  • positive review  Got my delivery a couple of days after ordering, so super quick! I ordered a comforter & Large blanket, they are honestly unreal😍 Super super soft which is great as my baby is really funny with what he will fall to sleep comforter wise so wasn’t sure if he would take to the feel of a new material, gave it to him before bed which is usually a struggle😂 fell asleep in minutes just stroking it! Ordering more already absolute life saver and deffo worth paying that extra bit more for... Thank you so much again can’t recommend you enough xx
