is there a such thing as breatheable blankets?

Like if the baby put it over their face they can still breathe through it? Someone told me there was but I never heard about it before.

  • Never heard of it. I'd just rather use no blankets and be safe.

  • The woven cotton blankets are breathable, you know the ones with a weave and you yank on them and they have tiny woven squares you can see through

  • Any blanket is breathable in a sense, but the lighter woven blankets are more so then others.

  • I think maybe you are worried about a blanket to cover your Sweet One while you are outside going in or out, am I right? I have two that I feel OK using for that purpose, They are made by Carter's and they are knitted, they look like something that could have been made by Grandma only thinner and less loose fuzzies to tickle little noses. I used them this summer for sunscreening and I think they will be good this winter to keep her lil face warmer than bare and let her breathe as well.

    on the other hand if you are talking about inside, long term use, I would have to question the necessity of the blanket, the age of the child, etc.

  • If I put a blanket over the babies face, I use a knit blanket. I have a couple of those. Also, I have a car seat cover that will keep baby safe and warm in the winter.
