Geffen Baby Fladdle Review
Nurses love to swaddle. They take that little newborn baby and turn him into a well packaged baby burrito. Right after birth, after baby and I bonded, a team gave him a health check and handed him back to me resembling something from Taco Bell. Swaddling is an art and many babies enjoy being wrapped snugly well into toddlerhood. I’m thrilled to share this product from the Geffen Baby line. This Made in the USA super soft Flat/Swaddle, or Fladdle, is a hemp/organic cotton fleece dream. It can be used either as a swaddle (seen here) or as a flat diaper. Here’s some information and my little one testing this out swaddled:
The Geffen Baby fladdle is one of the many high-quality fiber made in the USA products they make. It can be used both as a swaddle and as a flat. While I haven’t used it as a flat cloth diaper on my baby, you can see it as a swaddle and in his adorable cloth diaper below.

About the Fladdle. Below you can see it compared to a traditional flannel swaddler (light blue stripes) and an Aiden and Anais muslin blanket (blue elephants). The Fladdle is smaller then both of these blankets in length, but slightly larger then the flannel swaddler in width. It’s 30 x 30″ and not quite big enough for my 6 week old baby in this photo, who is already up to 15 lbs. I have big babies, but I can swaddle him under his arms. The Fladdle is so super soft I wish we had it at the hospital!! While it can function as a flat diaper, I’ve been primarily using it to tuck him into his swing. It’s perfect next to his skin and I like the feel too.The soft hemp/organic cotton fleece is serged perfectly around the edges and comes with a single Geffen Baby tag. My wish for this blanket is that it is super sized! As you can see my little man has outgrown a full swaddle in it, but I would love to have this as large as the Muslin Swaddle below. It would be perfect! Next….adult sized! This would make an amazing blanket for the bed.
The only downsides I can see here are size, as you can see my baby is a bit too large to be swaddled in this, and cost. While great quality, these are higher in price than some other flats and swaddles on the market.
About the company.

They manufacturer textiles they produce right in their own backyard (I’m not sure how literal that is) and created the only 60% hemp 40% organic cotton fabric in the industry. They use eco-friendly packaging and make 95% of their products in the USA, which helps reduce their carbon footprint created both during the manufacturing and transport of products from factory to customer homes. I smiled when I received an envelope containing this Fladdle to my home. There was a big Made in the USA sticker right on the envelope! If you love supporting USA companies that make great baby products then you should definitely go Geffen. Where do you find the Fladdle?
