Hello Baby sent me one of their bamboo-cotton blankets to try. X already had a blanket that he loved and I wasn't sure if he'd go for it. But once I covered him with it one night in his cot, he cuddled up to it and it was love.
When he came out the next morning carrying the blanket, Cate took one look and wanted it too! There was a tug-o-war for a little while over who would claim it as their own and I thought Cate was going to be the winner for a while there, but X managed to keep it to himself. It was actually cute, as soon one of them would put it down, the other would snatch it up and snuggle it. But X is the victor and it's his friend now.
I can't say as I blame him. It's so beautifully soft and surprisingly sturdy. It is a woven texture made from 70% bamboo/30% organic cotton - it's like a heavenly cloud. It's technically a receiving blanket so it's the perfect size for my little man to carry around with him. And he carries it everywhere.
