Did you get a personalized baby blanket from the hospital after your baby was born?

At the hospital I had my son, it's customary for them to give a personalized baby blanket embroidered with the baby's name on it. Took about 6-8 weeks for me to get it. I'd eventually like to get it put into a shadow box along with the hat he wore and a couple other items.

  • My hospital does not do baby blankets.  Our hospital  gives out knit/crochet caps -- their ladies auxiliary makes them in blue/white or pink/white for all the newborn babies, and the babies can keep them.

  • Nope, not for healthy babies......the babies that are in the NICU get crochet baby blankets. All the babies get a crochet hat though, any one can make them and donate them to the hospital.......I've made about 50 of them and donated them :)

  • That sounds cute. Our hospital didn't do that. But a friend of my mom's gave us one before Kyra was born. :-)

  • My son got a hat and a blanket that were knitted by volunteers. He was in the NICU, and they always do that for their "special" babies. I've got them saved for him.

  • No, in fact I had to go back to the hospital three times to get a new birth certificate with our oldest because they couldn't get her name right. The certificate was all we got from the hospital.
