My son received a little blue & white striped zebra puffalump as a shower gift. He had to have "puffy" to go to sleep at night. We forgot puffy at Grandma's, so bought another one. But I was careful to only let him have one at a time!

"What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?"

Satin Lining Warning

This mother's email reveals a disturbing problem with the design of some satin lined blankies.

I have just returned from the hospital. My four month old almost suffocated on the satin side of this blanket. She was taking a nap with it. When she woke up she pulled it over her head and sucked on the satin side and got it wet. It then stuck to her face.

The satin dot side and fuzzy side are not quilted together. We had to give CPR, and it was about 30 minutes before she could breath normally.

It is a beautiful blanket, and was her favorite, too. I found your web site while looking for the manufacturer of this blanket.

So please don't help anyone find it!


Suffocation Prevention

I know that tiny babies should not sleep with any plush animals or other items that could cause suffocation. The Consumer Product Safety Commission uses the slogan Bare is Best. But I'm not sure how old a child has to be for such lovies to be safe in the bed. Sounds like this is something you need to ask your Pediatrician.

As far as I know, the Blankets and Beyond Minky Dots style blankie Annette's baby had was not recalled. But they are not the only company that makes this type. Walmart also sells a blankie like this. This is a serious possibility that you should not ignore.

I made an effort to inspect all the satin lined blankies that we have in stock. I found several with totally loose satin linings. So I added a link to this warning to each blankie with a loose satin lining. The price and quality of the blankies varied, so I can't suggest a brand to avoid.

What I would suggest is that you check your child's blankie, if this is a concern for you because of your child's age.

Possible Fix for Satin Lined Blankies

If the satin lining is loose, you could sew the middle of the satin to the upper blanket animal. Many companies stitch the middle of the lining to the underside of the animal head.

One of our larger blankies has stitching in the middle. But, because of its size, the loose satin might still be a problem. So that one might need some additional quilting stitches to avoid this possibility.
