Guide Review - The Miracle Blanket

The idea behind the Miracle Blanket is that it can help you easily and effectively swaddle your newborn.

Swaddling helps calm your baby during the first four months of life. This can result in less crying from both the baby and the parents.  This is why swaddling blankets in general and this one in particular are popular baby shower presents. Keeping your baby calm is the ticket to keeping the parents calm, cool, and collected.

It certainly makes easing into parenting much easier when the baby is quiet.

The problem is many baby blankets just don't work well. Unlike using a regular blanket from your baby's nursery, the Miracle blanket is designed to help hold your baby's limbs close to their body, like they were in the uterus, rather than allowing them to flail around. This lack of control can cause a feeling of stress and discomfort.

Since the regular blanket purchased for your baby is usually a plain square or rectangle, they are not designed to really hold your baby's limbs close to their body. This means that if the parent can remember the tricky maneuvers to help a regular blanket work, a couple of movements from baby bring the regular blanket undone. The Miracle Blanket is designed to hold the arms and feet separately and pull them close to the body. This provides an easy method of swaddling a baby.

The good news about the Miracle Blanket is that unlike other blankets is that it doesn't use any fasteners like Velcro to attach the blanket together.

This makes the Miracle Blanket the safest choice for a swaddling blanket. The pouches for the limbs are also adjustable to help grow as your baby grows. Nothing is more frustrating than finding a product that works and your baby outgrows it.

The Miracle Blanket is well constructed. It is also easily washed for those frequent newborn washes. This was important because my kids love to soil blankets. I actually had two. The Miracle Blanket comes in unbleached cotton and multiple colors of cotton.
