- MADE FROM THE HIGHEST QUALITY ORGANIC MUSLIN – Extra Large Size 47 X 47 inches – The Gentle Whispers, Calming Seas Organic Swaddling Blanket features the highest quality and luxuriously smooth organic muslin to provide maximum comfort to your newborn. Other swaddling blankets available on Amazon can be made from lower quality, cheaper fabrics that can be disruptive to a sensitive baby’s sleep. For a swaddling blanket, it’s always best to choose one made with Organic Muslin.
- EMULATES THE WARMTH AND COMFORT OF THE WOMB – Swaddling is extremely beneficial to your newborn as the sensation of wrapping your baby in a cocoon of soft, warm fabric emulates the feeling and comfort of the womb. The purposeful design, organic material, and breathability make our Organic Swaddling Blankets feel as close to the womb as possible, reducing stress and overwhelm of your baby.
- WHY SWADDLING IS IMPORTANT FOR YOUR NEW-BORN – Swaddling can help bridge the gap between the comfort of the womb and the outside world, making the transition easier for your baby. Research shows that swaddling your baby keeps them warm and comfortable, as well as aiding in them being able to have longer and more high quality sleep.
- THE MOST VERSATILE BLANKET WITH 5+ USES: Our Organic Swaddling Blanket has over five fantastic uses in addition to a swaddling blanket. It can be a substitute for a changing mat in a pinch, function as a burp cloth, cover a nursing mother, shade a sleeping baby in a carseat, provide a clean surface for your baby to lay upon, as well as a variety of other uses!

I love this two-pack of swaddling blankets – I’m expecting a baby boy in October, and we’re setting up an “ocean” theme for the nursery, and these are a perfect addition! Besides the adorable patterns, these blankets are made of 100% muslin cotton, which I discovered with my toddler is the absolute best type of fabric for swaddling babies. This type of fabric feels “delicate” and is very lightweight and breathable, but also strong and durable – and can be machine washed and dried.
I was also impressed with the packaging – you can’t fully appreciate how high-quality the box that the blankets arrive in looks just from the product images. My first thought when I opened the package was that they’d make a great baby shower gift – the blankets are incredibly useful and adorable, but the packaging really sets it up to be a great gift. I actually plan to get another set to gift to my sister-in-law who’s also expecting.
The size of these blankets is great – at 47×47 inches (or just shy of four feet square), they’re much larger than typical receiving blankets. The larger size makes it much easier to swaddle a baby (AND they have visual step-by-step swaddling instructions on the back of the box!) The combination of size and the lightweight material also makes them ideal to use as a nursing cover or car seat cover – or even as a light summertime blanket for an older child. My two year old is fascinated with the patterns on these blankets so he’s currently using them – and this type of fabric gets softer the more it’s washed, so they’ll be extra-comfy by the time the baby gets here.
