Meet our new Babies Gotta Have It featured sponsor…Bonchos Baby Blankets! Read on to find out why Kristin and MD are bonkers for them. And stick around to enter to win your very own Boncho just in time for the cool weather months!
Have you ever tried to strap your child into his car seat in the middle of winter only to have his bulky coat prevent you from tightening the straps as much as you should? Or, has your child arrived at Grandma’s with a zipper imprint on his face? Or, have you placed a blanket over him only to spend the entire car ride checking to be sure it hasn’t somehow slipped and suddenly covered his face…or even better, your beautiful hand-crocheted baby blanket falls out when you open the car door and lands right in a muddy puddle? Or, maybe you’re like me and you skip the jacket altogether only to struggle your child into it once you have arrived at your destination.
Bonchos is here to offer a solution to your difficulties! Bonchos are poncho-shaped blankets (thus the name) that can be securely placed over stroller harnesses, car seat straps, or front carriers to keep your child warm. The Boncho is designed with head and arm openings so it will not get bunched up around your child’s face, fall onto the ground, or slide off of him.
Custom and reversible fabrics, and monogramming are all available options to create a unique ensemble for your baby! Or, you can order a coordinating hat or scarf for baby (or older siblings)! The soft fleecy fabrics and satin backing are comfortable and warm. We were given the Luxury Collection Boncho in the Cuddy Puppy fabric and it’s so ultra soft that MD loves it just as much as a blankie for napping as I love it for a car seat and stroller blanket!
I only wish I had been given a Boncho when I was still carrying MD in the Baby Bjorn! It would be perfect for that…and I spent a ton of time tucking blankets into the sides and front to keep his feet and legs warm, only to have them fall out within minutes. These days, we have been using our Boncho Blanket in the stroller for our daily walk as well as watching from the sidelines while MD’s older brother plays soccer. Soccer practices are in the late evening and become very chilly (and buggy too–the Boncho also keeps the bugs off MD), but MD is toasty warm in his Boncho. I have had a ton of questions from other parents interested in our Boncho already.
If you are looking for a unique baby gift, be sure to put a Bonchos Baby Blanket on your list. With all of the great fabrics and patterns, and the wonderful versatility of this unique fleece baby blanket, you will be sure to find the right one for your little one.
And thanks to Deb at Bonchos, one lucky Babies Gotta Have It winner will receive the Bonchos Baby Blanket of her choice! Choose your favorite Boncho from any of the collections: The Classic Collection, The Essential Collection or The Luxury Collection. Want to enter? Read on!

Giveaway begins Tuesday October 2nd and ends on Tuesday October 23rd at 11:59 Eastern Standard Time. Very soon after, Random.org will select the winner and I’ll email them immediately. After my daughter called Larry the Cable guy the last time she did a drawing, we have decided to take a little vacation from her choosing the winner. Random.org is in no way as cute and unpredictable as my daughter, but it is much more efficient and does not use any pieces of paper, even recycled ones. I am sure you will understand. Thanks for entering!
