So a few weeks before Mr. Chombie was born (have I explained how Chombie became his nickname? Charlie the Burrowing Wombat became Chombat the Wombat which became Chombie Wombie which became just Chombie for short because that's super normal), when Freya of Cotton & Laden was all "Hey, do you want a special treat that will help your baby not to punch himself in the face?", I responded with a most enthusiastic "I am want all the treasures this very instant!"
And lickety split an absolutely adorable weighted blanket arrived in the mail.
|My sweet boy at 8 days old with his magic blanket|
Like all baby blankets, these provide warmth and comfort. But our weighted blankets help soothe your little ones and keep them sleeping longer. Use these when your baby is ready to sleep as a gentle transition to nap times and bed times. The light and evenly distributed weight acts like a mother's hand on your baby's chest and keeps your baby feeling cozy. (read more here)
Geeeee. Neeeeee. Us.
The blanket is really well made, the fabric has a high thread count for durability, and it's really easy to care for: machine wash, tumble dry. Super-dee-duper important, friends. SUPER.DEE.DUPER.

And you wanna know something that is tres, tres, tres amazing? Probably the most amazing part of this entire enterprise? Freya's business is not-for-profit. All money, aside from operating costs, is donated to Save the Storks, a beautiful pro-life organization that provides mobile medical units which offer free pregnancy tests and ultrasound services to women.
I know. Big wow.

Now I've never not had this blanket with this baby, but he really is an incredibly good napper when we use it. And as of last week last week, he's been sleeping for (here comes the jinxing, I just know it) eight entire hours (!!!). In a row (!!!). During the night (!!!).
I can't make promises, people, but you know it can't hurt to try.
Wanna get yourself one of these lovely blankets? Wanna get one for someone else? Wanna order one just so Freya can make another donation to Save the Storks? Snatch one up at Cotton & Laden and use code chombieonthe8th for free shipping.
