Softest Toddler Blankets in the World

Free Birdees is a family-owned business, founded by a mom named Kathy. Her baby had a severe case of eczema and sensitive skin. For this reason, she came to realize that the only fabrics she could rely on for being breathable and have a texture of softness, was viscose made from bamboo. This is what led her to making the bamboo baby blankets and softest toddler blanket in the world. Her hand-drawn designs are distinctive and like no other. Through her blankets and clothes, she wanted to create a strong connection with all moms-to-be and new moms.

Materials Used

Bamboo Baby Blankets

Free Birdees blankets, made with bamboo are in the soft blanket category.  Free Birdees only uses a very high quality bamboo to ensure minimal pilling after washing. They also ensure high quality assurance standards by choosing the best manufacturing partners for making their bamboo baby blankets. They also work with expert seamstresses who have the highest standard of work ethics. They want their blankets to be the best available in the market, using bamboo materials with the following standards:

  • is hypoallergenic,
  • stretches with your baby or toddler,
  • is breathable,
  • is eco-friendly, and
  • baby or toddler stays warm in winter and cool in summer.

The comparisons between some well-known materials used for baby blankets and other baby clothes are:

Unbleached Organic Cotton:

Cotton is a natural fabric, and unbleached is better for the environment than bleached cotton. Unbleached is also better for baby's skin. Even though organic cotton is good fabric for baby blankets, it doesn't compete with the softness of bamboo baby blankets.

Hemp:

This fabric is also natural, and growing hemp is not harmful to the environment. It is also a good fabric for baby blankets, but not as soft as bamboo fabric.

Bamboo Viscose:

Free Birdees chose this fabric for its bamboo baby blankets. Viscose is made from the cellulose of the bamboo plant. First the bamboo is broken then put into a solution to dissolve. Secondly, it is pressed into fibers then cooled. Finally, the fibers are spun into threads and woven into the bamboo viscose fabric.

There is a small percentage of Lycra in the fabric that allows it to stretch when your baby stretches and moves around. Because of its breathability, body heat is not trapped inside, and your baby is not too hot or too cold. This is why Free Birdees offers the best bamboo baby blankets and the softest toddler blankets in the world!

The following are the many types of bamboo baby blankets to choose from, depending on the age of your baby or toddler, or the way you are using your blanket:

Bamboo Swaddle Blankets

  1. Alpaca Swaddling Blanket
  2. Lambs Swaddling Blanket
  3. Highland Cattle Swaddling Blanket

Unique prints are used to make these bamboo baby blankets that measure 40"x29". They are made with 95% bamboo from viscose and 5% Lycra. Free Birdees uses a superior quality of yarns which helps prevent small balls of thread forming on the blanket, called pilling. The Lycra gives the fabric the stretch needed to swaddle your baby tightly so that he/she is warm and cozy. Surely, if your baby could talk, he/she would be saying, "Mom¸ it is scary being in this open space. Please swaddle me in a Free Birdees bamboo baby blanket, so I will feel safe and secure."

Swaddling babies is usually done for newborns, up to about two or three months of age. The reasons for swaddling babies are:

  • They don't cry as much.
  • They feel like they're close to their mom, and it reminds them of being in 
    their mother's womb. 
  • It helps prevent the strong startle reflex babies experience.
  • It helps prevent them from scratching their faces because many babies have 
    sharp nails.
  • It keeps them in one position, preferably on their backs, which is the 
    more safe position for sleeping.
  • It helps soothe a baby who is colicky.

There are basically four steps to swaddling your baby with bamboo baby blankets:

  1. Lay the blanket down in a diamond shape and fold the top down, then lay your 
    baby on top of the blanket.
  2. Pull either side over your baby and tuck the blanket under baby's opposite 
    arm.
  3. Pull the bottom part up over your baby and place it behind baby's shoulder.
  4. Pull the other side of the blanket across your baby's chest and tuck it 
    underneath.
