Who could forget Linus, that precocious Peanuts comic strip character who had a particular fondness for a ratty, blue blanket and was the origin for the term “security blanket”?

The Kiddopotamus Huggacub Luxe Security Blanket is the perfect baby gift for your favorite little one and sure to be loved for many years.

For those that worry that an emotional dependence on a piece of fabric is not healthy, I say no way! Security blankets give over-stimulated children an opportunity to self-sooth and also provide a sense of familiarity in new situations. Don’t worry; no child has ever gone off to college with a teddy bear decorated “lovie” tucked in his book bag.

The Huggacub Lux Security Blanket is available in pink, pale blue or ivory fashioned from super soft velour fabric with ultra smooth satin trimming. The tactile contrast between the plush velour and the slippery satin will keep little fingers busy as they go down for nap or ride in the stroller.

kiddopotamus-huggacub-luxe-security-blanketHaving a security blanket or “lovie” creates a sweet ritual for baby that communicates that they are okay, everything is right with their world and it is time to quiet down.

A wise mom once told me to buy at least one spare to replace a beloved security blanket in the event that it was lost or just temporarily out of commission due to being laundered.

This security blanket is affordably priced from $9.99  so it and makes stocking up on a few a complete no-brainer.

The manufacturer recommends washing in cold and hanging to air dry.

Users of this product have reported that air drying process takes several hours and the blanket remains plush looking, even after many washings.

The idea of an electric blanket appeals to many for several reasons ranging from jumping into a pre-warmed bed on a cold night to saving money by not running the furnace to heat the entire house all night.

However with media attention focused on the safety issues of electric blankets, such as fire or burn hazards and harmful electromagnetic radiation, many potential users are concerned about a possible danger.

The Soft Heat Electric Warming Blanket is marketed as the “The World’s Safest” Heated Warming Blanket and is a high-quality product even the most anxious of worry-warts will not loose sleep over.

As the only heated blanket in the United States certified by the Underwriters Laboratory (UL) as safe under 25 volts, Soft Heat Blankets use a special Safe-n-Warm technology to covert 120 volts AC into less that 14 – 18 volts DC.A UL rating is important in assessing the safety of a product, so rest assured that your well being is priority number one with this great product.

Made of super soft polyester, this Soft Heat blanket is snuggly to the touch and warms up to one of 11 heat settings within 15 minutes. The micro wires that conduct the heating are so small and unobtrusive that at first glance you may never realize this is an electric blanket.

I also love the 10-hour automatic shut-off feature (I’m forgetful in the morning) and the auto dimming light on the computerized controller (I sleep best in total darkness!).

The Twin and Full size blankets have one controller and the King and Queen size blankets have two controllers for the individualized sleep preferences of couples.

Easy to take care of, Soft Heat Blankets can be laundered in your household washing machine and tumbled dry without any negative affects.

Available in quite a palette of calming colors, you are sure to find a tone to go with your bedding linens.

Some users have reported that they didn’t get full coverage on their oversized, pillow-top style beds, so you may want to take exact measurements before ordering.

Protect a Bed Queen Size

Protect a Bed Queen Size

Today’s mattresses are quite an investment, running into the thousands of dollars. The Protect A Bed Queen Mattress Cover
is a “full-service” pad that combines the features of dust mite and bacteria protection and waterproofing into one product.

This mattress cover is a seemingly appropriate choice for consumers who are willing to make a fairly pricey purchase to protect an even bigger monetary outlay in their expensive bedding.

Unlike vinyl mattress covers, this cover is “quiet” and doesn’t have the tell-tale crinkly noise of a plastic covering. Additionally, unlike hot and sweaty vinyl, the 100% natural cotton top of this pad provides a cooler surface on which to rest through the night.

The underside features a towel-like backing coated in Polyurethane film that is alleged to repel up to 2 pints of liquid such as urine, sweat or spilled drinks.

The top of the Queen-sized mattress cover measures 60-inches by 80-inches, standard to the industry. The side skirting is 18-inches deep and is made of a 50/50 cotton and poly-blend that stretches to fit even the thickest of pillow-top mattresses.

The majority of users seem to be happy with this sizeable purchase, but a handful have pejoratively complained that the Protect A Bed Mattress Cover is not waterproof at all, although the manufacturer claims that the polyurethane film backing the pad should maintain it’s integrity through at least 200 laundry cycles.

The manufacturer recommends washing before use to remove fabric sizing and to not bleach, iron or dry clean this product. Failure to follow these instructions may lessen the allergy and waterproofing properties of the mattress pad.

Embroidered Receiving Blanket

Embroidered Receiving Blanket

If you are looking for a functional baby gift that is fashionable and eco-friendly, the American Baby Company Organic Embroidered Receiving Blanket in Mocha is a find.

Designed with snuggling in mind, this sweet blanket if crafted out of 100% organic cotton interlock that is safe and soft against the delicate skin of a newborn. Organic cotton farmed free of pesticides from cotton plants that have not been genetically modified in any way.

Measuring 30” x 40” inches, this receiving blanket is just the right size for napping, bringing along in the car and even using as a coverlet for nursing. The fabric is subtle and soothing; it just may become a little one’s favourite “lovie”. Available at a very reasonable price, it would be a great idea to buy a spare or two to have on hand if the other becomes lost or is being laundered.

The color is described as Mocha, but is definitely not a dark brown; instead more of a lighter café au lait tone. A darling little teddy bear with tan accents is embroidered into the corner making it perfect for both little boys and little girls. This blanket would look great with a neutral toned outfit for a boy or with an ensemble of light pinks paired with brown that are so trendy for girls today.

The manufacturer recommends washing on the gentle cycle in cold water with similar colors and tumbling dry on low. Launder with a mild detergent (Dreft has such a nice baby smell!) and do not use bleach.

This sounds like a product I would be very happy with.

ChillowPlus DeluxeMade to fit inside standard pillow cases, the ChillowPlus Deluxe Cooling Insert uses SoothSoft technology with water to absorb and then dissipate heat back in to the air.

The effect is a dry, natural cooling that can be used to comfort any number of aches and pains, including but not limited to: hot flashes, headaches, sunburns, fevers, back pain, sore feet, restless leg syndrome, chemotherapy and fibromyalgia.

Unlike typical cold packs, the ChillowPlus is dry, not frozen and uses technology that’s non-toxic, requires no power and doesn’t contain a gel.

Consumers who reviewed this product online were very pleased with the performance from the cooling insert and the low price, which is generally under $40. Because the product can continuously be reused, most customers felt like it was a good buy.

A lot of customers who bought the product and reviewed it on websites say that they got the ChillowPlus Deluxe Cooling Insert to avoid hot flushes in the middle of the night and were satisfied with the result.

While the product was made to go in a pillow case, some people found that sleeping with it under their head was uncomfortable and too cold, so they moved it around be near their feet or on their backs and found that worked just as well.

Although one customer complained that the product was difficult to use, because they had to fill it with just the amount of water in order for it to be comfortable while most customers did not experience any difficulty with this.

Those who purchased the product for muscle pain or body aches said that it didn’t offer as much comfort as a colder ice pack, so our conclusion is that the ChillowPlus is probably ideal for those who wish to remain comfortable throughout the night and avoid hot flashes, during menopause or when having chemotherapy but possibly not the best ice pack for everyday aches and pains.
