4 Pack Lambie & Me Swaddle Blankets Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I was recently offered the opportunity a set of swaddle blankets from Lambie & Me. I must admit, I have a toddler around 2 years old, and although we are not swaddling her anymore, we do have one blanket that we used to swaddle her in that we use quite a bit. 

I was ecstatic to be able to try this brand, especially since it is an organic product.

The set I received has 2 of the red and gray polka dots and 2 of the caterpillars.

If you have never felt an organic swaddle blanket, I suggest you try it.So soft and light, and it has such a pleasing feel on the skin. I was so excited to get this package, I tossed them in the wash immediately so we could use them at the nap time that day. 

They wash beautifully. Even softer the second time I washed them. My daughter was squealing as she played with all 4 of them, and she knew they were for her. She picked one to nap with, and even as a toddler in the 99th percentile for height, a 47 inch blanket is going to cover her a long time. 

I picked one to nap too- I wear a cami top around the house, and often get a little chill when sleeping or sitting on the couch and this swaddle blanket is the best to just throw over myself as a light cover. 

I love having a set of four- I was constantly washing the one we had when she was younger, I was so tired I guess it never occurred to me to buy another..lol. 

Swaddling was a lifesaver for us when my daughter was a newborn. She rarely slept away from me or her dad, and a swaddle helped her get comfy on those rare occasions she slept alone.She just wasn't ready to be away from a warm mamma I guess. Swaddling that is performed properly is soothing and keeps baby happy!

We are planning a trip in a few weeks, and we tested the blanket for fit in toddler's backpack, and it was small enough to fit with plenty of room for books and toys. We will use that blanket to cover her, me, or as a place to play if we are stuck anywhere. She will be comforted having something familiar from home.

When she was younger, we also used the muslin blanket we had to cover her carseat when we were out (people always trying to touch her.) This lightweight fabric is perfect- just enough to repel people but give her a cover that breathes.

We didn't do a lot of nursing in public, but this would have been ideal as a cover- 47 x 47 is much bigger than most nursing covers, and certainly made of more breathable material. It would have been fantastic.

I won't lie- I tried to swaddle the toddler. She thought it was pretty funny. I think we could have done it too if she hadn't giggled so much. 

Overall, I am very pleased with these swaddle blankets. 

Thanks so much to Lambie & Me for letting us try these!

They would like to give one of you a set for yourself!
