    Default So I have a question?

    I just took a look at Michi's thread of the new baby (congrats by the way!) and there is something I have always wondered. Why does every hopital have that same receiving blankets? The one with the pink and blue stripes. Is there a reason for this? You would think different places would vary. I don't know just the weird thought of the day lol.

    Oh my gosh - I have wondered the same thing! My daughter had those same digs (hat and blanket) when she was born. I am drawing a blank on my son's though. I know he had the hat, but I can't remember his blanket. lol

    I've TOTALLY thought the exact same thing! Or I think it every single time I see a pic of a newborn. It's every baby, all over the country and it's like, it hasn't changed in YEARS. My sisters are now 17 and 18 and they had the exact same blankets as my niece that is 1!

    There must be some newborn blankie impresario or something that has warehouses full of these things all across the US, just making serious bank off newborns' blanket needs.

    SO WEIRD!

    I hadn't ever thought about it, but I did a quick google search. From what I can find, it sounds like the suppliers are few and they aren't going to update something that works just fine. LOL I also found something that talked about how many hospitals are all part of a bigger network of hospitals and all those hospitals will contract from the same place.

    I also noticed that the hospital gowns are all the exact same pattern too!!

    Around here we have that same hat but a different blanket with little animal characters on it. I have seen it at a lot of different hospitals too!

    I'd never thought of it either, especially since I've never had a baby. But I just hopped onto FB to look at my sister's pics. Yep, all 3 nephews had that same hat and blanket!
