Baby comforters also know as blankie’s are a soft and cuddly transitional object. They provide baby with a sense of safety and security. It’s a portable bestie if you will, used to signal a time to relax and unwind for bedtime. It also provides comfort for stressful times. Things like separation anxiety, immunisations, long travel, childcare or change in routine for example.
The idea behind baby comforters is psychological. In time and with consistency baby is able to transfer some of their feelings to this object. In turn, this gives them the ability to self soothe independently at bed time. And makes them feel safe or a reminder of you in stressful situations. Makes sense right? Which is why we often get customers buying two identical comforters! A replacement for when one is being washed or worse, accidentally left behind somewhere.
Here’s a little selection of the comforters we love and why.
Numero 74 Lovely Star Doudou is made from GOTS Certified 100% Organic cotton. They are each handmade by skilful artisans in Thailand. Super soft and cuddly and easy to hold in a perfect size for any age.
The star is a timeless classic design and synonymous with all kinds of positive things. The song twinkle twinkle little star, make a wish, shooting star, stars in the night sky, a rising star. The list goes on!
Something baby is attached to usually ends up as a keepsake. Other than a keepsake, this could be extended and used as decor or attached to the top of a wand stick! Cherished and kept even when the baby grows up, a tender souvenir of childhood.
Speaking of keepsakes, one baby comforter that immediately comes to mind is our lovely Nobodinoz So Natural Knitted Teethers. This elegant two-in-one provides not only comfort but also relief for when your little one is starting to teethe.
With its two old time classic features in the knitted organic cotton comforter and natural soild maple wood ring, this is one keepsake that will stand up to the test of time both in durability and style.
And if you want to keep it classic but would like something a little more fun, then you can’t look past our Kenana Knitters Organic Cotton Lion Comforter. This little guy is special for a number of reasons.
When you purchase any one item from the Kenana Knitters range, you are not only purchasing some of the most beautifully made toys in the world, you are also purchasing a lovingly handmade item from a womens co-op in Kenya. This helps support the women and their families. Each one of these items is signed by their maker and gives you a beautiful story and message to pass on to your child.
So, whether you’re a parent to be or in need of a thoughtful baby gift don’t go past a quality comforter. In need of a little more to go with your comforter? Head to our website and explore our Baby section for some more baby staples.
