Before Chris bought me the awesome Lassig diaper bag, people would be amazed that when I go out on playdates with friends, I simply carry along my small handbag with Hunter’s stuff in there. And whilst I have a much bigger diaper bag now, I still don’t like digging through 298204 items inside just to get the item I want.
Soooo.. I put my super-awesome thinking cap *ahem* on, and decided there are 3 must-have items for me/Hunter, that potentially can be consolidated:
- Stroller blanket – necessary when we step into a mall and it’s a bit chilly so I want to cover his legs.
- Security blanket – heard that a blankie with tags around the edges are moat popular for babies to fiddle with.
- Nursing cover – for when I breastfeed him when we’re out, which is every day.
I could easily purchase all 3 individually, but couldn’t find ONE item that covered all 3 criteria. So I decided to design and custom-make it.
I decided on the material and colours and dimensions I wanted, then found someone on Etsy that was willing to make one for me. 2 weeks later, it arrived!
I LOVE it.
The adorable dino print just makes me smile, and the flip side is a turquoise minky material that is so ultra soft and plush. Hunter loves fiddling with all the tags too! It provides just enough cover for when I’m breastfeeding, and keeps his legs warm when I clip it onto the stroller.
It really is multi purpose, looks cute, and takes up way less room than if I’d carried each item with me. It’s simply fab for babies and mums!!
