Baby Buys: Edition 3 - SwaddleMe, please!

I can't tell you how many times have I heard, "I've never been able to wrap my baby like they do in the hospital!" Well dry those tears, no need to fear! I introduce to you the...

Kiddopotamus - SwaddleMe Swaddling Blanket!!

When I had Raegen I received three of these hand-me-down swaddlers from B's aunt and absolutely fell in LOVE with them! I was never a master at the traditional receiving blanket burrito wrap and this swaddle blanket allowed me to not focus on my short comings as a new mama!! haha! It is so easy to use and keeps baby snug and comfy. They come in all colors, fabrics {microfleece, cotton, & cotton flannel}, and sizes {preemie 3-7lb, small7-14lb, & large15-22lb}.

I tried other brands as well, but found the Kiddopotamus to be the best. When Raegen was a baby I could only find these online, but have since seen them in Walmart, Target, and Babies 'R Us stores. They are available online from numerous sources and I'm sure you could find them on eBay for a great price too. The average price for one is $10, and trust me, it's



It stays fastened with three simple velcro tabs. When you throw it in the wash, just fold the tab down to prevent the velcro from sticking to other items in the wash. One of the best features is you can easily change baby's diaper WITHOUT removing the wrap. Simply pull the leg pouch down and VIOLA!, baby is ready to be changed!

There is also a harness access slit in the back of the blanket that allows it to be used safely in swings, car seats, and strollers. Click here to see and read more.

I have given numerous of these as baby gifts over the past three years and I can't count how many people I've lent the original three hand-me-down blankets to...I'm pretty sure my sister's even used them two separate times with two different babies! :)

It's a great gift to give AND receive! :)

Poll has closed. It's a BOY!!!

Take the poll located on the right side of the screen. Will we be having another baby boy or a baby girl? What do you think?

If it's any help, I haven't had any dreams {like I did with Raegen, dreaming I was having a boy} and I just don't have that "feeling" with this baby. I did have severe morning sickness that lasted through week 15, quite unlike my mild morning sickness that ended at week 12 with Raegen. That info may help or confuse you more! I'm anxious to see what everyone else thinks we're having.

Is baby #3 a boy or a girl?
