A nice baby blanket is a must. It's a good thing to take into hospital with you, to bring baby home all wrapped up in. It can be transferred from car seat, to moses basket, to pram, cot, etc. Very practical. My youngest (nearly 3) still loves to snuggle up with hers on the sofa. Here's my favourite baby blanket. I recently bought it for my sister's baby boy. It is totally unisex and popular for girls and boys: http://www.mamasandpapas.com/product-gingerbread-striped-knitted-blanket/786009400/type-i/ Congratulations on impending auntyhood!
