Babies love to touch, When my kids were little, each had a different “lovey” that traveled everywhere, brought smiles and soothed hurts (both real and imagined). With a handmade lovable softie, you can make backups for emergencies – like washing. It’s kind of sad to see your kid sitting on the floor of the laundry room watching the best bunny in the whole wide world endure the spin cycle. Here are some of our fave plush loveys to love!
How huggable is this Comforting Bunny Lovey? The instructions from All Free Crochet are easy to follow. You can line the ears with satin or plush (or one of each!) The embroidered facial features are baby-safe.[spacer height=”20px”]
A Lovey Tag Blanket like this one from The Ribbon Retreat folds up for on-the-go, launders easily and give you lots of options for tactile stimulation. Provide a variety of textured tags, and your little is sure to find a favorite.
