Heidi Klum has recently said that she is finding it hard to lose her baby weight after having her fourth child, Lou. Really? You think? The German supermodel is no longer a young little sprite. She’s now 36 and the mother of four kids with her husband, Seal. To quote from the article:
She said: “I wouldn’t say I’m back in shape yet. Everything changes when you get older. It was different when I was 31 with the first one and now being 36 with the fourth one.”
She is now hitting the treadmill and eating sensibly in a bid to get back in shape as she fears she will remain bigger forever if she doesn’t act now.
I can’t imagine the pressure that models have throughout their entire life to have a certain look. Especially after you have children, doesn’t this mindset change a bit? Or do models have to look that way for the rest of their life?
I believe there is a beauty that extends far beyond physical features that comes with motherhood. It is an incredible miracle to be able to give life to a little human being. We as a culture take this gift for granted far too often, and we worry far to much about things that don’t matter, such as weight.
Heidi, I know you’ll never read this, but it’s OK to not look like you are 26 as a Victoria’s Secret model. You are 36 and the mother of four. You can just be a mom now. :)Filed under Uncategorized | Tags: baby weight, heidi klum, motherhood, supermodel, Victoria's Secret | Comment (0)

We wanted to pass on this great video review done by our friends at EmbellishedMom.com. We’ve tried to tell you the amazing benefits of aden + anais blankets, but if you don’t believe us, here’s someone else’s word for it.
The video goes to show just how big these blankets are. You don’t really appreciate the full 47″ x 47″ untilit’s compared to another blanket. Because of it’s great size, these blankets are great for swaddling.
As of now, our stock of aden & anais has been running out because everyone is buying them up! Our $38.94 sale price is one of the best on the internet, since they normally retail for $44 a 4 pack. Combine that with our $5 flat rate shipping, and you have a fantastic deal! While our stock is diminishing, we plan on adding to it soon with many new patterns as well. Be sure to come back and check them out!Filed under Baby Blankets, Videos | Tags: aden and anais, review, sale, video | Comment (0)
Hey, it’s football season, and I need to share a little love for my Bengals. By the way, in case you haven’t heard, we’re 3-1, tied for first in the AFC North. Every week has been about a heart attack, but we’re getting it done. With some late quarter and overtime heroics, the Bengals have this fan believing once again. It appears that we have some winners on the team because in the past, the Bungles would find ways to lose games.
Among the ranks of the most interesting players on the team is of course Chad Ochocinco. Number 85 came up with a catch phrase in the offseason, “kiss da baby.” What does it mean? Well, he tells you in this clip from HBO’s hard knocks. Basically, “kiss da baby” means it’s all over. As Andre Whitworth said, “don’t line up against me because it’s over.” Here’s a youtube clip that shows the ever entertaining Chad ‘Esteban’ Ochocinco. NOTE. Strong language.
Ha! That guy cracks me up. As long as he keeps catching touchdowns, he can talk as much as he wants in my book.
Now, onto another NFL star who has some baby language. My all time favorite NFL player is Shaun Alexander, and back when he was a touchdown machine, he was also busy becoming a father with his beautiful wife. A few of my favorite touchdown celebrations of all time were his “rock the baby” and “burp the baby” (seen at 1:41 below).
Ok, so not exactly top discussion on baby blankets tonight, but hey, one of those little babies out there might become an NFL star. So tonight, as you tuck in your little one, make sure you “kiss da baby.”Filed under Funny, Videos | Tags: bengals, chad johnson, chad ochocinco, football, nfl, shaun alexander | Comment (0)
Some of the hottest blankets in the baby industry right now are animal blankets that are both a security lovie and a stuffed animal in one. Why pay for a teddy bear and a blanket when you can combine the two? We agree whole heartedly. And now, your little one can have their very own best friend to carry with them wherever they go. Why are security blankets so special? Because they have the unique ability to calm a child when they are upset or in a scary, new situation. When going out in public, these blankets help keep the children feeling safe and secure, which translates to a good day out for everyone.
Right now, Blanket My Baby is offering a full selection of Angel Dear baby blankets through our Amazon partners. Simply click on the product page of our site, and you will be directed to an aStore that offers great selection and low prices, only $12 per blanket. There is wide variety of animals to choose from:

We keep getting fantastic reviews from everyone who has purchased aden + anais muslin swaddling wraps. In fact, their fame is going international! Ok, I guess they’ve already been international since they were created by two Australian mothers. But, they are going international from Blanket My Baby. A recent buyer on our site loved them so much that she couldn’t stop raving about them to her mother, who lives in Canada. Thus, mama is going to buy a 4 pack for older sister who is expecting. I believe she is unsure of gender and so she is going with neutral colors, either sage or black and white. Both are safe choices and both will do a super job at swaddling. With winter coming up, the wood burning stove will be a blazing in Canada country. The lightweight, open weave muslin fabric is perfect to keep a baby warm and cozy without overheating. Check out our whole selection of in stock aden and anais blankets on sale now! They are only $38.95, and we are offering $5 flat rate shipping. So, save when you buy 2!Filed under Uncategorized | Tags: aden and anais, aden and anais review, black and white, Canada, muslin, sage blankets | Comments (2)

Ok, you’ve heard all the rage. You’ve read all the articles. You know that swaddling is a good idea for your baby. Not only can it help prevent SIDS, but it also provides a comforting, warm place for your baby. This of course leads to a good night’s sleep for your baby. And what does that mean for mommy and daddy? You guessed it! SLEEP!!! We know how important it is for parents to get a good night’s rest. If not, you’ll be walking around like my good friend Aaron “Harang-a-tang” Harang, who looks like the living dead most of the time.
Don’t wind up looking like this Reds pitcher. You can do better than that. So, here is a video to teach you how to swaddle your baby. You may ask which blanket is best for swaddling. We recently gave an aden and anais 4 pack to my brother and sister and law for their 4th child, and she swears by them. Little Hallie has been sleeping great with these blankies and your son or daughter can too. Shop for all of our swaddling blankets here. But first, a bit of instruction.
Now, go get some sleep!Filed under Info, Videos | Tags: aaron harang, how to swaddle, swaddle, Swaddling | Comment (0)
The ErgoPouch is the 2009 iParenting Media award winner for its safe design and quality fabric. The ErgoPouch is made of organic cotton to help control temperature and allergies. The ErgoPouch is a unique mixture between a baby blanket and sleeping bag. It is soft and light weight like a blanket, but it has the comfort of a sleep sack design. Also, a unique feature of the ErgoPouch is that it was developed with strech inserts to allow the baby to move freely without getting tangled. The fabric is highly breathable and safe for your baby.
The nice thing about a sleep sack blanket is that you simply zip up your baby inside. It’s designed to make diaper changes simpler, which is nice for every parent.
The pouch is made of alpaca fiber which is like wool, but softer. You don’t get the prickly sensation that often comes with wool. Also, it is lanolin free, which allows the blanket to be hypoallergenic. Every individual alpaca strand is hollow, which allows it keep your baby warm and cozy, but also be breathable. ErgoPouch also comes in organic cotton and bamboo.
