Cuddling and snuggling your newborn might be your new favourite pastime, but you’ll eventually have to free your hands at some point.
And what better way to get this done, than by having your precious infant wrapped up in a cozy, warm and safe blanket or wrap made out of 100% Organic Cotton.
Why Your Baby Needs A Wrap
A baby wrap is basically a piece of long fabric like a blanket that is used to completely wrap around your baby in a secure fashion. Wraps can typically be used with newborns up until your child is 24 months old, although parents get the most use out of them in the first several months.
Baby wraps help maintain your little one’s body temperature and also keeps them calm & comfortable.
Why Your Baby Needs A Holding Sheet
It’s a bit of an understatement to say that baby blankets are adorable. But in addition to being a cute memento of a moment in time in baby’s life, they’re also incredibly functional.
In addition to keeping little ones warm and cozy, you can use baby blankets for swaddling and tummy time, and even repurpose them as throw blankets after your children outgrow them.
But with so many styles and materials to choose from, the options can feel limitless. We’re highlighting how to pick the perfect baby blanket for your tiny tot.
How Do I Choose The Right Baby Wrap / Blanket?
When deciding on the perfect baby wrap, you’ll want to consider:
- The fabric. How stretchy, breathable, or bulky is the fabric? How long is it? Is it weighted?
- The cost. Does it fit within your price range?
- The extras. Is it eco-friendly? Does the wrap include any extra features, like hidden pockets, head wrap or soft cushioning?
- The material. Is it multilayered cotton stuffing (organic cotton) which is safe on your baby’s skin?
