Scarves are great for keeping us warm and are great at adding colour and flare to our wardrobe. They add life to old outfits and help make those seasonal transitions. Scarves are also wonderful for Moms and babies. They have so many more uses other than warmth and fashion.
Scarves to Protect your Baby
When the sun is shining we all love to get out and soak up some vitamin D. Moms with new babies are no exception. A scarf can start out worn around your neck and when necessary they can provide protection from the sun. Simply drape your scarf over the top of your baby’s stroller and you have instant shade and protection from the sun’s harmful rays.
Scarves Provide Warmth for your Baby
On those chilly days your scarf can also become an additional blanket for your baby. Women’s pashminas are wonderful for this because they are quite large and are typically made of silk blends which are soft against the skin.
Scarves Become a Privacy Blanket
For moms who are breast feeding, a large silk scarf can be draped over your chest when breast feeding and instantly become a privacy blanket. Scarves are great because they add glam to your look and easily function as a baby accessory when needed. No need to add extra bulk to your diaper bag.
Scarves are fun, functional and versatile. Not only will you look like a trendy new mom but you will have a valuable tool wrapped around your neck that’s ready to handle small baby emergencies like those listed above. The best scarves are pashminas due to their size. Pashminas come in a variety of colours and can be worn around the neck or draped over your shoulders.
