Ok, seriously – how hot is it right now? I’m sitting here all sloth-like, refusing to dress the baby, eating cold grapes and moaning periodically. Ridiculous.
Anyway, a little while ago I was sent an ErgoPouch ErgoCocoon AIR swaddle to try out on the Veggie Baby and one to give away to a reader. I was terribly excited, I loved the summery-light bamboo feel and the snugness of this swaddle and was dying to squeeze my tiny caterpillar into it.
The only problem was, I’d given birth to a heifer, and she just did not fit into this 2-6month (5-9 kilos) size. Not so tiny after all! The lovely crew taking care of their PR (Hi Kate!) offered a different item in return, so unfortunately I haven’t been able to review this product for you. However, a blogging buddy of mine, Sara, has and you can find it here. She even did a video, clever girl!
So if you’re sad about wrapping your baby in the usual muslin in this sweltering heat, and you’d prefer something lighter but with the same amount of snuggability, then enter the competition below. You can enter even if you know someone who is going to pop any day now and want to give the best present ever – solid sleep! Wrapping was the best thing I ever did.
I like ErgoPouch because it’s an Australian company. They have organic sleepwear for babies and toddlers made from eco-friendly, breathable materials like bamboo, alpaca and organic cotton.
They’re all hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, anti-static and suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin – it’s excellent for eczema, I’m told, as it prevents babies from scratching. Yay!
This particular product, the ErgoCocoon AIR is the world’s thinnest baby swaddle. It’s seamless, zip-and velcro-free and made of stretch bamboo fabric.
It is valued at $24.95, and if you’d like to win one, you only need to do two things:
1. Like me on Facebook, if you don’t already. (I know, I’m so needy!).
2. Leave a comment on this post about what lullaby you sing to your tinies. I make mine up as I go along so they’re always different… but I like to see what other people do!
