Baby Blankets

My granddaughter just had a new baby boy and some of her shower gifts were baby blankets. When her first baby was expected, I was just sure she was going to have a girl. So I thought baby girl blankets were the gift to get because surely, I didn't want to get blue ones which would be for a boy. I knew I was taking a chance but I was right and she had a girl. Baby blankets have been used for as long as I can remember and I am sure they were used way back before that. Have you ever looked up blanket history? It is really quite interesting. Some things that I would have called blankets are really sheets and vice versa. I know though that baby blankets are one of the best things every new mother should have to wrap her new baby in.
