Baby Royale Blanket

I was approached by Hello Baby recently to review the Baby Royale luxury baby blanket, and whilst H is not really in the baby category anymore, she loves her blankets so I thought I would see what she thought of it.

Baby Royale is a small company based in Hertfordshire who create a range of ethically sourced premium baby products. This blanket is the first in their range with more to come later in the year. The blanket is hand woven with an inconsistent look, which I think adds character. With 70% bamboo and 30% cotton, the blankets are soft and silky. The blanket is available in blue, pink and white.

So why bamboo?

Well the reasons Baby Royale went for bamboo are for performance and for the environment. Bamboo is naturally hypo-allergenic and anti-bacterial, making it great for babies from birth. On top of this Bamboo plants regenerate and therefore don’t need replenishing, the plants are simply trimmed rather than cut down. Also, no pesticides are needed on bamboo due to it’s anti-bacterial properties, which means the fibres are pest resistant, making the bamboo plant ecologically friendly.

So what does all this mean for us?

All this means we get a really soft blanket that’s baby and child friendly. It makes a beautiful gift for anyone with a new born and it will last as a child grows. H is now 2 1/2 years and she snuggled up a few times over the weekend when she wanted “a chill out”. It’s just the right size to have on the sofa. It’s nice and versatile, with a younger baby it could be used in the cot, car seat or pushchair.

After trying the Baby Royale blanket I’ll be interested to see what other products they bring out later in the year.
