Frosty Festivities: Koala Kuddles Swaddling Blanket review and {Giveaway!}

I remember, when I first brought my baby home, I tried to swaddle her with the regular swaddling blankets you find in stores. Even as a newborn, she would quickly work her way out of the swaddle. I was surprised how small the blankets were. I also worried about the flannel causing her to overheat in the warm weather.If only I had known about Koala Kuddles! These are Authentic Australian Swaddles, made from 100% cotton. They are larger than traditional swaddles.Even my 6-month-old stays securely swaddled with this blanket. They are also made with a great weave that is soft after washing and lightweight, allowing the baby's skin to breathe. The patterns are adorable, yet simple, with animals and dots. I am going to have to buy a bunch of these when I have another baby.I also love how the founder of Koala Kuddles, Diana Cregan, swaddles babies with the blanket. It's a better method than what I was taught in nursing school! Watch the video here.

  10. I agree that traditional swaddling blankets are too small, so I am glad to see these are bigger and I like the material. I would love to have these for my new baby coming!

  33. I like that they are so breathable. My baby will be born in April and I like that he can be swaddled but not too hot during the summer.

  59. They are made of muslin which is a weave that allows for heat to dissipate, therefore reducing overheating.

  65. The more it's washed the softer it becomes and it has a soft cushioning feel which gives it more flexibility.
