We received the Essentials Bundle from a friend when our son was born, and instantly fell in love with the material, the softness, and the style of these blankets and items. I bought this blanket so we can always have one with us, no matter where we are. We absolutely love it and I'm trying to think of an excuse to buy another, too! I highly recommend this blanket (in any pattern!). They are soft, stylish, and a great size to grow with baby.
