Well, I don’t have a kid but from several posts on here, people LOVE giving blankets as a gift, so other than perhaps something that matches your bedding and a few receiving blanket type things, I would exspect that people will get them for you, registered or not.

I have tons. I love aden and anais with the bamboo fabric. We have enough to use a couple a day. Since babies spit up and can potty on them I suggest register for as many as you can. You can never have enough. We have some that are dressy for church, regular everyday blankets, and some to match outfits.

I may be totally wrong – but I think that, for the first few months, they are not supposed to have a blanket in their bed when they sleep.  I think it presents a suffocation hazard.  Again, I’m not 100% sure, but I think that they can have a blanket once they can turn their head, etc.

Good question! I have 18 all together and that includes swaddle blankets and the soft fuzzy type. We also have 3 nice quilts from different family members…I hope that’s enough!

I worked in a fabric store back home and wow do people love making blankets. Everyone always told me make sure there big 40×40 inches at the smallest.

I’ve had three kids.

Between, leaving them places, the messes, food, puke, poop and anything else that makes a blanket dirty, I never had enough of them.

I went with 2-3 thick fleecy type blankets, a few stretchy cotton swaddling blankets, and a few muslin blankets. For me it’s the perfect amount. There is always an extra if one gets dirty (and trust me they will). Plus that should cover all your bases for all seasons.

oh! also, I had a couple of those wearable blankets, like swaddle pods or whatever they’re called. I’ll post a link. They are excellent because they stay in place and eliminate the hazard of a regular blanket during sleep. My son loved to be swaddled, so these we excellent for me. I would definitely recommend getting 2 though, because they will get dirty.

I preferred the zipper one, because the velcro one was really loud.

@roxy821:  I have a whole bunch on my registry, too! I think I put 4 swaddlers, 8 receiving blankets and 2 big, soft fleece blankets. Figure we can’t have enough! 🙂

Let’s see, for Henri we have:

  • 5 Aiden and Anais swaddle blankets
  • 4 SwaddleMe blankets
  • 10 blankets of varying thickness for covering the car seat or wrapping up while out
  • 3 handmade quilts
  • 30 receiving blankets (we use them as burp cloths)

I think we have way more receiving blankets and cover up blankets than we need.  For swaddle blankets, I love the A&A blankets for naps (they’re much lighter) and the SwaddleMes for bedtime (since he can’t break out of them).  The number we have is just about perfect since I keep one in the diaper bag, one in the daycare bag, one downstairs, and one upstairs at all times.
