I am going to be honest, before being contacted about reviewing the Ciinolin product, it was not something I was familiar with. I am talking the product itself, not the "swaddles" comparable to receiving blankets (IMO). After the initial contact I did browse the site and was fascinated by what I saw, not just the product but what the company does to give back to less fortunate.
I have had babies in my home for 22 years, yes I know it seems like a long time, but my kids are split by 10yrs. I have used receiving blankets for many things, to cover, to protect my clothes, to feed, to warm and to protect from the sun in a stroller. As my kids got older they were used to make tents, to sit on and to put dollies to bed. A basic receiving blanket comes in one size and we used them for what we could manage which was many ways.
I have honestly found the #1 product for those new parents-to-be and should be included for the baby shower as the perfect "swaddle" cover that has the ability to replace the smaller, heavier versions. These are the softest covers I have ever put my hands on and come 3 to a pack(47"x47") so you have back ups to pack for on the go. The colors are very vibrant and so kid friendly and honestly could be used for a boy or girl with the themes offered, of which there are two.
They are 70%Rayon, 30% cotton, Asian inspired, machine washable cool/cold with like colors. I received the Cirebon with Baby Step Cards. The cards are for you to mark milestones in your babies life so you don't forget, its a new take on a baby book.
At this time Ciinolin are available online and all prices are in USD.

The cause of my review was for "Education" A portion of the sale of this product will be donated to provide 6 underprivileged children in Myanmar with their own sets of school stationary and donated to provide 1 underprivileged child in Cambodia with an education resource pack (notebooks, pens, pencils and textbooks).
