7 Reasons You Need Moses Basket Blankets For Your Newborn

So, you've got your baby's Moses basket set up in the nursery and ready for their arrival. But what about the Moses basket bedding?

Sure, you could just go out and buy any old baby blanket, but choosing a Moses basket blanket that is soft, comfortable and specifically designed for the baby can make all the difference in your baby's overall comfort.

As a new parent, you should be aware that you shouldn't leave any loose blankets in the Moses basket with your baby while they are sleeping or unsupervised. Loose blankets can increase the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in the crib, so make sure always to follow the safe sleep guidelines. T

hat being said, there are plenty of benefits to keeping your baby warm and cosy with a blanket. Moses baskets should only be used for the first three to four months of your newborn's life, so you want to make sure they are as comfortable as possible during that time.

Let's take a look at seven of the benefits of Moses basket blankets below.

1. Moses Basket Blankets Are Lightweight

Well-crafted Moses basket blankets should be made of lightweight, breathable fabric. This is important because you don't want your baby to get too hot while sleeping, which could lead to discomfort or even danger.

Materials like jersey cotton or muslin are perfect for Moses basket blankets as they are soft and gentle on baby's skin while still being lightweight enough to allow airflow. Heavy and bulky blankets are a no-go for the Moses basket.

2. Baby Blankets are Breathable

Baby blankets should always be breathable to avoid the risk of SIDS. As we mentioned, jersey cotton and muslin are perfect materials for Moses basket blankets as they allow airflow while still being soft and cosy.

Regulating your baby's temperature is important for their comfort, and Moses basket blankets can help you do just that. Pairing a breathable Moses basket mattress with a breathable blanket will help ensure your baby stays at a comfortable temperature all night long.

3. Most Moses Basket Blankets are Versatile

Who said baby blankets have to be used just for the Moses basket? Many parents find that their baby's favourite blanket quickly becomes a security blanket or lovey that they take everywhere with them.

Moses basket blankets are often the perfect size for baby to snuggle up with in the stroller, car seat or even when they're playing on the floor. And since they're usually lightweight and breathable, they won't cause your baby to overheat when used in other settings.

4. Cleaning Moses Basket Blankets is Easy

Moses basket blankets are usually machine washable, which makes them easy to care for. You won't have to worry about handwashing them or taking them to the dry cleaner. After all, accidents are inevitable, and you'll want to be able to easily clean your baby's blanket when they do happen!

Many will also be okay to tumble dry to speed up the drying process, but be sure to check the care instructions before doing so.


5. Baby Bedding Blankets are Affordable

You don't need to spend a lot of money to get a good quality baby blanket. Sure, there are luxury options out there, but you can find plenty of affordable Moses basket blankets that will do the job just fine.

The best way to put a blanket in your baby's Moses basket is to fold it in half and then place it inside the basket. This will ensure that the blanket is evenly distributed and that your baby has plenty of room to move around. Tuck the blanket in around the sides of the basket so that it doesn't slip out.

You should dress your Moses basket with a light blanket or baby sleeping bag, fitted sheets and a cover. You may also want to include a pillow for your baby to sleep on, but be sure to remove it once they start to sit up or roll over.

You should remove any loose blankets from your baby's sleep area overnight to reduce the risk of SIDS. However, you can still dress your baby in a sleep sack or use a light blanket to keep them warm.

You may want to include a pillow for your baby in their Moses basket, but be sure to remove it once they start to sit up or rollover. Pillows can increase the risk of SIDS, so it's important to be cautious when using them.
