5 Interesting and Versatile Uses for Your Baby Blankets

Any baby shopping list wouldn’t be complete without baby blankets! Baby blankets are an essential and are truly versatile, a valuable resource that should be present in any baby nursery. Because of this, it is absolutely important to choose baby blankets that are soft, comfortable, and long-lasting.

We currently have three different kinds of blankets in our collection: muslin, chenille, and sherpa. Despite the differences in the materials used, all of these blankets are ultra-soft and very comfortable. They are also highly durable and can stand the test of time.

Let’s take a look at the different blankets of Living Textiles.

Muslin Jacquard

We have a good number of muslin jacquard blankets that are made of 100% high quality cotton. Our blankets are crafted using the jacquard weaving technique, making them sturdier and more structured than your regular muslin. Our muslin jacquard blankets are also thicker and much softer because they have two layers of premium muslin.


We also have a selection of chenille baby blankets. We are quite fond of using chenille for our baby blankets because they feel incredibly soft and luxurious! Our chenille baby blankets also have an interesting texture to them, which stimulate your baby’s tactile senses. They look adorable and charming, but they are tough and sturdy, too.


Finally, under our Lolli Living brand, we also have a collection of baby blankets with sherpa. These unique baby blankets have a 100% premium cotton side that feature gorgeous and eclectic designs. On the other side is an ultra-soft plush sherpa lining that is perfect for cuddling especially in the cooler months.  

5 Different Uses for Your Living Textiles Baby Blankets

These Living Textiles blankets may be different from one another, but they are all versatile and can be used in many ways. To know how to maximize your baby blankets, here are the 5 different ways you can use them outside the crib.

1.   Stroller Cover

A lightweight and breathable baby blanket, especially one that is made of premium cotton, will make an excellent stroller cover. Yes, you don’t need to buy a separate product for this purpose! You only need a sturdy blanket to shade your baby from the sun while they are in their stroller.

It is important to choose a lightweight blanket as a cover or shade to prevent your baby from getting overheated. Thus, it is important to choose a baby blanket that is made of 100% cotton over something made of synthetic fabric.

2.   Play Mat

There are a lot of play gyms and activity mats that you can buy. However, keep in mind that your baby doesn’t really need a lot of toys to be entertained. It is best to keep their toys simple to encourage your baby to use their growing imagination. You can just use your baby blanket instead of buying a separate play mat.

In this case, we recommend that you choose a fluffy blanket like our chenille baby blankets. With chenille, your baby will be comfortable during their tummy time and the texture will stimulate their senses.

3.   Nursing Cover

If you want to keep your baby covered and protected while you’re nursing them, there’s no need to shell out money for a nursing cover. Basically, all you really need is a piece of cloth that will help you breastfeed your baby in peace. Your baby blanket can do the job.

For this purpose, it is best to use a baby blanket made of a lightweight and breathable material. This will encourage air flow inside the nursing cover and keep the area well-ventilated. A baby blanket made of 100% muslin is the ideal choice for this role.

4.   Makeshift Bib

Here’s another parenting pro-tip for you: always keep at least one baby blanket in your car. This way, when you forget your baby’s bibs, for example, you have the blanket as a backup. A baby blanket works wonders in cleaning spit-ups and food messes when you’re on the go.

While any baby blanket can do the trick, the softness and pureness of muslin make our muslin jacquard blankets the perfect replacement for bibs. They are soft enough for wiping your baby’s delicate mouth; at the same time, they are also sturdy and durable enough for this job.

5.   Nursery Decor

Finally, who says you can’t use baby blankets as part of your nursery decor? Our baby blankets come in designs that are both modern and classic. With their gorgeous aesthetics, these blankets will definitely be a welcome addition to your baby’s nursery.

Our sherpa baby blankets have interesting and eye-catching designs on their cotton side. They are charming, eclectic, and can easily change the look of your nursery. You can drape them over your baby’s crib as an accessory, and you can also pin them to the walls to serve as an accent piece.

As you can see, baby blankets are a worthy investment. They have a lot of different uses other than keeping your baby warm. You don’t need to buy separate nursing covers, sun shades, and play mats. And who knew that they can even be makeshift bibs and a part of your nursery decor?

Baby blankets have so many uses, so don’t scrimp on them! Always choose baby blankets that are beautifully designed and carefully crafted using the finest materials available.
