Best baby blankets online: here’s where to find them!

One of the essential purchases for the baby’s layette are the blankets for newborns to put on the crib, pram or cot.

Keeping the little ones warm in a small, soft and welcoming “nest” is certainly one of the most important things. In fact, blankets give the little one such a feeling of security that over time a close bond develops between the child and his blanket.

What kind of fabric for the cover?

There are many things to consider before buying a cover. However, the most important are not related to design, style or colours, but to the comfort and quality of the fabrics.

The most used fabrics for covers are cotton, wool and fleece.
The covers indicated with 100% cotton , the covers in pure cotton in natural dyes, the flannel covers, the muslin covers, the covers in pure cotton chenille (not to be confused with the synthetic one) are made of natural cotton, all particularly suitable  for the children.

Wool, on the other hand, is a natural fiber of animal origin that is certainly  soft and warm  and thanks to its ability to retain a greater amount of air it is  very insulating. However, it must be said that a wool blanket needs more attention than a cotton one, especially for washing.

Fleece, microfibre, minky covers are not made of natural but synthetic fabric. However, they are covers particularly appreciated for their numerous qualities: they are soft, velvety, pleasant to the touch, insulating, easy to wash .

What baby blankets?

When buying a blanket for a baby, the first concern must always be safety. In fact, the little one must not only be warm, but also safe.
In fact, small children, with their skin so delicate, need the  utmost delicacy and care, therefore blankets with light, soft and breathable fabrics that guarantee peaceful sleep are preferable .
Enveloping sleeping bags or wearable blankets, warm cotton blankets, better if stratified, blankets in organic and bio material are recommended, especially at the beginning.
Better to avoid quilts that are too heavy and perforated covers where little hands can get caught for the moment.

What blankets for older children?

As babies begin to move more, heavier or more elaborate blankets can be used. Handmade blankets , such as quilted, knit or crocheted ones, can be introduced at 3-4 months. However, it is better to avoid parts that could come off accidentally such as ribbons, buttons or other ornaments.

To be sure of choosing the right blanket, I suggest you read the advice I wrote here some time ago:
