Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
3.0 out of 5 stars
Pilled after 1st wash....not impressed
Reviewed in the United States on July 23, 2019
I am currently expecting and bought these for our new baby. As with any of my other new baby items I always wash then first. Out if the bag these are your standard receiving blankets - after the first wash they are pilled (see photos) and do not fold evenly.They are however very soft but if they look like this after only one wash I can’t imagine them holding up.Another pet peeve of mine is the tag - I will never understand (perhaps it is for safety info and required) the placement of these large scratchy tags on baby items - especially baby sleep items.Overall really disappointed in these for the price and the brand.
These are what you expect - thin flannel receiving blankets - great for swaddling or wrapping loosely. They wash and dry nicely - Flannel does tend to pill over time, but by that time, baby is usually past that swaddle point. I loved the pretty pink prints and Mom did too. You get 7 in the pack. Having said all of this, I never hesitate to update my reviews should new info seem useful. All of my reviews reflect my honest, personal experience with the reviewed item - your experience may be different. I am not influenced by any outside source. I receive/accept NO free products or discounts that are not available to all shoppers- ever. For some reason our shopper ranks are no longer visible - so, to give you a little more info about me, I am a top 50 reviewer (#30 the highest rank achieved). Those numbers used to fluctuate over time - up and down but I noticed that they stopped updating regularly - perhaps to phase them out. I've been doing reviews for over 25 years with Amazon - nearly 6,000 reviews, viewed over 50,000 times, nearly 24,000 likes.
I love these! They’re soft, colourful and a good size for swaddling.
People have complained in reviews that they went bobbly etc on first wash….not sure what temperature these people were washing them on but I washed them all at 30 and ironed them and they’re not bobbly at all.
Bought this set for my sister’s baby, loved the unisex colours & designs. Nice quality, knew they would be very useful. My sister loves them, using them for everything, asked me to get another set. This time I knew I had a niece so got a pink set, both sets already used & washed multiple times, like good quality flannel gets softer the more it’s washed.
These blankets are literally perfect for anything. So versatile. Fabric is superset too, so much better than Muslin. Patterns are great, I got white and black and baby loves the patterns so much. I use these for blankets, burp cloths, laying on the changing mat. Everything. They wash very well too. Would highly recommend.
I've bought extra of these as they're wonderful as a blanket, for protecting my baby from the sun, to use for burping, catching drips while nursing, etc... they get dirty quickly so it's good to have plenty of them.
