I have been waiting a long time to reveal this to the world. And now here it is! The SnuggleU! This is an item my husband invented when Kaitlyn was a newborn. We used it with both girls while they were newborns, and I am convinced it is a big reason they were such great sleepers. The beauty of the SnuggleU is that the baby can sleep nice and snug but still be in her own bed. Here is our story taken from our website:

We were delighted when our second child was born, but frightened when she was placed in the NICU. She was release a few days later--happily there was nothing wrong with her!



But we were still shaken from the incident. While in the NICU, the nurses noticed she had silent reflux. That coupled with our NICU scare (and the fact that she was born following the loss of a brother due to stillbirth at 20 weeks) made us very protective of her.


Nate had an idea to help her feel safe and cozy while sleeping. He went to the craft store and rummaged through his garage to create this for his little girl. The SnuggleU was born only a few days after Kaitlyn was.
Kaitlyn was a great sleeper. I had her sleep in a bassinet in our room as well as the crib in her room. We kept the SnuggleU in the bassinet. She always slept better in the bassinet. It took until our next child was born for me to realize she slept better there because the SnuggleU was there.
When our next child was born, we pulled out the SnuggleU. We had loved it before and were sure we would love it again. McKenna slept even better than Kaitlyn did! Being a little older and a little wiser, I guess, I realized the SnuggleU had a lot to do with the great sleeping and made sure she had it in any bed. I now packed the SnuggleU with it everywhere she slept.
 
It was then we realized this was a product that other parents would love. So after much time in improving on the original idea, we now bring you, the SnuggleU.
 

 
So how does the SnuggleU work? You swaddle your baby and do whatever you normally do during your sleep routine. You then place baby in the bed and slide the SnuggleU up to her body so it goes under her feet. Push her feet up and scrunch her legs up like they would have been in the womb. Now she is all cuddled, cozy, and ready for sleep! The SnuggleU is flexible so you can shape it for your individul baby. Here is a photo of McKenna as a newborn using it:
 

Each SnuggleU is covered in white cotton. We also have available pillowcases to cover the SnuggleU and keep it clean. We custom designed the case to cover our SnuggleU. There are no zippers and no buttons--just fabric and thread. Here is a SnuggleU with a pillowcase:




 
 
More pics? Here you go. The SnuggleU works really well in a crib. Cribs can be kind of large for a newborn, and the SnuggleU helps make baby cozy. Here is McKenna:
 



And you can't see the SnuggleU well in this photo, but it is the best one I have of Kaitlyn. You can kind of see it in the bottom left corner:

 
With our SnuggleU, I stopped using it with each girl sometime close to three months old. That is the age each girl started to want to sleep with her legs stretch out instead of scrunched in. They would just push the SnuggleU down with their legs, so I took it out of the crib at that time. The SnuggleU is made for newborns. Here is a picture of my 3 month old niece, Keira, modeling the SnuggleU:

  • One entry per comment.
  • Up to seven entries per person.
  • You must fulfill the rules of each entry for each entry to count. If I see the entry is not valid (did not meet entry requirements), I will remove your entry. Trust me, I check.

  • Once the winner is announced, you will have one week to contact me or another winner will be chosen.
Good luck everyone!

Our first was in the NICU and had a sleeper just like this. We actually brought it home and have used it on all three of our children. I'd never seen anything like it in anyone's home and still haven't to this day. I'm so glad to see you're going to offer these to the public. They are awesome!!!
