When shopping for bedding for your baby, you need to take the time to make the right decision because it's something your child will have to live with every night. To make the decision easier, keep the following tips in mind.
Always put safety first. No matter what bedding or blanket you choose, it's important to make sure it doesn't pose a safety hazard. It should not have debris (such as tassels or beads) or loose threads that could come off the blanket, as it could be a choking hazard for children if they tried to swallow it.
Choose the right baby blanket fabric for your climate. It's even more important to assess your environment before deciding on a material. Whether you live in a hot or cold climate will determine whether you need a fabric that provides better insulation or temperature regulation.
Determine the proper size. Perhaps the most important thing besides the fabric is the size of the bedding or blanket. Parents need to choose a blanket that is large enough to keep their infant warm and comfortable, but not so large that they are overwhelmed, and the standard size of available baby blankets tends to be 45 inches by 45 inches to 60 inches.
