THE SIZE OF THE BLANKET FOR MY CHILD
When choosing a children’s blanket, you must of course take into account the size of your child as well as the dimensions of his bed. Here are some indicative sizes for each child’s age:
THE MATERIAL OF THE CHILD’S PLAID
When you buy a blanket for a baby, we invite you to take a few precautions when choosing the material of your blanket .
Indeed, it is important to choose a blanket whose material does not irritate your baby’s skin, as this can cause allergies. Therefore, cotton blankets or synthetic blankets are the best choices for a newborn.
At the same time, it is better not to choose a woolen plaid for your toddler.
Among the synthetic throws, you can buy a flannel throw which is super soft, and above all, which does not risk causing an allergy. There are also knitted throws without wool or with a mixture of wool and synthetic fiber, these can be an alternative if you prefer knitted throws.
If you choose a blanket for your baby, it will quickly become essential for your little one. It will retain its scent and reassure your baby when he is in bed or at the nurse’s. The blanket can be useful when you breastfeed your baby or when you give him a warm bottle in your hands. You will see that as your child grows, he will take his plaid everywhere with him, like one of his comforters.
For older children, the material of their plaid should be chosen according to your needs. If you want your child to cover up at night, choose a natural material plaid or a mixed material plaid instead. If your child uses the plaid during these games or as a carpet, in this case it is better to choose a synthetic plaid that is easy to wash.
The current trend is moving towards plaids in double material, one side wool or faux fur, the other in cotton. These throws have an advantage over other throws, because the natural material retains the heat and the synthetic material provides a nice appearance for a child’s throw. Embroideries are also a very trendy visual element for plaids. In addition, you can personalize your child’s plaid at no great cost.
If your child likes cartoon characters, the fleece blanket will be more suitable. Fleece throws are easier to color, which is why manufacturers use this material to print a very wide range of colors, such as the famous Disney throws. This material keeps the color over the washes.
THE AESTHETIC ASPECT OF A CHILD’S PLAID
Your child will probably prefer to have a colorful blanket. Among the colored plaids you can find plain plaids or printed plaids.
The choice of color and design of your child’s plaid may depend on the color of his room, the color of the bed linen, the color of his bed, your child’s passions, your own tastes, as well as purposes of use.

At the moment the most popular plaids are those with the Mignons or Spiderman designs for boys and Hello Kitty for girls.
