Swaddle Designs is introducing a NEW print called Elephant and Chickies! We got to review the Ultimate Receiving Blanket - Elephant and Blushing Rose Chickies. I really love this cute, soft, big swaddle blanket! It's quite bigger and a little heavier than regular, smaller receiving blankets created by other companies. Hailey and Chloe love it too. I think that Chloe is going to end up stealing it.
When our son was born in 2007, I had to have the nurse show me how to swaddle him probably about three times, before I understood how to do it. Back then, they wrapped the babies up so tight that trying to wake Matthew up to nurse was a huge ordeal. He was so warm and comfy, he didn't want to wake up to nurse. Little did I know, I should have let him sleep, at least up to four to six hours. I was told to wake him up every two hours to nurse. I decided to wake him up every three hours, and this did not make him very happy at all. But, we live and learn. Since then, we have learned that it's not good to swaddle our babies too tightly because it can cause damage to their hips. So make sure your doing it right!
There are easy to follow swaddling instructions sewn on the edge of the blanket. Swaddle Designs swaddling blankets were designed by a nurse and they have won multiple awards. Swaddle Designs products are also all made in the U.S.A.
I swaddled Hailey to show you just how big this blanket is! She is 8 months old now and wearing 12 month clothing. This blanket is perfect for swaddling her! Especially when she's not feeling well or nothing makes her happy, swaddling her still works!
Benefits of Swaddling:
- Decreases Risk of SIDS
- Swaddled Babies Sleep Better
- Reduces Colic and Fussiness
- Helpful When Breastfeeding
