One thing that I feel is an absolute must have for any new mom is a good swaddle blanket. It has been proven that smaller babies, especially newborns, feel an increased sense of security and comfort when swaddled. Imagine, they spent 9 months all snug and cozy in the womb, and then all of the sudden they're no longer wrapped up so snugly. It must be one difficult transition to have to make! That's why parents have been swaddling babies for generations. This allows baby to stay warm and secure, and also allows for more hours of uninterrupted sleep, making the weary parent's lives so much easier! It has also been my experience that swaddling a baby also results in less crying as well as fewer scratches. And of course, a happy baby means happier parents!
So while swaddling babies is an art as old as time itself, there are tons of products available to help. From plain receiving blankets to specially designed swaddlers, it can be a daunting task choosing the perfect one. Well, ladies, I have found it. The Babybonkie. The Babybonkie is a fantastic swaddler that is constructed of only the highest quality, softest fabrics around that are sure to be gentle and cozy against baby's delicate skin. Depending on the model, some Babybonkies are even lined with an ultra-soft, luxurious Minkee! (Insert Ooh's and Ahh's here.) This makes the Babybonkie THE softest, snuggliest swaddler around!
But aside from soft, sumptuous fabrics, the Babybonkie is also the highest fashion swaddler I have ever seen. Parents of new babies are inundated with baby gear featuring the same soft pastels and prints with duckies or equally over-played baby themes. While these options are definitely cutesy and traditional, they certainly wouldn't be seen on a proverbial baby Red Carpet. Many parents, myself included, want their babies to be stylish and trendy. Especially when making their debut into the outside world. Babybonkies come in a ton of fashion-forward, gorgeous prints that allow baby to step out in style. The colors are bright and vibrant, and definitely coincide with the hottest trends in fashion. With girl's, boy's, and gender neutral options available, these swaddlers make the perfect baby shower gift for those expectant parents that only want the absolute best for their new arrivals.
I was lucky enough to receive a couple of fabulous Babybonkies for my review. Sadly, my babies are too big to be swaddled, but I will be gifting these to an unsuspecting friend who is expecting a daughter in just a couple of short months. (I did, however, try the more gender neutral print out on Xander for photographic purposes.) When I received my Babybonkies, I was immediately struck by the superior quality of the fabrics. These swaddlers are unbelievably soft. They were both lined with a velvety, plush Minkee. As a matter of fact, the beige and white Babybonkie was entirely constructed of this soft fabric!
I also noticed the care taken in the construction of the Babybonkies. These are very well made, and had no loose or crooked seams. The velcro closures make swaddling super-easy, and are very secure. Take a look at how gorgeous these are!
I also received a more girly print. This Babybonkie is made of a soft, high quality cotton and lined with Minkee. I used a Monkey for visual purposes.
I would definitely recommend the Babybonkie to any expectant or new parents. This is an absolute must have. Sure, there are other swaddlers on the market, but none this soft or quite so fashionable. Plus, the quality of the design and materials is unsurpassed. Babybonkies are easy to use, machine washable, and very durable. The unique design is perfect to keep baby swaddled securely throughout the night, and is easy to operate for even the sleepiest, most inexperienced parents. Babybonkie even offers an eco-friendly version that is made of 100% Organic Cotton for those green mamas out there! And when your little bundle of joy outgrows the Babybonkie, they also offer a great sleep sack, the Bonkybag, that is specially designed to keep older babies cozy and warm! I so need one of those for my babies! So what are you waiting for? Grab a Babybonkie or 3 and give your precious little one the poshest, plushest sleep possible!
