When given the opportunity to review the SwaddleDesigns® Swaddle Duo™ I was reminded of the time I used to swaddle my babies…I wish I would have had this product back then! So because forcing my 2 year old to use the swaddle would be torture for all involved (LOL), I asked my good friend, Erin, to do the review because she has a precious newborn, named Rowan. So the review will actually be the opinion of Erin. 🙂
SwaddleDesigns has so graciously offered one of our Fabulous Teach me 2 Save Followers a SwaddleDesigns® Swaddle Duo™

With the SwaddleDuo, parents will be prepared for a variety of environmental settings – cool, moderate and warm…

My first impression of the SwaddleDesigns blankets was that they are absolutely HUGE. They work well for swaddling, but they could also work great for a baby blanket in general. The duo kit, came beautifully packed with 2 blankets. One is a flannel-like material for cold weather, and the other is more lightweight for hot climates (such as Florida). In my opinion the lightweight material was wonderful because my little one is a hotbox and sweats with any heavy material. On each blanket, swaddling instructions are conveniently sewn into a tag so you’ll never forget how to do it. All in all, this is a wonderful product. You can use it when your baby is still being swaddled, but you can also use it as a regular blanket when finished with the swaddling phase. LOVE it!
