I have tried many swaddling blankets and wraps, but these are by far the best i have ever experienced. They have alot of fabric which makes it easy to swaddle from newborn to older babies. When I was in the hospital with my second born the nurses oohed and ahhed over this blanket. They are breathable and get softer with every use. These are now my favorite baby shower gift! I have yet to meet a dissapointed mama.
