Luxury Wearable Blankets For Baby Are A Reality With Gunapod

Luxury Wearable Blankets For Baby Are A Reality With Gunapod

 A review by My Sparkling Life

The days of adding blankets to cribs are long gone…we all know keeping a blanket out of the crib reduces SIDS. If you live in a house like mine where even you are cold most of the time, how do you keep baby warm without them suffocating? Wearable Blankets have been the key for a few years now and Gunamuna has taken them to a luxury level with their Gunapods.

Luxuary Wearable Blankets For Baby Are A Reality With Gunapod

Extra lush and snuggly, our new Luxury Duvet Sack provides your baby with the ultimate sleep experience. With super-soft, silky viscose from bamboo that envelops premium fill for extra warmth, it feels like a down comforter. Plus all the exclusive features that have made Gunapod the choice of moms. You’ll love it so much, you’ll wish we had one in your size.

I actually do wish they made them in my size! We might have just spent half of our review time snuggling with it…it’s really that soft! The Gunapod is designed with a 4 way zipper (we’ll talk about in a moment) & snap closures on the shoulders. These features make it super easy to get on and off a wiggly baby. I love the Zip garages that provide added protection for baby’s skin (the little flaps of fabric over the zipper pull).

The Gunapods WONDERZiP® is a 4-way all around U zipper that really makes life easier. With this design it provides easier diaper change & with it’s sleeveless design it enables you to regulate baby’s body temperature for continual comfort — ensuring healthy airflow. The generous fit provides baby with plenty of space to fold legs + spread out, move arms freely & the roomy Gunapod sack can’t be kicked off. That means baby stays comfortable and safe all night long.

All of these features is why Gunapod is a top pick for this years Baby Shower Gift Guide! Now…if someone could get to making me some sort of mermaid blanket out of this plush fabric, that would be great! Mumpod perhaps? 🙂

Whats in a Name?

If you’ve had a baby, or lets be honest, a long living pet breed or ever bought a boat, picking a name is no small task! There’s so many things to consider…Is it too popular or too “unique”?  Is there a nickname or will you use just the full name? Will the name work for an adult too or does it feel too babyish?  What will the monogram be…does it spell something inappropriate or weird that may become an unwanted nickname? Is it too short or too long? Does the name flow with the other names in your family? Will you love the name forever and ever? GAH!!!!!! So.Much.Pressure! Asking friends and family can be helpful but sometimes that backfires too…everyone has their opinion or knows of someone with that name and their opinion of the name may be clouded because of the person they knew.

But at least we have ALL been there at least once! And sometimes waiting until you meet your new addition helps make choosing their name a little easier. Aanndd sometimes that complicates things because you are on a deadline for paper work.

At Gunamuna, we struggled with this too. We are moms, we are pet owners, but also, when we make a new product, we have to name it. We created our Luxury Duvet Gunapods, and because we were SO excited about them we were at a loss for the perfect name and so we named them what they are: Pink Hearts, Blue Stars, and Alphabets. All are fine names. Short and to the point, but we decided we need to punch things up a bit and find some names that really truly fit them. Our fleece have names: Blueberry, Carrot, Charcoal, Chocolate, Cocoon, Pink Peppermint. Why should they have all the fun? Unlike with naming humans, pets and boats, we can change their names even though they are many months old. And unlike baby naming, we actually DO want your help! In honor of Valentines Day, w recently we asked our Instagram fans for some names for our Pink Hearts and this is what they came up with:

“Sweetheart”       “Carry your heart”      “Lots of Love “

“Smitten”          “Love at First Night”      “We Heart Sleep”

So many good options! How will we ever decide? We would LOVE for you to vote for your favorite or toss one of your own ideas into the ring!  We can not wait to see which name will win!

Mommies With Cents: Gunapod Luxury Duvet for Baby: Review & #Giveaway

We LOVE this review from Mommies with Cents! We can not get over these adorable  photos of this blogger’s tiny 2 week old niece in our Luxury Duvet Gunapod! (Link below for the Mommies with Cents blog and giveaway!)

 

Mommies With Cents:
Gunapod Luxury Duvet for Baby: Review & #Giveaway

Having a newborn can be scary.  SIDS was always a worry when my kids were babies.  You have to be careful and keep blankets and other items out of the crib.  Sleep sacks are a safer alternative to blankets.  Gunapod makes a really nice wearable blanket that is perfect for keeping baby safe and comfortable. Gunapod features a Wonderzip system that makes diaper changes easy and helps control the temperature to prevent overheating.  It opens completely from underarm to underarm with 4 separate  zipper pulls so you can configure it how you like.  Unzip the bottom to accommodate a stroller safety strap or allow baby to kick freely. There are shoulder snaps and generous armholes for comfort.  I like how the front zipper has a little flap at the top to cover the zipper pull so that it won’t irritate baby.

gunapod

You can rest assured that this product is safe because it was made with adherence with the strict standards of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CPSIA.  I got the super adorable pink heart print Gunapod Duvet for my brand new niece.  I was amazed by how soft and cozy the fabric is.  Seriously, I want one in my size! The secret to it’s luxuriously soft feel is the soft-fibered rayon fabric made from eco-friendly bamboo — a self-replenishing plant that is both plentiful and naturally harvested. The hypoallergenic bamboo fibers actually breathe better than cotton which makes it perfect for protecting sensitive skin and for keeping your baby from overheating.

