The best baby blankets for a Chicago winter

Baby, it’s cold outside. Keep unforgiving winter weather at bay with four baby blankets that’ll have your little ones feeling as warm as a cup of cocoa.

Wish you had the sewing skills of grandmotherly fame, but only know your way around a needle when a button falls off a shirt? L’il Monkeys Personalized Baby Gifts has the snuggly, signature solution. The Canada-based, mom-created company keeps out the chill with their super soft, two-tone, anti-pill waffle fleece blankets that are handcut and sewn with textured ribbons all around the edge, giving baby something stimulating and silky to touch and chew. Personalize with coordinating handcut letters (spell out a first name or nickname).

Chicago weather is often likened to Ireland’s with all four seasons happening in just one day. Rain or Shine Kids came up with a 5-in-1 all weather WooBee water resistant stroller blanket to complement your favorite baby gear. The unique combination of blanket and attachable cover allow parents five basic, yet essential, every day uses, including stroller blanket, carrier cover, infant car seat blanket, nursing cover, and play mat (or in a pinch, changing pad). Try the polar fleece, rip stop nylon backed bblanket for the same 5-in-1 design in a heavier weight.

Kids that have allergies (and even those that don’t) want all the cushy softness that comes with My Blankee’s Dotzy baby blanket from Rosenberry Rooms. Made from hypoallergenic fuzzy cheniile on the front and back, each blanket is available a huge range of colors and is finished with a coordinating two inch satin border. Wish it came in adult sizes? It does. Order a matching mommy or daddy style up to a size king.

Embrace eco-chic with the Petite Couverture from mom-owned and -operated Beba Bean. Made from environmentally-friendly and naturally breathable bamboo (think of it as nature’s sustainable heating and cooling system), this baby blanket has the luxurious look and feel of cashmere, not to mention built in UV protection and antibacterial properties.
