When you have babies one of the most important pieces of your gear is always their swaddling blankets. As they grow they need the blankets less. However, Sam had found comfort in a simple blanket from i am baby.
He is much too old to swaddle but when we go to treatments he covers himself with the blanket and after he likes to wrap one around him while I hold him. His treatments always seem to take a lot out of him, so we generally sit for a little while in the office after. It gives him a chance to recover some before we head to the next appointment or home. I tried to get a good picture of him with the blanket, but it upset him when I snapped one. I figured if it upset him that much I wouldn’t do that.
i am baby was founded by a mother who noticed how much parents love to represent their countries and cultures. That is something I am certain every mother out there can relate to. All I am baby blankets are 100% organic cotton muslin and can be used to swaddle, as cover ups when breast feeding, strollers covers and more. I knew my babies were too old to swaddle but with so many babies in the family I wasn’t worried at all.
i am American is white with the standard red, white, and blue American flag. This one Sam will use but it is not his favorite of the two we received. My nephew who is only a couple of months old loves this one. I will tell you that these blankets are so soft. I don’t think I have ever felt a softer swaddle blanket. Maggie stuff that sticker on the hat because she said the white wasn’t pretty. That child!
The i am American Grey is the one that Sam loves. I wish I could tell you why but I have no idea why he prefers this one over the other. He will check my bag for it before we head to his appointments. The minute we pull up to the hospital and he gets out of his seat he is pulling this blanket into his little hands. He just finds comfort in it and for that I could not be happier. He never had a favorite blanket or toy that he he had to have. However if one of the other kids get a hold of this he will freak out.
As I said both of these blankets are super soft and I was a little worried about how they would feel after I washed them the first time. Thankfully they both remained super soft and are still soft. I don’t use any fabric softer in them or dryer sheets. I do use the free and clear baby detergent because he can’t have anything that may irritate his skin. You can see in the above picture just how large these are. There is more than enough blanket for a toddler. They are thin since they are muslin but like I said Sam doesn’t care.
