On the weekend I started organising all the newborn clothes, beanies and blankets in the nursery, I like being prepared! Of course I still have some pieces from the other children but I have also picked up some new goodies, simply because I can’t resist myself. One of my favourite things to buy for babies is a gorgeous wrap, I just love a swaddled baby and I think you can never have enough wraps.

You probably know Australian label gr8x from its nappy bag range, but I know many of you haven’t discovered the gr8x wrap collection yet. Gr8x wraps are available in a lovely selection of boys, girls and unisex colours and prints, I doubt you’ll be able to stop at just one. You don’t have to because the wraps are sold in packs of 2 and at just $34.95 they are well priced (great gift idea too!). If I knew I was having a girl I would definitely add this Dizzy Circles Pink design to my hospital bag, very cute.

Each wrap is finished with a matching ribbed trim and rounded corners for a neat and classy look (no ‘pointy’ fabric corners near your baby’s face). The medium weight makes them warm enough for winter and cool enough for summer. You’ll find that you will use your wraps for much more than the bedtime routine, like as an easy cover up for in the pram or car, a quick clean play area for on the floor or even a breastfeeding cover.

Now if you are a swaddler you will be well aware that it is not only the print or the material that makes a perfect wrap, size is very important. There is nothing as annoying as buying a packet of gorgeous wraps only to find you can’t even get them around your newborn once. The gr8x Double Stretch Swaddling Wraps are designed to be super stretchy, the cotton fabric measures 84cm x 90cm yet it stretches to a generous 145cm which is a very good size!
