Baby Talk: Blankets Go High-Tech

Remember your baby blanket? Soft, cuddly, and, well, probably not all that sanitary? Yeah, that’s not the kind of thing you want to pass on to your little one. Blankets these days tout benefits we couldn’t have even imagined years ago. Like germ-fighting fibers. Yes, really. Read on.

Silver is for more than necklaces.
99.9% pure silver thread. That’s the secret behind our newest baby-gear crush – called, fittingly, Forever Safe™ Baby Bedding. Silver is (apparently) naturally antimicrobial. Translation: germs steer clear.

Reference check? Approved.
The bedding boasts the exact same technology used to reduce infections in health-care settings and keep NASA astronauts healthy in outer space. So let’s just say its references are good.

Don’t worry, it’s still soft.
Fabrics like cotton jersey knit and peached fleece keep this teched-out gear cuddly. (Promise we won’t judge if you get one for yourself, too.)

Our Pamper Them: Gifts for the Littlest Ones Boutique opens Thursday, October 3, at 11AM ET.
