I placed a blanket in the back of the basket to protect his back and to make it cozy. And also out of sight of the camera.
The blanket used for the backdrop was bought at Kirklands. The basket was bought at Hobby Lobby and the sheepskin at IKEA. What you can't see is that I also had a space heater nearby. When you take the clothes off the babies you want them to stay warm. They will be a lot happier if they are warm!
