I love Swaddle Designs and when I was asked to write a post about the launch of their new SwaddleClub and to review their Swaddle Designs Muslin Cotton Swaddle Blankets, I of course jumped on board. I was sent a 4-pack of their Swaddle Designs Muslin Cotton Swaddles for free in exchange for my review/blog post.
Swaddle Designs has been on a mission to help new parents with calming and comforting their baby and helping to provide information about swaddling. They even include 1-2-3 tags on all their swaddling and receiving blankets that illustrate how to swaddle baby. I have always found this to be unique and very helpful. I have used their Ultimate Receiving Blankets when my kids were babies and I found that it made swaddling so much easier. Their swaddling blankets and receiving blankets are rather large too making swaddling that much easier. Plus they are large enough to use as a play area on the floor, stroller cover, privacy cover, etc.
Before I get into my product review, I want to talk about the SwaddleClub first. Swaddle Designs has partnered with Dr. Harvey Karp who is the creator of “The Happiest Baby on the Block” and developed the SwaddleClub. The SwaddleClub offers information and tips to new parents right at their fingertips by using their smartphone or computer. Included in the app features soothing white noise sounds to help baby sleep or calm, tips, how to swaddle, and short baby care videos. I have checked it out myself and also passed it along to a friend of mine who is now a new mom. She found the SwaddleClub to be very helpful especially when it comes to calming her baby because we all know how exhausting it can be when it comes to being sleep deprived!
The SwaddleClub is easy to access by using the QR label on the tag right next to the Swaddle 1-2-3 tag on the swaddle blanket. SwaddleClub is also a free service and when you join, you will also receive a promo code to save 25% when you shop at SwaddleDesigns.com. Use the following link to learn more about the SwaddleClub.
The Muslin Cotton Swaddle Blankets are made with premium cotton yarns and are prewashed for softness. They even get softer with every wash. And the fabric never diminishes or looks worn out after washing, they remain looking and feeling great. Since I don’t have a tiny baby, I gave the 4 pack of swaddle blankets I received to my friend so she helped me with my review. So all opinions are either my own opinions or hers because I have used them before myself in the past. First I have to say that I love the size of them. So does my friend. As I stated earlier, not only are they great for swaddling and so easy to use for swaddling because of their size, they also work great as a play area on the floor, stroller cover and more.
The set that I received was the “Ships Ahoy!” design/print. They are absolutely adorable! One is a solid white, another with light blue dots, the third with little sailboats and the last one with little blue anchors and ship wheels. We love the feel of them. Really soft. One of the best things about them is that they are so breathable. This is a very good thing especially since now it is getting warmer and she doesn’t have to worry about her little guy overheating. She always swaddles her precious bundle but since the weather has been warmer, she has only been using these. She says he never gets too hot or overheats which is a big deal for safe sleep. It’s the one thing that can be a struggle because swaddling is so helpful and calming but then you have to worry about baby getting too hot while sleeping. There isn’t any problem with the Swaddle Designs Muslin Swaddles. She and I both can honestly say that.
They are very durable and the way that they are woven makes swaddling work really well. Along with the generous size (46 x 46 inches), the way they are made and the cotton muslin, the blanket doesn’t come loose as easily as most typical receiving blankets do. Being that they are a perfect square is also a big help. Another thing that is great about them is that they really don’t shrink in the wash either. I don’t ever remember having that problem and my friend told me she never has that problem either after she washes them. She absolutely loves them and we both highly recommend them!
