Audrey's Bear [Review]


Happy Wednesday lovies! 

Today I am bringing you a review of a brand that I have completely fallen in love with, Audrey's Bear. When shopping for baby things, it can definitely get a little overwhelming between all the different brands/styles/materials, etc. When shopping for items for Noah, I had a few things that were important to me, I wanted high quality, long lasting, preferably to purchasable from local/small businesses rather than chains where possible, and personalized. Baby things are not cheap so I didn't want to spend money on things that wouldn't last. 

I initially came across the Audrey's Bear website when searching "personalized baby blankets" on google. I browsed through the website and fell in love. They offer swaddle blankets, beanies, fitted sheets, changing pad covers, boppy covers, pacifier clips, rompers, and bibdanas. What really caught my eye about the company other than the fact that they are a small business is that they have a great mission. 



Audrey's Bear has a swaddle4swaddle program where they donate a swaddle blanket to a baby in the NICU or a pediatric cancer center for every swaddle that is purchased. This really stood out to me because the NICU is near and dear to my heart. My dad is a pediatric eye doctor for the NICU babies at our local hospital, I have spent a countless amount of hours volunteering in the NICU as a baby snuggler, and my best friend and her twin brother spent 1 1/2 months in the NICU. When I read that Rachel, the owner of Audrey's Bear also had personal ties to the NICU, I knew that I had to support this brand. 

Anyways, as I mentioned before, I was in the market for a personalized swaddle blanket for Noah and let me tell you, Audrey's Bear delivered! They have over 50 prints to choose from and they also offer sets with a swaddle blanket and hat (I picked up 4 sets and 4 blankets). The price point is right on target as well when you take in to consideration the quality and the personalization. The sets retail for $43 and the blankets alone for $29-$46 depending on size and style. 



I really can't get over the quality of these blankets. As soon as I got them, I washed them according to the directions they send with them so that they would be ready for our little man. The colors remained just as bright and the feel just as soft as when they came out of the package. 

A neat aspect of these blankets is that they have a stretch to them. Most other 'swaddle blankets' do not so it makes it hard to get a tight wrap on baby-which is what Noah loves! They are also super lightweight while still keeping baby warm. In Florida, you may think it is insane to want blankets regardless and yes it is scorching outside but because of that, every store b l a s t s the a/c so little man would freeze. I keep about three of these in the car for him to either cover a side of his car seat from the sun, shade him from the sun when we are driving, or to cover him lightly when daddy blasts the a/c. I also keep one in his diaper bag to have on hand for chilly trips to the store, and then they are scattered throughout our house. The prints and colors really stand out so I am constantly getting asked "where is that blanket from?"


This product is absolutely mommy approved and now more importantly, Noah approved! 
I highly recommend you checking out Audrey's Bear

  2. These are so cute and I love they help the NICU. A good baby blanket is hard to find at times. I will be honest...I still have my baby blanket...and I still sleep with it. I know I am a baby, but it is just comfort!
