Nurse-turned-entrepreneur Lynette Damir founded SwaddleDesigns in 2002 after discovering that most swaddling blankets on the market were either too small or too thick and unwieldy to conveniently fashion into a swaddle. SwaddleDesigns’ Ultimate Receiving Blanket, wearable zzZipMe sack blanket, stroller blankets, and Baby Lovie security blankets come in velvet, organic cotton flannel, and other lightweight fabrics printed with cheerful chickies, elephants, and other adorable animal designs. For parents, a set of easy-to-follow swaddling instructions is sewn onto each blanket (swaddling can reduce the likelihood of SIDS, and also helps babies sleep more soundly). In addition to blankets, SwaddleDesigns also designs Baby Burpies burp cloths and bibs, clothing, hooded towels, fitted crib sheets, and many other baby essentials. With so many stylish and high-quality baby products in its collection, it’s no wonder that SwaddleDesigns has become a favorite brand among celeb moms such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie.
Welcome your bundle with our most adorable onesies, hoodies, and more
This company was born after Lynette Damir, a nurse and now SwaddleDesigns CEO, discovered that many families struggled with swaddling their babies. Parents were always asking her to share her swaddling secrets, so she developed a blanket with instructions sewn to the edge (superstar moms like Gwyneth Paltrow, Marcia Cross, and Angelina Jolie are fans). This highly-recommended line also features baby clothes — here we have Angry Birds-themed onesies, bibs, and more.
Cozy sleepsacks, crib linens, and sterling silver keepsakes make for charming presents.
