One Year Blogversary Event: SwaddleDesigns - Swaddle Duo Review and Giveaway! - CLOSED!

When I was a new parent, I had no clue how to swaddle up my baby girl! Travis learned in the hospital and was a pro at swaddling Bella up like a little burrito and eventually I learned too! Swaddling was really important to us because it comforted our babies and helped us to get a little more sleep. We did not know about making our babies too hot when we swaddled though. Sometimes I would use two receiving blankets to help make sure she wouldn't wiggle free in the middle of the night. I'm sure that I was probably making her too hot (especially since she was born in August!)

I want to tell you about a great company that is helping to inform parents about swaddle safety! This company is called SwaddleDesigns and in addition to their awesome products, they have some great information on safe sleep for your baby and an article on how to swaddle - if you don't know how (like I didn't at first!)

I think that the Swaddle Duo is great - especially for first time parents! I love the fact that it comes with two different swaddle blankets for different climates. I also think that it's ingenious how each blanket is preprinted with an instructional tag! And don't forget “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. I think that SwaddleDesgins is a wonderful company that it working to educate parents on the importance of safe sleep for our babies and offers great products to help us swaddle safely and properly!


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.
