A working mum with a mission to share my Cocoon blanket with all new parents

Who we are

I'm Katie and in 2013 I had the idea and then started Cocoon Babies whilst on maternity leave.
Once upon a time I gave birth to two gorgeous boys and their births brought with them a sense of joy and a love like never before, along with a sense of stress, anxiety and tiredness in equal measures!
It was during my second period of maternity leave that I started to become aware of the increasing press around the dangers of putting babies in winter coats in the car seat.  In one sense this was music to my ears as wrestling my second son Joshua into his snowsuit each morning became an Olympic sport! 
Enter my mum to the rescue (and not for the first time, I may add!).  My mum offered to knit me a car seat blanket with holes for the straps which became the original cocoon blanket, the first of its kind on the market with poppers to keep the blanket safely secured whilst out and about.
It was from this that the concept of cocoon baby blankets were born with a focus on creating a design that was as functional and durable as cosy and stylish.  Fast forward a few years and the Cocoon is available in red, blue or pink with a range of new colours being added to the range in Autumn 2020.


Our family have loved them and I hope yours do too.  

Customer Reviews

Here's what our customers have had to say: 

The fleece is gorgeously soft and snuggly and the knit fabric looks super cute. I like how it poppers up so when we took him out in the cold he was like a little caterpillar snuggly and warm without having to fiddle him into a coat or snowsuit. It is without doubt the nicest blanket I've seen for car seats”

“Cocoon babies is an amazing product and has been one thing everyone notices and comments on how lovely it is and how clever the product is. We love the item and so does our newest member of the family”

“Easily the best thing we have got for our baby. She loves it and is very cosy in it. So handy when I take her in and out of the car. Would recommend it - it is brilliant”

“Love the cocoon, my little Logan fits all snug. Now I don't need to worry about trying to get a newborn to straighten his arms and legs to fit him in his full body coat! Quality is excellent, shipped super fast and well worth the money. Very pleased customer.”
