These blankets are amazing. I choose to swim against the tide and mostly don't swaddle. I know, how crazy of me ;) That said, I use these blankets for so much more. I use them almost every day in some fashion for my 5 month old. As a newborn, I did swaddle Caleb in them for a month or two. I use them to block the sun out in the car. I drape them over half of his car seat because I still want him to be able to look out the back window. I also use them as a nursing cover. I prefer them over my actual nursing covers. Unfortunately, Caleb is starting to learn he can pull them down so I might have to switch to the covers that have a neck thing so he can't expose me ;) They are also perfect as a light blanket. They are so very breathable but still provide some warmth. Love them! I have been known to use them as a "changing pad" if I'm out in a random place changing a diaper. They are much easier to tote along than a real changing pad (but obviously less comfortable for baby's back). If I ever have or adopt a girl, I'm going to splurge and get the girl pack just because new babies need new things too! I received the boy pack (not the ones pictured...I couldn't find the ones I have) as a gift. I'm so glad I did because I would never have dropped $50 for them myself. Now, if I can afford it, it is one of my standard shower gifts for new mothers. You can get them online in smaller packs or a 4-pack at Target.
