10 of the Best Baby Blankets in Australia in 2024

10 Of The Best Baby Blankets In Australia In 2023

There’s nothing quite as adorable as your little bundle of joy wrapped up in a warm and cosy baby blanket. Babies spend a lot of time sleeping, so it makes sense to invest in a good quality blanket or three! 

But baby blankets do more than offer warmth and comfort for our little ones – they’re heirlooms and keepsakes that will bring back those precious newborn memories for generations to come. 

There are plenty of baby blankets on the market ranging in colour, size, fabric and weight – the options are endless! 

To help make the decision a little easier, we’ve wrapped up 10 of the best baby blankets in 2024. 

So what are the main things to consider when choosing a baby blanket?


Baby blankets aren’t just for the bassinet or cot. They’re handy for the car and pram too, and can even double as a super-soft play mat. Most blankets are around 80 x 100cm, but you might want a couple of different sizes to suit different needs. A slightly large cot-sized blanket will grow with your child for years to come.

New babies have sensitive skin so a baby blanket should be made out of materials that are gentle on skin and breathable to make it comfortable to sleep (and we ALL know how important sleep is!). The best breathable material is 100% cotton, but Merino wool is also a natural fibre that is breathable. 


Of course, we want to keep bubs snug as a bug, but babies can easily overheat, so always keep this in mind when choosing a blanket. You may need a couple of blankets with different weights and thicknesses to suit different seasons.

Easy to clean

Let’s be honest, babies are messy little things, so you want to make sure their blanket is machine washable and will dry fairly quickly. As babies get older, they may become quite attached to their special blanket, so you don’t want it taking forever to clean!


As cute as cuddly blankets are, it’s important that bubs are safe when sleeping, and this means no loose bedding in the cot or bassinet. Safe sleeping guidelines from Red Nose Australia state that if blankets are being used instead of a safe sleeping bag, always place your baby with his or her feet at the bottom of the cot, using layers of lightweight blankets that can be added or removed easily according to the ambient feel of the room. Tuck blankets in firmly so they cannot become loose and cover your baby’s head and face during sleep.
