I'm currently pregnant with my second baby and have been looking for some new wraps. The ones I had for Sophie when she was a baby were beautiful, but they were quite small and I could only use them for a few months before she would work her way out of them.
These ones are so much bigger and the patterns are just gorgeous. I chose the alpha bit swaddles which are really nice unisex ones using bright colours - orange, green, blue, red etc.
Now the new baby isn't due till June, so Sophie and I practiced wrapping them on her teddy. It turned out well, here is a pic:
I originally tried wrapping Sophie, but as you can see, she's very grown up now, so that didn't really work out!
They have instructions on the back on how to swaddle your baby, which came in handy for me because I had never used any this big before, plus after a year, I couldn't even remember how I used to wrap Sophie. Funny how quickly you forget how to do the baby stuff!
And their website is really good, you can browse and buy online, plus it has a learning section on how and why to swaddle. I love the page with pics of celebrities using them with their babies. I'm a big Jessica Alba and Nicole Richie fan so that was cool :)
All in all, I'm really happy with these swaddles. They work well, are easy to care for, and the colours and prints are the nicest I have seen so far. I'll be using them as wraps, pram covers, floor covers, and probably tons of other things. I'll be sneaking back onto the website to look at the washcloth sets as well :)
Here's a link to their website if you would like to take a look.
