SwaddleDesigns-Swaddle 101 And A Giveaway!!!





Swaddling 101. No textbook required. It's all on the tag! New moms and dads will appreciate the simplicity of these adorable blankets and you can bet they will be relieved when they discover instructions on the tag. Often, new parents are intimidated by swaddling or they need a tutorial their first few times! SwaddleDesigns takes the guesswork out of swaddling. Follow the guide on the tag and you and baby are good to go! Swaddled babies are happy babies!
The ultimate in soft comfort, your new addition will love these blankets. We received The Ultimate Receiving Blanket and I wanted to wrap up in it myself! A generous 42"x42" square, you don't need to worry about wriggly babies wriggling loose! The fine details set these wraps apart from all the rest. The premium preshrunk cotton flannel is as good as it gets. For those of us in the deep south, SwaddleDesigns has a not so hot (but ohhhh so great!) flannel alternative! The Marquisette Swaddling Blanket is made from 100% cotton Marquisette. I heard that it was softer than muslin, but I'll admit that I was doubtful. As soon as I pulled this blanket from the package, I was in love. With muslin, you wash and wash...and wash and wash. It gets softer each time. But this lightweight, ultra soft, open weave blanket was softer than my oldest muslin blanket. And that is before the first wash!

I am a big fan of wearable blankets for babies. I was delighted to find a beautiful selection of baby sleep bags! These zzZipMe Sacks are available in two sizes. After your baby grows out of the swaddle, consider one of these safe alternatives to blankets. Your baby will stay nice and warm. There are no blankets to kick off, no blankets to restrict breathing. Since my house stays cool at night, I can use these year round. Late night diaper changes are easy thanks to the quick zip opening! I use a tee under mine! Use discount code "MadeinUSA" at checkout to save an extra 10%! And be sure to follow SwaddleDesigns on Facebook and Twitter!

You can win your very own Marquisette Blanket! Visit SwaddleDesigns and tell me which print is your favorite! Leave a comment and let me know! Follow me for an extra entry, just be sure to let me know in a second comment! Giveaway ends midnight June 30! Winner will be drawn using random.org. US residents only!
