Soft, light blanket is a perfect cover for a baby. It will surely be useful in many situations – not only during sleep but also in the stroller or when traveling in a car seat. Yet, the question remains: how to choose a perfect, 100% safe blanket for a baby?
A blanket is a basic element of every layette for a baby and its purchase should be a well-researched decision. Aesthetics are crucial, but not the most important. Basic selection criteria should be the material the blanket is made of, and then its size.
Delicate and nice to the touch fabric
A baby blanket should be made of high-quality materials that are safe for the sensitive skin of your baby. The best solution is extremely soft to the touch Minky fleece as well as delicate, hypoallergenic and certified cotton. These two materials are a perfect combination. The blanket filling should be hypoallergenic, ensuring warmth and breathability. A warm blanket made on the one side of Minky fleece and on the other side of 100% cotton can be easily used as a duvet.
A baby’s blanket must be as comfortable as possible and safe, thus the high-quality of materials is important. A baby has a very sensitive skin that is prone to many irritations. We should avoid materials that can cause allergy and do not ensure the necessary level of breathability, causing the baby to wake up sweated during the night. We also need to remember that after repeated washes, the blanket should not lose its softness and original shape.
Small size of the blanket
Another important factor that must be considered when looking for a blanket is its size. The blanket cannot be too heavy nor too big. A baby’s blanket sized 65×75 will be universal as it can be used not only in bed. Its small size will make it comfortable to use in the stroller, crib or carrier as it does not take much space. It will be an indispensable element from the very first days of your baby, wrapping it delicately and allowing free movement of hands and feet. If we want to use the blanket longer, we should choose one sized 75×100. It can help to tightly wrap a baby in its bed and later we can use it in a stroller.
