Tested by mum Danielle Reuby for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

My sons love this, it is for my newborn but as soon as my toddler saw this, he was so excited. It is really soft and tactile. The patchwork makes this fun to look at and having different textures is great for baby to explore. Therefore it offers both comfort and stimulation.  You can feel the quality of the material and see the skill put into making this. The size is good too as it is easily transportable for pram or summer evening BBQs in the garden. It also washes well which is vital for my reflux-prone baby.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

It is a beautiful blanket and keepsake. I can see this lasting as a comfort blanket when they are older and sick. It is warm, comforting and feels like a big hug. I will be buying one for my older toddler as he loves it. I do really love this, I am a tactile person and it ticks the boxes on that front. When the weather is cooler I can see this being used for snuggles at story time, and film night too.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Nothing needs to be changed I love it so much, in fact I want an adult sized one. I love a blanket to snuggle with on a chilly evening watching TV and this one is perfect. Mummy’s range please.

I loved this blanket. It's so soft, the design is gorgeous with little dinosaurs on one side and I loved the personalised touch with my son’s name embroidered on it. It's a good size too.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The blanket is a handy size to take in my changing bag and can be used as a blanket or for my baby to lie on and play.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Nothing - I really liked this product.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

My daughter loves this blanket! It is so soft that even I like touching it. Has different textures and lovely design. It's very well made and even personalised with her name. It's a good size too. I'd definitely recommend it to friends and family.

This is a nice size blanket that can be taken anywhere so we've used it in the pram, the cot and even taken it to nannies house! Has a lot of portability to it.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I thought the blanket was a little bit pricey but I don't doubt that a lot of time and care has gone into making it. Other than that, I don't think there is anything I would change about it.

It's a lovely personalised useful blanket. You can never have enough blankets for every occasion, and this it’s a very sweet and different option to the norm. I love that you can design your own on the website by choosing the fabrics you would like.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

It's beautifully soft and gentle on little one's skin, so works as a comforter as well. The cuddle blanket gives a great, soft surface for baby to lie on when kicking about on the floor. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this as a gift for newborns.

Tested by mum Victoria Renshaw for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I think this product would make a lovely gift or keepsake for a new baby or even toddler. I loved that the blanket was personalised with my daughter’s name and had a lovely patch work design. The blanket was lovely and soft and my baby loves to snuggle into it. I love that when ordering your own blanket you can chose the exact fabric designs and textures. It's a gift that can be kept forever.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Whether using in the buggy, the car or at home, the blanket always soothed my baby when she was getting tired as she loved the feeling of the soft fabric and the warmth it brought her. It soon became a safe haven for her and we took it everywhere we went so that when she became tired I could wrap her up in it and she would feel safe in her familiar blanket.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

If I were to change one thing it would perhaps to add a natural fabric range for those mums that don't like synthetic fabrics. Although the fleece fabrics were super soft and snuggly, they weren't the most breathable and did cause my baby to sweat from time to time. Maybe adding a cotton/bamboo selection to the range would cater to a wider range of parents. Bamboo is still super soft next to baby's skin but also natural and breathable so a great alternative. Also more font options for personalising the blankets would be great.

The patchwork cuddle blanket is so super soft and cosy it’s bound to comfort and warm any child without being too big and bulky.  The design’s available and personalisation is a lovely added touch to this lovely product,

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The patchwork cuddle blanket is perfectly sized for the cot, pram/stroller, carseat, swing/bouncer etc.  I mainly keep it by my sons cot for those restless nights or if he is a little chilly and it provides a great comfort to him.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

A more breathable material would provide greater comfort as a sleep product but without compromising the softness or cosiness if that is at all possible.  

Tested by mum Becky Carr for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I really liked this product and would highly recommend to other mums. It is amazingly soft and snuggly. It seems thick enough to provide a lot of warmth for my baby whilst also being lightweight enough to put in my change bag. It is a perfect size to take out and about in the buggy. When my baby is a bit older, I imagine that this blanket would also make an excellent comforter. This blanket is a great value for money, with a huge range of options for personalisation. It would make a really lovely, unique gift.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

As mentioned above, the blanket is warm but lightweight so very convenient to take out and about. It also washes well and dries very quickly.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The material feels like 100% polyester, which would stop me from wanting to use it as cot bedding especially for a newborn. I would probably want more natural and breathable fibres for bedding. As a comforter and blanket for the buggy it is great.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Bright bold and eye catching design. A lovely difference from the usual baby pastels. The personalisation element is just so sweet and adds a really nice touch. Super soft and so comfortable for a baby to lie on. Great as a mini play mat when small and a snuggle blanket when bigger. Such a fun design it really was something different. Washed really well and didn't lose its cuddle ability!

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Nothing I can do better, it's just so nice to have something unique with baby's name on and not in the usual colours.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Needs to be bigger to get more use when baby gets older.

Tested by mum Kelly Dunlop-Chatburn for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I would recommend the Patchwork Cuddle Blanket from the Cuddle Company to fellow parents as the blanket I received for my daughter was super soft, individually designed in terms of the patterns and colours used and personalized with my daughter’s name. My daughter and I love this blanket and we rarely go anywhere without it.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Initially, upon receiving my daughter’s Patchwork Cuddle Blanket, I was taken aback by the mix of bright colours and bold design, I’m over that now and I absolutely love the blanket, as does my daughter (and our family and friends…and strangers). This is a product that I imagine will stay with daughter for quite some time as when she finishes using it as a comfort blanket she can use it as a throw for her bed or a chair in her room.
