Moms and dads are talking about SwaddleDesigns
SwaddleDuo, an essential for new parents!
I don't think I've ever gone out of my way to write a testimonial before, but then again, I've never LOVED a baby product as much as I love our SwaddleDesigns Swaddle Duo! When we learned we were expecting a baby girl, we decided upon a nursery theme of "It's A Small World". My sister then decided to throw us a baby shower with the same theme. It was while searching for baby shower things that she stumbled upon the Small World Swaddle Duo and gave it to us as a gift. I fell in love immediately because of the design, but it wasn't until after our sweet Emeri was born that I fell head-over-heels in love with them. She is our second baby and I made it a point not to bring as much stuff with us to the hospital this time. These two swaddling blankets made the list, though.
Thank goodness we brought them, too! It had been only 2 1/2 years since our son was born, but I had sort of forgotten how to swaddle a newborn. The instruction tag right on the blanket was very helpful. Also, I LOVED wrapping her up in the marquisette blanket for when visitors came by (both in the hospital & at home). It was perfect for keeping her comfy, yet light enough that all the warm bodies holding her didn't overheat her. The blankets are a great size, too. She's 6 months old now and we still use them all the time! We lay them out on the floor for her to play on, I've used the as cover-ups while nursing, they make great blankets for on-the-go and we even swaddle her up on occasion when she's super fussy.
My only regret is that we weren't able to get more. I LOVE the new chevron patterns...actually I love all of the designs! I recommend SwaddleDesigns to everyone I know who is expecting or has a newborn. These blankets are absolutely fantastic!! Thank you so much for such a wonderful baby product! Attached you will find a picture of our sweet baby Emeri enjoying her Swaddle Duo blankets.
THE Coveted Blankie
Out of all the blankets my son was given (and trust me, there were many) and all the ones that I used on him since the day he was born, his SwaddleDesigns Ultimate Receiving Blanket is the only one that was granted the coveted title of blankie. He is 15 months old now and blankie is never far from where he is, he won't sleep without it and when he gets abooboo he always wants his blankie to comfort him. He doesn't use this blanket to cover up with, it is purely for cuddling, comforting and once upon a time, it was the only blanket big enough to swaddle all of him (he was a very tall infant).
Your products are lovely and so far has stood the test of time, multiple washes and a VERY active toddler. I am planning on buying a second blanket this week exactly like it just in case something happens to it. My son would be crushed without his blankie. Thank you for producing such a wonderful product, you guys rock!
Your blankets help comfort us all
I just have to tell you this story, my 4 yr old nephew loves his swaddle blankets, in fact he had two that he still sleeps with. I
have recently given birth to a little boy and my nephew came in to the last family gathering and told me he didn't need his blanket
anymore and thinks it would be great to pass it on to Isaiah. (my sister in law and brother had no clue he was going to do this we were
all surprised ) After thanking him he showed me the instruction on how to swaddle attached to the blanket and swaddle his bear to show me
how to swaddle Isaiah. Thank you so much for making such great blankets. Your blankets help comfort us all. I now have four
of your blankets and am looking to order more.
2-year-olds still love their SwaddleDesigns Blankets
We purchased 2 of your blankets when we had twins almost 2 years ago. We bought them primarily to use for swaddling--little did we
know how obsessed they would become with their "blankies"! Both of our twins, Ireland and Elias, have grown attached to their Swaddle
Designs blankets, and *have* to sleep with them as their comforter. They both carry them around frequently throughout the day--our son
Elias especially is seriously in love with his blankie. We sometimes call him "Linus" (from Peanuts) as he will walk around with it
dragging behind him all day. In fact, if we try and put him down without it (and replace it with another blanket), he will scream as if
you just put a snake in his crib. What's amazing is the blankets still look like new 2 years later. For the past 2 years they have
been dragged, spit-up on (and thrown-up on...eww), chewed on, thrown, and more. They have been washed more times than we can count. Yet,
they still look pristine and like new! Thank you for this great product that has become much more of our twins' lives than we would have

Best Blanket for Swaddling
Our son received a hairline fracture in his collar bone
during birth and his Dr. recommended keeping him well-swaddled
for the first few weeks until it mended. This blanket is
hands-down the best for swaddling a newborn. It was the
softest, best size and dimensions, and out baby stayed
swaddled in it the longest. The other swaddle blankets
came un-swaddled much more quickly. Plus, it truly does
make swaddling easy for beginners! We liked our so much
we bought two more within the first week of our son's birth.
