Newborn Baby Girl Gift Soft Cotton Baby Blanket for Stroller, Cuddling Knit, Unique Design Great Meanings by Wee Dreamers
WEE DREAMERS "MY FLOWER OF LIFE" Baby Blanket This eye-catching, auspicious design "My Flower of Life" was originally created by Laura Luckarty for her upcoming picture book "You Are the Best for Me". Did you know that doves are the only bird to produce a unique kind of milk to feed their offspring by ceasing their foraging for food just before their babies are born? This temporary starvation insures a pure formulation of milk for them. This alone is an amazing fact of mothers' self-sacrifice and devotion in doves. In this design, the doves symbolize generational maternal love (mother's, grandmother's, great grandmothers ...). In Christianity, doves also depict the Holy Spirit and angels that bring peace and love, and protect. The flower of life (the perfectly symmetric, round flowery shape in the center), predominantly found in old Celtic heritages, is an ancient sacred symbol that is believed to depict time, space and life (growth). For this design, it represents growth, expansion and continuation of life like our baby girls. Its colors ... the baby pink is indubitably the color of our little daughters, and the turquoise blue represents sky, the ocean, ... in more broader sense - a space. It's perfect a CHRISTENING and HOMECOMING blanket. Also use in strollers in daily outings, in nursery or for special occasions, and as a carry-on travel blanket. Lightly layer over in the wind or chilly day without sweating your baby. * Cotton fiber is natural, and therefore, unlike chemically treated synthetic fibers, it is non-allergenic and 100% biodegradable * Cotton is naturally anti-bacterial as well, which minimizes the need for frequent washing. Wash in cold water using gentle detergent in delicate setting (or use laundry mesh bag). Air dry is recommended.
