Created by Josh Rutt, a New York-based teacher, composer and performer, Baby Blanket Music was developed under the guidance of a wide range of doctors, teachers and child development specialists.

As a result, Rutt set out to create a distinctive line of music designed to appeal to babies, parents and grandparents alike.
