 There's a new way to swaddle a baby and it's with your favorite soft bread. While the product is generally called a burrito or tortilla blanket, the image seems interchangeable with a lafa, a Middle Eastern flat bread. 

Some companies make a product with a matching hat, which is available for purchase on Amazon for around USD $12 for the set. The blanket is suitable for babies between zero and three months old. 


"From their sweet rosy cheeks to their delectable little toes, you know your baby looks good enough to eat, and now he or she can dress the part," the Amazon product page wrote. 


A company called The Burrito Blanket sells the product for adults as well. 


The adult Burrito Blanket comes in one size of 72 inches, made of 100% polyester.  The soft fabric blanket generally costs USD $79.95, but for a short time will be USD $29.95.
