Wrap your bundle of joy in warm baby blankets
From the time your baby enters the world, he or she will need a cozy baby blanket to keep out the chill. Wrap tiny little bodies in soft baby blankets to keep them snuggled tight all night long. Made from the gentlest fabrics, our collection of swaddling blankets and crib blankets won't chafe against baby's sensitive skin. Choose from your favorite motif, such as monkeys or ladybugs, for your little guy or gal's nursery.
Parents swaddle their newborns because the tried-and-true maneuver keeps baby hugged in comfort and warmth by soft fabric wings. Be sure to pick up a set of machine-washable swaddling blankets for your wee one's first weeks. Many designs come equipped with a leg pouch that can pop open for easy diaper changes. Self-fastening tabs make folding the swaddle a snap in just a few quick steps. When properly swaddled, a baby will sleep better and longer in the womb-like environment.
Plush blankets can be purchased as part of a baby bedding set or bought separately as an additional layer of comfort in the crib. Fleece throws and flannel blankets keep the chill out on cool evenings and can easily be taken along in the stroller when your baby needs to nap on the go. Spread a soft blanket on the floor for tummy time or playdates; the plush material will soften the surface underneath your baby's delicate limbs. Smaller, more compact receiving blankets are sold in sets of two or three and make great gifts; some even come with a burp cloth for cleaning up after feedings.
Security blankets are perfectly sized for tiny hands and feature a plush animal to keep your little one company in the crib. Comforting and machine washable, they'll be an essential item everywhere your tot travels, from the play yard to the stroller. Security blankets can be folded up and kept inside the diaper bag anytime your kiddo needs something familiar to cheer him or up.
Take good care of your bundle of joy by wrapping him or her in a plush, insulating baby blanket. Whether in your arms or in a crib, your baby will feel warm and protected in a soft baby blanket from Kmart.