Another thing I love about the Gunapod Duvet is that it is made so that it can be used longer than a normal wearable baby product.  The size small fits 0-9 months!  My niece was only 2 weeks old when this photo was taken and there’s lots of room for her to grow! The Gunapod Duvet is available up to size XL which will fit up to 36 months.

The fabric of this particular style is amazing but the other ones look pretty amazing too!  The plush fleece look super soft!  Be sure to check out everything they have to offer at www.gunamuna.com.

Q & A with Sara APRN CNM IBCLC
Founder, Director of Education

Name a fun fact about your store/ business:

Amma is a root word for “mother” or “grandmother” in many languages across the globe. It’s a term of endearment. It’s also what my third baby called me before he could say “mama”!
What is your favorite thing about our Gunapods?
We love gunapods because the extra weight can help settle a baby who’s learning to sleep without being swaddled.

What is your favorite season and why?

In Minnesota I think the prettiest season is fall, with the bright colors, delicious apples, and a last good-bye to nice weather before we all retreat inside for the long winter.

What sleep tip or advice would you give a new mom?

We have a book on sleep that I would recommend to all new parents! It’s a quick, easy read that focuses on preventing the need for sleep training. It’s called the Amma Parenting Center Book of Sleep and can be ordered by calling us – and can shipped anywhere!

Gunapod Review by Kellys Thoughts On Things

Thank you Kellys Thoughts On Things for this review! We love that you named our Gunapod a Perfect Valentines Day gift <3 Check out her review below and be sure to check out her thoughts on all sorts of things on her blog!

Wearable Baby Blankets Are What All Mothers Need For Their Baby

Gunamuna

Gunamuna has the perfect Valentine’s for your little one. Introducing their newest version of their wearable blanket –  Gunapod® Premium Luxury Duvet.

Easier Smarter Wearable Blanket

Gunamuna

Featuring the unique all around WONDERZiP® system. Which helps you have the easiest changing of the diaper while you are out on the go. And helping to keep the little one from getting too hot. Because it will open from the underarm to underarm.

Gunamuna

While featuring 4 separate zipper pulls that work in many different ways. You can unzip from the top to the bottom and leave the top of the Gunapod® snapped together. Or you can unzip all the way down the front to give you easy access to your baby. Because if you unzip the Gunapod® along the bottom, it will accommodate a car seat or stroller safety strap. Which gives your baby the freedom to kick all they want too.

Gunamuna

Also snaps on the shoulders with a big and loose neckline. If you need to, you can unsnap the shoulders and lift your baby out from the top of the blanket. I really love the big loose fit. These are so amazing and so super soft and comfy that I wished they made them in adult sizes. Because I would keep one with me while traveling.

While they are super extra lush & snuggly offering your baby the ultimate sleep experience. While it really doesn’t get any better than this. Super-soft, silky bamboo viscose that wraps around premium fill that helps to keep your baby super warm. It really does feel like a down comforter. It keeps your little one snug as a bug. While meeting the strictest standards of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CPSIA.

Leave a comment and let us know what you think about the new Gunapod® Premium Luxury Duvet by Gunamuna. Think your baby would love this as much as I do? Hopefully they make them in adult sizes soon.

GunaMuna Gift Guide 2016: Mom and Mother in Law

Mom and Mother in Law

Mom, Ma, Grammy, Nana…whatever you and your children call them, they are rockstars! They shaped who you and your partner are today and hopefully they live close by to help with your kids and if they live far, thank goodness for airplanes and Facetime! They most certainly deserve a something special for the holidays. We always give photo books &printed framed photos for their desks and handprint ornaments every year, and while they both say “photos are all we want and need!” , we know they’d like something a little more.

 

giftguide-cooking-for-jeffery

My mom and mother in law both have a thing for The Barefoot Contessa. But come to think of it, I know quite a few people that would love to be invited over for dinner at her barn in the Hamptons (myself included…are you listening Ina?!) All of her cookbooks are fabulous and are worth picking up! I own a few of them and Ina has yet to let me down in the kitchen. Her newest, Cooking For Jeffrey, is bound to be another winner. Its “filled with the recipes Jeffrey and their friends request most often as well as charming stories from Ina and Jeffrey’s many years together.” (48 years! woohoo!) . Tie a set of these narrow measuring spoons on top to make measuring spices a little bit easier because they can actually fit inside a spice jar (genius!). An apron or fresh dish towels are also nice additions!

