The blanket is really attractive, wonderful to touch and intuitive to use. The dimensions are perfect - all the corners and edges fell neatly into place as I was following the steps on the tip tag! -Marina, San Francisco
We purchased 2 of your blankets when we had twins almost 2 years ago. We bought them primarily to use for swaddling--little did we know how obsessed they would become with their "blankies"! Both of our twins, Ireland and Elias, have grown attached to their Swaddle Designs blankets, and *have* to sleep with them as their comforter. They both carry them around frequently throughout the day--our son Elias especially is seriously in love with his blankie. We sometimes call him "Linus" (from Peanuts) as he will walk around with it dragging behind him all day. In fact, if we try and put him down without it (and replace it with another blanket), he will scream as if you just put a snake in his crib. What's amazing is the blankets still look like new 2 years later. For the past 2 years they have been dragged, spit-up on (and thrown-up on...eww), chewed on, thrown, and more. They have been washed more times than we can count. Yet, they still look pristine and like new! Thank you for this great product that has become much more of our twins' lives than we would have imagined. -Mark & Danielle
A girlfriend bought this blanket for my baby shower because she had found out that Gwyneth Paltrow had bought one for her baby! I absolutely love this blanket, it is big, and it is nice that the directions on how to swaddle properly were on the label. Now that my son is 6 months old, we use the blanket for other uses, like tummy time and keeping warm outdoors! -Jennifer, mother of a wonderful 6 month old boy, Paso Robles, CA
