Candide Baby provided products for review; all opinions are our own.
In case you missed our big announcement, we’re pregnant! Alex and La are expecting their first child which means Steve and I are about to become grandparents! We’ve been having so much fun preparing for this new little one, but there are so many products available in the infant marketplace; it’s a bit daunting.
Recently we were introduced to a leading European line of juvenile products called Candide Baby. This French-designed baby gear is practical, but beautiful because they believe every child deserves the best. They’ve debuted their high-quality baby products here in the US, and they sent us a few to checkout.
Candide Baby Luxury Swaddling Blanket
The Candide Luxury Swaddling Blanket is soft and well made. The armpits have a soft lining for extra comfort, and the blanket can be used to completely wrap the baby, with legs out on hot days, and even with one or both arms free. I love the versatility and that it adheres to the safer sleeping recommendations for babies in that it’s worn in place of loose blankets in the crib which can lead to suffocation. This swaddling blanket is available in White, Grey, or Hazel for $19.99.
Candide Comfort Mat Changing Pad
No one likes to change diapers, but it helps if it’s comfortable for both you and the baby. The Candide Comfort Mat Changing Pad is portable, lightweight, soft, and comfy. It can turn any flat surface into a place to take care baby’s of business thanks to its non-skid bottom which happens to have an adorable print. It’s generously sized and can be used for children up to 2 years old. The white terrycloth liner is washable and held in place with hook and loop tape (it doubles as a bath towel).
The changing pad has padded sides and a safety belt to help keep baby from rolling off, but always keep one hand on the baby during changes to be safe. The changing pad’s cover zips off and is machine washable. The pad retails for $59.99.
