When we had our children, we tried really hard to be cognizant of the fabrics and materials that would be part of our nursery. We opted for organic cottons when we could. We knew organic cotton is grown in an eco-friendly manner, one that saves hundreds of gallons of water, uses no pesticides and is better for both you and Mother Nature. Baby Essentials makes an organic cotton baby blanket that are simply sweet and are perfect for parents that are looking to use products that are green and natural.
Much of the organic cotton used hails from the abundant supply in India. Although manufactures in India don't necessarily use the organic cotton products, it is readily available, is GOTS certified and is much safer for baby's absorbent skin. I love how large the Baby Essentials organic cotton baby blanket is. At 42x42" , it is perfect for tummy time, as a swaddle wrap, nursing cover or as a stroller blanket while out and about.
The pretty flower pattern is delicate, not overwhelming and is feminine in a soft, and subtle manner. The Baby Essentials cotton blanket gets its softness from its tightly woven organic cotton called Cambric. It is both lightweight,and snuggly, and boasts two layers for added comfort. Another feature I loved about this eco-friendly organic cotton baby blanket is that the fabric is treated with vegetable dyes that even have medicinal and healing properties intended to soothe baby's skin and avoid irritations.
