Bambino Merino Swaddling Blanket!

Bambino Merino 
 Swaddling is an act of love, I think. Swaddling imitates the security baby feels while inside the Belly! It calms Baby, helping him sleep longer. Swaddling also prevents startling and waking from involuntary arm and leg movements (the Moro reflex). Tater’s Moro reflex is strong! While we don’t know the cause of SIDS for sure, most experts agree that swaddling reduces risk factors associated with SIDS by helping baby to sleep on his back. I'd like to think that it is a bit like Mommy holding Tater all night long! 
                      Swaddled in the Bambino Merino Swaddle Blanket
 I was fortunate enough to be sent a Bambino Merino Swaddling Blanket in Sky (sky blue). It came all the way from the U.K.!   
  Bambino Merino was started by Rochelle after the premature birth of her son. She was looking for something that would keep him warm, but, not overheat him. She created baby sleep sacks and blankets from New Zealand merino wool (I’ll bet that’s where part of the name comes from; bambino is “baby” in Italian).     
  I was so surprised when I got this! When I read that it was wool, I was skeptical as to whether baby would stay cool. The swaddle blanket is so light! It is also silky smooth. It is very stretchy! This is great, because, when Tater was born, he was 10 lbs. and 5 oz.! He is already a bit bigger than the average 3 month old. But, he still needs that loving comfort of being swaddled. It stretched to a perfect fit. He was in his very own cocoon! 
                                        All comfy cozy!
  I love the Bambino Merino Swaddle blanket and I’m sure you will too! Priced at £34.95 or about $50.00 USD. (I may be slightly off, I used X-rates.com to calculate the conversion). The price is a bit too steep for me, although if you are expecting, be sure to add it to your registry! Also, this blanket can last a long time! It can be used in a variety of ways: as a regular blanket, a cover during nursing or even a sun cover over your car seat. 
 What a great, light weight, yet warm way to swaddle baby!

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog on the hop (mysweetpotato3)! I have heard so many wonderful things about the Bambino Swaddling Blanket! I too was a huge swaddler, all 3 of my kids were swaddled until at least 9 months. I didn't realize that there may be a link to SIDS prevention-that is fantastic! Cannot wait to hear more research in that area!
