If I was a baby this is the swaddler I'd want to use!

If I was only small enough to climb into Dylan's Baby Bonkie you may not get me out! The moment you put your hands on Dylan's Baby Bonkie it's not even remotely a question as to why he absolutely adores the wrap style blanket. I love the Baby Bonkie quite simply because it looks cool. Dylan's Baby Bonkie has a cool very rock star looking cotton guitar print on the outside and a lime green minky material on the inside.

Lined with a really soft luxurious minky material it's incredibly soft to the touch, so much now that it's gotten warmer I put Dylan inside his Baby Bonkie only wearing a diaper. The wrap itself at first looks like any other swaddle type wrap but until you go to put the baby inside do you notice a few diffrences. The biggest problems we have with swaddlers is Dylan will fight the wrap for a few minutes if he is really upset when you put him in. If he wiggles and gets his shoulders free the next thing that comes out are his arms and hands which only defeats the purpose and does not do anything to calm him or to keep him napping. Actually without being swaddled Dylan will NOT sleep on his back at all. So for me to successfully get him to nap sitting inclined in his baby seat during the day, which is the best way for him to nap with his acid reflux, I have to get him swaddled and KEEP him swaddled. Unfortunately I can't seem to wrap him myself in a way that he won't wiggle out of so until we got our Baby Bonkie I usually just gave up on the whole idea of having him nap sitting inclined.

Baby Bonkie TallyThe biggest diffrence between the Baby Bonkie, and the main reason I think Dylan can not get out of this swaddle wrap verses the others we've tried, is the shape of the wrap around the shoulders. The shoulder area on this swaddle wrap is tailored so when you wrap your baby inside it curves around their shoulders and keeps those little wiggling arms firmly at their sides. Dylan will wiggle a few times when I put him in but within moments he gives up and usually passes out shortly after. Parents will love it as it's a totally fool proof way to swaddle, even Daddy's can do it with very little if any instruction. Just lay the baby down, tuck feet and legs inside the pouch, tighten the sides down with velcro and your done! It's also perfect for babysitters and grandparents! I should tell you guys that the Baby Bonkie is very generously sized so one size fits most babies from newborn to five months old. There is still a ton of room for Dylan to grow into down by his feet and the velcro around the chest is very adjustable so even chunkier babies will have no problems fitting into a Baby Bonkie!

The Baby Bonkie website appears to be down but you can still purchase Baby Bonkies on Amazon as well as on many other online retailers. Baby Bonkie was kind enough to send us a Baby Bonkie Tally, which has minky on the outside and inside, to give away as well.

The baby bonkie Tally is really cute. I would love to try this for Kimberly, she manages to squirm out of all her blankets at night and then screams bloody murder! It would be great to be able to keep her swaddled tight so maybe she'd sleep at night! telewis@charter.net

I really like the pattern of Baby Bonkie Hicks, but my favorite is the one you have Dylan wrapped in with the guitar print. (If I won it would be a gift for a very musical couple.)
