My son was almost an ounce shy of 9 lbs when he was born, and those tiny photography props don't always fit newborns. So I came up with this neat idea to have an adjustable cocoon. Not only can it be used as a cocoon you can lay it down and use it as a blanket as well.

Here is a You Tube video of the actual photography prop.
