Shit every mom needs...

My current favorite baby items are aden + anais blankets. Especially these bamboo ones: as seen in the second picture. We also have a pretty pink collection and a green set I bought from Target before I knew Juliette was a girl (top and bottom of post) The pink and green sets each came with 3 patterned and one white blanket.  They.kick.ass.  You can use them to swaddle of course but they also work as a nursing cover and to cover the infant car seat to protect from sun or light rain.  I HATE covering a babes face but I feel comfortable using these because the fabric is light and breathable. Almost gauze-like.  They are all soft but the bamboo ones are ridiculously so.  The patterns make me smile.  We also use them for tummy time.  I originally bought them because she was due in late July and I knew I would want to swaddle her and couldn't imagine using a traditional blanket.  I fell in love with them.  They also make a "lovie" that babysteals has from time to time.  I recommend them, especially as a gift for a new (or not so new) mama. You can also find them at and (to name a few)

We adore those blankets. Stephen is nearly a year and we still use them :-)
