Blanket My Baby is offering aden + anais cozy swaddles to add to our terrific line of this industry leading brand. We have five different prints to choose from, and they are all adorable! The great thing about these blankets is that they are composed of the same muslin cotton that you love, but they just have a double layer of it.
It’s 96 degrees in Cincinnati today and cozy swaddles may be the last thing on your mind, but just like the ant and the squirrel, we believe in hard work and preparation. So yes, while it’s hot and all you may be able to think about now is how to escape the heat, soon enough, Old Man Winter will come blowing in. These blankets are perfect for cool walks in the park and cold nights at home. While keeping your baby warm, they still breathe well so that baby will not overheat.
The blankets are perfect for swaddling as well as play blankets, stroller blankets, and a number of other functional uses. The large 47 x 47 size gives you plenty of options. Enjoy. Find them all here!Filed under Info | Tags: aden and anais, cozy swaddles, Swaddling | Comment (0)
In an effort to expand our personalized line of products, which so many of you love, we are now offering personalized baby pillows! Yes, we are still BLANKET My Baby, but what goes better with a blanket than a pillow?
Right now, you can get these pillows in blue, pink or brown. The design on the front is a cute baby looking plaid with a large white space in the middle so that the name when embroidered will really pop. You can choose to get a personalized gift with a first name or choose to monogram the pillow. The pillow can be taken out of the pillow case to be washed if necessary, but we also have a velcro backing so that when your child walks around, it won’t be with just a pillow case.
Right now, these pillows go for $30.95 with a $5 fee if you want them personalized. Choose your font and color thread. PLUS, my favorite part is that the back of the pillow is composed of a super soft minky dot material. So, not only will they have their name, but they’ll love cuddling with this pillow. Check out the pics below.Info | Tags: embroidery, personalized baby pillows | Comment (0)

Well, we have officially entered the final trimester of our first baby. We’re so excited! But with all the excitement, it’s easy to have fear creep in as well. When it is your first baby, there are so many unknowns. We’re doing all we can to read up and be prepared, but no matter how much we read, we’re just going to have to go through the experience of labor to understand it. Thankfully, there are really a lot of helpful resources out there. I really like the bump. Here is a great article about having a birth plan. Of course, even if you have a plan, there are always unexpected factors that can creep into the delivery.
As we are getting closer to the due date, we are preparing our home more and more. We have finished painting our nursery (thanks mom!!!) and our crib and furniture are in the room. It’s taking steps like these that make the pregnancy so much more real and exciting. Of course, as baby is getting more and more active, it’s getting pretty hard to ignore!
We’re so thankful for friends and family who have asked about the pregnancy, and how we are doing. We’re even more thankful that we will have a support group and a community when this baby is born. We are excited to be parents, but are grateful for help.
We haven’t had a baby shower yet, but we have a few lined up. We’ve even marked off a few of our favorite baby blankets from our stock that we would love to have for our little guy or girl. Oh yeah, if I haven’t mentioned, it’s going to be a surprise. We will know the sex when he or she is born. Fun!
Here’s a pic of mama and baby on our babymoon to California.Info, Pregnancy | Tags: baby, birth plan, labor, Pregnancy | Comment (1)
There are certainly a number of different opinions out there about security blankets. Some parents will swear by them and say that a blanket becomes a comforting friend for their child. Other parents fear that a child may become too connected to a security blanket and will have a hard time weaning off. Both views are certainly possible. Here is an article from Science Daily that speaks a bit more about the pyschology of security blankets.
In our opinion, security blankets are a great item for babies (shameless plug), but just like anything else, they can become a problem. If a child finds comfort and avoidance from fear with a blanket friend, that can be a good thing. But as a parent, you need to monitor this closely and do a good job of parenting. A child can really get attached to anything and trust can be placed in the wrong object. It is the parents job, though a difficult one, to help train the child in where their real protection and trust comes from.
