Sometimes picking things for baby to wear, play, and use are really tricky because there are so many aspects you need to consider before you make your purchase. You will be looking from the item to your baby to see whether it’s the best choice but all in all, many parents go wrong with these tricky items. This is why we came up with some helpful tips on how to choose the best blanket for your little one. Sometimes, this one right choice can run a long way and your little baby would not want to leave this blanket even for a second.
Know the material
Since your baby’s skin is very sensitive, the materials of their clothes, shoes and other wearable should be taken into consider. Their immune systems are not so developed to fight these problems so it’s very essential that you know the materials that don’t harm your baby’s skin. When it comes to choosing blankets the same applies. Blankets that are unnatural can cause nasty rashes on their skin. Also, the incorrect material can overheat because of not letting air and moisture out. Since organic is all natural and you can assure it to be safe for your baby, opt for organic baby blankets in the store. They can make a good gift as well.
Is it securing enough?
Some blankets are made out of heavy layers. These layers can be quite harmful for your baby. Also blankets with a lot of pieces of cloth, ribbon, and other items hanging can pose as a hazard to little ones. If you are selecting a crocheted or knitted blanket, make sure that it’s all tightly knit and there aren’t any holes that can cause danger or which your baby can get his arms in them.
The correct blanket size
There are so many baby blanket sizes in the toddler shops but how are you going to make sure that this is the correct choice? Remember that the sizes vary from your baby and also the type of blankets you want to buy.
For a newborn if you are using a receiving blanket then, it should be lightweight, small and the size normally varies from 18-36 inches square. If you are purchasing a crib blanket, they come in rectangular shapes and in the 40-60 inch range. Multiuse blankets are good for little ones to play and crawl. They come in 30-40 inches sizes.
There are lots of patterns
At last here come the different patterns you want to buy for your baby. This might vary from thousands of prints, themes, colors and other styles as well. So, you can make a good choice by doing a small research or even checking them online to buy.
