I have heard nothing but great things about swaddling. According to moms in my realm of acquaintances – it makes the baby feel safer, it makes them feel more like they are still in the womb, and simply put – it makes the baby sleep better (who doesn’t want that?!). I was pleased to be able to receive a set of SwaddleLite blankets from Swaddle Designs, and I am hoping they work the miracles people speak of.
Swaddling with SwaddleLite from Swaddle Designs
The SwaddleLite blankets come with three marquisette swaddle blankets. They feature 100% cotton marquisette and are breathable, lightweight and super soft. We are adopting internationally and will spend some time with our new little one in a very hot climate. I am super excited about this light weight swaddle solution for our time there, but also realize with the 90 degrees and humidity we have in the Midwest US – we are set for both home and away.
When I received the blankets in the mail I decided to throw the hubby in head first on swaddling – why not make him look stupid instead of me if it is confusing to do. He was very happy to see that there are instruction tags ON the blankets. So you don’t have to keep some kind of instructions attached to your baby or the wall above their bed. I am so proud to announce – it was so much easier than we were thinking it would be! So, here is zebra baby, ready to go to sleep in his swaddle.
The SwaddleLite blankets come in pinks and blues and some more gender neutral colors (teals and yellows). They also have some fun branded designs with Disney It’s A Small World, Disney Mickey and Minnie and Angry Birds.
