My cousin, Hannah, created a pattern for this adorable and very functional swaddler. I was lucky enough to be a volunteer for a trial run of the pattern. It is very easy to make and even easier to use. I really wish I would have had one when Donevan was a newborn. He loved to be swaddled and this would have been so much easier than using a blanket. You just put the baby in the middle under the blanket part of it and tuck their arms in. Then you tie the side flaps in the front. Nice and Cozy. And when they get older you can tie it with their arms out. You can go to Hannah's blog for more details or to buy one from her shop.
Thanks Hannah for the opportunity to try this out.
