Win Love to Dream swaddles and Sleep Bag, and Tommee Tippee Moda soothers worth R1 500

November 25, 2016

Many moms would swear that part of this week's giveaway is a "lifesaver", "sleep saver" and "sanity saver". Such are some of the reviews of the Love to Dream Up Swaddle Ups, which I wrote about here, and which I'm now using with my newborn baby.


My baby is sleeping so well in it at night that I wouldn't dare use anything else at the moment for fear of ruining the good sleep stretches. The few times that I have swaddled her during the day, she's managed to get her arms out, so the Love to Dream swaddle blanket suits her brilliantly as she loves having her arms up.

This week, distributors Candid Baby are giving away one Love to Dream Swaddle Ups (in small, medium or large), one Nuzzlin baby or toddler Sleep Bag, and two sets of Tommee Tippee Moda soothers for boys or girls. The whole hamper is worth R1 930.

Here's what you need to know about the products:

Swaddle Up

Love To Dream's "Swaddle UP" has all the benefits of traditional swaddling, whereby gentle pressure to the joints and muscles helps to soothe your baby and helps them sleep. However, according to Love To Dream, the up position has the following benefits:

  • Allows your baby to self-soothe
  • Aids baby's natural sleep position
  • May impede your baby rolling




The Nuzzlin is made from light and highly breathable cotton for more comfortable day and night sleeps. 

It's hypo-allergenic, keeps your child comfortably cool, is gentle on your child's sensitive skin, and has plenty of stretch for a comfy fit.


Moda soothers

These silicone soother from Tommee Tippee have a symmetrical orthodontic nipple specially designed to help optimise baby acceptance.

It has a classic shield style with a pretty and modern design.screen-shot-2016-10-10-at-12-19-53-pm

To enter to win

Simply comment below, mention what you love most about any of the giveaway products (there's no right or wrong here), and you'll be entered into the draw. 

The giveaway closes on Monday December 5 at 9am, after which the winner will be announced on the Rattle and Mum Facebook page, and then emailed. Please note this giveaway is open to South African residents only, and the prizes cannot be exchanged for cash or anything else in the distributor's range.

    I love the Nuzzlin for its light andΒ highly breathable cotton for more comfortable day and night sleeps.Β 
    It’s hypo-allergenic, keeps your child comfortably cool, is gentle on your child’s sensitive skin, and has plenty of stretch for a comfy fit.
    My daughter takes after her daddy in the sense that her natural body temperature is hot. She kicks off blankets in the middle of the night and then wakes up with a start. She also has sensitive skin and is prone to allergies. The Nuzzlin is perfect for her.

    Our Rainbow is 2weeks old now….it’s been a nightmare swaddling him. His hands pop right back out and YES up in the air like an army commander *sigh* and then they are sooo cold through out as we battle to keep even the tiniest gloves on him. This would help since it has considered such babies who shoot up their tiny hands
