All Blankets Are Not Equal
The first 3 months of an infant’s life are often referred to as “The Fourth Trimester.” This is the time in which a newborn adjusts to its new environment outside the womb. One way to help ease this transition is by swaddling, and I am thrilled to offer a terrific set by SwaddleDesigns as the next entry in #BabyGuyMotherLode.
SwaddleDesigns is a terrific company that is committed to safe sleep education and quality product, and this is further evidenced by a new bundle they’ve produced: the SwaddleDuo. The SwaddleDuo packages one of their perfect flannel swaddle blankets with their lighter-weight marquisette swaddle blanket. This provides caregivers with blanket thicknesses appropriate to the temperature of the environment they are in. It’s all about options, people!
Lynette Damir, founder of SwaddleDesigns, is a Registered Nurse—and one of my favorite people in the industry. She is dedicated to helping keep babies safe and informing parents of safe sleep habits. If you visit SwaddleDesigns.com, you will not only see their terrific products, but you’ll also find a wealth of information on swaddling techniques and the benefits of swaddling. A few of these benefits include:
- Swaddling reduces risk of SIDS because a swaddled baby cannot roll onto their stomach
- Swaddling helps babies sleep better because the Moro (startle) Reflex is minimized
- Because newborns cannot regulate their body temperature, swaddling helps them stay at the appropriate temperature—overheating AND overcooling are SIDS risks.
Another great feature of SwaddleDesigns blankets is the fact that swaddling instructions are sewn into a tag on the edge of the blanket—this helps caregivers swaddle correctly every time. SwaddleDesigns blankets are also extra-large, allowing for plenty of fabric for a proper swaddle—these are VERY different than standard receiving blankets. You and your little nugget will be very thankful you found these, trust me…..
SwaddleDesigns blankets vary in price and are available at various juvenile retailers, as well as SwaddleDesigns.com