Blanket My Baby sells a number of security blankets, and our bestsellers are our Angel Dear blankies. If you go to our site and view these blankets, it doesn’t take long to see how these lovable lovies can become friends. The blankets are square shaped, but have the head of different animals such as lions, frogs, ducks, lambs, giraffes, hippos, tigers, dogs, cats, owls, mice, and even dinosaurs! Pick your favorite today and get it personalized or monogrammed for under $20 for the whole gift. This is a great deal! Plus, if your child subscribes to the security blanket lifestyle, you may want to stack up on 2 or 3.Filed under Baby Blankets, Info | Tags: angel dear, psychology, security blankets | Comment (0)
You’ve heard us rave about our aden + anais collection of blankets. And there’s a good reason for it! These are some of the best made baby blankets on the market today and Blanket My Baby offers them for the cheapest prices on the web. Plus, if you buy some for your friends, you can save even more with our flat rate shipping. Ok, ok, enough with the hard sell.
So, since we love aden and anais so much, we are going to offer a new blanket line from them, the Cozy Collection. Yes, I know it is summer. Yes, I know I just talked about how great muslin is for breathing well and not overheating your babies. Well, guess what, Fall and Winter will be here before you know it, and we are going to help you prepare. Aden and anais’ Cozy Collection line offers the same great muslin fabric, but in a double layer. Designed with fashion-forward prints and a double-layer of muslin, they are the perfect wrap for cold, wintery nights and brisk walks in the park. You can get them from us in a single wrap, and we’ll have them up on our sight pronto. Choose from styles like Dreamer, Mod Fish, Mod Frog, Star Light and Star Bright.Baby Blankets | Tags: aden and anais, cozy collection, double wrapped muslin | Comment (0)
Summertime is here! We just got back from a trip to California for our Babymoon (probably more pictures and stories to come), and then back to the Cincinnati climate. What does that mean? Humidity! And lots of it! You can bank on 90 degree weather with humidity this time of year and every year in the Ohio river valley. So, it doesn’t take long to go running for shade, air conditioning and a pool.
But what does this mean for your baby? For a baby, it’s very important to stay cool. If you take your baby outside, make sure you put on proper sunscreen care. And at night, a hot baby is a fussy baby. So, one idea is to use blankets that are lightweight and breathable. Our bestselling blankets by aden + anais are perfect for this job. The lightweight muslin is breathable and doesn’t make your baby sweat like a heavy cotton blanket. Combine these blankets with a cool room and you and your baby can sleep well even in the summer time.
Well, even though it’s hot, try to enjoy. Drink some lemonade. Take a walk with the stroller at night. If you don’t have a pool, a hose and a sprinkler work just as well. Enjoy the summer. Stay cool. Drink your fluids and love those babies!Uncategorized | Tags: aden + anais, mulsin, summer | Comment (0)
If you know anything about me, you know that I am a baseball fanatic. I love the game. I was born in Kalamazoo Michigan with Tiger baseball and the voice of Ernie Harwell (best broadcaster ever) on the radio. Once we moved to Cincinnati, it took me a while to adopt the Reds as my favorite team, but I have crossed over.
This last Saturday night, Witni and I went to the Reds game for the 2010 MLB Civil Rights game. It was quite a showing with Harry Belafonte, Billy Jean King and Willie Mays all being honored. On top of that, the Reds played amazing and took it to the Cardinals. It was one of the most exciting games I have ever been to because there was a sold out crowd (which is rare in Cincinnati), and the Reds won by tagging out the tying run in the top of the 9th with a play at the plate.
During the game, I realized that this was technically our baby’s (23 weeks) first baseball game ever. I won’t lie. I got a little emotional. What a game to go to!
I’ve attached a video that I made on Youtube to capture the great night. For cell phone pics, I was pretty pleased with the quality.
Can’t wait to have our little one born! He or she is fated to be a baseball fan!Filed under Info, Videos | Tags: baseball, civil rights game, reds | Comment (0)