 

 

gift-guide-robe

There’s a reason why Barefoot Dreams Cozy Chic collection has made Oprahs Favorite Things list (multiple times, including this year!) and why celebs love them….It’s like wearing a cloud! I am partial to their robes but the throw blanket is super cozy too (and less awkward if you curl up in it while visiting their house) Your mom and mother in law may never want to get dressed again after wrapping themselves in this luxurious gift!

Cheers! A wine subscription box is really the gift that keeps on giving. Really, whats better than wine delivered to your front door? Click over and grab a gift certificate to Winc (formally Club W). Afterall, she will need wine to pair with all the Ina Garten recipes she will be making or perhaps wine to sip on while she lounges in her new bathrobe 😉  As seen on Forbes, Today, New York Times, Redbook and more, Winc is a tried and true wine delivery that delivers wines specifically chosen to match your palate, right to your front door. (you may want to add this to your own wish list!). Pick up a wine aerator and tie the gift card to Winc on top!

 

Main Image - Nordstrom Solid Woven Cashmere Scarf

A little cashmere never hurt anyone! Scoop up one of these cashmere scarves (on mega sale and in multiple colors!) to add a pop of style, color and warmth to your mom or mother in law’s life on frigid winter days. Grab one for yourself while you are at it! I am a *really* big fan of the “One for you, one for me” shopping method 😉

 

Happy Shopping!

In Your Neighborhood…Clothes Pony

In Your Neighborhood…

Clothes Pony

clothespony-storefront

If you ever find yourself in Colorado, drop everything and get over to Clothes Pony & Dandelion Toys in historic Old Town Fort Collins!  A large, rambling, eclectic store, carrying children’s clothing, shoes, books, toys, baby gifts, infant carriers, cloth diapers, and lots more. For women they offer maternity clothing, diaper bags, shoes and accessories. You are sure to find what you are looking for…and then some. Their bright, colorful, playful shop is as enjoyable to just hang out in as it is to shop! We only wish they were closer so we could pop in for a visit!

Seconds after stepping foot in the door, it’s very obvious that Jenny and Becca, sisters and mothers, truly love what they do. They can often be found down on the floor in the play area with the littlest customers reading books and playing. If you are lucky you may get a front row seat to one or both of them loudly belting out Broadway show tunes and laughing while they are working away. (Their rendition of “Surrey With The Fridge On Top” is said to be their signature)  Jenny, Becca and their staff sincerely love kids – sassy, ferocious, fearless, wondering, wild, stinky, shy, brilliant, brash, loud, funny, cuddly, stumbling and sweet. In fact, meeting the beautiful, entertaining, endlessly fascinating babies and children who come to play and shop is one of their favorite things about owning their shop! (can’t say we blame them!)

One reason these two ladies have happiness written all over themselves and their shop is because Clothes Pony is really a wish come true for them. Growing up they dreamt of living in the same town and raising their babies together, but life happened and they spent a lot of their adult life apart. In 2001 the stars aligned and they found themselves in Fort Collins together. In 2003, their wish came true when together they opened Clothes Pony. After loving running the store together, they decided to open Dandelion Toys and later Urban Blossom (a funky shop for tweens). You are never too big to shop with these 2 lovely sisters! Clothes Pony and Gunamuna partnered up when Gunapod was only one year old and we’ve really enjoyed watching their successful business grow.

clothespony-owners

Fun Fact: Jenny was a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala for three years and is the cofounder of the non-profit Trees Water & People. Becca has worked in the non-profit world as well with homeless families and youth.

 

Q&A with Jenny and Becca

What do you like best about owning a locally owned shop?

We love owning clothes pony because we love our customers.  We think families need and crave community and we try to provide a place for parents to come together in a fun accepting environment.

Favorite thing about gunapods.

We choose Gunamuna because of the way the zipper works.  Parents need to be able to change their babies easily and Gunamuna lets you change your baby without waking them. For older kids the side zipper is awesome because toddlers can unzip   and wear their sleep sacks trailing behind them as they stand up in the crib or wander around in the morning. We reject all sleep sacks with a front zip

What sleep tip or advice would you give a new mom?

The advice we give parents is to try to shut out all the “shoulds” that you hear from friends, family, and media.  Parents need to do what works for them and their baby.  Look at your baby, your temperament,and your family setup, and create a way of parenting that works for you. Mostly a lot of love and as much laughter as possible are the main ingredients to successful parenting.
