Polka Dot Mama review & {GIVEAWAY!!} CLOSED!


Before Tessa was born, I searched everywhere for the perfect baby blanket. I wanted something soft and cuddly, big but lightweight, and perfectly beautiful. This task proved to be more difficult than I anticipated. Until I found Polka Dot Mama. Talk about jackpot! Her cuddle blankies not only fulfilled every one of my expectations, they exceeded them!!
We've already seen Tessa sleeping soundly in her Polka Dot Mama blanket. Now let's talk about how completely fabulous it really is. The exterior is made of a gorgeous, super soft flannel. And the interior is made of, well, heaven- a plush minky dot that no baby (or mommy) can resist nuzzling into. As soon as Tess gets fussy, I wrap her in her pretty blanket and she cuddles right up into it, until she is fast asleep. Some might refer to this as a blankie...I call it my little miracle. The weight is perfect. Enough to keep a newborn cozy and warm without burning them up!
But Polka Dot Mama doesn't stop at full size blankets. Here is a woman that understands the needs of mommy and baby. Lugging a big blankie around town is not always feasible or practical. To accommodate the needs of us moms-on-the-go, Polka Dot Mama has created the smaller, travel-sized snuggler blanket. Made of equally soft minky dot fabric, and adorned with an adorable fabric customized initial, you can do no wrong with this perfect little snuggler.

I am so pleased with my blankets from Polka Dot Mama. But my opinion means little compared to the sweet dreams these blankets have provided my sweet little newborn... the real proof of these blankets' perfection.

Visit Polka Dot Mama today and pick up a blankie (or two) today!!

WIN IT!!
