The cuddly blanket is the most reliable companion for your child

A cuddly blanket accompanies your child from the very start. It can be taken into baby cot or bed side cot, into the hammock or baby sling, accompanies your child on trips in the pram and of course is also allowed to ride with him in the car. Ideally, it is always with your child. The soft blanket or cloth makes your little one feel comfortable when embraced and pressed on his cheek. It smells like familiar places and people, calms your child and gives a sense of security. At the same time, the cuddly blanket fulfils different purposes: Your child will use it for cuddling, playing and making his first grasping exercises. Your little one will also chew on the blanket, suck one or two corners, maybe pull it over his eyes or head, or use it as a pillow. Basically, the cuddly blanket for children is an all-purpose item that comes in the design of a cuddly animal and will accompany your little one in every situation throughout his first years. That is why, it is very important to choose these items wisely.

A cuddly blanket must be chosen carefully

A cuddly blanket or cloth that accompanies your child on a daily basis for many years has to put up with a lot of things. Based on experience, cuddly cloths are very likely to get dirty when your child takes it with him to the playground, kindergarten or into the forest. They will fall down, come in contact with your pets and will be examined by other children. At the end of the day, they are also supposed to accompany your child to bed. Below, we have collected the most important features a cuddly blanket must have in order to make it through your little one’s infancy and toddlerhood without being replaced by a new one.

  • Being machine washable is inevitable! A good cuddly blanket or cloth will even survive higher temperatures than 30°C in the washing machine. Since your little one tends to put the blanket into his mouth a lot, you should make sure that it is sanitised and clean – this way, you can prevent him from getting infectious diseases.
  • Skin-friendly fibres are important. Most manufacturers use cotton or fibre blends of cotton and polyester. This fibre blend is easy to care and feels comfortable on the skin. If the materials are roughened, a fluffy soft cuddly cloth is created. Furthermore, there are cloths and blankets made of microfibers that hardly differ from the feeling cotton blankets or cloths leave on the skin.
  • Which size is suitable? The size of such a cuddly cloth or blanket depends on the preferences of your child. There are cloths that measure 32 x 32 cm and others that only measure 15 x 15 cm. Some children prefer smaller and more compact cloths while others like bigger ones. The size does not always play a major role: There are cuddly cloths that feature round or square shapes, others are available in a star-shaped or rectangular design, some of them are thick (with several layers) and others are thin. There are also cuddly blankets that feature knots in each corner or labels or stickers on the outer edges with which your child can play. The perfect cuddly blanket or cloth should be loved and cuddled by your child.
  • The design must be the right one to suit both you and your child. You as parents have to be as delighted by your child’s cuddly cloth as your little one himself, after all you are both out and about at the same time when the cuddly cloth is in on it. So it is totally fine, if you regard stripes and dots as much too plain and ordinary. Anyway, most children rather like cuddly cloths or blankets such as the ones by Sterntaler or Sigikid that resemble cuddly animals and feature head and paws. Some cloths and blankets come with an animal’s head in the centre while others have a head sewed on the upper end. There are even cuddly cloths and blankets that can be transformed into a cuddly animal by simply folding them.

Rabbit, bear or dog? The cuddly cloth or blanket replaces the cuddly toy

The classic cuddly toy, the teddy bear, has served its time for most children and is now being replaced by a cuddly cloth or blanket that accompanies your little one throughout infancy and beyond. As a combination of comforter, soother, cuddly toy and thin pillow or cushion, a cuddly cloth or blanket turns out to be extremely convenient. Its child-oriented design which features a ladybug, little calf, rabbit, dog, cat or bear appeals to your baby and encourages him to play with it during the day. This stimulates and promotes the natural development of your child. That is why, the benefits knotted corners, colourful stickers and labels, appliqués and other extras can have, must not be underestimated. Everything that can excite your little one’s curiosity also fosters his development. After all, a cuddly blanket or cloth is not only a comfort object but also a toy.