One of the best gifts we received!"
Bree, new mother
A Must for Swaddling
As a baby nurse, I bring them to my new assignments or
I strongly suggest they order them. They are a must for
proper and appropriate swaddling. I love them! I use them
even for my tiny twins. Thanks for the perfect product.
Professional BN to many miracles!

Highest Parental Standards
I looked everywhere for swaddling blankets
for our daughter and finally had to have some made because
none of the blankets I found worked as a swaddling blanket.
I found these while on a trip to Seattle, WA and bought
three immediately. My wife likes the fabric and our daughter
sleeps better with them. All parents want what is best
for their children and these will hold up to the highest
of parental standards. They even had directions for her

Favorite Baby Shower Gift
A girlfriend bought this blanket for my baby shower
because she had found out that Gwyneth Paltrow had bought
one for her baby! I absolutely love this blanket, it
is big, and it is nice that the directions on how to
swaddle properly were on the label. Now that my son is
6 months old, we use the blanket for other uses, like
tummy time and keeping warm outdoors!
Jennifer, mother of a
wonderful 6 month old boy, Paso Robles, CA
Thanks to SwaddleDesigns for bringing a wonderful product
to the market! Not only do I recommend these products
to my friends/family, I recommend them to my patients.
As a Labor & Delivery nurse manager, I understand
the importance of swaddling newborns and the benefits
it can afford new parents. Swaddle Designs has created
a product that is easy to use and stands up to its reputation.
Keep up the great work!
Melanie, RN, BSN, Dallas,
The Only Blanket
This one is the only one worth its price. Comes with
easy to follow instructions sewn right onto one side.
I love this blanket. First of all, it's the right size
for swaddling 42" by 42", and the weight is
just right, a soft, light flannel that wraps baby. For
my second child, I found this blanket, and he never broke
free. I used it for him and my third, and I give these
to all my friends and relatives who are expecting. I
always kept two on hand, for when one was in the wash.
Once baby outgrows the swaddle, the blanket continues
to come in handy. It's nice and large, and makes a great
shade over the stroller. Also works as a cover-up when
M Collins, East Coast
Perfect Size and Multi-Use
This really is the ultimate receiving blanket! Besides
being the perfect size for swaddling (and a handy little
swaddling tutorial printed on every label) it's great
for just about any situation, is just the right size
and is not too heavy or too light. I've used it to: toss
over the stroller when the baby is sleeping, folded it
up on my lap to provide support for baby's head while
nursing, covered the baby to keep him warm with room
left to wipe drool :) It comes in a wide array of colors
to match any nursery!
Perfect for Swaddling
We tried other swaddling blankets but this is the only
one we use. We received it as a gift and bought two more.
The fabric is the perfect weight for swaddling--large
and tightly woven enough to hold our squirmy 9-pound-newborn
baby firmly and warmly (not too warmly), soft enough
that you feel good wrapping your baby in it (the organic
cotton helps, too). If you have a strong baby, then don't
waste your time with blankets made of T-shirt material,
waffle weave, or the like; they stretch too much and
baby's arms will be out in no time. A nice feature is
that this blanket has a tag, well-placed out of the way
of baby's face, that shows how to swaddle your baby in
three easy steps (useful if you need a gentle reminder
in your haze of sleep deprivation).
K. U. USA
The Swaddle Designs blanket was one of the best gifts
I received. The pictures of how to swaddle a baby on
the sewn-in tag are very helpful. At the hospital, the
nurses showed me how to swaddle, but I couldn't remember
how to do it when I got home. My best friend came to
visit me and brought me this blanket. I realized the
small rectangular blankets that I was trying to use were
just too small and this blanket is much bigger and showed
me how to make a swaddle that stayed secure. I bought
2 more because otherwise I was doing wash all the time.
My baby is 6 months old now, and I no longer swaddle
him, but I have used this blanket for everything from
a tummy time mat, a cover-up while nursing, a changing
pad, extra padding to prop his head in the car seat,
and I take it everywhere. I buy Swaddle Designs' blankets
for my friends now as gifts. I am very happy with the
quality. I haven't found a softer, bigger organic flannel
blanket, and I love the sweet stitching.
