Audrey's Bear Swaddle Review

I received a sample from Audrey's Bear for the sole purpose of this review

Written by my co-writer, Cheyenne!

Babies need to be swaddled from birth, it's all they've known being in the womb and it helps them feel comfortable and safe. Swaddling is very important for babies to help them regulate their temperature and feel safe. It also allows them better sleep so they don't flail as much. And they experience less anxiety being swaddled. Audrey's Bear is doing great things and offering an array of wonderful swaddle blankets.

I received the Dots and Stripes blanket.

Naomi was born November 8th and I've been using our blanket since day 1. I love the blanket I got from Audrey’s bear. The printing on it is clear with a great color. The only thing I would have to say I don’t really like is the blanket is not that big, after the first week my daughter couldn't be swaddled in it. We have to just wrap her with her feet sticking out.

 The blankets come in 2 sizes, small and large. We received the small and it's only 28"x34" so it is quite tiny, but perfect for preemies. Naomi was 9 pounds at birth and 20.5", quite a chunky and long little girl. The large size would've been better for us, but that doesn't negate the quality of the blanket. The quality of the blanket is amazing and soft. Perfect for newborns.

I will definitely order from them for a gift for someone. The blanket is super stretchy as well!

Here's Naomi at 3 weeks old with her blanket

Washing it can be a little difficult as it cant go in the dryer. But it washes up beautifully and we still have no fade with our blanket at 5.5 weeks in!

Audrey's Bear is doing wonderful things. For every swaddle purchased, they donate one to a NICU or Pediatric Cancer Center! How wonderful. I will always support a company that gives back. 

Price: The Small blanket we received (double sided) is $39. A large double sided is $59, but that is 34"x54" and will truly last forever, into the toddler years as just a regular, lightweight blanket. 

Overall: **** out of 5.
