I have few really small children in my family at the moment so I generally crochet for children on commission, however, they are a very popular category of crochet items to make.
Dinomite Dinosaur – Green Fox Farm Designs
Paige’s burp cloth – Sunflower Cottage Crochet
If you have ever spent any amount of time with a baby then you know that an unlimited supply of burp cloths is essential! Paige’s burp cloth is a super fun, practical and popular crochet item to make that you can grab on Ravelry and Etsy
Ava Grace – baby blanket – Ambassador Crochet

What better way to start than with your own classically beautiful baby blanket. The Ava Grace Baby Blanket is a classic make with an intricate edge that you can find on Ravely and Etsy
