Baby blankets are one of the most essential items you need to have once you welcome your newborn. Babies cannot regulate their temperature well by themselves, so it is essential that you keep them warm during cold nights, but not too warm that they feel stuffy. Besure to pick the right baby blankets that are suitable for your climate and kind to your baby’s skin.
As a general rule of thumb, it may be best to leave baby blankets for when your baby turns 12 to 18 months old. This is a form of safety, to ensure that your baby sleeps comfortably and safely in the crib at night, without any risks. If you are worried about your baby getting cold, make sure you put on a comfortable sleep suit for your baby.
Baby blankets need to be washed in order to avoid infections, especially since babies have under-developed immune systems. Remember to regularly wash your baby blankets, and keep a rotation. A good number to keep for this rotation is between 10 to 12 baby blankets.
Firstly, choose a baby blanket that is soft and kind to your baby’s skin - preferably one with a cotton underlayer. Refrain from buying blankets that have too much fur on them, as these can come off and have risks of causing choking episodes. When choosing a baby blanket in Singapore, make sure that they aren’t too heavy, and made of breathable material, to prevent overheating your baby.
