SwaddleDesigns blankets are the only swaddling blankets with
instructions sewn to the edge of the blanket (patent pending).
Experts including Dr. Harvey Karp, Dr. Laura Jana, Dr. Bradley Thach, Dr. Sears…. recommend swaddling for sleep time.
SwaddleDesigns® - considered by many to be the gold standard in swaddling blankets. When you want the very best baby swaddle blanket for your baby, you can confidently select SwaddleDesigns because no brand offers a better made and higher quality swaddling blanket. Babies love the cozy comfort and ultra-soft texture of SwaddleDesigns premium cotton swaddling wraps and babies sleep better swaddled. SwaddleDesigns cotton flannel The Ultimate Receiving Blanket® is lightweight, preshrunk, breathable and features beautiful designer colors and prints. SwaddleDesigns Marquisette Swaddling Blanket® is the finest quality open weave, lightweight swaddling blanket made from high quality yarns. SwaddleDesigns is a favorite baby shower and welcome baby gift.
SwaddleDesigns was founded by Lynette Damir, a registered nurse and mother of two young children. While visiting families with new babies, Lynette found that parents struggled with swaddling because they didn’t have the right kind of blanket (the blankets were too small or too thick) and the new parents could not remember how to make a good secure swaddle. Lynette understood that parents needed a large, square cotton blanket and they needed help when trying to learn how to swaddle. Lynette designed the The Ultimate Receiving Blanket with 123 Swaddle® instructional tag sewn to its edge, so new moms and new dads would have the pictorial instructions at their fingertips when they swaddled their baby. Lynette’s blanket has helped hundreds of thousands of new parents learn how to swaddle.
The Ultimate Receiving Blanket is also known as the Ultimate Swaddling Blanket®. It is recommended by doctors, nurses, doulas and parent educators because of the functional and educational value. SwaddleDesigns swaddling blankets are a favorite new baby gift and cherished by new parents. New moms fall in love with SwaddleDesigns swaddling blankets because of the premium soft cotton, signature trim, quality, colors, and style – and because SwaddleDesigns blankets calm and comfort their baby with loving softness.
Babies love the soft texture of cotton flannel. Hospitals throughout the USA use cotton flannel blankets to wrap newborn babies. Cotton flannel is the best choice for newborns because cotton flannel keeps baby comfortably warm in moderate and cool temperatures, and cotton is durable, breathable, soft, and safe for baby. However, hospital receiving blankets are small and babies quickly outgrow the hospital receiving blanket. SwaddleDesigns Ultimate Receiving Blanket is 42”x42” and large enough to swaddle baby for several months. Parents often state their babies sleep better swaddled in SwaddleDesigns premium ultra-soft cotton flannel blanket. Numerous medical studies have proven that Swaddled Babies Sleep Better®.
Lynette’s medical back ground and passion for helping new parents combined with her design education from the Art Institute of Seattle enabled her to develop the Ultimate Swaddling Blanket with its patent pending innovation. When she designed her award winning product in 2002, many people did not know what the word swaddling meant because swaddling was a lost art outside the hospitals in the US. Since that time, Lynette has received recognition for helping to build the awareness of the many benefits of swaddling. The SwaddleDesigns blanket is truly a great value and keepsake that will be used and treasured for years.
Babies born in US hospitals are wrapped in a cotton flannel receiving blanket. Babies are not good at regulating their temperature and it is important that baby is kept warm, but not too warm. Hospitals trust and use cotton flannel for swaddling newborns. Many hospitals use SwaddleDesigns blankets to teach swaddling to their new parents and give their new parents an Ultimate Receiving Blanket as a new parent gift.
Lynette created the Goldilocks Guide™ ~ Baby should not be too hot or too cold, but just right – comfortably warm ~ to help parents remember not to overdress or underdress their baby especially at sleeptime. Parents need to understand that it is their important responsibility to check their baby to make sure baby is not too hot or too cold.
The Ultimate Receiving Blanket has become a favorite swaddler, recommended by doctors, nurses, doulas and parent educators because medical professionals understand parents and baby both benefit when baby sleeps better and everyone can get more rest. It is a favorite new baby gift and cherished by new mothers and fathers because it helps new parents learn to swaddle. Thousands of moms and dads have written testimonials sharing their experience and how SwaddleDesigns has become the favorite blanket.

SwaddleDesigns Safe Sleep Program strives to educate new parents and caregivers using the most current research to increase awareness of safe sleep practices and to help reduce the risk of SIDS. Many medical experts recommend a sleep environment of 65-70°F or around 20°C. The Ultimate Receiving Blanket is an appropriate weight for this temperature range for most babies. Because every baby is unique and because no blanket can naturally regulate a baby’s temperature, it is important for caregivers to dress their baby based on to the current temperature of the room and their unique baby. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends dressing the baby in no more than one more layer than you are wearing to be comfortable in the same environment. It’s important not to overdress or underdress baby for sleep. Signs of overheating include sweaty back or neck, damp hair, rapid breathing or heat rash. If baby feels sweaty, remove a layer of clothing. Sometimes baby’s hands or feet feel cool due to their immature blood circulation which is considered okay as long as their chest, tummy and back are warm, not sweaty or cool.
SwaddleDesigns offers the Marquisette Swaddling Blanket for swaddling in warm climates and warmer environments. SwaddleDesigns Marquisette Swaddling Blanket is made from premium cotton in a lightweight open weave design. Marquisette is similar to gauze, however marquisette has a softer hand because of the finer threads and higher thread count. SwaddleDesigns offers the finest, highest quality lightweight swaddling cloths on the market.
Parents often ask when to stop swaddling and how to wean from swaddling? We recommend swaddling for the first 3 months. To help baby transition from swaddling, swaddle baby with one arm out of the swaddle for a few nights. When baby has adjusted to this change, try swaddling with both arms out. A baby who is able to roll over should not have their arms inside a swaddle and should be placed in pajamas or a wearable blanket such as our zzZipMe Sack™.
When it’s time for baby to graduate from swaddling, SwaddleDesigns offers the zzZipMe Sack™ Wearable Blanket. SwaddleDesigns zzZipMe Sack has a clever 2-way zipper that zips from the bottom-up allowing for diaper changes while keeping baby warm and cozy, and it zips from the top-down making it easy to place baby or remove baby from the super-soft wearable blanket with satin trim. SwaddleDesigns has a pending patent on this innovative design. SwaddleDesigns offers a multitude of fabric options for the award winning zzZipMe Sack: cozy Puff Circles™, silky baby velvet, premium cotton flannel and organic cotton flannel and organic eco-fleece. SwaddleDesigns zzZipMe Sacks have been thermal tested in the UK using TOG testing to provide parents with helpful guidelines when dressing baby for sleep.
