I love these blankets! They are great for swaddling, because they're way bigger than your standard receiving blanket. They're also good to drape over a stroller to keep out the sun, or to throw over your shoulder when you're nursing. I like that it folds down really small for travel, and the babe loves how soft it is. It did get a bit pilly with repeated washes, but I'm hoping after a few more, they'll go away.
