We got a lovie for KayK while at the beach when I was 8 months pregnant. After she was born, we put it in her bed every night and now she LOVES it.
She loves it so much, we bought a back-up. We had a hard time taking it away long enough to wash.
I didn't realize HOW dirty it was until the new one arrived.
This is after the wash - original one still on the left but lookin MUCH better! :)
