I love baby blankets. There is just something so adorable about them. But as a mom I have hated trying to find a blanket that is perfect for using with a stroller. If it covers their legs well the sides fall out and then catch in the wheels and now you have a dirty and in most cases for me wet blanket. If it’s not going to get caught in the sides then it isn’t long enough to cover their legs.
So I set out on a mission to appease the stroller riding hooligans that love evening strolls around the neighborhood. And that is how we got to this pretty little blanket.
