I purchased a couple of these blankets for my newborn, and I use it ALL the time. We live in Hawaii and daily sun exposure is pretty much unavoidable. I used it for stroller rides, nursing cover, and a wrap over my carrier to keep my baby covered. It's stretchy so you can tie it, or even use it as a swaddle blanket. Now it's on my list for friends living out here as baby gifts! LOVE THEM!!!
