How do you make sure that your baby's
Answer: You make 5 of them.
This summer I faced a dilemma. Sophie NEEDS a blanket (with the corner stuffed in her mouth) to fall asleep. And with a blanket, she can sleep pretty much anywhere. So her blanket is a powerful tool. The dilemma though, was that it's 115 degrees in Arizona during the summer - not exactly blanket weather when she's trying to sleep in her car seat. My solution was to make super-mini summer blankets. I bought 2 types of fabric - silky & flannelly, and made her 2 blankets - both with a soft velvety back.
Well, last night, both blankets were dirty, so I decided, after Sophie went to bed, to use my extra material to make some more blankets. Boy did I have a happy baby this morning. She hardly knew what to do with so many blankets. She just kept trading off, checking all of them out (all 12 corners). She's in blanket heaven.
And I don't have to worry about a dirty or lost blanket anymore.
