10 to 12 Baby Lounge’s Animal Blankets: Why Do the Animals Have a Backstory?

Today’s society is full of new moms — in fact, the number of new moms has increased immensely in the U.S. over the past few years. Compared to 2006, when a single woman had an average of 1.86 children, the average number of children a single woman had in 2016 increased to 2.07. So chances are, you either have or will have a new mom in your life sometime in the future.

And if you’re looking for first time mother gifts, 10 to 12 Baby Lounge’s cashmere baby blanket collection is the perfect option. If your curious about this collection and the reason why we give our animal blankets background stories, keep on reading.

 

Why Do Our 10 to 12 Animals Travel?

 

Our cashmere animal blankets are so much more than just soft and cuddly. At 10 to 12 Baby Lounge, we understand that each and every baby is unique, and we wanted to create products that are just as unique as them. This is why we give each of our animal baby blankets a backstory, filled with fun adventures.

 

Our newest addition to the collection is Liam the Lion. He loves to travel, originally coming from Mozambique in Africa. We wanted him to have been bitten by the travel bug to encourage kids to learn to love not only traveling but learning about different cultures as well.

 

We want every baby and child who has one of our blankets to feel encouraged to imagine and explore — and starting as young as possible. Our cute, friendly-looking blankets can be one of the first friends babies get during their lifetime, which is a truly special bond. Cashmere for babies is something they’ll find comfort in cuddling with, and our cute animal friends make them even better.

 

So if you’re looking for first time mother gifts, you should consider these animal cashmere baby gifts. They’re special, unique gifts for babies that can be a big part of their lives. For any baby or new mom in your life, these blankets are sure to be a gift they’ll remember and cherish forever.

Best Gifts for First Time Moms

There are not many things more intimidating than being a first time mommy. It can seem like the only way to learn what to do is to pretend like you actually know what you’re doing for the sake of your baby and the sake of your own sense of personal balance. Fake it ’till you make it, right?

Luckily, there are some new items at 10 to 12 Baby Lounge that can make the first time mommy life a little bit easier and a whole lot cozier for the loving new mommies and babies in your life. Our timeless cashmere pieces for mommy and baby make the best gifts for first time moms, perfect gifts for baby showers or for no occasion at all! In fact, go ahead and indulge yourself in them as well. Once you give one as a gift, no doubt you will want to covet them for yourself and your own little one too. From the ultimate baby security blankets to heartwarming gift sets with unique pieces like cashmere baby booties, here are a few of our favorite best gifts for first time moms!

Swaddle Blankets

Swaddling is one of the most important things to master as a new mama. There are countless reasons to swaddle your baby, and do it correctly. It stimulates sleep continuity, which is a major goal for a new mom. When swaddled the right way, your baby will likely sleep better and longer. Because they will be all bundled up, they won’t be able to startle themselves awake with a flailing arm or the twitch of a leg. It is also a very effective soothing technique. While they may fuss a bit initially, research has shown a large reduction in crying when babies are swaddled properly. The most important reason for swaddling is that it reduces the chance of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. When swaddled, a baby has much smaller chance of somehow covering their heads with a pillow or blankets, or rolling over onto their stomach, both of which can potentially be fatal.

10 to 12’s new ‘Stretch Me’ Blanket Set includes the perfect swaddle blanket for little ones. It is made of the highest quality cashmere, silk, and wool, creating the ideal stretchiness, warmth, and comfort that a baby should get from a swaddle blanket. The vast benefits of the Stretch Me blanket are actually in its name! The majority of swaddle blankets are restrictive and reinforce sleeping in an unusual position, which can put an infant at risk for hip dysplasia and impeded breathing. The Stretch Me blanket stays secure while allowing for natural joint mobility, meaning that baby gets all the benefits of swaddling without the potential hazards of most swaddle blankets. Not only that, but the set also comes with a cashmere plush Gavin or Kiwi toy that can accompany a little one on all sleeping endeavors. This is by far one of the best gifts for first time moms. Her baby will literally be a bundle of joy!

Security Blankets

Baby security blankets are of large importance of their own. They are the ultimate transitional objects for babies to grow their independence, meant to mimic the effects of a mother’s womb for the baby. Particularly during the “fourth trimester,” what we call months 10 to 12, a baby can start to feel confused and overwhelmed by the stimulus outside mommy’s belly, deeming baby security blankets ideal gifts for first time moms to comfort their little ones.

You may know of 10 to 12 Baby Lounge’s Gavin the Goat and Kiwi the Cat timeless cashmere baby blankets, but 10 to 12 Baby Lounge has recently introduced two more friends to the family! Meet Liam the Lion and Penelope the Poodle. These are the same beautiful, 100% machine-washable, non-toxic cashmere blankets, with exciting new friends to choose from to match each little one’s personality. These baby blankets include unique personal touches; each comes with a story booklet about the character on the blanket, hand embroidery and bright pom poms that promote sensory play, so baby can learn about their new friend as they grow up together!

Cashmere Baby Booties

New mamas are naturally protective and careful about their babies, and therefore want them to be as warm and protected as possible when going out into the big, new world. 10 to 12 Baby Lounge’s new Stepping Out Deluxe Cashmere Gift Set has everything little ones need to be cozy and comfy, and it comes in both Foggy grey and Ivory white. This too-cute-to-be-true set for newborns includes a Baby Wrap, Baby Hat, Baby Mittens and 10 to 12 Baby Lounge’s NEW gold or silver bottomed cashmere shoes. Our cashmere shoes are lined with butter-soft genuine leather with an adjustable strap, and all shoes are made in Portugal still following 10 to 12 Baby Lounge’s strict standard for eco-friendly production. All of these clothing items are a blend of the finest cashmere and cotton, ensuring the most comfort and lounge-chic style for little ones. These all-inclusive sets have everything a new baby will need for their first adventures out into the world, making them genius gifts for first time moms. Can you think of a more keepsake first pair of shoes to gift?!

And with that, we hope you feel more prepared to provide your friends and loved ones with the best gifts for first time moms. The options don’t stop here, though. 10 to 12 Baby Lounge’s new fall line is full of luxurious new products for mommies and babies alike!
