SwaddleDesigns Swaddle Duo Review

I am pretty in love with all my SwaddleDesigns products. And when I am in the mother's lounge at church full of mommy's and their nursing babies, everybody else seems to love SwaddleDesigns swaddle blankets, too. They are becoming quite the hit and more and more people are discovering their goodness and for good reason. They are awesome.I love hooded towels for my kids and since the one I got for my baby girl at Target got 2 holes in it after one wash, I was really looking for a hooded towel that would last, make my baby feel comfy and warm, and was as soft as she was. I received the SwaddleDesigns Organic Hooded Towel with Pastel Pink Mod Circles on Ivory. It was everything I was looking for and more. I have had the towel for nearly 4 months now and my 10 month old baby is still loving getting swaddled up in this goodness after every bath.

I also received a couple of SwaddleDesigns fabulous blankets. One of my favorite things about their swaddle blankets is that they include instructions on how to swaddle sewn right onto the blanket. So perfect for new mommies or for people like me who need to be reminded of the same instructions over and over again.
SwaddleDesigns recently introduced the Swaddle Duo which includes their Ultimate Receiving Blanket for moderate to cooler temperatures and the Marquisette Swaddling Blanket for warmer temperatures.
I learned some seriously great information about appropriate temperatures for our babies and how to prevent SIDS. I always knew overheating was a bad idea, but I hadn't heard about being too cold being just as dangerous. Please read:

“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.

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.
