We all know that babies need their lovies. Whether it’s a security blanket, favorite soft toy, or a mix of both, these items are so important for comforting little ones. We’ve rounded up a few of the best lovies that for babies of various ages.
1. Under the Nile Bunny Blanket Friend
Since your child might spend years rubbing his little face on his lovey and even chewing on it, this 100% certified organic Egyptian cotton one is a good bet — once your baby’s at least six months old.
2. Aden + Anais Issi Muslin Security Blanket
The single-layer, open-weave design of these 100% natural cotton muslin security blankets make them a great choice for babies under six months, and they come in a variety of sweet patterns and colors.
3. Angel Dear Blankie
These deliciously soft blankies come in a veritable zoo of options — brown monkey, blue hippo, green frog and more. Like all lovey-stuffed animal combos, this one is best for babies over six months old.
4. Little Giraffe Chenille Travel Blanky
These lovies are soft, fluffy chenille edged in satin, a fabric whose texture some babies find extra soothing. The downside to the trim is that it doesn’t hold up so well over time, so best to buy multiples for back up.
5. Swaddle Designs Organic Cotton Baby Lovie
The organic cotton SwaddleDesigns lovies are a perfect size (somewhere around 12×12 to 16×16 works well for both portability and safety — this one is 14×14) and we love the modern print!
6. The DIY Option: Organic Bamboo Velour
If you don’t see a lovey that suits you, or you’re feeling up for an easy craft project, consider making your own — that way you can choose the size and fabric.
7. Another DIY Option: Cut a Swaddling Blanket Down to Size
Take a set of cotton muslin swaddling blankets, cut multiple squares to the size you wish and hem the edges to prevent fraying. Breathable and lightweight, these are a great option for young babies.
