SwaddleDesigns® introduces SwaddleLite™.  SwaddleDesigns is proud to be selected by Dr. Karp, Author of The Happiest Baby on the Block, as a sponsor for his upcoming “Parents Night Out”.

SwaddleLite contains a set of 3 lightweight breathable openweave high quality cotton Marquisette Swaddling Blankets in a gift box.

SwaddleDesigns marquisette has a very soft hand.  SwaddleDesigns marquisette is custom made using superior quality cotton yarns created from long, smooth, high quality cotton.

Moms love SwaddleDesigns beautiful colors and attractive prints. 

SwaddleDesigns products are known for their great quality and long lasting value that moms and babies love and enjoy for years. SwaddleDesigns is also well respected by the medical community – often recommended by pediatricians, nurses, doulas, newborn care instructors.

SwaddleDesigns is proud to be selected by Dr. Karp, Author of The Happiest Baby on the Block, as a sponsor for his upcoming “Parents Night Out” theatrical event.  NCM Fathom, SwaddleDesigns and BabyCenter present a special live event, Parent’s Night Out with The Happiest Baby & Happiest Toddler, starring Dr. Harvey Karp, on Thursday, June 21 at 7:30 p.m. local time. Expecting moms and dads, parents of infants and toddlers, will want to visit their local movie theater to watch as Dr. Karp reveals the surprising tips and tricks that have made his celebrated books and DVDs among the top parenting guides in history. Audiences will enjoy live demonstrations, watch footage of parents in action, and take part in a hot-topic parent Q&A session. Families will learn simple solutions to help them raise happy, well-behaved young children – and get more sleep, too.  Tickets are on sale.

“I founded SwaddleDesigns with the desire to help new parents calm and comfort their babies so everyone could get more sleep. Nearly ten years ago, I met Dr. Karp and I was delighted to discover that we shared a common mission to help parents prevent exhaustion and sleep deprivation,” said Lynette Damir, RN, CEO and creative director of SwaddleDesigns. “It’s an honor to partner with Dr. Karp at the first-ever nationwide Parents Night Out cinema event.” 

SwaddleDesigns was founded by Lynette Damir, RN, Designer and Mom of two in 2002, and SwaddleDesigns was the first company to introduce the large square swaddling blanket to the US market and many markets around the world.  SwaddleDesigns is known for their premium quality fabric, fabulous colors and prints, and the innovative 123 Swaddle® instructional label that makes learning how to swaddle so easy. SwaddleDesigns versatile blankets come in a variety of weights and are perfect for many uses such as a privacy throw for breastfeeding moms, a tummy time play mat, a cover over the stroller.


Learn "How to Swaddle" on SwaddleDesigns' website, where you may also find more information regarding sleeping environments and the benefits of swaddling.

The SwaddleLite - Cute and Calm - Lavender consists of three marquisette swaddling blankets in a gift box.  The 46" x 46" marquisette swaddling blanket is a lightweight, breathable, open weave blanket suitable for warmer weather.  A signature of SwaddleDesigns' swaddling blankets is the easy to follow swaddling instructions sewn to the edge of the blanket.  The swaddling blanket may also be used for sunshield, tummy time, privacy throw for breastfeeding, light stroller blanket, and other uses.  Although, Baby Hsu has outgrown the swaddling stage, I still use the marquisette swaddling blanket for his naps, in the stroller, and even as a changing station when we're out.  The SwaddleLite makes a great gift because a parent needs at least three swaddling blankets for their child.


SwaddleDesigns SwaddleLite is a must-have for moms and makes an excellent gift for moms-to-be (HSUper Parents-Approved)!

BUY IT!  SwaddleDesigns SwaddleLite - Cute and Calm - Lavender may be purchased on their site for $40.00.

GIVEAWAY - Farm Rich 2 Coupons for Free Snacks and Appetizers! (CLOSED)





Farm Rich, headquarters on St. Simons Island (off the coast of Georgia), focuses on always being there for parents, with wholesome, easy-to-prepare snacks sure to please the entire family.  For over 25 years, Farm Rich has one goal in mind when making products - keep 'em happy.    


At the local supermarket I shop at, I wasn't able to find any of the Farm Rich products.  But, I did find a few at another supermarket.  The Cheese Sticks are made with 100% real mozzarella cheese with 0g trans fat per serving.  It is available in 10 oz. snack pack and 52 oz. value pack.  Cheese sticks were one of my childhood snacks that I enjoyed (although I typically do not eat cheese).  It's quick and easy to make - preheat oven to 450 degrees and it takes 10-11 minutes to heat half the bag or 13-15 minutes to heat the whole bag using a conventional oven and 17-18 minutes to heat half the bag in a toaster oven.  Another option would be to fry the cheese sticks at 350 degrees for 3-3:30 minutes.  The Marinara Stuffed Mozzarella Sticks is similar to the Cheese Sticks with the only difference being that the marinara sauce is already baked in.  I love how the bags are convenient and resealable.  Other Farm Rich's fan favorites include Mozzarella BitesMini Philly Cheese Steaks, and Mini Pizza Slices.

Baby Hsu (the picky eater) enjoys snacking on Farm Rich's Cheese Sticks and Marinara Stuffed Mozzarella Sticks (HSUper Parents-Approved)!

WIN IT!  Farm Rich has generously offered two (2) coupons for free snacks and appetizers ($6.99 value each) to a lucky HSUper Parents reader!
