What stroller blanket should you consider getting for your twins? We break down the stroller blanket scoop, complete with our top 10 list for you!
If you are just now delving into the wonderful world of newborn twin gear, you might be wondering what some of these items actually are. You might be wondering if they actually serve a purpose or if you should skip some of them altogether. Stroller blankets may be at the top of this list.
What is a stroller blanket?
A stroller blanket is a blanket that is often a bit smaller than a typical baby blanket. This is so it is easy to bring with you out of the house. They are a great way to keep your twins warm on the go. Though they can vary a bit in size, a standard would be about 30 by 40 inches.
Some stroller blankets are actually made to resemble sleeping bags for infants. These can be great in colder climates to keep your babies warm and snuggly, and what cold climate parent isn’t worried about that?

Do my twins need a stroller blanket?
If you live in a cold climate the answer here is yes! These magical covers will keep your babies nice and cozy without worry that they will drop their blanket on the dirty group in the middle of a walk.
If I’m being honest, the convenience of a stroller blanket and the super cute patterns kind of make me wish I could go back in time to get some, even being a desert mama!
How many stroller blankets do I need?
You probably want to have at least 2 for each baby. And if you are having a fall or winter baby, you should definitely invest in the plush, sleeping bag type of stroller blanket for each baby.
What are receiving blankets for?
You might be wondering what receiving blankets are for if they aren’t intended to be used while out and about. It is true, that their lightweight is great for travel. However, consider the harsh winter months and how little a receiving blanket will do to protect your twinnies from the cold. This is where a stroller blanket is handy to have around.
What type of blanket is best for baby?
What type of blanket you need depends largely on your climate. My children were all born and raised in the desert. Receiving blanket and small cotton blankets were all we needed.
In most areas, that won’t do. You probably need a good variety of cotton and wool blankets. You should have big, plush stroller blankets, receiving blankets, and tummy time blankets.
