Baby Shower Gift Guide Event ~ SwaddleDesigns Review & Giveaway

~BABY SHOWER GIFT GUIDE EVENT~ 

My son has been a VERY good baby for me. You know how they say that you become a more comfortable parent the more children that you have? Well, I think that is the case here. I have learned so much from the first two and now that number 3 is here, I am feeling like I finally know what I am doing. One thing that I have discovered recently is swaddling and the benefits that it has on babies. I have always known about swaddling but could not master it for the life of me and my babies could always wiggle out. Well, my doula who helped me with Isaac's birth, was talking to me about "The Happiest Baby On The Block" and the secrets that it held for calming newborns and infants. You know what one of the key elements to that method is? Yep...you guessed it! Swaddling! Babies love to be tightly bundled as it makes them feel secure and safe, just like it was when they were in their mommy's tummy. I was having to sleep in a recliner with Isaac because he loved to be held tightly and I could not mimic that feeling any other way-or so I thought. Then, my doula told me how to properly swaddle and voila! My son was sleeping on his own...for 4 hour stretches!!

If you are a parent of a newborn or know of someone who is a new parent, then you will enjoy this next company that I am going to introduce to you. SwaddleDesigns is a company that specializes in swaddling blankets for your baby, along with other great baby products!
Recently, SwaddleDesigns has partnered with Angry Birds to bring a collection of Angry Birds Baby items! Now, I am not a fan of Angry Birds myself but I know that they have grown in popularity and demand throughout the past several years. Here is a bit more about this new partnership!

SwaddleDesigns® is introducing the Angry Birds Baby Collection!

Angry Birds have found happiness with SwaddleDesigns baby products! We are honored that Rovio chose SwaddleDesigns to manufacture Angry Birds Baby items based on our high quality products.

Angry Birds by Rovio is a phenomenally popular game.  Angry Birds is the fastest growing brand in the world with over 600 million downloads.  Boys, girls, men, women, grandmas and grandpas – all love playing Angry Birds.  The game is entertaining to people of all ages, genders and geographies, and is fun for family members to play together during snuggle time

SwaddleDesigns was founded by Lynette Damir, RN, Designer and Mom in 2002, and 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 blankets come in a variety of weights and are perfect for many uses such as a privacy throw for breastfeeding moms, a tummy time play mat, a cover over the stroller as well as swaddling. 

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 high quality cotton blanket – for warmer environmental temperatures

Angry Birds is just one of the many collections SwaddleDesigns offers. We have many new exciting new prints and a variety of blankets and other products for 2012!
For this review, I was sent an Angry Birds Baby Bodysuit and a Marquisette Swaddling Blanket, also in the Angry Birds design.
Being that I am so new to swaddling, one of my greatest complaints is that most blankets are way too small to properly swaddle. It seems that I run out of blanket before the swaddle is completely done...which is frustrating. This is why I LOVE the  Marquisette Swaddling Blanket from SwaddleDesigns. This blanket is H*U*G*E. There is more than enough to go around Isaac and he is snug as a bug in a rug. The fabric is also really light, soft and a bit stretchy. When swaddling, I tend to prefer a stretchier blanket so this blanket is perfect.
The Angry Birds Bodysuit that I was sent is too big for Isaac right now, but it is cute! I love the blue trim on it...especially because I have a baby boy. On SwaddleDesigns website, you can choose other colors and designs as well so that is nice.
All of the Angry Birds Baby products are well made and would make wonderful gifts...especially for a baby shower! You can mix and match the other designs as well or you can pick out a gift set that includes multiple products.
SwaddleDesigns exclusive 123 Swaddle tip tag helps babies sleep better.
One of the other things that I love about SwaddleDesigns blankets is that they have a sewn-on tag that has pictures and instructions on how to swaddle your baby properly and effectively. This is great...especially for those late-night swaddling sessions when you are groggy and your brain is not functioning clearly.

So, in my opinion...SwaddleDesigns is a wonderful company! I think that they are a fantastic resource for parents...both for educating on how to swaddle and also for purchasing the perfect swaddling blanket. Each product is made with you and your baby in mind so when you get a chance, check them out and see just how easy they can make your life as a parent!
SwaddleDesigns has offered to give one winner their choice of bodysuit size and bird OR marquisette blanket! This giveaway is also open to US & Canadian citizens. Here are your entry options! :)
