My daughter is now a whopping three-and-a-half years old and has pretty much left anything and everything she did as a baby far behind her. These days she claims to be a "really big girl" because she no longer uses a pacifier, drinks from a sippy cup or wears diapers.
There is one thing though that still remains from her early years and that's her trusty baby blanket. Why would Riley continue to hold on to a blanket which is much too small for her even when she claims to be a full-fledged big girl? Because this blanket is one of the softest minky-style blankets I could find back when I was pregnant. Whether spending the night at grandma's, watching TV on the couch or snuggling in bed while she's sick, Riley's special blanket always makes her feel better.
As special as this blanket is to Riley, in the end, it's just a piece of cloth and all blankets are made the same, right? Wrong! Just when you thought that nothing new could be done to improve upon a blanket, mompreneur Cheri from Keep 'Em Cozy...By Oz, went and designed one that's innovative, practical and especially luxurious. Keep reading to learn more!
The amazing stroller blanket from Keep 'Em Cozy...By Oz is equipped with a front, double accessory pocket. This large, double pocket is a terrific idea for storing favorite toys, healthy snacks or drinks and even warming tiny hands while on the go. It also has an ingenious gathered bottom pocket so that your child's tootsies stay nice and warm no matter what. You also will no longer have to fight the infamous battle of "stroller blanket drag."
I don't know how many times I would have to tuck and re-tuck Riley's blanket in around her while traveling in our stroller. Before long though, her blanket would come undone again and I would start making icky track marks all over it. How unsanitary and gross! Now with the Keep 'Em Cozy stroller blanket, those days are a thing of the past.
Your child will stay warm and comfortable and their blanket will never come into contact with a dirty floor. This blanket also works perfectly with both infant and convertible car seats, making it an essential travel item for the next time you hit the road.
Those two features alone are enough to make this one amazing blanket, but just wait, it gets even better. The Keep 'Em Cozy child's blanket is made of two layers. The top layer is composed of a bright, patterned cotton material while the borders and underside of the blanket are made from the softest minky fabric around. This is the exact same material that Riley's favorite baby blanket is composed of, which is why she still loves it so.
Keep 'Em Cozy...By Oz even thought to make the cleaning process for this blanket quick and painless too. This stroller blanket is 100% machine washable, making it a cinch to clean. The best thing is that Cheri of Keep 'Em Cozy...By Oz even takes custom orders, so if you have a particular color palette or pattern in mind, she can work with you to make the blanket of your dreams!
Since receiving the new Jessie Circle Print with Ivory Minky Stroller Blanket, Riley has actually put her old baby blanket down for a while and used this one! Now that's an unprecedented move! She's always reminded me a bit of Linus from Peanuts, but once Riley felt the soft, luxurious feel of minky fabric, coupled with the neat front and bottom pockets of this innovative stroller blanket, I think Riley might have found a new favorite.
If you have a small child or know someone who does, I can guarantee that one of the gorgeous, handmade blankets from Keep 'Em Cozy...By Oz will be well received indeed!
