I bought James an Aden and Anais Dream Blanket online. I was hoping it would be worth the $50 I spent on it. I was pleasantly surprised. It is a huge sized blanket, and soft as soft can be, even unwashed. I am personally very happy with it, and it will be great for cuddling with baby in the glider. So if you are balking due to the price, it is a very nice quality blanket that I think will last quite awhile. I can't wait to wash it and see how much softer it gets over time!
I also bought him two Issies, which are also good quality and will be great little security blankets. They come two to a pack so that you can have a replacement if one is being washed or is lost.