"The blanket is really attractive, wonderful to touch, and intuitive to use. The dimensions are perfect - all the corners and edges fell neatly into place as I was following the steps on the tip tag!"
"This is a beautiful blanket! It is soft yet sturdy, and is the perfect size not only for swaddling our little girl, but also shielding our stroller from a chill or sun. She is growing quickly, but this blankie will not be easily outgrown, it has such generous proportions! I lay it out flat for tummy time and it works great. I know other parents who have this blanket and we feel so "in the know" to have found such a wonderful product!"
Paula, mother of 2, Seattle
"Our daughter is 3 months now and we still swaddle her in this. We had receiving blankets that she grew right out of at about 4 weeks. We sent one to her cousin who was having a hard time sleeping and his parents said that he will only fall asleep swaddled. He is a big boy so the generous size serves them well."
Jenny, new mom, Seattle
This IS the ULTIMATE swaddling blanket.
"Not often does a product move me to write a review...but this blanket is wonderful. The generous size, high quality cotton flannel, and beautiful trim are just a few reasons we love it. Our baby actually sleeps better when swaddled in her blanket. We now have the Ultimate Swaddling Blanket in EVERY color, so as not to be without one on a given night! Plus, our 2 yr old loves it too!"
Sharon, mother of 2 girls, San Francisco
The Perfect Blanket
"We have received many baby blankets as gifts but this one is the only one we use! It is large enough to really hold the swaddle position which our newborn finds so comforting. The flannel fabric and large size also make it the perfect cover up while nursing (I tuck a corner under my bra strap). This is the item we give to all our friends having children! We only wish we had this blanket with our first two kids."
Mother of 3, Portland
Every Mother Needs This
"I never write reviews for products but want to give information to new moms to make life easier. My baby outgrew the traditional blankets for swaddling in less than 4 weeks. I received this blanket as a gift, and it is the ONLY blanket that we use for napping and sleeping. It is the only blanket that my baby will stay swaddled in, ultimately resulting in her staying asleep. We love it so much that we bought another one, because we MUST have it for sleep! This blanket promotes lengthy sleep and makes life much easier."
Alison, a new mom, Birmingham, AL
The best newborn blanket
"Our son received a hairline fracture in his collar bone during birth and his Dr. recommended keeping him well-swaddled for the first few weeks until it mended. This blanket is hands-down the best for swaddling a newborn, and our Dr. approved of the swaddling technique on the tag. It was the softest, best size and dimensions. Plus, it truly does make swaddling easy for beginners! We liked our so much we bought two more within the first week of our son's birth. One of the best gifts we received!"

My wife likes the fabric and our daughter sleeps better with them. All parents want what is best for their children and these will hold up to the highest of parental standards. They even had directions for her grandparents!"
Robert, first time dad, Billings, MT
"I can't say enough good things about this blanket. It is the only blanket we have that really swaddles and keeps our baby warm. In fact, this blanket really reminds me of the ones they used in the hospital - warm cozy soft flannel but these are large enough to completely wrap around our growing baby. Our baby sleeps the best when we use this blanket and that is a real blessing since she didnâ€™t sleep well unswaddled."
Alise, a new mom, Bloomington, IN
One of the very best
"As a baby nurse, I bring them to my new assignments or I strongly suggest they order them. They are a must for proper and appropriate swaddling. I love them!!!!!!!!! I use them even for my tiny twins. Thanks for the perfect product. Professional BN to many miracles!"
Marilyn, old mother, new grandmother and Professional Baby Nurse, TX and all over US
A Must Have!
"I have never written an online review, but this blanket warrants comment. We purchased one before our baby was born and within his first week, I had ordered three more. This is THE blanket to use. It is easy to swaddle, the flannel is high quality, and is the only "swaddle" blanket we have used that is truly big enough to properly swaddle."
Julia, new mom to a 10 week old boy, Atlanta
PERFECT SIZE FOR LARGER BABIES
"This blanket is perfect for larger babies. My son was swaddled until he was 3 months old. It is nicely made, a perfect size, and has the swaddle instructions right on the label."
Best Blanket! (Burpies & Lovies too!)
