Satin Lining Blankies WARNING

This email from a very upset mother reveals a disturbing problem with some styles of SATIN LINED security blankies.

Loose Satin Lining Warning for Baby Security Blankets I have just returned from the hospital. My four month old almost suffocated on the satin side of [a security] blanket. She was taking a nap with it, and 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 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 do not help anyone find it!

Thanks,

Annette

Thank you, Annette, for bringing this to our attention.
 

Doctor's Advice

We know that tiny babies are not supposed to sleep with any plush animals or other items that could cause suffocation. But I am not sure how old a child has to be for such lovies to be safe in the crib. Sounds like this is something you need to find out from your Pediatrician.

We do sell many blankies with satin linings, so please use good judgment in purchasing these for a baby. Please check your child's blankie, if this is a concern for you, because of your child's age.

Possible Solution

Satin Lined Baby Security Blanket WITH Lining Stitched to AnimalIf the satin lining is completely loose, I would suggest you sew the middle of the satin to the upper blanket animal, as that is the way many of them are made. I also found one of our larger blankies was stitched in the middle, but, because of its size, the loose satin might still be a problem. So that type might need some additional quilting stitches to avoid this possibility.

 

A possibility this serious cannot be ignored, even though there has not been a recall for this type of blankie, as far as I know.
