So….I have this thing with baby blankets. I love them. I currently hoard them in Lily’s closet. I have way too many – I don’t even think I’ve used half of them. But I love them. They are always so pretty and soft, they smell like babies, and you can use them for everything!
When LaLune Naturals contacted me to send me a few of their Ziggy Baby Muslin Swaddle Blankets, I was thrilled! I was even more excited when I got them because they are gorgeous! They sent me three blankets in gender neutral prints. Now, since having a daughter pretty much everything has been pink and sparkly, but I really did love the grey and white patterns on the blanekts for a change! They are clean and modern – there is a chevron print, a cross print, and an arrow print
The first thing you will notice when you take these out of the package is that they are SO soft. I just wanted to wrap myself up in them. They got even softer after being washed. They are the perfect summer blanket for babes, as they are very lightweight.
Another thing I noticed right away is the size of it – they are so big (48″ x 48″) that they make swaddling a breeze (as you may have guessed, Lily is not a huge fan of swaddling anymore, so I tested them on a friend’s baby). The size of them also means that they can be used for so many different things – everything in my life needs to multitask. I’ve used it as a blanket for her to play on, to cover her carseat in the sun, as a nursing cover (so lightweight that we’re not covered in the sweat by the end of it), and I can easily throw it over her in the summer to shield her from the sun without worrying about her overheating. The large size of the blanket also has me hopeful that she won’t outgrow it like her baby blankets. I’m hoping she can use it as a toddler – might be a good starter blanket when I’m ready to give her one (yup, that’s right, I’m one of those moms that is a real stickler for not having things in her crib. Her crib looks like a barren jail cell. Mattress, sheet, and that’s it!)
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the blankets, and the attention to detail. The edges are all finished nicely, with no loose threads or fabric coming apart. These blankets would make alovely gift for a shower, or for a mom-to-be to treat herself!
If you want to treat yourself or that new mom in your life, pop on over to Amazon to pick up a set!