"This is the best blanket I've found for swaddling properly and appropriately. Plus it can be used for many things other than swaddling. The colors are great and the quality exceptional. I also love the matching Burpies and Lovies, which I give together with the blanket making a wonderful gift set of products new parents really need and use. I often include an additional Lovie for a big sister or brother because 1-4 year olds love the little satin/flannel security blankies as well. SwaddleDesigns makes great products!"
"I bought this blanket for my 2nd child. Both of my children were big babies. So finding the "perfect" swaddling blanket has always been the challenge. From the first night we put my newborn son into this blanket he slept through the night. This blanket is a lifesaver! No other swaddle blanket comes close. I agree with the other mothers buy more than one. You'll miss it when it's in the wash....My boy is now 5 months old and no longer needs to be swaddled so we too use it as a tummy time throw or for nursing in public. This is by far the best present to give or receive!"
Rachel, mommy of Ariana (5) and Joachim (5 months), RAF Mildenhall, United Kingdom
Ultimate is the ultimate!
"The ultimate in swaddling blankets has to be soft, well designed for wrapping and staying in place and this is it! I was able to wrap my colicky baby into secure blissful sleep."
Polly, North Carolina
Perfect and cuddly
"This is a terrific, cozy blanket and is a favorite in our house. My daughter loves it and it's always the one I reach for (when it's clean). I wish I'd registered for 3 of these!"
Nevada, mother of newborn, CA
A Great Blanket
"We own three. They are the best blankets for swaddling big or older babies. The light fabric is great for all climates, too."
CA Mommy to 2, Orange County, CA
Directions on the label!
"A girlfriend bought this blanket for my baby shower because she had found out that Gwyneth Paltrow had bought one for her baby! I absolutely love this blanket, it is big, and it is nice that the directions on how to swaddle properly were on the label. Now that my son is 6 months old, we use the blanket for other uses, like tummy time and keeping warm outdoors!"
Jennifer, mother of a wonderful 6 month old boy, Paso Robles, CA
Two or More
"Seriously! It really is the most perfect blanket, and you will definitely want more than one. We have one for the crib and one in the diaper bag. And spread the word! I have given all of my childbearing friends these blankets as shower gifts (to rave reviews, of course), and have also recommended it at my parent's group. I just love it. The polka dots, the colors, the handy 1-2-3 swaddle tag--it's perfect!"
Atticus' mommy, Denver, CO
Absolute Must Have!
"We own two of these blankets! They are so soft and cute and perfect for swaddling. Also, they continue to be a useful blanket long after you stop swaddling your child."
Momma of an 8 month old, Seattle
Really is the Ultimate Swaddling Blanket
"I'd been on the hunt to find a blanket big enough for swaddling that's also a good weight (not too heavy) and stays put. This does all 3 and I'd recommend it to everyone. Great blanket!"
Ava, RN, BSN from MN
Hit of the Shower!
"It is so wonderful to give a present that is appreciated and special. Last week, at a shower for one of my very best friends - I gave her the SwaddleDesigns blanket and burpie set. My gift was the hit of the party. I raved about how much my ten month old loves her polka dot blankie and how much I loved it when she was an infant and it was the only blanket large enough to swaddle her. Much to my surprise, two of the other guests had heard about the blanket with swaddling instructions and they were thrilled to see and touch this very special blanket. Everyone loved the lovely stitching. The excitement made my friend feel even more special. And she loved the darling, matching burpies. Truly a special gift. Fun to give, and wonderful to receive."
"I got a lot of blankets as gifts and either gave them away or used them as extra mattress padding because they were too small to be practical. I bought a couple of these to test them, and wound up buying about 10. (I have twins.) They are very soft, useful for swaddling and (later) useful as coverlets. They wash well too."
Carla, mom of two adorable baby girls, New York
Best Swaddle Blanket!
"Our pediatrician, the nurses at the hospital, and some of our favorite "how to" baby books all highly recommend swaddling for young babies - it works! We found this blanket to be the best. Others are too small. The fabric is very soft and washes great! We LOVE it!"
Bette, from Golden, CO
"We received many blankets for gifts. This is my favorite above and beyond any other blanket. It is larger then the average blanket and it is a wonderful weight of flannel. The larger size makes it nice as my baby grows. The other blankets are too small for coverage. I recommend this blanket to any new mom."
Marianne, mother of 5 month old, Oregon
Our Favorite Blanket!
