From the day they're born, babies often need blankets to keep them warm and snug. Over time, a baby's blanket often becomes a comfort item that helps them feel safe and secure. At Walmart, you'll find a wide variety of baby blankets in different sizes, colors and materials, so you can easily choose ones that suit your baby's needs.
If your baby is born in a hospital, they'll probably be sent home in a receiving blanket, a lightweight blanket used to swaddle newborns. Many parents find it helpful to have a large supply of receiving blankets for newborn babies. Some find that a larger blanket made from a lightweight fabric, such as muslin, makes swaddling easier. Others find swaddling blankets that self-fasten with velcro or zippers to be the easiest option.
As your baby outgrows swaddling, they may still need a blanket for warmth. Since it's not safe to leave a loose blanket in the crib with your baby, you may opt for a wearable blanket. You may also want to get a few fleece blankets to keep your baby warm in the stroller or carseat.
With Every Day Low Prices on all sorts of baby blankets, Walmart has you — and your baby — covered. Save money. Live better.
