BABY HAMPERS IN SYDNEY: TYPES OF BABY BLANKETS
Baby blankets come in different varieties of colours, styles, designs, and materials. In addition, there are also different types of baby blankets available for you to choose from. Here are some of the most common types of baby blankets and personalised baby blankets that are gifted to newborns.
Receiving blankets are one of the most common and popular types of baby blankets. These blankets are lightweight and measures about one square yard and can serve a variety of purposes. For one, they can be used whenever the baby is laid down to sleep or on the couch, or to protect the baby from outside elements like wind and cold.
Swaddling blankets are just as popular when it comes to baby blankets. In general, they are used to swaddle babies and calming them down when they cry. Unlike receiving blankets which are usually square, swaddling blankets can come in different shapes and sizes – from square and flat to cut to wrap and others. Some swaddling blankets are especially designed with fasteners to keep the blankets from opening up. This is especially helpful when parents need to open the lower part of the blanket to change the baby’s diaper without the need to open the whole blanket.
Security blankets are those that babies’ become attach to while they grow up – sort of like their ‘favourite’ blanket. Although any type of baby blanket can become a security blanket, many parents prefer to give their babies security blankets with cute designs or stuffed animals attached to it. Sometimes, they also opt for personalised baby blankets. When choosing a security blanket, make sure that it is made of high quality materials and excellent craftsmanship since this blanket will be used well into the baby’s toddler years.
Sleep sacks may be considered more of a sleeping bag rather than a personalised baby blanket, but it does serve the purpose of a good baby blanket as well. A sleep sack is a great alternative to baby blankets in the sense that they don’t fall off as the baby moves while asleep. They do perform the same purpose of keeping the baby warm, although unlike receiving blankets, you can’t use a sleep sack to wipe baby’s drools and vomits. Do choose sleep sacks that allows for maximum movements and doesn’t restrict baby’s movements.
Personalised baby blankets are one of the best gifts that you can give for a baby shower. They are both practical and pretty, and if made with quality materials, they can last for a long time.
