Cuski Reviews

Cuski has been a well known brand to us, Bee has had a Cuski Mini for when he was born and now it sits in his memory box.

I was on the hunt for the softest muslins I could find as Bee is very comforted by having soft material on his face and holding/sucking and rubbing the fabrics on his face.

Sadly most of the muslins that I could find from the normal range of shops were far too rough for what he wanted and the lack of softness made it hard for him to comfort himself, even after repeated washing - they still were better geared for wiping spit up milk.

When I spoke to the lovely people behind Cuski, a company created for parents to provide their babies with natural soft cotton comforters to replace bulky blankets or dummies, they sent out a pack of their Mini Swandoodles.

The first thing you will notice when receiving a package from Cuski is the way it is lovingly wrapped and sent, it really feels that they care about you and their product which is fabulous.. I love that the service is so personal and welcoming to be a returning customer!

The Mini Swandoodles come in a pack of 3 (they do girls and boys designs) Bee was sent the London cabs designs which include 1 plain white, 1 blue, 1 blue striped and 1 white with blue cars.

The feel of these muslins are incredible, they are so soft! even straight from the packet! Normally when you get muslins they need to be 'broken in' over time to achieve the softness but these beat my expectations.

After a couple of washes they were even softer and Bee absolutely loves them! I make sure we have one wherever we go so that he can have one against his face as he drifts of to sleep.

Another fab use we have found is for help with teething! Bee has hard sore gums but no teeth yet and I find that wrapping my finger in a Swandoodle and letting him chomp down not only feels good on his sore gums without being too harsh, it also saves my finger from getting crushed! win win!

This is what they say about them taken from the Cuski website:

Another awesome product we were sent to review is the Cuski Great Swandoodle which is a HUGE versatile swaddling muslin!
Here is the uses they list on the website:

Made from 100% bamboo rayon which is ultra soft and breathable, The Great Swandoodle has a wide range of uses:
Baby Swaddle
Baby blanket

Modesty cover while nursing
Bed throw
And is perfect for daytime snuggle while you’re chilling…!
We were sent the Orange Hippo Great Swandoodle which is grey striped. I can definitely say we have used it in different ways so far.. we used it was a buggy privacy shade when in a restaurant to block the world out so Bee could sleep, a blanket for in the car so he doesn't get too warm (I have the heating up alot so normal thick blankets would be too much). We have used it as a photography background! great for impromptu photos and to block out noisy backgrounds!
 Of course we have used it as a swaddle blanket too. Bee is a big 6 month old and is growing out of the smaller Velcro style swaddles but still absolutely loves to be swaddled to sleep so its a big relief to find a great swaddle blanket that I can continue to use, it literally is that big!

I can't wait for the warmer weather, I'm sure we will be using it in many other ways! A big thumbs up from mummy and Bee!
