Baby Receiving Blankets for Boys

Receiving blankets are one of the best shower gifts for a new baby. They are so versatile and can be used for so many things. You really can’t have too many. A receiving blanket is traditionally used to swaddle baby in directly after birth. It’s important to conserve the baby’s body heat. If it was a hospital birth, then usually the baby goes home wrapped snugly in a receiving blanket.  These blankets are used a lot once the baby comes home too.  They can still be used for swaddling and as the baby grows they are often used for burp cloths.  You might lay a receiving blanket down on the floor and lay baby down on it.  They can also be used in baby’s stroller or car seat.

A favorite receiving blanket can even become a “lovey” or a security blanket.

The cute sock monkey blanket set shown here is 100% cotton and is machine washable.  When buying things for a new baby and a new mother make sure the item is machine washable.  New moms don’t have the time or the energy to be washing things by hand.  As pretty as the item may be, think about what the new mother can handle.  Sometimes it’s a challenge to just grab a shower, so she certainly doesn’t want to be washing stuff out by hand.  Just click on the image of the sock monkey blanket to read more about it or to purchase it.
