Buying a blanket for your baby needs many things to be taken care of. The
most important concern in it is the safety of your baby. Parents should
not use those blankets which are very aesthetics at least in case of a one
year old or younger baby. However they can find the safe blankets for their
babies in a aesthetically pleasing patterns and designs also available in
the market as well as on the web.
A baby can overheat faster or quickly than any other person so the use
of light natural and fiber blankets is advisable. Receiving baby blankets
are good choice for the safety of baby. Cotton receiving blankets are
more preferable. They are also available in colorful patterns, textures
and designs which can also please your baby. Such blankets can often be
found matching with the nursery themes or bedding patterns.
Parents should avoid blankets in quilt that may come along with the crib.
Such quilts are the major cause of the sudden infant death syndrome. They
may also cause suffocation to the baby. Parents should take care of this
point when buying the baby blankets.
One should try to avoid blankets with excess of trim, buttons, fringe
or any such kind of things over the blanket as much as possible, preferably
negligible. As there are many chances of such things being pulled out
and swallowed by your baby. A crib bumper is safe enough if it is plain.
Parents should also see that in case of cotton flannel baby blankets
they should washed properly and daily at least three times. It is also
advisable to keep a blanket in spare as in any of such cases. Also blankets
generally collect a lot of lint during its early use. Repeatedly washing
blankets can remove such annoying tints. So that it does not irritate
Also some acrylic baby blankets get fuzzier with their repeated usage,
so it is not a best choice to use. Blankets made by man made fibers are
quiet warmer. This can not provide proper ventilation to baby in night
or when they are sleeping in day.
Parents should also see that the blankets made of natural or man made
fibers should be tight enough so that the baby's hand does not get stuck
in the weave. Consider the use of crocheted baby blanket in day time only.
These are suitably decorative, but again they can trap baby's hand or
feet in the holes of the blanket.
These are some of the points to be kept in mind by the parents or guardians
before buying or using baby blankets.
