SwaddleDesigns SwaddleDuo Review and Giveaway...

                                               

We recently had the chance to review a SwaddleDuo from SwaddleDesigns.
About SwaddleDuo:
"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.

Important info for new parents can be found in the “The SwaddleDesigns Goldilocks Guide™ ~ 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 can 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.
Learn the basics of swaddling with the “How to Swaddle” video.
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."

What we thought:
This blanket combo was great!  I really wish we would have had them when my kiddos were tiny.  They always squirmed out of every blanket we tried to swaddle them in.  These blankets are very versatile, easy to use, and super soft and stylish.  They will keep your baby covered (literally:) no matter what the season is.  My favorite feature is the tag that has step-by-step swaddling instructions…super important for new parentsJ  SwaddleDesigns makes excellent must-have products and the new SwaddleDuo is no exception.  This would make an awesome shower gift for the expectant mother in your lifeJ  ABCD Diaries gives the SwaddleDuo blanket set from SwaddleDesigns an A+!
