Kids Health, from Nemours posted an article on “Sleep and Your 8- to 12-Month-Old”. If you are a parent struggling with how to help your child develop healthy sleep patterns and/or how to approach sleep issues your baby may be having, take a few minutes to review the article by clicking the title above. It covers the following topics:
* How Long Will My Baby Sleep?
* Where and How Should My Baby Sleep?
* Encouraging Sleep
* When to Call the Doctor
In the article, Kids Health stated, “If your baby has a favorite toy or blanket that you feel is safe to have in the crib, it can be left for comfort. This is when “transitional” objects become important to babies. They help your baby transition from being with you most of the time to having some time away from you and becoming more independent.”
If you’re looking for a security blanket or any other unique baby blanket, browse our retail site at blanketmybaby.com. With security blankets, it is recommended that you buy a few of the same blanket so that your baby will always have one available. This way if one is in the wash, gets lots or is left at daycare your baby will still have one to establish the feelings of familiarity and comfort.Filed under Baby Blankets, Info | Tags: 8 to 12 month old, article, Baby Blankets, baby sleep advice, security blanket, security blankets, Unique Baby Blankets | Comment (0)

Our last blanketmybaby.com blog post introduced nursing covers. Well, let us introduce you to another hand-freeing product that can be used with all your blankets and could even help you create your own nursing cover.
One super-simple fix that’s used by trendy, thrifty parents are blanket clips and snaps. This relatively inexpensive cure-all solves the problem of only having two arms, two hands and one you! If you have trouble keeping blankets on your baby and off the ground, you may want to do a little research into some of the products below. Blanket clips, snaps, straps and bungies help keep blankets in the stroller or car seat or covering mom while she’s nursing. Clips can also help you create a quick sun shield to protect your baby from harmful rays. These products have so many possibilities–just be creative and you’ll have a homemade nursing cover, stroller blanket or car seat cover. If you have a unique use for blanket clips, let Blanket My Baby and our readers in on your genius by posting a comment.
Blanket clips are available in a variety of colors, patterns and sizes that will coordinate with the accessories and blankets you already own. They are sure to add style and functionality without putting too large a dent in your wallet. They make great baby shower gifts.
Check out some of the products we found that are available at online boutiques and stores:

My best friend recently had her first baby and has more blankets than we can count, including some from blanketmybaby.com. This is a good thing because her little guy is just over one month old and uses a lot of blankets. He’s almost always wrapped in one and they get dirty quickly. The times I see her use blankets most are for swaddling and nursing.
She’s struggled with the initial ups-and-downs of breastfeeding, just like most other first-time moms, but is coming out victorious. I have noticed though, as she feeds (which it seems she is doing the majority of the time), the blanket she uses to cover with needs a lot of adjusting or often falls off completely.
I thought I had brainstormed the next blanket manufacturing idea–but it seems I’m a little late. Nursing covers and nursing blankets are quite popular and utilize clips or are of large size to help breastfeeding moms stay covered. They’re modest, typically easy to use and can be fashionable! Well, if I can’t be the one to come up with it, check out some other great companies that have. You can purchase covers with straps attached or just the clips/straps.
Clip’n'Feed is a Multi-Use product with custom made detachable clips and a Neck Strap, offering “2 Ways to Clip’n'Feed®” without exposing the mother to a nosey public while the neckline allows for direct eye contact with your baby. While our competitors are only offering single-use covers, Clip’n'Feed® solves four problems in one. Clip’n'Feed® also is a Stroller Cover, Car Seat Cover, and Baby Carrier Wrap. No other cover has “Stroller Straps” to tie down to the stroller and protect baby from the weather. (according to http://www.clipnfeed.com/)
“Cover Me” Nursing Cover Clips by Little Carr. Little Carr offers a really well-made and high quality “Cover Me” clip in several different prints. Unlike other breastfeeding clips that have metal clips, the Cover Me Nursing Clip’s hardware is a durable plastic clip that is very wash and wear friendly and the clips are adjustable so that the breastfeeding mom can adjust the strap to her desired length. Need an extra reason to buy? Your Cover Me Nursing Clip can also be used in a pinch as a bib cover – simply attach the clip to any cloth or paper napkin and adjust around your baby’s, infant’s, or toddler’s neck during dining. (according to http://www.nursingcovers.com/)

Wearable baby blankets, including sleep sacks and baby sleeping bags are convenient for parents and comfortable for babies. Typically the blankets keep the feet tucked in and zip, button, snap or velcro up the front. They solve the age-old problem of babies kicking off the blanket and waking up cold or tangled. They also help reduce the risk of SIDS by keeping blankets away from the face. Sleep sacks offer a great transition phase from swaddling to big-kid blanket.
Sleep sacks can be loose or tight at the bottom. Some allow wiggle room for the feet and others function more like a swaddling blanket. As for the arms – sleep sacks can be sleeveless, short-sleeved, long-sleeved or may tuck arms in with a swaddling feature.
When deciding on a sleep sack, it’s important to consider the temperature of the baby’s room and the season of the year. Sleep sacks are available in many fabrics and may range from thick winter fleece to thin summer-appropriate cotton mesh.
Blanketmybaby.com carries several varieties of baby sleeping bags and sleep sacks in colors including blue, pink, green, yellow, white and more. BMB offers several unique SwaddleDesigns fuzzy sleep sacks with satin trim and various Aden and Anais cotton muslin baby sleeping bags. BMB also sells the handmade Sleep Pea Pods, which could be used as a swaddle blanket or sleep sack.

In doing some late night research the other night, I came across the Sleep Pea Pod Swaddle Blanket. This is not your ordinary swaddle blanket. It’s a great solution to offering parents the comfort that a swaddling blanket gives a newborn without the difficulty in actually swaddling a baby!
This blanket claims to be the Swaddle Less blanket. It stands as an alternative to swaddling blankets and sleep sacks so your baby can sleep well, and so can you! As you place the blanket on your baby, the Sleep Pea Pod takes advantage of fabric pockets that catch your baby’s arms, while giving them plenty of feed wiggle room. Also, you can use the blanket in arms free mode.
The blankets run from $25-$30. Standard blankets are sized to fit most infants from 0-9 months, transitioning to arms free mode.
I absolutely love this blanket, and it seems like a great idea that can compete with the Miracle Blanket or SwaddleMe. The simplicity of it is wonderful, and if parents and babies are happy, then it’s a winner. You can find it at our store with our other swaddle blankets.
Here’s a great video to show you how it’s done.Filed under Baby Blankets | Tags: Baby Blankets, sleep pea pod, swaddle blanket, Swaddle Blankets, swaddling blankets, Unique Baby Blankets | Comments (2)
