Bubble Bamboo Wraps – bamboo swaddling blankets. About $45 to $50 for a three-pack.
These swaddling blankets are super-thin, which means you can put your babies into onesies or light jammies, swaddle the heck out of them and not worry about overheating their little bodies.
Bubble Bamboo Wraps are nice and big (100 cm x 120 cm), so you can single or double-swaddle your babe for much longer than with many other swaddling blankets.
My neighbour often uses the one I gave her to drape over her stroller when her daughter’s sleeping, and since bamboo is so breathable, there’s no concern.
Another few great things about bamboo? It’s temperature-regulating, moisture-wicking and naturally antibacterial. Bamboo also grows without pesticides at an alarmingly fast rate making it extremely sustainable.
We swaddled The K Man until he was six months old, and Miss Q nearly as long. And with both of them above the 100th percentile for height and weight, they quickly outgrew any swaddling blanket I could find at the time. Part of the reason is that I could never find one that was a perfect square. When I made my own, I made them square, and I can’t quite figure out why companies keep making them in any other shape. Squares mean you can swaddle evenly on both sides without one weirdly long side that doesn’t tuck around your baby’s body as well. At 100 cm x 120 cm, Bubble Bamboo Wraps are – obviously – not square. They should be.
