That's why this Fun and Hugs Baby Blanket has to be on your list of must-haves for when the baby arrives. This adorable, soft blanket is perfect for your child to stretch out on or for you to wrap your baby up in. It's the snuggest feeling they will ever experience — aside from when you hold them in your arms, of course.
