"Founded by Lynette Damir, RN, in 2002, 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 swaddling blankets are perfect for swaddling and have many uses such as a privacy throw for breastfeeding moms, a tummy time play mat and a cover over the stroller. "
"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. "

Our Opinion: We received the Swaddle Duo to review. It includes 1 Cotton Flannel for moderate to cooler climates and 1 Cotton Marquisette open weave for warmer climates. The blankets are 100% Premium Cotton making it very soft and comfy. When I had my oldest I honestly did not know that children should be dressed the same as an adult would dress, ha no one ever told me. Miss M was always getting heat rashes and I took her to the doctor. Finally about the third time my doc told me I was overdressing her and she was getting to hot. I never made that mistake again. I can tell you she fussed less and seemed to sleep much better when she wasn't hot. I think this is very important for all parents to know! Thanks to the new Swaddle Duo it helps you and your child. SwaddleDesigns offer 17 styles of the Swaddle Duo and they are very affordable, priced at $38.
A huge Thank you to SwaddleDesigns who has offered (1) of my readers their very own Swaddle Duo.
