Swaddle Designs: The Baby Blanket Moms Really Want

I received product in exchange for this post. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
When I first found out we were expecting a baby I for some reason couldn't imagine having a girl. I really just assumed it would be a boy. Don't ask me why it was just stuck in my head that I would have two boys. After suffering through the pain of infertility I would never feel anything but blessed at being able to have a second child no matter what the sex. However...I have to admit when I learned we were in fact having a girl, I allowed myself to go a little pink crazy. It took a while but I learned to forgive myself for daydreaming about tea parties, lace and ruffles. I was going to have a daughter. When preparing for her arrival we received the most darling blanket from Swaddle Designs, it of course had to be pink!

While we were waiting for our little miss to arrive the Booper helped me practice the swaddle technique using one of my old dolls. Swaddling your baby is known to help baby stay asleep by stopping the startle reflex. I felt like my swaddling wasn't working well and it was too loose, but I watched this video below and realized I wasn't tucking up over the shoulder like she does. After a little practice I was confident in my swaddling skills. 

The Ultimate Swaddle Blanket comes in a huge variety of designs and I'm in love with the pattern I chose. I've found so many great uses for my Swaddle Designs blanket and one of my favorites is to use it as a breastfeeding cover. Even at home there are times I pull a baby blanket over myself and baby girl just to keep warm and to give us that cuddle closeness.
Our little miss loves to feel secure, but now that she's a little older she prefers her hands to be out. Being so lightweight the Swaddle Designs cotton flannel blanket will work well no matter the season. With a price point of $25 the Swaddle Designs blanket is a great gift idea for any new mom!
