What distinguishes a cover blanket?
Blankets are specially designed for cuddling babies. Their use is by no means limited to on the go. The upper corner of a wrap blanket is shaped into a hood, while the lower corner holds together as a cosy foot sack. The two side corners can be folded around the little one after the baby has been placed in the blanket. This shape makes it easy to adjust the fit of the cover when the baby is sleeping. With increasing age, the natural urge to move increases in many babies. In this case, a model with two legs is recommended instead of a closed footmuff.
Straps can easily be threaded through the slits sewn into the cover to fasten the child's seat belt. In this way, the blanket reliably fulfils its task when the child is on the move. The cover can be combined with all commercially available models of prams and infant carriers.
Why is a cover useful?
Blankets are an indispensable aid for keeping babies warm, not only for newborns but also for older babies. This is because the temperature regulation still has to fully mature after birth. For this reason, care should be taken to ensure adequate protection against hypothermia on the first journey home from the hospital. But a cover for children is also a valuable companion for breastfeeding, changing diapers or playing on the way and at home.
Is a cover only suitable in winter?
Babies naturally have a greater need for sleep. It is therefore worth having a suitable blanket with you all year round. To prevent the little one from sweating, pay close attention to the material, especially with baby blank ets for the summer. Cotton blankets are generally lighter and more suitable for summer temperatures. A fleece blanket, on the other hand, is the right choice in winter.
What should a baby wear in the cover?
As a rough guide, one layer less can be put on than without the cover. It is advisable to check the temperature regularly with young children. The best way to do this is by feeling the back of the child's neck.
