What to Look for When Shopping for the Best Baby Blankets: Caden Lane’s Buying Guide
Rather than simply providing you with a list of the best baby blankets, we’re going to explain what you should look for when shopping. These criteria will help you ensure you’re getting your money’s worth. Here’s what separates the best from the rest:
Soft, Natural Fabric
This one should go without saying - but you can’t consider a blanket “the best” unless it’s made from a soft, natural fabric. Otherwise, your toddler will resist being wrapped in the blanket - fussing as the itchy, agitating material touches their skin.
You can avoid all of this by sticking with the buttery soft bamboo fabric or brushed poly jersey material we have at Caden Lane. Our bamboo baby blankets aren’t just soft and comfy - they’re strong enough to last a lifetime!
Maybe you’re shopping for a blanket for the stroller. Or, perhaps you need one for tummy time. What about the crib, though? The point is, you need a baby blanket that can be used for anything, anywhere. And this was a key consideration that went into designing our oversized baby blankets - they’re perfect for anywhere life takes you and your little one! We even have baby milestone blankets for taking pictures and documenting your little one’s journey through early life.
Fun Designs That Match Your Nursery
Speaking of versatility, you need access to a wide array of fun designs to help you build the nursery you’ve been dreaming of. Whether you’ve got a baby boy or a little girl, you can count on Caden Lane to provide you with an assortment of styles to choose from.
Want some fun-loving farm animals on your blanket? We’ve got that. Want a simple floral print? You’ll find that here, too - along with everything in between. You can’t beat the variety in store for you at Caden Lane!
Size and Weight
There’s a fine line between a blanket being too small and too big - but finding that sweet spot is key to ensuring your baby loves the blanket and actually uses it! More than that, a bulky, heavy blanket increases the risk of suffocation for newborns.
Let’s face it - babies are a mess. Whether they spit up on their blanket or spill their drink, you need a blanket that can stand up to constant washing. But more importantly, you need a blanket that’s easy to care for. If you have to jump through hoops to keep the blanket intact, what good is it to you? As a parent, you’ve got way more important things to worry about.
That’s why we’ve made it as simple and straightforward to care for our blankets and other newborn accessories as possible. Just throw them in a delicate, cold water machine wash cycle and use a low heat drying cycle. It’s that easy!
Whether you’re shopping for your own little one or you want to really impress that mom-to-be with a unique gift, the ability to personalize blankets is something to consider along your search for the best baby blanket. And as you may already know, we’ve come to be known as the premiere choice for personalized baby blankets! It’s SO easy to add a name to your blanket and make something just for them.
