About Us

About Us

Lynette Damir, RN, Mom and Creative Director, founded SwaddleDesigns. The inspiration for SwaddleDesigns was sparked when Lynette visited families with new babies in their homes and she noticed the parents were very sleep deprived. They weren't swaddling and consequently, no one was getting much sleep. Parents weren't swaddling for two reasons. First, the blanket they were using was too small or too thick, and second, they could not remember how to make a good secure swaddle. The parents consistently asked her to share the secret of the hospital nurses - how to swaddle.

After researching the market, Lynette discovered there were no swaddling blankets available for purchase. Lynette used her medical background and design education from the Art Institute of Seattle to develop the Ultimate Swaddle® Blanket - large and square with swaddling instructions sewn to the edge of the blanket, so parents have an effective swaddling technique at their fingertips. SwaddleDesigns first customer was a major hospital that purchased 4,000 blankets! They understood the importance of swaddling and the educational value of Lynette‛s blanket. The Ultimate Swaddle was the first large square swaddling blanket on the market.

Supine swaddling is important because it helps babies transition from womb to world, reduces incidence of SIDS, helps babies sleep better and longer, and decreases awakenings due to the startle reflex. By helping parents master the art of swaddling, the Ultimate Swaddling Blanket is a great confidence builder for new parents.

Over the years, SwaddleDesigns product line has grown significantly with a focus on innovative, patented products. Lynette designs all of SwaddleDesigns products and exclusive prints, and she selects every component based on its color, texture, durability and quality. She designs with baby‛s best interest in mind and to help new parents.

Growth and Innovation

SwaddleDesigns continues to grow, innovate and invest. The SwaddleDesigns line includes many layette essentials including the Omni Swaddle Sack® with Adjustable Wrap, the Transitional Swaddle Sack®, the zzZipMe Sack® wearable blanket, pajama gowns and more.

Our commitment to innovation includes patents for the Omni Swaddle Sack and the Transitional Swaddle Sack. SwaddleDesigns global portfolio of patents include design and utility patents in the US, EU, UK, Korea, China, Japan, Australia. The Omni Swaddle Sack and the Transitional Swaddle Sack are best sellers that parents love because they are easy to use and help babies sleep better and longer.

Many hospitals are purchasing the Omni Swaddle Sack as a foundational component of their Safe Sleep programs. The Transitional Swaddle Sack has quickly become a bestseller because the unique design bridges the gap between a snug swaddle and a sleeveless wearable blanket, and is a safer option when baby shows signs of starting to roll over.

The Transitional Swaddle Sack is the easiest and safest way to transition baby from swaddle to sack. The Transitional Swaddle Sack has unique half-length sleeves with mitten cuffs. When the cuffs are closed the specially design sleeves provide partial suppression of the Moro (startle) reflex, yet allow baby enough mobility in the arms so that if baby were to roll over onto their tummy the baby can use their arms to push up to reposition their head to get access to air.

SwaddleDesigns Commitment to Quality

We manufacture our Ultimate Swaddle Blanket in Seattle, Washington using premium made in USA cotton flannel. Many corporate customers select SwaddleDesigns as a supplier for Welcome Baby Gifts because of domestic production capability and our commitment to quality.

SwaddleDesigns is Eco-Friendly

Our mission to help new parents has been expanded to include the mission to help Mother Earth. We are concerned that the earth is drowning in plastic - 8.3 billion tons of plastic per year, a number so large it's hard to comprehend. For perspective, consider that the annual production of plastic has surpassed the total weight of humanity. We have embraced the challenge and developed a best-of-class NextGen Hybrid Diaper with a focus on sustainability and reducing plastic and landfill waste.
