When Kate was in the NICU she was constantly swaddled in a flannel blanket and we thought it best to keep it up at home. Unfortunately we didn’t have any receiving blankets. I wrote it on a shopping list before smacking myself in the forehead upon realizing that they’re nothing more than a hemmed square. So, out came the rest of my Amy Butler flannel and twenty minutes later she had two more bundling blankets.
These measure about 37 inches square but next time I think I’d make them a little bigger to thwart her middle of the night Houdini moves a little more effectively.
