The cuddly blanket is your child’s most loyal companion

A cuddle cloth will accompany your baby from the very beginning on. It will be in the cot or the rollaway bed, it will be taken into the hammock or the baby sling, accompany you on trips with your stroller and will of course be brought into the car. The soft cloth will give a pleasant feeling of security. It will lightly smell after familiar places or people, calms and will give certainty. It will fulfill different purposes: Your baby will use it to cuddle, to play with and make his first grasp exercises. However, he will probably also chew on the cloth, pull it over his eyes or head and use it as a pillow. The cuddly blanket is basically a cloth for everything in the design of a cuddly toy. That’s why you should put emphasis on choosing one for your child.

Choosing the right cuddly blanket

This cloth/blanket will have to stand a lot if you want to use it over several years. According to experiences, these blankets often get dirty when your e.g. at the playground, in kindergarten or on a walk in a forest. They drop, are used by other children, get in contact with pets and though have to sleep in your child’s cot…

  • Washability is essential! A good cuddle blanket should stand higher temperatures than 30°C for washing, of course in a washing machine. Because when your child puts the cloth into his mouth, it should be hygienic again to not get any infectious diseases.
  • Skin-friendly fibers are important. Most of the manufacturers perch on cotton or cotton polyester mixed-fibers. This mixture of materials is easy to clean and lies pleasantly on the skin. There are also cloths made of microfibers which do not differ to cotton cloths in skin sensation.
  • Which size is suitable? That depends on the preferences of your little one and you. There are cloths which have a squared size of 32cm and other ones, which only have 15cm. Some children prefer smaller and more compact ones, others like them bigger. However, it is not all about the size: There are round and squared cuddly blankets, star-shaped and rectangular ones, thick (multilayered) and thin. Some cloths have knots at the edges, or labels. However, in the end it is important that your little one will like it.
  • The design should be correct. You will have to be just as satisfied as your little one when choosing the cuddly blanket; however, in the end both of you are on the go with it. If you find stripes or points too tritely, that will be totally fine. Most of the children do like cloths more which are in the design of a cuddly toy anyway, like the ones by Sterntaler or Sigikid with head and paws. Some of the blankets have their head in the middle; others have it at the end. And some of the cloths are designed in such a clever way that they can be folded up to be a cuddly toy.

Bunny, bear or dog? The cuddly blanket will replace a cuddly toy.

The most classical cuddly toy, the teddy bear, is disused with most of the children - and was replaced by a cuddly blanket which will accompany your little one until kindergarten and further. Being a mixture of comforter, soother, cuddly toy and thin pillow, this blanket is absolutely useful. The child-appropriate design as ladybird, baby calf, bunny, dog, cat or bear will attract your little one and encourage him to play during the wake hours of a day. That will stimulate the development. The use of the knotted edges, colourful labels, tangible applications and other extras should thus never be underrated. Everything which creates curiosity will encourage the development. A cuddly blanket will also always be a toy for your little one.
