I have been preparing for baby #2 by making lists of items that I still need to purchase. Most of the bigger baby items I got when I was pregnant with Elin were gender neutral, but of course since I opted to find out her gender I went all girly with clothes, blankets, and all the fun baby accessories.
Since this one is a boy, there are some items that I am needing to stock up on. I am researching brands and companies again to refresh myself on what products are out there and which ones are tried and true. Of course there are some brands that I already know that I love and I know that I want to go with them when purchasing those particular baby items. In fact, I started an Amazon baby registry at the request of some friends and colleagues since I have a couple of baby sprinkles coming up. Some items that I added on there right away were SwaddleDesigns blankets and burp cloths. I had both of those items with Elin and loved them. In fact, their blankets were so pretty that they are in a lot of photos from her newborn photoshoot.
So, imagine my surprise and delight when SwaddleDesigns reached out to me with an offer to host a giveaway of their new soft single muslin blankets in their new prints.
Yes, please! Perfect timing!
How sweet are the little pandas and hedgehogs? I am a fan of soft grays and silvers for boy stuff as opposed to a lot of blue, so I love that they offer a lot of soft gray options.
I love using muslin blankets for swaddling since they are soft and breathable, especially in the spring and summer months. These are the only blankets I carried in my baby bag and I plan on that as well for baby #2. They are recommended by pediatricians and designed by an RN.
Here are some pictures of the other items I have registered for and plan on purchasing from SwaddleDeisgns. I have used both the burp cloths and the receiving blankets with Elin.
Now for the giveaway! SwaddleDesigns has very graciously given me a blanket for my readers to win.
