Our Story

Our Story pic

Hi. I’m Vicki and I started Tiny Chipmunk in 2016. I had two young children at the time and I was looking to create something a bit special - that I would use on my own baby.

I’m a big fan of swaddling (both my babies were swaddled until they started to roll and I’m sure they slept better as a result). I also love muslins (I use them for everything and always have them to hand) Tiny Chipmunk was born, as I wanted to create high quality products that looked great, were functional, environmentally friendly and the best quality for your baby. It has to be something I would wrap my own baby in - and I’m proud that we’ve achieved this! In fact, the baby pictured on this site is my own!

I wanted to expand the range beyond swaddle blankets, as bamboo is a fantastic, natural material and perfect for a baby’s sensitive skin.

I now also sell bamboo hooded baby towels (complete with a cute chipmunk face!) with plenty more products in the pipeline.

In July 2017 we were awarded Gold and Silver in the Loved By Parents awards for the 100% bamboo muslin swaddle blankets

I’ve been overwhelmed with how the brand has done so far and I hope you love the products and enjoy using them with your own children, as much as I do with mine!

Why we love bamboo

  • Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on Earth (it can grow up to 4 feet a day) and requires no fertilisers, no pesticides, and very little water, compared to cotton.

  • The insulating properties of bamboo naturally help keep your baby stay warmer in cool temperatures and cooler in warmer temperatures.

  • It’s breathable and absorbs and evaporates moisture faster than any other fabric. It will also absorb your scent, which can help with your baby’s sleep.

  • The lack of chemicals used in the production process make it perfect for your baby’s sensitive skin.

  • It’s good for the environment (and your conscience too)!

  • It’s as soft as cashmere and doesn’t stick or cling to skin.

  • It’s naturally hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial and deodorising.

  • It’s UV resistant, so perfect for covering up your little one on a sunny day.

Why Swaddle?

  • For thousands of years, mothers all over the world have swaddled their babies. Swaddling helps your baby to feel safe and secure and is a great way to soothe them. It can even help your baby sleep longer!

  • Swaddling is said to recreate the secure and cozy feeling of the womb. While being wrapped up tightly in a blanket might not sound appealing to parents, it can help babies sleep better and cry less. It also prevents unnecessary wakes ups due to the startle (moro) reflex.

How To Swaddle

  • 1. Place the swaddle in a diamond shape. Fold the top down to make a triangle. Place your baby in the centre with their shoulders just below the fold.

  • 2. Put your baby’s right arm next to their body, slightly bent. Pull the right side of the swaddle securely across your baby’s chest, keeping their right arm under the fabric. Tuck the swaddle under your baby, leaving their left arm free.

  • 3. Fold the bottom of the swaddle up and tuck in.

  • 4. Place your baby’s left arm next to their body, slightly bent. Wrap the remaining fabric over your baby's arm and chest. Tuck underneath your baby to secure.
