Baby Blankets and Shawls for Winter

Keeping babies warm in winter can be difficult.  It is very easy to overdo it and make them too warm, which can be just as bad as not being warm enough.  When mobile, pram blankets are ideal for keeping out the cold and there are plenty of different designs from which to choose.  Children love cartoon characters and there are animal designs such as giraffes, rabbits, and teddy bears that are sure to delight them.  The blankets are usually made from fleece.  This material is ideal, as it is machine washable and very cost effective.  The fleece has good thermal qualities so even when out and about on the coldest days, parents can be sure that their babies are warm.

Cellular blankets are also available in cot size and these are designed to be free of allergens.  They are made from 100% cotton, which is a completely natural fibre and is machine washable.  These top quality blankets will last a long time if cared for properly.  These come in pram sizes as well and they are available in a wide range of colours.

An alternative to a baby’s winter blanket is a shawl.  These are often made from acrylic and have a similar appearance to wool, although they are much cheaper to produce, as acrylic is a synthetic fibre.  They offer the same softness as wool and have a good thermal rating. These are ideal for wrapping a baby in if he needs to be carried.
