Congratulations, Amy P!
I’m a huge believer in the benefits of swaddling. There have been numerous studies that says swaddling contributes to more restful sleep. SwaddleDesigns is known for their amazing Ultimate Receiving Blanket® which I was able to try out for myself! It’s much larger than typical receiving blankets and it’s square in shape. It also has these wonderful little swaddling instructions sewn to its edge and I believe they are the only company to do so. I love that I can have instructions right at my fingertips, this is perfect for new moms or experienced moms who are too exhausted to think.
Flannel is the #1 Choice in US hospitals for swaddling babies, because it is thin, lightweight, breathable, and not too thick. The Ultimate Receiving Blanket® that I received was made of flannel. SwaddleDesigns also offers a very lightweight open weave Marquisette Swaddling Blanket® which is appropriate for warmer climates. It’s composed of finer threads and a finer thread count.
The Ultimate Receiving Blanket is not only great as a swaddling blanket but is also great for tummy time and as a stroller blanket. Swaddle Designs has many other adorable and chic products including Swaddling Blankets, zzZipMe Sacks, Lovies, Stroller Blankets, Burp Cloths & Bibs, Baby Apparel, Towels & WashCloths, Gift Sets, Crib Sheets, and even Adult Swaddle Wraps!
Want to win an Ultimate Receiving Blanket of your choice? I’ll warn you, there are so many beautiful options to choose from that you may be there a while.
Open to US & Canadian residents.
