One day, I came across Swaddle Designs
and saw that they had a lot of great products for baby such as swaddles, zip up blanket sacks, burpies, bibs and more. They have a lot of really cute and adorable things for baby. I was given the opportunity to work with Swaddle Designs
on a review and was sent one of their newest additions, the Triplets Paisleys Ultimate Receiving Blanket
for our use and review. The Triplets Paisleys come in the same design, which is so cute by the way, and they come in two colors. You can buy it in Kiwi
Since our little guy is obviously a boy, we were sent the Triplets Paisleys Kiwi
. The design is so cute and has different shades of a beautiful green color with a touch of light blue. It is 40% larger than your typical receiving blanket making it very useful for things other than swaddling. It is by far better than a regular receiving blanket for swaddling too since it is a lot larger. It’s a 42 inch blanket and I just love the trim on it! It’s made of cotton flannel and is lightweight and very breathable for baby. The fabric is really soft too and it doesn’t lose it’s softness after being washed and ours doesn’t even look like it had shrunk at all.
Another thing that is so great about it is that it has swaddling directions with illustrations on the tag making it so easy to swaddle baby. This comes in handy for any brand new parents who have never swaddled a baby before. There are many uses for it too. Like I said, it doesn’t have to be used only for swaddling. It’s large enough to use as a blanket for tummy time, makes a great cover for breastfeeding, and also makes a wonderful sunshade to throw over a stroller or cover an infant carrier car seat. Below are a couple pictures with our little guy on the floor to give an idea of just how big it is.
Our little guy finally did get out of the swaddling stage. He was pretty late getting out of it so when we received it, we had only used it once or twice for that purpose. Even though we have only used it a couple times that way, I still think it makes a wonderful swaddle. My brother finally stopped by with my new nephew (only about a month old) and I had shown him and his girlfriend the benefit of swaddling. They are brand new parents and like a lot of new parents (we were the same way with our first) they didn’t know the purpose or the benefit of swaddling. He’s a crier and as soon as he was swaddled, they were surprised that he immediately quieted down. He went right to sleep and slept like – well, a baby!
I use it all the time for tummy time and I also take it everywhere we go because our little guy is always in his stroller instead of cart when we are shopping. He’s like a little vampire baby – that’s what daddy calls him because he doesn’t like the sun at all. We use it all the time to cover the stroller and it also does really well against the wind on windy days.
We love it since we can use it in so many ways. Plus the fact that it is so adorable and I can’t believe how soft it is! The other thing that I love about it is that little man doesn’t slide on it either when he is on his belly. He tries to get his knees up and when he is putting weight on his hands, they don’t slide out from under him like they have with other blankets we have used on the floor.
The product was sent to me for free by the company for my use and review. I was not paid to write my review and my opinions are 100% my own.
