5 Adorable Latino-themed gifts for any baby
Just in time for the holidays, Bon Vivant Baby has introduced the Tortilla Baby Swaddle Blanket, and I kind of wish I was pregnant just so I could have a reason to buy one. The term "baby burrito" has been used for years in reference to those adorable little newborns swaddled up nice and cozy in their blankies, but this version takes that concept to a whole other level. It's actually round and looks just like a giant tortilla! It even comes with a little hat with a knot on the end that is reminiscent of how a burrito gets wrapped. How cute is it!?

And if you think this blanket is all looks and no substance, or that a round swaddling blanket won't work, rest assured that it functions just fine. Though this new product only has a handful of reviews on the maker's Website, every single one of them is five-star.
"Swaddling imitates the snug packaging inside the womb and is the cornerstone of calming - it decreases startling and increases sleep," said Dr. Harvery Karp, author of Happiest Baby on the Block.
So really, you actually need this blanket. Like, yesterday. And not just this blankie, check out the slideshow below for more Latino-themed baby items that we loved. They're perfect for any baby on your list!

And if your baby is anything like mine, he'll be in a swaddle for a while--you just can't beat the sleep-inducing effects of a nice snug wrap. Just ask pretty much any of the so-called sleep experts.
