Although Gianna wasn’t thrilled with being swaddled as a newborn, it certainly helped us to calm her and get her to sleep on many a night. Most nights, however, it took several attempts to get the swaddle tight enough since she always managed to wriggle out of it. Now it doesn’t take an engineering degree to master the folds and tucks of a proper swaddle, but I won’t say that it’s the easiest thing to do either. WrapADoodle was created to alleviate the hassle of all that wrapping. And that’s why they are #9 on my list of Newborn Neccessities.
With a WrapADoodle you don’t have to wind any fabric round and round the baby; just simply tuck her in the fabric pocket and tie together the sides for an instant swaddle. Each WrapADoodle is made to fit babies up to 4 months, though since Gianna is such a peanut she was able to fit well into her 5th month. Hers is made of the cutest brown cotton flannel covered in colorful animals – the Whales, Fish, Turtles, Giraffes design. In fact, each WrapADoodle is made with 100% cotton flannel and there are 9 adorable prints from which to choose. And they wash wonderfully well!
You can also order a matching BurpADoodle burp cloth made of the exact fabric as the WrapADoodle. BurpADoodles are a great size burp cloth that look a heck of a lot cuter on your shoulder than the white cloth diapers which most of us resort to. They are sold individually or as a gift set.
WrapADoodles can be ordered directly from their website for $39.99 and make great baby shower gifts. Mention Mommies with Style when you order and you’ll receive a matching BurpADoodle for free!
