Evonna. Blanket. June 09th , 2017.
Usually made of a lightweight and eco-friendly material such as organic cotton, fleece, flannel, muslin and bamboo, receiving blankets have either a square or rectangular shape and are mostly used in hospitals. Being quite thin, they can also be layered with other kinds of blanket. Needless to say, these all-purpose blankets are a staple in a newborn`s world.
Swaddling blankets are designed to wrap babies tightly, making them feel like they are still in mother`s tummy. These blankets are quite similar to security blankets in the terms of functionality, with the only difference that they come with Velcro fasteners that help you swaddle your newborn quickly and easily.
There are a wide range of blankets on the market today. The most common ones are wool, cotton, poly cotton blend and fleece. There are also a number of luxury blankets available and they are silk, cashmere and chenille. We learned quite a lot about wool blankets in my last article. Now I will explain the composition of other blankets available in the marketplace today and help you in your search for a blanket or blankets that will satisfy all your bedroom needs.
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.
Sometimes also called blankeys or loveys, security blankets are used by a baby until he grows into a toddler. For the reasons, they must be durable so that your child could enjoy his toddler age to the fullest. However, your little one may also get attached to any other type of blanket and can treat it as a security blanket.
