This past month a few people have commented on the lovely raccoon blanket that you often see in my Facebook photos of baby Sybil, everyone seems to love it (so do we!) and wants to know where to buy it. Well, I am excited to share that this gorgeous minky blanket is part of the Samiboo blanket range at online boutique La Mami and wonderful owner and mum Joanna is kindly giving you the chance to win one too.
Mums all across Australia are quickly falling in love with Samiboo‘s fantastic range of baby wraps, bed linen, pillows and accessories. Made in Europe from quality fabrics, including bamboo, and featuring unique, colourful prints their designs are a great fit for modern families. The luxurious Minky Blankets (from $79) are absolutely delightful and very versatile, whether you use them in the cot, on the couch, in the pram, car or play pen they are sure to keep your baby comfortable and looking stylish.
There are many Minky Blanket designs to choose from in both boy and girl styles, popular themes include cars, birds, cupcakes, planes, butterflies and more. All blankets are reversible with cute printed cotton on one side and super soft plush minky in a matching colour on the other side for your baby to snuggle into. You can even select different sizes and weights to suit the environment and season, I chose the extra weight to make a lovely, cushioned play rug for our little girl.
For summer time Samiboo also has a lighter bedding option in the shape of the handmade Bamboo Cot Blanket ($89) and the Bamboo Muslin Cot Blanket ($79). Bamboo is an environmentally friendly fabric that is soft and gentle on your baby’s skin, it is also naturally antibacterial and will help keep your little one cool on hot days. Thanks to the anti allergenic properties of bamboo it is a popular choice for eczema sufferers. While these two designs are called blanket they can easily be used as a wrap, sheet or even a sunshade too.
The standard Bamboo Cot Blanket is silky smooth and measuring 110x110cm it is a great size for swaddling your baby. Our little Sybil is still being wrapped at bed time and I love how soft this cute owl print blanket is against her skin, especially important on warmer days when it is placed directly against her bare legs and arms. If you do live in a hot climate the lighter, more airy muslin version is probably the best pick for you.
