The $520 karma-enhancing cashmere baby blanket? Om my God!

While her mummy is at yoga and the nanny is on a nearby park bench tweeting, this little angel is dreaming of world peace, sprawled on a spread of Conscious Blankees. This latest can’t-spoil-your-kids-enough nursery item comes from Conscious Cloth, a fashion line for upscale down-doggers. Made of not-exactly-spit-up-friendly cashmere with a silk border, the Blankee comes in 14 color combinations and three sizes, starting at $320 for a 16-inch square and $520 for just over 2 by 3 feet.

At the risk of messing up my own karma, I’m skeptical that, as Conscious Cloth’s website proclaims, the product’s hand-sewn ‘sacred mantra . . . raises the frequency and vibration of the blanket . . . surrounding your loved one with the vibration of love, beauty, protection and healing.’ Wouldn’t a long, warm hug and a donation to a Tibetan orphanage set a better example?
