Multiple Ways To Use Receiving Blankets #DisneyBabyCA

It's been almost three months since I laid eyes on my little girl. Time has flew by and I can't believe she'll be three months this week. I'm happy to say that we have worked out a system that works very well for our family to where everyone is happy and use to this new crazy schedule.

With both of my kids being in after school activities and with all of the family gatherings that have been happening this last month, I have to make sure that I have everything that I need in my diaper bag for whatever reason.

One of my go to items is our receiving blanket. You can use these things for just about anything. My favorite thing to use them for would be as a burp cloth for our little girl, just in case she spits up. There are a number of different ways you can use a receiving blanket and Disney Baby has compiled a list for different ways you can use receiving blankets:

USE #1: Nursing cover
Receiving blankets are both lightweight and easy to fold up and store, they make excellent nursing covers. Tie a knot in one corner and rest it over baby’s head to help keep the blanket in place. 

USE #2: Burp cloth
This is what I use my receiving blanket the most for. Throw a receiving blanket over your shoulder to wipe your baby’s face and protect your clothes from post-feeding spit up.

USE #3: Coverlet
If your baby is cold, receiving blankets are the perfect way to add a quick layer. They can also be used to soothe your little one, as something to hold, snuggle or chew.

USE #4: Changing mat
Receiving blankets make great changing mats, especially when you’re out in public. Simply fold the blanket and lay it down on a flat surface to create a soft, easy-to-clean changing station.

USE#5: Play mat
Lay a blanket on the ground to give baby a clean surface to play on. If your little one is playing with lots of toys, keeping them on the receiving blanket also helps to make clean up a breeze: just gather the corners together to pick everything up at once!

USE #6: Sunshade

Drape a receiving blanket over the front of your stroller to create instant shade, or block the sun from your car by tucking one into the top of the window. In both cases, the blanket will cut the glare and help keep baby nice and cool.
