The Swaddle Blanket Made to Perfection

SwaddleDesignsLynette Damir, RN, CEO and Creative Director, founded SwaddleDesigns in 2002 with her husband, Jeff.  When their first signature product, the Ultimate Swaddling Blanket, was introduced in 2003, it quickly became a best seller at top boutiques and retailers around the United States and internationally.  As their line has grown since then, SwaddleDesigns now offers a variety of products like zzZipMe Sack™ wearable blankets, security blankets, stroller blankets, burp cloths and bibs, baby apparel, hooded towels and washcloths, baby bedding, and more in exclusive prints and fabrics.  Lynette still designs all of the products and prints and selects every component based on its color, texture, durability and quality while keeping the baby’s best interest in mind to help new parents. SwaddleDesigns is recommended by doctors, nurses, doulas, parent educators, and has a loyal, enthusiastic following of moms and celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Marcia Cross, and Angelina Jolie.

SwaddleDesignsThe inspiration for SwaddleDesigns was sparked when Lynette visited families with new babies in their homes and noticed they struggled with swaddling for two reasons. First, the blanket they were using was too small or too thick, and second, they could not remember how to make a good secure swaddle. The parents consistently asked her to share the secret of the hospital nurses - how to swaddle.  Lynette used her medical background and design education from the Art Institute of Seattle to develop the Ultimate Swaddling Blanket - large and square with swaddling instructions sewn to the edge of the blanket, so parents have an effective swaddling technique at their fingertips (patent pending).  SwaddleDesigns first customer was a major hospital that purchased 4,000 blankets as they understood the importance of swaddling and educational value of such a blanket. 

SwaddleDesignsOur Editor’s Pick is the Organic Ultimate Receiving Blanket in Kiwi Mod Circles on Ivory.  Made of the softest organic cotton flannel with GOTS certification, this blanket is a 42 inch square with a signature green weave trim.  This is the optimum size and shape for swaddling and much more as it is also a great sunshield, nursing cover, and playmate for tummy time.  The refreshing kiwi green circles on ivory with the green trim is captivating and perfect for both a boy or girl.  This blanket comes with the signature easy to follow swaddling instructions sewn on the edge so that parents are always reminded of how to best comfort their child.  This is a favorite for new parents and celebrities and is a great gift that will be used and treasured for many years.  Swaddling is vital as it helps babies transition from the womb to world, reducing incidence of SIDS, helping babies sleep better and longer, and decreasing awakenings due to their startle reflex. By helping parents master the art of swaddling, the Ultimate Swaddling Blanket is a great confidence builder for new parents.  This cotton flannel features beautiful designer colors and prints, and is lightweight, preshrunk, and allows air to flow naturally which reduces risk of overheating.

SwaddleDesigns is a trusted brand that new and experienced parents love for the quality, style, affordability, longevity, and educational value. Their customers appreciate that the multi-use blanket can be used for more than just swaddling.  Moms enjoy SwaddleDesigns line which offers a wonderful assortment of mixing and matching collections and coordinates with any nursery or parent‛s personal style. Lynette shares, “with over 1 million products sold, we delight in the thousands of testimonials from Swaddle Fans sharing SwaddleDesignswhy they love SwaddleDesigns.”  The company continues to grow, innovate and invest as they now added a luxurious home collection with adult size blankets and throw.  One of their newest collections is the luscious certified organic cotton collection. We adore the Organic Cotton Flannel zzZipMe Sack in Pastel Pink Dots & Hearts with Pastel Pink Trim (6-12 months).  This sack is made of the same 100 % organic cotton flannel fabric as their organic blankets and has a soft satin trim bordering the neckline and sleeves.  Their exclusive 2-way zipper opens from the top and the bottom (patent pending) making the baby easy to access and keeping the baby snugly during diaper changes.  This wearable blanket is best for when babies are ready to transition from swaddling.  This particular sack has a TOG rating of 0.7 which is appropriate for temperatures of 72-78 degrees F caused by warmer weather.

SwaddleDesignsFor nights that are chillier, you can opt for a warmer option with the Fleece zzZipMe Sack with Fuzzy Dots in Kiwi and Gold with Mocha Trim.  This plush and fuzzy fabric made of 100% polyester will keep your baby warm as it has a TOG rating of 2.2 which is appropriate for temperatures of 65-70 degrees F.  The design could not be cuter with the kiwi and gold dots intermixed against a white background and accented with satin mocha trim.  This sack also has their signature 2-way zipper opening from the top and bottom, making baby access easy. SwaddleDesigns is a brand moms love to receive, love to give, and love to purchase for themselves. It is not uncommon for the company to hear that a mom has 5-8 of their blankets. In addition to the Ultimate Receiving Blanket, the very lightweight Marquisette Swaddling Blanket is the finest quality open weave swaddling blanket with incredible softness due to the fine threads and high thread count.

We also love how all items are manufactured in the USA, more specifically sewn in Seattle, Washington. SwaddleDesigns procures components directly from leading suppliers to ensure the superiority of their products as they consistently deliver high quality.  “SwaddleDesigns is proud to be creating American jobs and exporting our products to Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Americas,” says Lynette.  In addition to manufacturing locally and offering a certified organic collection, SwaddleDesigns uses many domestic fabrics, sustainable fibers, recycled fibers, and recyclable packaging so that they are as eco-friendly as possible.  Due to the dedication of this hard working husband and wife team, Lynette and Jeff Damir have nurtured SwaddleDesigns to grow as well as their Seattle-based crew.  Stock up on swaddle blankets, sleep sacks and more at swaddledesigns.com
