want to give new meaning to the saying "snug as a bug in a rug?" look no further. recently I was sent a sample of a Baby Bonkie Swaddle blanket, and I can not get over how amazing these things are!!
upon having our first baby, I remember everyone (nurses, websites, baby books, friends...literally everyone) stressing the importance of swaddling. swaddled babies feel the continuous warmth and security felt in the womb and according to Dr. Karp, author of "The Happiest Baby on the Block," 'Snug wrapping is the cornerstone of calming, the essential first step in pacifying fussy babies.' after each of our babies was examined following delivery, she was tightly swaddled and handed to us. the swaddling prevents those incredibly cute flailing arm/jerky newborn movements that startle and awaken our babes helping them sleep longer and sounder.
the only reason I can see for not swaddling is the challenge that comes with creating the perfect swaddle! but now it is literally as easy as 1-2-3...
Place the Babybonkie on a flat surface. Lay your baby so that his/her legs are in the enclosed circular bottom portion.Step 2:
Starting with left flap, fold over and fasten with Velcro tabs.Step 3:
Now fold right flap and fasten with Velcro tabs.
seriously. but perhaps more importantly than the ease is the GORGEOUSENESS that is the fabric. my favorites are the light green toile and the yellow bird pattern. (so stinking cutie!!) soooooooo, here goes...
