There’s so much to do when it comes to welcoming a new baby into the world, especially when it comes to documenting how fast they grow! In addition to just taking tons of photos, a sweet way to mark all those moments is with baby milestone blankets. Basically, they are pre-made blankets with a pretty design and numbers 1-12 to mark days, weeks and years. It makes those monthly photos all the more special, and we’ve rounded up some gorgeous options from Etsy.
