A soft swaddle blanket is one of the most useful and personal gifts that expectant parents can receive for their new arrival. Even when babies are still too small for pull toys or other games, they will be able to use swaddling blankets from the moment they are born. You should always take care when choosing a baby blanket for a friend of loved one since babies’ skin is very sensitive. Luckily, there are some helpful tips that you can follow to help you pick out the perfect blanket.

First, consider the safety of the baby that’s going to be using the baby swaddle blanket. Any blanket that you decide to purchase should be hypoallergenic since it will be right next to the sensitive skin of the infant. Also watch for any loose ends or potential threads that could come loose from any stitching. These loose ends can easily get caught around the baby’s fingers and toes and may even cut their delicate skin. So always ensure that there are none.

Now you need to think about the overall comfort of the baby that’s going to be using your swaddle blanket. The baby needs to feel secure and comfortable inside the blanket, otherwise they will simply cry. The world is a new place for infants and feeling secure helps them cope with the changes they are experiencing. Be sure that the blanket is neither too rough or even too soft. It should feel pleasant against your own skin and be light when carried around.

Finally, keep in mind that newborns are going to be messy. You can be sure that any blanket you purchase as a gift will be getting dirty and need to be washed often. When looking for baby swaddling blankets, get one that is easy to clean and will dry quickly. A new mother will have her hands full with her new infant, a difficult-to-clean blanket is not something that she will appreciate.  You should also avoid any loud or vibrant colors with the blanket you choose. Go for light, pastel colors, or try to choose a blanket that will match the colors the new parents have chosen for their baby’s nursery.
