One of my baby things weaknesses is a good baby blanket. But blankets are more than cute, they serve a very important purpose. Sometimes many. After 4+ years, two babies, and lots and lots of blankets, I have my favorites and opinions on the best baby blankets out there, sure to serve every purpose you could ever need.
Best double-duty blanket: The swaddle scarf/blanket from Coveted Things is really big, so it works great as a swaddle, a scarf, a nursing cover, a stroller or car seat cover, and a photo shoot backdrop. Plus they all have sweet or funny sayings, giving them lots of personality.
Best Everyday Blanket: These bright blankets from June and January (formerly Little Hip Squeaks) are one of my favorite everyday blankets because they are super soft, lightweight, breathable, and cute. Perfect for swaddling and to have in your diaper bag.
Best swaddle blanket: Aden + Anais are the go-to swaddle blanket for good reason. The cotton muslin makes them the perfect swaddles, but the prints are super cute too. Every parent should have a set of these in his/her blanket arsenal.
Best Blanky: Every baby should have a super soft and cuddly blanket and my favorites come from Saranoni. You can get a receiving blanket size, or a smaller lovey, or a full size for mom and baby snuggling. These are a must-feel!
Best keep warm blanket: My favorite sweater blanket is by Wren and Rumor. The colors, patterns, prints, and weight is perfect for some tummy time or as a stroller blanket during chilly walks.
So I know that’s actually 6 favorites, not five but I had to include the lovey. It’s not technically a blanket, so I don’t think I broke my Five Faves rules. I also have a blanket from Max and Moose that I love and that is super soft, and Solly Baby just announced that they are releasing swaddle packs, which I’m really excited to try. There are so many great blanket options out there. What are your favorite blankets for baby?
