Baby Shower: SwaddleDesigns Review & {GIVEAWAY!!}


SwaddleDesigns offers some incredible products. Everything looks so luxurious, thoughtful, and comfortable. I saw several things I actually wish were adult sized so that I could snuggle up in comfort and softness. Of course, I have those same desires for my new baby. I want to spoil her with anything that makes transitioning to being outside of the womb a pleasure. Check out a few things that I am now considering as must-haves:
I love their pretty hooded towels.
Their wearable blankets are perfect for your baby when he/she has outgrown being swaddled.
I received the Ultimate Receiving Blanket for review. I have mentioned before how I was absolutely horrible at swaddling my son. I could never remember how do it right, the baby blanket wasn't big enough, or he would find a way out. My attempts at swaddling him only lasted a couple of weeks before both him and I were frustrated and over it. However, I am determined to make it work with my daughter. I feel swaddling is very important and healthy for a new baby who is trying to adapt to their new world. I don't think I had the right tools with my son, but I am positive this swaddling blanket will make swaddling a breeze.
Their receiving blankets include sewn on instructions of how to do the perfect swaddle. If ever you forget, you can refer right to your blanket. So smart!
My favorite part of the Ultimate Receiving Blanket is how giant it is! Not only does this make swaddling easier, it makes it possible to swaddle longer. You can also use this blanket as a nursing cover, tummy time mat, sun shield, and more.
I also received this gorgeous Stroller Blanket in Pink Puff Circles. I am so crazy about this blanket. I have already decided that this will be my daughter's main blanket, you know, the one she always has to have. It is so soft and the trim is so silky. It is the perfect size to tuck your baby in her stroller or wrap her into dreamland comfort. I washed the blanket and to my surprise, it remained cushy and as if it had never been washed. I already packed both of these blankets into my hospital bag so that my baby will be so cozy. Serious must-haves! Use the code 'MadeinUSA' to receive 10% off any regular priced items.

WIN IT!!
SwaddleDesigns has generously offered one of our lucky readers a stroller blanket.
