Grey Marl Miracle Blanket
Help your baby sleep better with the 100% cotton knit Miracle Blanket...One size fits all babies, up to approx 4 months!
With the Miracle Blanket it's easy to get the perfect swaddle every time, even in the dark! Help your baby sleep better, longer and be less fussy since your baby will finally get the sleep they (and you) so desperately need.
The fabric is a super soft cotton knit 2-3 layers of T-shirt weight cotton, so a warmer option than many fitted swaddles.
You can also adapt the way the wrap is used to combine with a light sleeping bag or to reduce the layers. This is our most secure wrap so it is still the best option for Houdini babies who need very secure wrapping.
Available in a range of plain colours and cute designs, it's best to get two so when one is in the wash you have a second one handy!
Fabric: 100% cotton, the fabric is the weight/style of a T-shirt
- Approx 0-4 months
- Measures 55cm long from shoulder to feet, and can be used down to chest height
- Can also be used over a sleeping bag once your baby is too long for the foot pouch, see video below for more info
Miracle Blanket over a Sleeping Bag:
If your baby is in a Sleeping Bag and still likes to be swaddled, or has a strong startle reflex and needs firm swaddling, it's great to use a Miracle Blanket over the Sleeping Bag. It can be used with one or both arms inside the wrap, and is excellent for gradually weaning baby off being wrapped, if your baby is too long for the Miracle Blanket pouch just leave their feet out.
Summer Swaddling with the Miracle Blanket:
The Miracle Blanket is one of the warmer fitted wraps so we recommend a slight change to the way you use your Miracle Blanket over a bag in the summer months:
- Put the shorter wing down by baby's side, rather than wrapping it over the chest
- Only wrap the long side round baby once rather than twice.
It can also be combined with a light summer sleeping bag for older babies who still need a very firm swaddle, see our instruction video below.
Please ensure your baby is not rolling if you are using a sleeping bag and wrap together. If your baby still needs to be swaddled and can roll, we highly recommend you either leave at least one arm out of the wrap or use a Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap to keep your baby safely on their back.

Iâve found the unprinted/ plain wraps give a firmer hold which is great for an older baby. Have found the printed ones seem to have slightly more stretch in the fabric and my 11 week old breaks out more easily where as doesnât in the plain wraps.
A must have!

Brought one of these after seeing a recommendation and not disappointed at all! As first time parents with a very wriggly, colic baby it was hard enough just dressing the baby, let alone swaddling! These are so easy to put on and they became a great sleep cue and made baby feel safe and secure, most of the time he would be a lot calmer once wrapped. Probably one of the best things I brought :)
Worked beautifully for our 2nd

We swaddled our 1st with muslin and used these for our 2nd. WAAAY easier to get this right in the middle of the night. We still have muslins for all the other things muslins get used for, but for swaddling it's our miracle blankets every time :)

We bought two miracle blankets from The Sleep Store at the Baby Expo when I was pregnant and very new and confused about the whole baby swaddling game. I was also gifted a few other types of swaddles, but hands down the miracle blankets were the best for our baby. She was a little Houdini/escape artist in other wraps/swaddles but the miracle blankets were the only wraps she couldn't escape from. It wraps around itself a few times to keep them in tight. It doesn't have Velcro - we tried others with Velcro but if we had to get her out at night (eg to change nappy) the noise of undoing it startled and woke her up too much. We had her in these blankets until she started rolling at four months old. It was really easy to transition her out of them - we just started by wrapping with one arm out, then both. Would definitely recommend this product.

Swaddling is so hard, and yet these make it a breeze. These save my sanity during the day and help baby go to sleep so beautifully. Only 4 stars though cos changing a nappy is not so easy in this in comparison with other swaddles.

My little one was constantly breaking out of all the swaddles we had tried on him and we were even starting to think he didn't like to be swaddled. One of the staff members of The Sleep Store recommended the Miracle Blanket. It changed everything! My little one could not break out of this one, slept for longer and it calmed him down everytime I wrapped him up in this. This wrap is also adaptable in warmer weather as you don't have to wrap the blanket around as many times.
I highly recommend this blanket for all those Houdini babies out there!
Super easy to use
By Ruzan from Auckland on 4 November 2018
I used Miracle blanket for few weeks only because my baby didn't like to be swaddled and honestly I didn't persist much but I must say these blankets are just great. They are so very easy to use. I have no idea how to swaddle baby with wraps so this was a lifesaver. I can use this even with closed eyes it's that easy:) Quality is very good and it is quite soft. Comes in few designs and they are all gorgeous. I can say that few times I used it, my baby slept much better so I'd recommend this blanket to new parents and keep using it even if at first your baby doesn't like it. It will be very beneficial both for your and your baby's sleep.

Oh my goodness - this swaddle may have just saved my sanity... My poor little 7 week old boy (aka mr suffering with mild silence reflux so wakes up every 10 sec - 6 mins in his cot day and night due to his sensitivity to Moro reflex, only sleeps in someone's arm, Houdini of all swaddles, rides up his armless sleeping bag) is FINALLY sleeping without my aid...!!! He's slept 2 hours straight, then now again for an hour and half (and counting). Definitely the best swaddle for anyone who has a baby who is a light sleeper due to reflex! I'm buying my back up swaddle today!
By Koren from Auckland on 5 August 2018
Iâve used the miracle blanket for just under a week now, and it has seriously made a difference. Heâs gone from 2-3 hourly sleeps overnight to 5 hours. Those extra couple of hours have given me my sanity back, so thank you!!!

I love the Miracle wrap and so did both of my girls - I was given one for my first daughter, and when my second arrived I had to purchase a second (Reflux, so needed a puke backup!) This wrap is the only way I could get my girls to sleep on their backs. It's easy to use, baby is secure as, warm as, and nappy changes are easy without having to completely re-wrap bubs. Highly recommend this product!

Help your baby sleep better than you ever imagined with this 100% cotton knit Miracle Blanket.
The Miracle Blanket makes it easy to get the perfect swaddle every time, even in the dark!
Your baby will sleep better, longer and will be less fussy since he/she will finally get the sleep they (and you) so desperately need.
The fabric is a super soft cotton knit selected for several good reasons: It’s breathable so that it can be used in warm climates while still being luxurious enough to keep your baby warm in cooler places; It has just enough stretch to absorb your baby’s movements without coming undone but it’s not so stretchy that it won’t stay tight; And, most importantly, it stands up to constant use and washing. Like any baby fabric, you should wash it in the cold cycle and dry it on the delicate cycle.
The Amazing Miracle Blanket Uses No Knots, Buttons, Straps, Velcro, Snaps, Zippers or Other Confusing Adjustments.
One Size Fits All Babies up to Four Months!
Is the Amazing Miracle Blanket Perfect? You Decide:
- Stops or reduces fussiness.
- Helps baby sleep better, deeper and longer.
