When my baby girl was born last year, my mom knitted a pink cashmere jumpsuit for her. The jumpsuit is so gorgeous and cozy and light-weighted. And the most important thing is, it’s very easy to put on and to change the diaper. I just layered with a snap-up sleep&play, and top with a snug car seat poncho then she’s good to go. Even in the coldest weather in Michigan, the cashmere jumpsuit can still keep my baby warm in the car. That really quick and convenience especially when you have 2 or more kids at home.


My mom also designed the Aran Baby Car Seat Poncho for my boy. Link is here.
