As a new (girl) mom, I quickly ended up with a huge collection of baby blankets, in just about every shade of pink you can imagine. (If you’re a boy mom, I’m sure your collection consists of one too many shades of blue!) And while I’ve loved all of Adeline’s sweet blankets and hold them all near and dear to my heart, they all scream BABY. Now that Adeline is more of a toddler, and less of a squishy little peanut, I really wanted her to have a big girl blanket – one that’s a little more mature, sophisticated, and fun.
I searched high and low for the perfect new blanket, but I had several stipulations.
- It had be insanely soft. I wanted Adeline’s new blanket to be her comfort blanket, and one that she would want to cuddle with for years to come.
- It had to be pretty, girly, and “uniquely her”. I wanted it to be a blanket that seemed to match her style and personality.
- It had to be stylish and more mature than the typical baby blanket. I wanted a pattern that could grow with her through her toddler years.
Thankfully, back before Christmas, I randomly stumbled across Bear Cubs Co on Instagram and was instantly hooked! I drooled over every one of their blankets and quickly stalked their Etsy page before finally narrowing it down to one I just had to have. Of course, I really feel like I need them ALL in my life, but when I saw the Boho Floral blanket I just knew it would be perfect for Adeline. The rose petals, the feathers, and the rustic floral vibe I knew would be perfect for both her current nursery, and her future “big girl room”.
Bear Cubs Co is owned by a fellow mama and she makes beautiful custom lovey blankets and full blankets in baby and toddler sizes. Her fabric choices are phenomenal, and trust me, it’s hard to pick just one favorite! She also offers different fur backings – most often llama or sherpa. If you need something other than a blanket, she’s your girl – burp cloths, crib sheets, changing pad covers – she’s got you! I’m obsessed with just about every item in her shop, and if we ever have a boy I’ve got my favorites already bookmarked! (Crazy much??)
Her ordering process is super simple, customizable, and she’s a joy to work with! I had to change my shipping address at the last minute and she was more than willing to be patient with me! I will say this though – as soon as you place your order, STOP LOOKING! Seriously, I almost changed my order like 10 times because I LOVE THEM ALL SO MUCH.
I ordered Adeline’s blanket as a Christmas gift, (hence why some of these photos are from the holidays!) and ever since she’s been dragging it all over the house, curling up with it in her anywhere chair, sleeping with it, and we take it on most of our walks with us as well as in the car on chilly days. You’ve probably seen it on my Instagram or in my stories a few times. It’s literally the softest thing ever, and I’m a little bit jealous of her sleeping situation every night when I put her to bed. The girl’s bedding is waaaaay softer than mine!
I ordered the “baby” size because I worried the toddler size might be a little too big for her car seat and stroller. I didn’t want a huge blanket by any means so I think the “baby” size is the perfect compromise. It’s plenty big for my 21 pounder and will definitely be big enough for the foreseeable future. Once we move her to her toddler room, I’m thinking a “toddler” size would be perfect for her bed! But for now, it’s perfect!
