Those of you who know me, know that I always claim that I'm not a "blanket person." There are some moms who love blankets, they have a different blanket for their baby for every day of the week and a few alternates, just in case. For the first 10 months of Matthew's life, I could really care less about what I threw over him during the day, and relied on sleepsacks for bedtime. Then I discovered Australian muslin swaddling blankets and fell in love. With generous 47" x 47" proportions, these cloths make wrapping even the biggest of babies a breeze. They're lightweight but warm enough to take the chill out of a cool night, and my favorite feature is that they just keep getting softer and more snuggly each time you wash them. I really wish someone would make an adult sized one ;).
I just found these muslin blankets at Bambino Land - I love their colorful designs! I bought a set of blankets and burp cloths for a friend who's having a baby, but now that I see their new pastel solids, I may just need to get a three-pack for my baby girl who's coming this fall...
