Fill in the Blankie!

Every baby needs a blankie. I vividly remember the bond I had with my special blanket. And I can't imagine how we would pass the night if for some reason my toddler son was without his special blanket. I've spent a lot of rocking hours contemplating the magic that these blankets hold. What causes us to chose one over the other? Why do they become our first best friends? What is this need we have to attach that is so strong nearly every child has it, yet that can be met by a blanket or stuffed animal?

The answers to these questions elude me. Suffice it to say, I was excited to learn about Fill in the Blankie when I was expecting my second son. I placed my order and eagerly awaited the final product.

I couldn't have been more pleased. The packaging itself was darling; the beautiful, soft, blue blanket was neatly folded and tied with a ribbon, held together with a baby diaper pin. If I hadn't been so exicted about the blanket I might have just kept the package intact to look at for a few weeks.

But of course I didn't. I was equally happy with the blanket itself. Professionally made, the stitching and fabric seem of good quality. All Fill in the Blankie's are made with 100% woven cotton with two inches of satin. It has washed well so far. And - melt my heart - there on all four sides are the words I chose for my son.

So consider this my official thumbs up for Fill in the Blankie. Whether you want one for your own child or have one in mind for a creative shower or baptism gift, you can choose the fabric, color, message, font - almost everything.

We'll see what fabric item my son chooses to pour his affections upon, but I know which one is my favorite.

We were given a very similar blanket for our oldest daughter and we loved it and so did she. She got really attached to "tiny blankie". If I'd known where to get one for baby #2 I totally would have. She is already attached to something else now.

Lovely blankies.
