Kinley is Coming: Baby Ota Review & Giveaway (US Only)

I swaddle my little ones to sleep.  I didn’t on the first two of my kids and I spent many nights wondering why I didn’t get to sleep and why my babies wouldn’t sleep for me.  Then I found swaddle blankets with my other two and sleep was our best friend.  We used a popular brand of blanket that was fantastic and so awesome I couldn’t believe it.  I got to thinking though that I would love something a litte looser that we can use more when in the stroller, bassinet etc. through the day to keep her warm without having a tight swaddle.  I found the Baby Ota and am absolutely thrilled because it is perfect.

Now keep in mind that Kinley is not here yet so I have not actually tested it with her but I am very excited and already have visions of wrapping her and laying her in the bassinet part of her stroller (review coming).  To use the Baby Ota you simply lay the baby on top of the pillow/blanket, flip one corner over the baby, flip the bottom up and then flip the other corner.  Then you flip the ties up and tie the strings to ensure the baby stays in.  This will be awesome to ensure that she is kept in and covered on the cool evenings and keep the bugs out most importantly.

One thing I was most worried about was how do I wash this, we all know babies spit up and poop through and I needed to know that I could clean it with ease.  Well with the thickness I thought it would take hours to dry but then I realized that to wash it you simply unzip the zipper, take out the pillow and wash the cover.  Easy peasy and I love that hte Baby Ota is made from 100% eco-friendly bamboo and hand selected cotton blends so I can be comfortable having this against my newborns skin.

The Baby Ota is perfect for babies from newborn all the way up to 25 lbs.  I know that if Kinley is anything like her big sister was then she will be able to use this til she is 3 haha.

The Baby Ota can be purchased for $59.00 and if you buy two then you get free shipping.

Baby Ota is going to give one of my lucky readers a Baby Ota of their own (ARV $59)
