There simply cannot be a better substitute than thermal or electric blankets for keeping the bed of little babies warm and cozy during very cold winter nights. Baby electric or thermal blanket are always warm because they are fitted with integrated electrical heating system and are normally kept above the topmost bed sheet. A variation of the electric blanket is the electric mattress pad. The electric mattress is kept beneath the bottom bed sheet.
In all cold places that experience snowfall frequently, electric
blankets are a must-have household item not only for infants and kids
but also adults. The electric blanket or mattress is normally equipped
with a control unit which can be used to adjust the amount of heat
produced. Electric or thermal heating blankets for large size beds have
heat control panels on either sides of the bed.
Large size electric blankets can be used for both pre-heating the bed
before using it and keeping the occupant warm while he /she is in bed.
However, it is very important that people buy thermal or electric
blankets of only those companies which are reliable. Another equally
important aspect about electric blankets and mattress is that they
should not be over-used. One need to be extra careful while making
babies sleep or lie on electric heating blankets.
