Gunamuna Bamboo/Cotton Gunapod Wearable Blanket

Safety and comfort.  Two words that come to mind when I think about what I need for my baby to sleep at night.  I need to make sure she will be safe in her cradle.  This means no loose, heavy blankets to get in her face, but the ability to keep her warm and snuggly.  Meet the Gunapod, wearable blanket from Gunamuna.  Now, I know there are millions (okay, not really, but there are a lot!) of companies that have designed wearable blankets, so what makes the Gunapod different, you ask?  

It's called WONDERZiP.  I have never seen a wearable blanket that has a zipper like this! It has 4 all-around zipper pulls for easy on and off, diaper changes, temperature regulation, and the baby's personal preference.  Unzip the bottom portion of the Gunapod to change you sweetie's bum, let them kick their little tootsies, or cool them down if they become too warm!  You can also unzip the bottom to allow you to properly strap the baby into the stroller or carseat while they are wearing the Gunapod.

 The neatest thing about the WONDERZiP is that you can completely open up the Gunapod to put the baby in the blanket if they are already sleeping!  No slipping it on over their head and waking them up.  The zipper opens all the way to the other side and the shoulders unsnap for wake-free dressing.  To me, this is 100% unique, and I love this feature.  

It comes with this nifty tag that shows you all the different ways you can use your Gunapod.

The Natural Collection Bamboo Gunapod is bright and cheerful!  I received orange, but it is also available in a hot pink dot or a brown dot as well and retails for $39.50.  Each one has a slightly different hand-sewn patch to make it unique and special. This version is lighter weight and made from 70% bamboo viscose and 30% cotton so it is super-duper soft!  The fabric is pre-shrunk, so you know that it won't look wonky when you pull it from the dryer.  The bamboo Gunapod is also antibacterial, breathable, moisture-wicking and eco-friendly.  It is made from 100% naturally grown and sustainable bamboo that is grown without pesticides, fertilizers or chemicals and no irrigation is required for it's growth aside from natural rainfall.  I love using a product that has a great-carbon footprint!  

 The inside has a smooth, fuzzy texture. 

The Gunapod is also a lot longer than any other wearable blanket.  The size small that I received looks like it will fit Livvy for a long time!  I plan to use this one through the winter by layering a warmer sleeper on underneath.  

As you can see, she didn't mind wearing it at all!  She still had plenty of room inside of the Gunapod to kick her feet around and roll back and forth.

See, easy for changing!

The Gunapod is also available in 100% polyester fleece for a warmer, fluffier blanket for winter.  The Classic collection Solid Gunapod comes in light pink, brown, blue and ivory and retails for 29.50.  The Party Collection Striped Gunapod comes in purple, olive, blue and orange and retails for 34.50.  

Another really cool thing about Gunamuna?  They adhere to the strictest standards of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the CPSIA, and the British Safety Standard so you know that by using the Gunapod, your child is not only comfortable, but safe too.  Peace of mind is a wonderful thing.
