Review: "Snugglebundl" baby carrying blanket

I admit then when I first saw the Snugglebundl I wasn't convinced. My first thought was "another gimmick designed to convince new parents they need it when they don't just to make them part with their cash" but I was so very very wrong!

One idea behind the Snugglebundl is to be able to lift your sleeping baby and move them from one place to another - like from pram to car seat, or car seat to house, etc. without disturbing them. It sounds like such a simple idea. BUT... If you have a baby who is not easily settled you will understand how important it is to be able to get them from A to B without waking them!

Now, our Freddie is not the happiest of travellers. He loves to be in a sling, but does not rate being in a pram or the car seat. He tends to scream if he is placed in either of those while he is awake. I have learned to feed him and coax him to sleep before going on any car journey or attempting a walk out with the pram, but the very action of moving him from his moses basket to his pram or car seat tends to wake him.

We tried the Snugglebundl with trepidation. It didn't look strong enough to carry the weight of our 97th percentile baby, but the labelling assures us it is suitable for babies up to approx 6 months (66lb / 30k) and he is fine in it. I wrapped Freddie in the Snugglebundl to give him his feed & winding, laid him in his moses basket to drift off, and then lifted him while still wrapped. I carried him out of the house and into the car. He hardly murmured! It is designed to allow you to fasten your baby into their car seat while still wrapped - and comes with instructions on how to do it safely. And he SLEPT!

Snugglebundl Review on
Now we use it all the time when we go out in the car, I find it especially useful when I go out in the evening to take my older kids to and from their clubs and meetings as I can quickly and easily bring Freddie in and out of the car while I drop off or collect his brothers. It's great for the supermarket because the little flat baby seats on the trollies are hard and cold, and the Snugglebundl makes them much more cozy. I rarely use the pram - preferring to babywear - but when we do we use the Snugglebundl and he has been much happier in it. It's great to be able to move him around without disturbing him. The Snugglebundl is soft and warm so he is lovely an cozy in it. It's also machine washable (good job with a baby who spits up and occasionally has a leaky cloth nappy).

There are also the benefits of having a handy blankie for breastfeeding, whether you want to use a cover for modesty or simply to keep warm. It can also be used to rock your baby and sooth them - it actually is that strong ( we tested it over the bed, just in case ).

I can say that in the space of a week I went from thinking "What a gimmick" to "I wish I had had one of these with my other 3 babies!" and I cannot recommend them highly enough!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