"We received many blankets as shower gifts, but none of them were the right size for swaddling after our son was about 6 weeks old. I purchased this one, and it has become our favorite! It is the perfect size for swaddling larger babies (our son liked to be swaddled until he was 3 months old), and it is lightweight. At 8 months, it is still his favorite blanket, and it is great for traveling, because it is large enough to give him some play space on the floor. A must have!"
Sarah, mother of an 8-month old, CT
The best swaddling blanket out there!
"Even my son's pediatrician commented she hadn't seen a better swaddling blanket! My son doesn't sleep swaddled in any other blanket. As soon as I swaddle him in this, he is at peace, and stops crying. It is warm enough and yet breathable. I am going to purchase a second one. I highly recommend!"
A shopper from NY,NY
Gotta have it!
"My twins were in the NICU-- four and seven weeks respectively-- where they were routinely swaddled by nurses. When I brought them home, they were so accustomed to being swaddled that I absolutely had to continue. Ordinary receiving blankets were too small and flimsy to really swaddle the babies well. These blankets are a great size and weight for swaddling. They are also very pretty-- I loved the dots and finish details-- and they have laundered well. My babies are three months old now-- seven weeks old adjusted-- and still love to be swaddled in them."
Victoria, mom of twins, Dallas, TX
Perfect Swaddling Blanket
"We swaddled our son in this blanket until he was about 3 months old. It was big enough to still fit him when he was 13 pounds. It's a great blanket, washes well and easy to swaddle. I've bought several others as gifts."
KL, mother of 4-month old, Washington DC
Best blanket ever!
"These blankets are so wonderful! We have four now and I can't live without them. Definitely a must have! Awesome quality and finally big enough to really swaddle right."
Leah, mom of 3 beautiful boys, Dallas, TX
the only swaddling blankets that is big enough!
"This is the only swaddling blanket we have found that is large enough. The nurses showed us how to swaddle, but we couldnâ€™t remember once we got home. This quickly became our favorite blanket, since it had the swaddling instructions sewn right on the blanket and it was big and soft! Definitely worth the money!"
Calder's Mommy, Northern Virginia
"Thanks to Swaddle Designs for bringing a wonderful product to the market! Not only do I recommend these products to my friends/family, I recommend them to my patients.

Swaddle Designs has created a product that is easy to use and stands up to its reputation. Keep up the great work!"
Melanie, RN, BSN, Dallas, Texas
It's not just for swaddling.
"We received this blanket as a gift when Juliette was a baby. Now she is 3 years old and she still loves it. She loves to spread her blanket out on the floor, lay all her doll babies down for a nap on it, and she loves to wrap it around her body like a strapless evening gown. She wears it on the head for long flowing hair. The uses are so many. Who knew that it would be so versatile? It's still soft and durable after many washes and uses. It makes a great gift too!"
Maggie De Laurentis Mother of 3, Seattle, WA
Â Best blanket ever!
"Our baby girl had a tough first few months, with acid reflux and possibly colic. Swaddling was the one thing that calmed her. And these blankets were the perfect fit! Swaddle Designs are the perfect size and shape to make swaddling easy for anyone. And, they are soft and warm as well. It's the first gift I give to new moms."
Lynsey, Mother of 2, Sacramento, Ca
A definite must!
"Our daughter was very long and this was the only swaddling blanket out there that worked. It is very secure and she slept longer than she ever had the first night we used it. Washes very well too."
Mom of 3 month old, Omaha
Wish I'd had these with my first baby!!
"I have 3 of these and they are the only blankets I use now! My daughter just turned 3 months and 12 pounds and still sleeps better when swaddled. She loves this blanket and I love that you can swaddle correctly with it. Most blankets are too small which makes them ineffective. These are just perfect! I will still be able to swaddle her in them for several months if needed and after that they will be wonderful regular blankets. They also wash and dry beautifully. They are well worth the money."
"Yolanda, mother of 2 babies who sleep well", Phoenix, Arizona
"We love this blanket! It is so soft and it is big enough to continue to swaddle my daughter as she grows. Washes great and keeps getting softer!"
Shea-mommy of two beautiful girls, Tulsa, Ok
A must have for peace of mind
"Both my children were premature and had Acid Reflux. They really help babies sleep. We ended up buying 5 blankets because we never wanted to be without one. They are perfect to put over the stroller and use on the floor for tummy time as well. I give these gifts to new mothers all the time!"
Holly, mother of two, Seattle, Wa.
this is THE best!!
"This is the only swaddler you need! It is lightweight and gets softer over time. We used this blanket to learn how to swaddle and now we can swaddle like the nurses did at the hospital. It is now her "lovey" blankie that goes with her everywhere!"
Megan, first time mom, south central Texas
I wish I had these blankets for my first baby!
"I love these blankets! My baby is 6 months now, and we still use our Swaddle blanket daily! Perfect for keeping her cozy in the car seat, great for "tummy time" at home and ideal for giving her shade when we're out for walks in the stroller. I love these blankets!!"
Mommy of Two, Los Angeles

I LOVE this Blanket!
"I love the material these blankets are made of. They are so soft and seem to just get softer the more I wash them. And the colors!! I want all of them!"
Abby Mom of three, Brigantine, NJ
THE BEST BLANKET!
"We bought this blanket for our newborn. Our son is long and we needed the 42" square. We've been VERY happy with this product. We bought 3 of these & are still using them 6 months later! Well worth the money!!"
Mom of a baby boy, California
Get this swaddler and get more sleep!
"Our 10-week-old is nursing and has never slept for more than 2-3 hours at a time at night. We had tried numerous ways to get her to sleep longer but nothing worked until we swaddled her with this blanket. The first night she slept for 7 hours in a row! Since then it has varied from 5.5 to 7 hours."
Never Thought We'd Sleep Again, Minnesota
"I started using this blanket and this one by far works for my son. He loves it and it is very big! I am actually getting ready to purchase another one so I have another on had when this one gets dirty! I HIGHLY recommend!!"
Tina, first time mother, Indiana
Definitely a must have!
"These really are great blankets, and they wash really well. I was given this blanket from the hospital as a take home gift and I really appreciate having it. The blanket with the instructions on it was a lifesaver, because my baby slept better when I was able to swaddle him like he had been swaddled at the hospital.
JRâ€™s Mom, Boise, ID
"Great for new parents, experienced parents and grandparents to remind them how to swaddle. Its nice size makes it perfect for newborns or older babies. Great idea to have swaddling instructions on the blanket."

every baby needs at least 2
"the only blanket that would contain our 14 pound 10 week old- a fantastic gift for a new mom"
Â a winner
"the best blanket you'll find for your baby. It's the biggest one I've been able to find, made good, great after washing - no fading, and just adorable. Great for swaddling in the beginning, especially if you've got a long baby like mine, and now has become the coziest blanket for bed and naps. gotten lots of compliments on it. unique and a necessity!"
Dana, new mom, upstate SC
"We received lots of blankets as gifts, but this one is by far the best for swaddling. We use it every day and take it everywhere with us. The dimensions are perfect, it is large enough that I can still swaddle my 15 lb, 25 in long baby, and they are really cute and comfy. I highly recommend this blanket!"

I'd be lost without these

carla, new mom of Lia, 3mos, Philadelphia
Â Â the BEST for swaddling
"When I started using the Ultimate Receiving Blanket, I learned what a difference they make! They are big enough they actually last beyond the first few weeks. The flannel is soft, the patterns adorable, and the blankets have lovely edging. All of these details add up. I didn't hesitate to stock a few more masculine blankets for the little boy that will be here in a few days."
Kyla, soon to be mother of 2, Phoenix, AZ
Great New Parent Gift
â€œThe Ultimate Receiving Blanket is a wonderful gift for new. Sleep deprived parents need help with remembering the new skills they have been taught for caring for their babies. This blanket is perfect for swaddling and has a tag that reminds parents how to swaddle. Great size blanket, lightweight breathable fabric.â€

Char, new mom, Minneapolis, MN
â€œThank you for making such a wonderful, beautiful blanket! My son loves to be swaddled and has helped him sleep well and through the night since he was 2 mos old. All the other swaddling blankets are too small! Thank goodness I found this! My son loved it the minute he was put in it and slept beautifully that night. I will buy more of these and also recommend them to other moms!â€
Darla, Palm Coast, Florida
â€œI bought 2 of your swaddle blankets for my daughter from Lula Sapphire (UK) and just wanted to let you know that they are brilliant.Â The perfect size, a wonderful choice of colours, they wash and tumble dry brilliantly and I only wish they'd been around when I had my first 2 children.Â They also make great presents.â€
