I'm a new dad and am speaking as a new dad... I was already anxious before the baby was born. My fear was about holding my precious newborn! The BabyRoo blanket was the perfect gift that we have just received and it resolved my worries. It was the best gift for our baby boy! My wife especially loves it when she breast feeds the baby because it is cozy and easy to manage I strongly recommend this blanket for new born babies as a convenient and safe blanket.
