Help! I don't want a fussy one, or a monogrammed one, I just want a beautiful traditional one from a shop or company I know of - seen loads on the internet but I don't know any of the suppliers and time is running out so I don't want to trust a company I don't know in case I get taken for a ride. Please help - am desperate and it's an important part of her baptism to me.

I bought a really light weight fringed white blanket for my dd baptism it had a teddy in one corner but was folded over and you couldnt see it. I did want to use the original one I had for my other children but with a 17 yr gap from it being used it had yellowed against the dress. It doesnt have to be fancy as your priest will tell you just a white garment

John Lewis! Last time I went in, I couldn't find them. I bought her dress there though. Maybe I'll pop back in this week. Actually, I'll ring them. They're always so helpful.

Any other takers on places I can buy them from?
