We went to Central Park almost every single day this summer- and on the days we weren’t there, we were on our roof deck sitting in the grass giving our baby fresh air and tummy time (which over the course of the summer progressed into full on walking- it happens so fast!) Our number one priority before we left the house was grabbing the JJ Cole Essentials Blanket.
I don’t think you can truly appreciate how great this blanket is until you are sitting on grass that has been recently watered, and while all of your friends and their babies are sitting on regular blankets and getting soaked, you’re totally dry.
It is silky soft, waterproof, and a good size, so it keeps the whole family comfortable. When you’re ready to leave it folds up into a messenger bag shape with a strap for easy carrying. In our family it will be used well beyond the baby years for outdoor concerts and picnics in the park or at the beach.
I love this blanket, and think it’s the perfect baby shower gift.
