November Giveaways: Snuggle Me Organic
When Seth and I started thinking about what Talie’s sleeping arrangement would be, we expected we’d put her in the bassinet at the end of the bed. When we got home, that bassinet felt like it was a million miles away. I drastically underestimated the attachment and protectiveness I’d feel for her. Seth and I both felt like we needed her right by our side so we could open our eyes and immediately see that she was okay. Like most new parents, we were constantly checking on her to make sure she was still breathing. Needless to say, that bassinet at the end of our bed has turned into a laundry basket.
Thankfully, we registered for a Snuggle Me Organic when I was pregnant and someone got it for us so we had a backup to the bassinet plan. I didn’t know much about the Snuggle Me when I registered – I just knew I wanted something that would help us co-sleep safely with her in case co-sleeping is what we ended up choosing to do. I thought having something to help create her own space within our bed would not only be safer, but would also help ease any anxiety Seth and I might have about having her in our bed. The Snuggle Me had excellent reviews on Amazon so that’s what we went with.
Turns out, the Snuggle Me has probably been the best gift we’ve received. It does exactly what the name describes – it snuggles Talie in and makes her feel secure thanks to the patented design of the center sling that pulls in the sides when she lays in it. Those sides also create a little barrier between us and her that would make it really difficult for us to roll over on her. It’s also natural and organic, which is really important to us.
Tal slept through the night for the first time the night before she turned two months old and started consistently sleeping 12 hours a night about three weeks ago when she turned three months. Before that, she’d typically only wake up once or twice to eat and then would go right back to sleep. Who knows if her sleeping will stay this way or change. I honestly think we got lucky and happened to be given a baby that’s naturally a good sleeper, but I also think the Snuggle Me has had a large role in comforting her, soothing her, and helping her learn how to sleep in long stretches.
Today, I’m giving away a Snuggle Me Organic to one of you and I hope it serves you as well as it’s served us!
Sleeping is one of the many controversial topics when it comes to parenting. Ultimately, everyone has to figure out what works for them and I don’t think anyone should be judged for the decision they make (or any parenting decision they make as long as they aren’t harming their child). This has worked extremely well for us so I’m simply sharing in case the Snuggle Me might help any sleep deprived or expecting parents out there!
