The Importance of a Special Baby Blankie

Why Kids Love Their Blankies

Tummy Time

Before your child can sit up, roll over, crawl, or walk, they need to develop the muscle strength and confidence to do so. In addition to strengthening neck and shoulder muscles, tummy time is also critical for children to develop their motor skills. In fact, tummy time is so important that the Mayo Clinic recommends starting tummy time on a blanket in a clear area for three to five minutes, two to three times a day. When it comes to your child’s development, you don’t want to leave anything to chance. Our plush Minky puppy baby blankets are perfect for providing a soft cushion during tummy time.

Soothing

While it is true that some babies can be more “touchy” than others, at some point in time, all babies need a little bit of soothing. Many parents want to be the object of their child’s desire when they need comfort, and rightly so. However, teaching your child to self-soothe is very important to their emotional development, and it can give weary parents a few minutes reprieve every so often. Whether they have been scared by a loud noise, they are not feeling well, or they are distressed because mom or dad stepped away momentarily, a baby soother blanket might be all they need to comfort themselves.

Naptime

Sleep is important for your child’s development. It allows the mind and body to rest and prepare itself for emotional advancements and learning new skills. If you are a parent, then you know how easy it can be to worry about whether or not your little one is getting enough sleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends that toddlers need 11 to 14 hours of sleep each day, and part of that sleep comes from napping during the day. If your child has a hard time settling down for a nap, you may find that a plush Minky baby blanket gives them all the snuggles they need to drift off into dreamland.
