There are a lot of options when it comes to the perfect baby blanket for your child. As both a mother and owner of a specialty baby boutique I have become quite the “expert” on the topic. Here are my top four favorites…and here’s why…
1. Aden & Anais This brand deserves all the hype it receives. The simple patterns on super soft muslin make for the perfect swaddle. The lightweight muslin also permits air to circulate around the baby’s body, while still providing comfort and warmth without the worry that the baby may overheat in moderate weather. Cotton muslin is also a workhorse fabric. The wrap is woven from a natural fiber that stands up to repeated washings and only becoming softer — and better — with age.
2. Little Giraffe This brand touts itself as luxurious, and I would most definitely agree. One snuggle with one of these blankets and you will be hooked and so will your little one. My favorite in the collection is the Luxe blanket.
3. Swaddle Designs These swaddle blankets come in the MOST adorable patterns, made of cotton flannel. The perfect square for easy swaddling they even come with simple swaddle instructions.
4. Margery Ellen If you don’t have the time or the skill to knit your baby a home made blanket, then look no further than Margery Ellen. Her hand knit blankets in perfect color combos are soft and sweet. These fly off the shelves and make a wonderful baby gift.
