Margaux and May is an Eco-friendly brand that uses only the best quality materials including 100% organic cotton. They’re focused on the quality of their products and also pay very close attention to detail.
They have bold and fun designs that they are proud to show off; they believe in having products with personality! While these blankets are known more for swaddling your baby, they are so incredibly versatile that they can be used for so many different things.
They can be used as a regular blanket for your older baby or even toddler. My toddler is giant and these swaddles can cover him comfortably. They’re actually large enough that even I use them if I get a little cool. If you’re a nursing mother who is more comfortable nursing in public using a cover, these are lightweight enough that you don’t have to worry about your little one getting too warm while nursing. I always keep one in my car because you never really know when you might need an extra blanket. My toddler will often times skip a nap but fall asleep in the car. Since he’s too heavy for any carriers we have, I fold one of our blankets up and use it as a pillow in the cart while shopping. They’re also perfect for the park! I often times put one in the swing when my little guy swings. On warm days, this is great because the swings get super hot. We also use them to lay down on the grass while our little one (who isn’t quite walking) wants to sit and watch his brother play.
I also use them for diaper changes. It’s always frustrating when you forget your changing pad and there aren’t any in the bathroom. Since I usually always have at least one swaddle blanket with us, they tend to be used quite often for diaper changes. They work so well because they’re so large and also really soft. I even use them at home for diaper changes since we got rid of our changing table and do pretty much all of the diaper changes on the floor. This helps avoid getting the floor dirty but is also more comfortable for our little guy to lay on.
These blankets are made from 100% organic cotton. They’re about 120 cm x 120 cm (47″ x 47″). In each package you get two prints. The colors on the prints are very gender neutral, so they can be used no matter the gender or your little one. These blankets are so lightweight and soft! They are also stretchy and really gentle so they’re nice and comfortable for your little ones. While they are gentle blankets, they’re also very durable and will withstand the washer. Because we know how messy kids are, so you know you’ll be washing these frequently! With them being lightweight, it protects against baby overheating. Of course the obvious use is to swaddle or wrap your baby up for sleeping. While my little guy is past the swaddling age, I can tell you that as far as size goes, these would be perfect to swaddle!
Washing instructions are pretty simple and are as follows. Wash separately before use. Cool wash with like colors then line dry in the shade. You can also dry them on a gentle/warm tumble dry in your dryer. Do not rub, soak or wring. Do not bleach and do not dry clean.
