When you finally find a way to get your sweet new baby to love their own space and sleep somewhere other than in your arms, it’s a magical moment. For me, that magical moment came when my oldest daughter was six months old. I had six months of snuggling her soft newborn goodness all day long. Every nap was done while either sleeping on top of me or in a carrier strapped onto my body. Of course it was wonderful but it was also exhausting. Eventually our baby started sleeping with a lovey and transitioned to daytime naps in her crib. Six years later, baby #2 loves that same lovey, the one we only have one of that came from an unknown baby shower guest many years ago, equally. Imagine if we had two identical lovies and how easy it would be to simply throw one in the wash, while the other is snuggled by baby. My double lovey baby gift will help a friend not panic over every moment the beloved lovey is lost. In the meantime, I’ll be washing my sweet snuggle bug’s favorite lovey with Snuggle® PLUS SuperFresh™. Only Snuggle® delivers Snuggly Softness™ for her favorite lovey.
In the chaos of new motherhood almost eight years ago, I remembered we had received the cutest flat pink horse guaranteed to be snuggled by baby and turn into a comfort lovey. My daughter quickly became attached to her lovey and slept with it for several years. I gave no second thought to offering that same lovey to our new baby. She quickly decided her “horsie” would go everywhere with her. They would take naps, play at the park, go to daycare, visit the bakery and do all the wonderful things a creative one year old would do with her soft snuggly best friend, “horsie”.
For well over a year I have watched as my sweet baby girl has dragged poor “horsie” through the dirt and every other germ infested surface imaginable. I wash it every opportunity I get but she has is very quick to notice if her lovey is missing. Everyday is a new day hoping we do not permanently lose the lovey her big sister was gifted eight years ago.
September 9th was national Teddy Bear Day making it a very special month for Snuggle®. For the 2nd straight year, they launched the #ShareABear campaign to help make the world a softer place, one teddy bear at a time. Along with Snuggle donating 5,000 bears to children in need because something as small as a teddy bear can brighten someone’s day, I created the double lovey baby gift to help new parents alleviate the struggle of losing a favorite lovey.
Although my sweet baby girl is not quite sure about trading her “horsie” for the Snuggle® bear, she has definitely shared some awe inspiring snuggly moments with him. I’m sharing her many favorite Snuggle® bear moments at the Snuggle® Bear Den, a place where parents can explore tips and tricks, offers and prizes.
