Cuddle up with CoCaLo

Before Harriet was born I carefully handpicked her a gorgeous soft baby blankie, hoping that it would be love at first sight and the two would become inseparable. Of course Hattie turned out as headstrong as her mother and she refused to have anything to do with it. Fast forward 13 months and she has finally found one she adores, she carries it around throughout the house and she is not in the slightest bothered by the fact that it’s more a blanket than a blankie. I have to admit, this wonderful CoCaLo comforter is quite the prize:


Measuring a very generous 91 x 114 cm in size her beautiful CoCaLo Pinwheel Quilted Comforter is not only a great fit for a baby’s cot, it would also make a lovely soft spot for a precious little one to practise tummy time. Baby Harriet loves to nap with it but our 3-year old and even 5-year old like to snuggle up with it whenever they can too, it’s definitely a quilt that will be enjoyed well past the baby stage.


This beautiful comforter has a cosy 100% cotton outer that is comfortable to touch and gentle against the skin with a lightweight polyester filling for extra fluffiness. Bonus: Because busy mums have better things to do than tediously washing their laundry by hand CoCaLo comforters can be machine washed (cold, gentle cycle), it’s the simple things in life that make me happy.


Do you love the pretty CoCaLo look as much as I do? There is plenty more where that came from with matching sheets, blankets, bumpers and change pad covers to complete your stylish nursery. The Pinwheel Quilted Comforter is currently available in four stylish colours: Petal Pink, Orchid Hush, Starlight Blue and neutral Grey, which shade is your favourite?
