I thought that after having two children I would be a pro when it came to choosing baby gear and accessories but after stopping by a few baby stores I was overwhelmed with the amount available. There are so many more products available now than there was when my middle son was born almost 7 years ago. Below are a few gift ideas for new moms, including my favorite The Miracle Blanket.
Gift Ideas for New Moms & Baby:
If you’ve ever held a newborn you know how much they can wiggle around. For the first few weeks of baby boy’s life we attempted to swaddle him during bedtime using receiving blankets. The nurses always got a secure fit while we were in the hospital but at home he would always wiggle his arms free. It was a struggle during the night and I often gave up. Thanks to the Miracle Miracle Blanket® we can get the perfect swaddle every time, even in the dark! I can do it, my husband can do it, even the kids can do it. Since using the Miracle Blanket I have noticed that Baby Boy is less fussy when I put him to bed, he now very rarely fusses and is calm. It’s like turning the switch off the second he is swaddled. While he still doesn’t sleep through the night, being swaddled does help him sleep better.
The Miracle Blanket it is a safe and secure alternative to traditional swaddling, there’s no buttons, straps, Velcro®, knots, or zippers. There are a number of fashionble colors and patterns to chose from and is one size fits all up to 14 weeks. It’s made of of 100% soft breathable cotton knit and allows freedom of movement from the hips down.

Belly Bandit Original:
