You've heard the term 'light as a feather'. Down filled blankets are very lightweight. This gives you a wonderfully sublime feeling when you want to be warm but not smashed or squashed by a heavy blanket. When you want to take a quick nap, just cover up with a down throw blanket and you can snuggle in it's wonderful warmth without the weight you would feel with heavy blankets or quilts.
The baby can wear it as well. Some of these blankets also have embroidery done on them. They look very beautiful on the baby. You can also find some with animal shapes on them. Please notice the stitches and pattern very carefully. They should not harm the baby in any way.
The electric blanket was invented somewhere around the 1900's. This primitive invention was a far cry from the modern electric blankets of today. These blankets were big and bulky and very dangerous to use. The electric blanket gained notoriety in the 1920's when tuberculosis sanitariums began using them. TB patients were placed outside in the fresh air a lot and the electric blanket was used to keep them warm.
Receiving blankets are those perfect-sized blankets made especially for small babies. They are made of very soft, usually cotton or other washable fabric. They may be just a thick light flannel. Cotton baby blankets abound in color and patterns matching nursery themes. For slightly older babies, you can choose slightly heavier blankets, perhaps a cotton woven design.
