Shi Shu Baby Review/Giveaway
There are quite a few gorgeous baby finds out there. There are even more baby goods that are those practical, must-haves. However, very few baby items fit both the beautiful and practical categories.
Which is why we love our SHI SHU STYLE baby blanket.
These blankets are incredibly soft and handwoven for a beautiful texture and feel. Made of a 60%/40% natural cotton to bamboo blend, they are completely free of unnatural or chemically treated fibers.
SHI SHU STYLE's creator designed these blankets when her own son's favorite microfiber/polyester blanket caused him to break out in a rash.
If you haven't discovered bamboo yet, you will be amazed! Bamboo is soft, has antibacterial properties, and breathes. It is a soft and natural fiber to wrap delicate baby skin in. The 100% bamboo sateen trim on the blanket gives it that wonderful, silky edge that babies love so much. My toddler loves to rub her face against its silky softness.
We especially love this blanket's weight and texture, which is warm for winter winter, but also breathes, making it cool enough for use in the warmer months, too.
I'm also really impressed with its generous size.The blanket is 30 by 40 inches, which makes it sufficiently large for swaddling baby or covering a sleeping (and wiggly) toddler. So many traditional baby blankets are outgrown quickly, and many of them are never large enough for the "swaddling-challenged" parent at all. This blanket will easily take us through the infant stage to toddler and beyond!
For those of you who wonder (like I do) why the best blankies are always baby-sized...they make an adult-sized throw too! The SHI SHU HOME throw was even a premier gift at the 66th annual Golden Globes.
