Back in December 2012 I become a mum for the second time. Whilst searching for products that would help make my life easier when out and about with my boys, I came across a number of articles highlighting the dangers of putting babies in winter suits or coats whilst in their car seat. This was joy to my ears as stress levels rose on many occasion trying to get Joshua in and out of his winter suit.
This is when my mum came to the rescue with my original hand-knitted Cocoon car seat blanket. Not only did it have holes for the straps, it buttoned up to keep Joshua cosy and warm whilst also looking fantastic!
I was stopped in the street regularly by strangers asking where I had bought the blanket, which led me to realise that every parent needs a Cocoon in their car seat.
So, whilst on maternity leave the idea to produce the Cocoon car seat blanket was born and in early 2014 www.cocoonbabies.co.uk was launched.
Below are just a few of the many many comments I have received from very happy customers:
“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.”
