It’s safe to say that swaddles are one of my favorite baby products, especially for the newest additions. Babies aren’t used to all of that space outside the womb and swaddling them up nice and tight makes them feel safe and secure while they adjust to this big, new world. Another great thing about swaddles unlike some other baby products is that they grow with baby and are useful well beyond the first few months.
Reylin doesn’t quite let us swaddle her nice and tight like when she was a newborn and she’d pretty adamant about keeping her chubby little arms OUT! But she still loves getting cozy in her favorite swaddles and with the hot weather this summer, we like using swaddles instead of blankets when putting her in her car seat and wrapping her up when it’s still a little breezy.
Since I’m all about eco-friendly materials and the healthiest products for my little girl, it’s important to me that everything that she has and that could possibly go into her mouth is also safe! I love that I can count on
Dinky D to offer organic (certified) products that are soft on her new skin and breathable in the heat.
Dinky D’s swaddles are PERFECT for keeping around for cute little photo sessions and always keeping on hand. I also LOVE that they have muslin squares that are super absorbent and perfect for spit up rags or burp clothes. I absolutely LOVE to use these little squares on the ends of my ring slings that my babe likes to chew on to keep them dry and protected!
Here’s some photos of our girl modeling the gorgeous color options and loving on her swaddles!
If you’re looking for an extremely high-quality brand that is stylish and extremely functional Dinky D is an awesome resource and would be the perfect place to find your next baby shower gift.

The Best Swaddles for your Baby Burrito and Beyond!
One of my biggest cravings during pregnancies was garage sales. I know that sounds insane but as a first time nesting mom (on a budget) for some reason I thought I needed to clothe my newborn for the first 5 years of her life in a matter of weeks. While I did get a few scores (like 50 brand new bows for ten cents each). I didn’t end of buying 5 years of clothing.
Pregnancy brain is insane, I swear! I was really excited about all these cute little outfits tho and was thrilled to dress her a thousand times a day. The funny part of this story is that my baby as a sweet, precious newborn hated wearing clothes. As a new, kind of awkward new mommy I hated dressing my baby. I was so afraid of hurting her little arms and didn’t ever want her to be uncomfortable.
One of the greatest things the hospital introduces you to right away is the swaddling method!! This is so huge for any parent and new baby transitioning from their cramped but comfortable and warm womb. My husband watched the nurses and soon was a MASTER at swaddling and baby absolutely loved it. However, the swaddles that hospitals provide are very much hospital swaddles and bringing your own swaddle to the hospital is a MUST!
I love the huge assortment that Swaddle Designs offers and their multi-packs would make the perfect baby shower gift! For my next baby I will definitely be looking through and choosing my favorite swaddle for baby’s birth announcement photos.
This is also how your baby will sleep for the majority of the beginning of his/her life. In all my nesting phase, I sincerely wish that someone would’ve told me how much baby’s need swaddles and I would’ve stocked up on them instead of all these newborn clothes!! She grew so fast and the truth is she didn’t even get through all of the outfits from her baby shower but we will continue to use these swaddles for nursing covers, on the stroller, as emergency burp rags/clean up and lightweight blankets.
We loved cooing over her fresh newborn wrinkles and getting in all the skin time we could and swaddle designs swaddles are so perfect for that! Swaddle Designs makes the softest, eco-friendly and USA produced products that are very affordable. They also make an assortment of other products and have great customer service! I would highly recommend stocking up on some of their adorable swaddles in preparation for a new baby and even buying some for your older baby as they are so versatile and high quality.
