Fabulous Baby Receiving Blankets

The receiving blanket is a lightweight material that is soft to the touch. The sizes may differ from square to rectangular and they come in a variety of patterns, and prints. Hospitals still use receiving blankets for newborn babies and the nurses always teach the moms how to swaddle their infants before they are discharged.

Parents and Grandparents love the Zazzle baby receiving blanket. Here are a few customers reviews.

“ This is a go-to baby gift for me when our friends and family have babies. The quality is great and everyone loves how beautiful it looks as well as the size and softness of it”. (J Hughes)
I have purchased numerous baby blankets from Zazzle, this one is my absolute favorite. The design and personalization made it even more special. I am truly in love with this blanket and I know my Son & Daughter-In-Law will love it as well “ (deb7869)
This is a big size baby blanket and very soft, nice size for a crib or carriage. The new parents will have it for many years getting a lot of use from it. What a lovely gift to receive for their new baby. “ (Barbara L)

This blanket can be wrapped around to swaddle the baby to maintain their body heat while they sleep, The receiving blanket can also be used as a changing mat, a burp cloth and a cover for mom when she is nursing and for strollers. The receiving blanket is a must-have for babies because of the many uses.

About Swaddling

"American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says that when done correctly, swaddling can be an effective technique to help calm infants and promote sleep."  
Swaddling is good for your baby because newborns are used to sleeping in a cramped position. When the baby is swaddled they will feel secure and will sleep better. A baby that is swaddled in a receiving blanket sleeps on their back.
The general rule of swaddling is to put your baby to sleep on their back and not to sleep on their stomachs or sides and to stop swaddling when your baby grows to the point that they show signs of rolling, (2 months)

Swaddling is not for all mommies.  My one friend told me she could not swaddle her baby because her baby kept pulling her arm out and wanted to roll over.  So she put her baby to sleep in a swaddle sack. She went on to say that she loved her baby blankets for stroller, car seat, changing table and more.  She continued to use them when her daughter was a toddler.
