I don't know about y'all but I walked aorund the first year of my babies lives with a baby blanket practically glued to me. I carried them around as a means of keeping baby warm. I draped them over my shoulder as burp cloth backup. They served as means to keep sun out their eyes and cold air and wind from their eyes.
And I made them all myself. I made heaps of blankets. I made thick baby quilts and fluffy fleece blankies. I made receiving blankets and crib comforters. I even made crib bumpers, pillows, and fitted baby sheets. If it were possible I probably would have handmade the baby mattress myself!
