Bee officially turned seven months old this week and her obsession with fabric continues to grow stronger than ever, so my thoughts keep turning to security blankets and such. Of course, a forever blanket is a big deal (I can’t help but think of how many future photos it will be in, or if she’ll want to pass it on to her own children?), so I’ve been shopping around with a very selective eye. Here are some lovely options I’ve spotted (31 of them!) – just in case your little ones are in the market for a few of their own!:

I’m curious – at what age did you mamas give your babies a blanket in their crib? I have the most irrational fear of suffocation, so I’m hoping you’ll calm my nerves?

p.s. #7 above are my friend Jill’s blankets and they have the craziest story! She started making them when she was pregnant with her first daughter (who I actually used to babysit when I lived in California), and after she was born, her doula friend stopped by and commented on how great it was that the blankets were so silky. She’d learned in her classes that, apparently, newborns tend to calm down faster when they feel silky materials because it reminds them of the uterus lining! Isn’t that nuts? But it totally works – Jill’s always getting emails about how her “magic blankets” make babies less fussy.
p.p.s. Just for fun: The multi-tasking blanket!
