The ancient art of swaddling just got a delicious, modern twist. A new product called the Tortilla Baby swaddle blanket (and matching cap) will keep your baby warm and comfy while also making him look like a human burrito.

The 40-inch round blanket is made from 50% cotton and 50% polyester and seriously, it looks exactly like a giant flour tortilla. The matching hat — sized for infants up to three months old — looks like the tasty folded knot that seals in a burrito’s deliciousness.¬†Oh, and if you’ve never swaddled a baby (or rolled a burrito), fear not: the set comes equipped with detailed instructions.

The tortilla blanket is the first product launched by Bon Vivant Baby, a California-based company that creates food-inspired fashion for infants. Founder¬†Katharine Harlan Owens tells TIME that the inspiration came after she repeatedly heard friends at baby showers referring to the “burrito” effect. That is, any average swaddle blanket makes a baby look like the tasty Mexican cuisine.¬†Parents magazine even suggests a swaddling method called the Burrito Roll. So, Owens thought, why not get literal with it?

After developing the idea for about a year, Owens found a Los Angeles manufacturer to produce and package it, and in July, Tortilla Baby became official. “It’s just a cute fun way to make your baby look edible,” she says.

The tortilla blanket is available online for $48. Stay tuned for a sushi blanket, egg roll blanket and crepe blanket, all launching in January.
