You wish you had the energy, patience and creative talent to produce daily photos of your baby napping in whimsical dream set-ups. In reality, you’d be happy to have beautiful monthly snaps of your baby to share on Instagram and treasure for eternity. Lulujo just launched a must-have kit for amazing first year photos that takes milestone stickers one step further by adding a backdrop blanket. Keep reading to find out why it’s a winner.

Why You Need This

While milestone sticker and cards sets are great, they don’t necessarily produce fool proof photos. You still need to style the shot, whether you’re propping your baby up on a chair or using your own blanket. You’ll quickly realize if you don’t have a clean backdrop, your photos aren’t going to pop the way the ones you’re always pinning do.

Lulujo’s blanket and card sets make creating aesthetically amazing pics pretty easy. All you need to do is dress your babe in a cute outfit (or make it easy and stick to a patterned diaper), and get the whole blanket in the frame.

What You’ll Get

Lulujo has created three gorgeous designs to choose from, each featuring a muslin blanket that acts as your instant photo backdrop — the girly “Isn’t She Lovely,” the gender neutral black and white “Loved Beyond Measure,” and the more masculine “I Will Move Mountains.” Each set also includes 14 coordinating milestone cards that state Baby’s age from day 1 to year 1.

Beyond the First Year

The bonus? Long beyond the first year, your baby can use and cherish this special blanket. Whether it’s used for cuddling, playing on, swaddling or hung on the nursery wall as an art piece, this is one photo prop you won’t toss after Baby turns one.

Baby’s First Year Blanket & Cards Set available for pre-order at, $19.99 (shipping mid-Nov).
