SIDS Awareness Month: Swaddle Duo™ Giveaway

SwaddleDesigns® founder Lynette Damir, a registered nurse, discovered that parents struggled with swaddling and were unable to find the perfect size blanket. SwaddleDesigns® was the first company to introduce large square swaddling blankets in the US and worldwide in 2002. The company is known for the innovative 123 Swaddle® instructional label that helps new parents master the art of swaddling. In addition to swaddling, their blankets are great as a nursing cover for breastfeeding moms, a tummy time play mat, and a stroller cover. 

As an advocate for baby's health, SwaddleDesigns® provides current information to help new parents make informed decisions. Their website includes the Safe Sleep Program (Safe Sleep practices to reduce the risk of SIDS), How to Swaddle (guide to swaddling), and Goldilocks Guide™ (temparature awareness), among other things.

According to leading SIDS researchers, both overheating AND overchilling are risk factors for SIDS. In addition, it’s important for parents to understand that when baby is too cool during sleep, baby will use valuable energy to stay warm instead of growing and thriving. Over the past few years some juvenile product companies have over focused on overheating as a SIDS risk factor, and there has been a lack of balanced conversation regarding insufficient thermal insulation – the danger of baby being too cool - as a risk factor for SIDS. It is time for a balanced information where parents are educated and reminded of their important responsibility to make sure baby is not too hot or too cold, but comfortably warm.
