Organic Swaddle Blanket - DANISH MIDWIFE



When we set out to create an organic swaddle, we committed to making the very best. We searched high and low until we found it, halfway around the world, in Denmark. 

These 41" x 41" blankets are perfect for wrapping your baby to sleep. Made of a puffy cloud of Organic Cotton that's beautifully light, stretchy and ideal for swaddling in any temperature. But the real magic happens when you wash it! Because every time it's washed it just gets softer and softer and SOFTER to make this blanket more lovable every time you use it.


The Snug Bug's Katya first discovered these blankets while visiting her sister-in-law in Denmark. Katya is committed to raising her family in an eco-friendly way and was a little jealous of her in-laws who had moved from the city to a farm where their children played in fields of heather and ate food from their organic garden. She recalls how, "It reminded me a lot of the children's book, Heidi. Her children were all so amazingly happy and healthy. Her toddler went everywhere with his favorite blankie. It was so soft and cuddly from millions of washes, just like my grandmother's sheets. When I asked about it, she said, 'That's his Jordmoder. I can't tear it away from him.' I could see why. Funnily enough, Jordmoder literally means "Earth Mother" in Danish but it also means Midwife." 

These are the blankets that nurses, mothers and midwives have used to swaddle babies for ages in Scandinavia. So Katya asked her sister-in-law to send over a Danish Midwife blanket for us (no, we didn't steal it from her little boy). We all agreed it was the softest swaddle we'd ever felt! Our search was finally over.

** Our swaddle blankets are made without chemicals of any kind because our special fabric has been tested safe due to its special diamond weave and plush feel. Open weave gauze muslins may have flame retardant chemicals in order to meet safety guidelines. Washing softens the fabric like grandma used to because we do not use softening chemicals for like large brands for very sensitive skin.

  3. My favorite swaddles

    Posted by lepetitelange on 4th Mar 2015

    these swaddling blankets are the nicest, softest, most versatile ones I own. far superior to aden+anais blankets (which I do like and own several), the weave is great for swaddling, but still light weight...is also still thick enough to catch baby drool, wipe up milk, etc. the PERFECT swaddle blanket

  11. good for toddler too

    Posted by Unknown on 20th Feb 2015

    I am writing this as a mommy with a toddler. My sweet daughter has chosen this to be her favorite blankie, so I came to get more. We did use it to swaddle but once we stopped, this was her favorite one. Now coming to get more so my little girl always has a clean blankie.

  12. Soft

  14. Wonderful

    These are wonderful blankets. Excellent quality

  15. You have stumbled upon the best blankets evah

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Sep 2014

    Now pick a few colors and buy them. Don't put anything else on your registry because they will just gather dust in a drawer. I love mine! I put pink, yellow and gray on my registry and got them all, lucky mom. I had not heard about them because all my friends have the muslin kind, but we wanted to go organic. They are soft, fluffy, and look just as good as when I got them. The best!!!!!!

  16. LOVE

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Sep 2014

    This is the best swaddle we have and we got tons for our shower. It beats Aden Anais swaddles by a mile because those pill immediately and snag and are useless. This swaddle is our absolute favorite and we used it all summer. Back for my sister in law's gift!

  17. Love the Trims

    Posted by Marta van Kleef on 27th Jul 2014

    I love the trims! I made a gift basket for my niece and they looked so cozy and sweet in her nursery colors (yellow and gray.) A classic and lovely gift.

  18. Genuinely Organic

    Posted by brookebradh on 27th Jul 2014

    You can tell this blanket is truly organic. It gets better over time. I was given a set of "organic bamboo" swaddles. They completely fell apart. It is hard to find genuine quality organic baby blankets now.

  19. A Joy

    Posted by kanaka453 on 27th Jul 2014

    This is my third purchase of the Oatmeal blanket so I had to write a review. My blankets have been washed countless times and it really is true about the fabric getting better. Every time I take one out of the dryer, I smile because they just keep getting softer and thicker. I can't remember the last time I bought anything that washes so well.

  20. The Real Deal

    Posted by Cocoboots on 27th Jul 2014

    Finally, a quality organic swaddle blanket not made in China! My sister's registry was specific about nothing made in China. Talia was kind enough to provide me detailed answers to my questions. Thanks!
