16 baby blankets for super soft snuggles

Best baby Blankets on Australian 2021

Keeping baby snug as a bug during the night goes a long way towards a better sleep (for them and for you). And as Australia’s winter months roll in, there’s no better time to invest in a few cosy baby blankets for cuties to snuggle into.

Soft enough to sleep with yet light enough to take on their travels, a baby blanket needs to provide little ones with supreme comfort while being lightweight and breathable for when the nighttime wriggles begin.

But do you go with wool or cotton? A cot size or bassinet size? Blankets come in all shapes and size, and in all colours of the rainbow, so to lend a hand, we’ve listed some key points to consider when you’re looking for that first special blankie for your wee one.

What to look for when buying a blanket for baby

Breathability: A baby blanket needs to be breathable to ensure a night of safe sleep. To test, simply hold the blanket next to a fan and if you can feel the breeze through the blanket, the material is breathable.

Comfort: Comfort is key. Ensure the material is soft enough for baby’s delicate and sensitive skin, and that no harsh chemicals have been used in the manufacturing process.

Size: As well as keeping baby warm, blankets make fantastic floor mats, sunshades and even nursery decoration. Size range from bassinet to cot and single bed sizes – so think about the ways you’ll use the blanket before you buy one.

Design: As lovely as tassels and ribbons are, they are not considered safe for sleeping. Try to stick to a simple design with no loose parts until bub is a little older.

Ease of washing: Like all things a baby needs and uses, the baby blanket may get a little messy. Look for materials that are machine washable and dry quickly – the sooner bub is reunited with that special blankie the better.

How many blankets does a baby need?

Many parents manage just fine with one special blanket for baby, others like to have one for the house and another for when they’re out and about with the pram.

How do you safely use blankets in the cot?

According to Red Nose Australia, if you are using blankets in the cot, you should ensure baby’s feet are positioned at the end of the cot and use lightweight blankets that won’t cause put bub at risk of overheating. Loose bedding isn’t safe in the cot, so blankets should be tucked in firmly so that they won’t cover bub’s face during the night.

How big is a standard baby blanket?

In Australia, sizes vary quite a bit between brands, but most baby blankets are approximately 100cm x 90cm and super convenient for bundling up bubs in the pram, keeping them warm in the car, or even popping on the floor as a play rug.
