I recently purchased this swaddle blanket and have washed it twice (on gentle and per the washing directions on the label). I have used it only lightly with a newborn baby for one week. It is ripped at the seam already. I opted for Little Unicorn blankets over other reputable swaddle blankets I've used for years, hoping that the LU cute designs would also be coupled with quality. Unfortunately, this blanket is not what I hoped it would be. Apart from the tear at the seam, the blanket is thinner and clearly less well made than its competitor at the same price point.
