Swaddling has been proven to be an effective way to soothe your baby to sleep and comfort them when they’re having tummy troubles. Swaddling reduces the incidence of SIDS, sleep better, reduce colic and fussiness and can even make breastfeeding easier. I do have a confession. I did not swaddle Isabella. That is probably the reason why she didn’t sleep at night til she was 9 months old. She wasn’t necessarily a fussy baby, but she loved staying awake late at night. She must have gotten that trait from her momma, since I’m a major night owl myself. One reason why I didn’t swaddle was because I could NEVER get the blanket right. I was never taught how to properly swaddle, so I just guessed…and failed.
However, thanks to SwaddleDesigns, I now know how to swaddle an infant. This will come in handy when I decide to try to conceive and expect baby number two. Far…far in the future. As much as I have baby fever, I must wait til after I finish nursing school.
SwaddleDesigns recently introduced the Official Angry Birds Baby Collection! I can’t express how excited I am over this! I don’t know if y’all know this, but I play that game daily on my Kindle Fire. It’s extremely addictive and phenomenally popular! It has been downloaded OVER 600 million times! Isabella even likes to get in on the action, even though she doesn’t quite understand the concept of the game. Heck, I hardly do. All I know is that I toss birds with various abilities and powers to destroy some ugly green pig lookin’ dudes. Sometimes those tricky things aren’t easy to kill! But, this review is not about the game, it is about the ever so adorable collection.
For my review, I received the Short Sleeve Body Suit – 3 inch Blue Bird. This onesie is TOO cute! It features the blue bird that when you activate it, turns into three little blue birds. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen to me! I’d be fine with twins, but triplets?! Yikes.
The size I received was 6-12 months, which is obviously too small for my 2-year old. However, I know the perfect little boy (who isn’t due til August) to give this to! This body suit is quite soft, and the material is top notch quality. It is made with 100% cotton knit. The snaps are the best I’ve seen on a body suit. Most either won’t stay snapped or are hard to snap.
I also was sent their Marquisette Swaddling Blanket. SwaddleDesigns has the ONLY swaddling blankets that provide instructions sewn to the edge. It is made with 100% premium cottom marquisette. It is open weave, breathable and very light weight. Like the body suit, it is soft. This swaddling blanket is LARGE! It is 46″ x 46″. WOW!
Since I live in Memphis, TN, the temperature is rising more and more every day. That means if you have a summer baby, you need to keep that in mind when planning for him or her! The Angry Birds Marquisette Swaddling Blanket is perfect for warmer climates!
