwaddleDesigns Cotton Flannel is made from premium preshrunk domestic cotton.
“The SwaddleDesigns Goldilocks Guid ~ baby should not be too hot, or too cold, but just right ~ comfortably warm.” The Goldilock’s Guide helps new parents remember the importance of keeping baby comfortably warm.
SwaddleDesigns strives to help new parents care for their baby by providing accurate and up-to-date information, so parents 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.
According to leading SIDS researchers, both overheating AND overchilling 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.
Founded by Lynette Damir, RN, in 2002, SwaddleDesigns was the first company to introduce the large square swaddling blanket to the US and many countries around the world. 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.
