If you're looking for a lovely for your baby, the Ku Ku Bird Security Blankie from Kushies is really cute and pretty unique as lovies go. There's a cute bird coming out of one end with a long neck and wings. It's colorful, soft, and perfect for a baby.

I probably love baby blankets because they are so much softer than adult blankets. And I love being able to wrap up Andy in something super soft and comfortable.The blankets by Sugarplum Creations at Etsy look super luxurious and I'm sure any baby would love them. They are colorful with fun prints and some really lush fabrics. Some of my favorite designs include Secret Garden, Fighter Planes, and Princess Petals.

One of my biggest issues last summer with a newborn baby was that he couldn't be out in the sun. My pediatrician told me not to put sun screen on him until he was six months old, but by that point it was already well into fall and I wasn't outside much anymore. I really wish I had the Baby Summer Wrap with UV Protection back then. It only allows 1/30th of the sun's UV rays to pass through, it's very lightweight so your baby stays cool, and it's easy to pack and travel with too. If you plan on being outside with a newborn a lot this summer, I think this is a wise purchase.

Our friends over at Really Natural have written a review on a Kee-Ka Organic Cotton Baby Blanket. Definitely check it out if you are in the market for a baby blanket or like organic products!
You may remember Secure2Me, the blanket that clips to your stroller, car seat or wherever else you need a blanket for your baby, which we wrote about last month. We love this idea and could have used it a ton of time since Andy was born. The company was kind enough to send us a blanket to review for you all!

When you think of cashmere, you probably think about how expensive it is and how it's definitely a luxury (unless you're richer than the Hilton sisters, and then you probably buy whatever you want whenever you want and I'm quite envious). However, The Pashmina Store has come out with Cashmere Baby Blankets that won't break the bank. These blankets are handmade in Nepal Retailing at $59, they are available in seven colors and are Grade A cashmere (which the site says is the best). We aren't sure how long this price will last, so consider buying one now if you're interested!

I have about a thousand baby blankets or various different shapes, styles, and textures. However, one of my favorites is one that a former boss made for me that has a bunch of different prints so I can play games with it with Andy. I like how interactive it is; it's so much more than a regular blanket. Therefore, I think the Interactive Play Quilt is a great idea. Each square (16 in total) has a flap with a picture underneath. There are matching pictures, so you can play a memory game with the quilt. It's handmade, an easy game to bring anywhere, and it obviously can be used as a regular blanket as well. I think it'd be great to keep in the car so you always have a game in case you suddenly need one (as well as a way to keep your child warm or a place for him to sit if you suddenly end up at the park or at the beach.

I'm realizing how much I love vintage children's fabrics such as the one on the Receiving Blanket by Eloise & Etienne. I just love the look of the circus animals here. It's so classic and yet somehow so new and fresh. This blanket has a 32 inch diameter. Because of availability of the vintage fabrics, your blanket may not look just like this one, so check to make sure you like what you are getting before ordering. But I think with almost any vintage fabric, you'd end up with a beautiful blanket either way.

Yesterday I wrote about the issue of bottles falling when you take your little one for a walk. Today I'll cover another potential issue when using your stroller: the weather. Sometimes you want to walk, but it's just a little nippy out. The Secure2Me Blanket is a great alternative. The blanket has a non-pinch clip on each corner that you can use to secure the blanket wherever you need to, such as the stroller. You can also use it in the car, on a baby swing, a baby carrier or sling, baby carrier, infant seat, and even as a nursing cover-up that won't fall off. There are a bunch of different fabric choices in the collection, with Licorice and the Blue and Pink Chiffons being my personal favorites.

* baby star * has some new fabrics out in time for Spring. I always love the fabrics that they choose, it's hard not to buy something in every design! You can choose between bibs, blankets, burp clothes, diaper burps, minis, and throws in these great fabrics.
