You will not find a teddy bear or duckie baby blanket anywhere in my house. I banished the cutesy stuff even before I had my first baby in 2004 (rumor has it I returned a ducky patterned diaper bag the day after my baby shower but I will neither confirm nor deny such a faux pas!)
No, this mom loves contemporary colors, great design and ultra-soft fabrics when it comes to baby bedding and other items.
When I was pregnant and scouting out crib bedding, I discovered Babylicious and was happily surprised to learn that this is a company based right here in Canada. Mom of 2 Tina Barkley’s eye for design has made Babylicious one of the leaders in baby bedding and accessories and I was fortunate enough to be able to check out a few products.
I was drawn to the Lovely collection from Babylicious because of the bright, bold, colors and clean lines. It’s so easy to match other nursery basics to these pieces (a solid lime receiving blanket or fuchsia wall decor for example).
We have the Lovely Yummy Blanket – measuring 38×30 and covered with a cozy plush on one side, cotton on the other – Extra Fitted Sheet (Small Dot) with a 200 thread count, and Hooded Towel. We use the Yummy Blanket daily now – it’s a great weight for evening walks or for road trips with the air conditioning on. Everleigh approves!
The Hooded Towel is actually so soft and has the same cotton on one side as the Yummy Blanket, that my husband mistook it for the blanket more than once – when he and the kids picked me up from the airport after BlogHer he had the towel on Everleigh in the van. Um…?
Use the Where to Buy Babylicious link on the site to find a retailer in Canada, the US, and beyond that carries Babylicious products. I found 3 retailers in my own province that I can find more Babylicious products at, the next time I’m there.
1 of my readers is going to win their own set of Babylicious items just like the ones seen here – the Lovely Yummy Blanket, Extra Fitted Sheet, and Hooded Towel. To enter, just visit Babylicious and leave me a comment here telling me where you can find Babylicious products near you.
