I understand all of the arguments for protecting babies, but when I see these babies covered up in shopping areas, restaurants, theaters, and in cars, I can't help but wonder what it does to the development of these tiny brains. they are deprived of the sensory experiences all around them. Perhaps staying home with a vulnerable child and letting them explore in a safe place is the way to go. The ones made of gauze or netting to protect from insects are great and don't block the world. Just want people to think carefully about these products or just tossing a blanket or cloth over a child's head.

HA! I love the name of this project. Usually they're used to keep baby shielded from the cold, but shielded from people is perfect, too.

This would be cute even in a gauzy material or seersucker for hot summer days with some bias trim around the edges!

really thanks for sharing.grade'''''

I made one for a friend that has a Preemie baby and complained about little children at the doctors office wanting to touch the baby, she didn't want to be rude but preemies have lower resistance to germs. She absolutely loved the cover up. So I made one for my grandson who is due in October.

Brilliant! I truly wish I'd had this when my children were born. People thought nothing of touching my babies, picking up a blanket to look at them, etc. Now my daughter is having a daughter and I'm going to make a couple of these in sheer batiste or other light-weight material.

I made one of these for my fourth child and I love it. She was born in December so this was nice when it was windy or raining because it sheltered her whithout have to jugle to hold a blanket over the carrier.

I can't get over that there are people who would actually cover their child so as to prevent the world from seeing them. I've always taught my children not to touch other babies; that they can just admire them. I have five beautiful children, and grandchildren; who I never once thought of covering to deter people from admiring them. Everyone is different.

This was sooo easy to make and very cute too! The hardest part of making this cover was running back and forth to the store to use their baby carrier for a pattern! As a senior with like friends without babies I was really in a pickle for a guide to use for this pattern. But I sure had fun making this! Thanks Allison. Also enjoyed your blogspot. Thanks for sharing.

I love this pattern! It is the cutest cover that I have found, I can't wait to make it for my baby and friends!

I made one of these for my friend who had a premiee. I made it out of a cute dog material-it also has little paw prints all over it (Hancocks). I put some iron-on letters in the front that said "Paws off." She loved it and said people think its funny AND they dont look under it! -Anna

I wouldn't dream of touching anyone's child, but I do love to see their wee, smiling faces. It makes me sad to think that because we get old and our children are grown up, we cannot enjoy the beauty of someone's child without touching said child.
