There is nothing so sweet as a freshly swaddled infant, wrapped in an airy cotton blankie, is there?
But for many, the art of swaddling is a daunting challenge. It seems impossible to get the baby contained in the blanket and an exercise in soothing quickly becomes a stressful baby wrestling match that ends in tears for all involved.
It doesn’t have to be this way. A little instruction goes a long way. Which is why I love the Luna Luna Soothing Blankets. These muslin wraps come in utterly adorable prints and patterns (we love “To the Moon” which is also a favorite of Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen for baby Olive), but they also come with an all important educational dvd that teaches you how to use the blankets swaddle and soothe your baby. And what’s more, the dvd has an audio portion with the white noise that so many fussy babies need to get their calm on.
If you are a new parent or parent to be, this is a package worth picking up! The DVD is worth watching before the baby even arrives so you are familiar with the swaddling techniques. Impress the nurses at the hospital! If you have ever had a child with colic and are looking for a complete soothing system, you should also check out the bounce-a-bye ball from Luna Lullaby that we recently reviewed.
Even if you decide that swaddling is not for your baby, you will find a hundred and one uses for these delightful muslin wraps. Use them as a stroller cover, use them as a light airy cover up for nursing in public, an impromtu burp cloth, or as the perfect summer cover for a baby that will not cause them to overheat.
Buy your swaddlers directly from the Luna Lullaby website, and choose from nine adorable color/pattern combos.
