Cool Skull Receiving Blanket

#ReceivingBlankets are often given to new moms and dads at #BabyShowers. They range from simple, small, lightweight, soft blankets to elaborate double sided, brightly colored, textured blankets with all types of finishes. Keepsake blankets can be embroidered with the child's name. Handmade crocheted blankets or receiving blankets handed down from generation to generation are also popular.

Receiving blankets are typically used with newborn #babies to control heat and for swaddling. Receiving blankets allow a mother to wrap her newborn in a blanket when presenting him or her to adoring family and friends. The blanket will act as security and germ protection.

Since newborn babies are not accustomed to free, open space they tend to feel more secure when wrapped in a warm, restricting blanket. Swaddling seems to be making a come back in recent years. Many brands have introduced blankets specifically for swaddling such as Summer Infant SwaddleMe, The Miracle Blanket and #Boppy.

Receiving blankets and #SwaddlingBlankets have a multitude of uses. Blankets can be used for burping, changing diapers, as play places, stroller blankets, for breastfeeding privacy and even security and teething.

By Elle Brown Saw Queensryche last night at a local venue, The #StarlandBallroom, in Sayreville, #NJ. Most rockers know #Sayreville as the birthplace of the band #BonJovi. And, clubs like Starland keep rock alive. If you're a "Ryche" fan, you're aware there are two Queensryches. We saw #Queensryche with #GeoffTate (and #RudySarzo). The other Queensryche […]
