Evonna. Blanket. June 05th , 2017.
A blanket is undoubtedly a newborn`s best friend. Even, many babies don`t get ready to sleep without it. Therefore, buying an appropriate blanket for your little one becomes obligatory for you. With several types of baby blankets available in the market today, deciding which one is perfectly suitable for your newborn is really a daunting task. However, if you already know what different types of baby blankets are, it becomes quite easy for you to buy a perfect one for your infant.
Unlike receiving blankets, swaddling blankets are often made of muslin, larger in size and have a square shape. Not only they help your little one stay calm and relaxed but also they prevent him from scratching face with his little nails. Some varieties of swaddling blankets even allow you to change diapers without fully un-wrapping the baby.
Chenille blankets are made from rayon, cotton, acrylic and a number of other materials. Chenille refers to the way the fabric is woven. Small lengths of filament are bound into two or more pieces of strong yarn. The short pieces give the chenille a soft and luxurious pile. It is recommended that you have this blanket professionally cleaned. If hand or machine washed and want to machine dry, use low heat or lay flat to prevent stretching because it is a heavy material.
Sheets or blankets with high thread count can seem impressive, but don`t be lured into buying these just for that factor. Touching and feeling the blanket is the best way to judge if the softness is just right for you. All the other numbers don`t matter, except for the measurements, of course.
The most important aspect to factor in: what will you use the blanket for? Are you looking for a waterproof picnic blanket, a blanket for your dog or are you going out camping and hiking for a long period of time? Some waterproof blankets are specifically made to cover yourself. Which means they will have soft outer layers on both sides while other blankets are made for activities such as a picnic, for people to sit on. Those blankets will have a waterproof layer on the bottom side. Waterproof blankets made for camping will often be heavier as they require more durable and warmer materials, such as fleece or down.
