Whenever you go out shopping for baby blankets you will soon discover that there are essentially 3 different types of baby blankets. These include fleece, cashmere and knit. Each of these different types of blankets has its own unique texture which in turn gives it its own unique feel. For this reason, it is important to have some information about each of these different types of baby blankets.
To begin with you should know that a fleece blanket will provide your baby with the exact amount of warmth that he needs. This means that he will not become too hot or too cold and thus not grow fussy for either of these reasons. You should also know that these blankets are very easy to wash. They actually only need to be washed once a month. If you have older kids, you may also want to look into weighted blankets. We recommend Namaste Blanket’s weighted blanket for kids.
The next type of baby blankets that you should know about are cashmere blankets. Surprisingly, even though cashmere blankets are light weight, they are still very warm and very soft. For this reason, they can be easily used in both your baby’s bed and your baby’s stroller too. However, if you want to keep these blankets soft, then you are going to need to wash them by hand. You will also notice that these types of blankets are also a bit more expensive in price but once you stop to consider just how durable and comfortable they are, you will see that these blankets really are worth the added cost.
The final type of baby blankets are knit baby blankets. You will find that most knit blankets are actually handmade by someone who wants to show you just how much they really care about both you and your baby. Another one of the great things about knit baby blankets is that they can be made in any color so as to fit the décor that you choose to use in your baby’s nursery.
Knowing the difference between these 3 types of baby blankets will help you to make a better, more informed decision about which type of blanket is going to be best for your baby. Of course, each parent will reach their own decision and choose something different that they think will work best for them and their baby. This is fine though since there really is no such thing as the wrong type of baby blanket, which is why there is something available for everyone.
