Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

You went through all the trouble of having a baby -- the screwing, the swelling, the pushing, the cooing, the gawking, the beginning tinges of regret -- and now what are you going to do? Cover the damned thing up, of course! With a Secure2Me baby blanket.

Designed by Dallas mom Amy Long, the Secure2Me blanket claims to differ from other blankets in that it has little clippy things on the corners that enable baby transporters to clip the edges of the blankie to a wheelbarrow, saddle, stroller or whatever it is you're pushing Junior around in. Ranging in price from $29 to $42, the blankets come in a remarkable array of non-bunny/bear/kitty/puppy prints that look like they were actually designed by adults, who are the ones looking at the things most of the time anyway. Way to go, Amy!

Although, by my calculations, you can get a fleece and some binder clips for under $20. But you really can't beat this deal: a good ol' box of Trojans for $6.99. --Andrea Grimes

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
