Two, to, too.
Too many. Keep them and be grateful. They'll come in handy, less laundry when your baby pukes, pees, has a blow out.
jencnh:I don't know if you can have too many blankets! Having lots of blankets comes in handy...but if you feel the need, return the ones not handmade or donate some to a women's shelter. They'd love a nice blanket for their little ones!
cinderin:I am a FTM. How many are too many?
I can imagine using more than you think you would - on floor for tummy time, nursing cover, over infant carrier on cold days, blanket for baby in infant carrier/stroller.....
If you really have too many, donating or re-gifting would be good options. Maybe return any that can be returned and then keep the handmade ones? I know my mom kept all my handmade blankets and they're definitely a welcome gift now that I'm pregnant.
We ended up with 5 handmade blankets, 12 receiving blankets, 3 thermal blankets, and 3 fleece blankets. We've used every.single.one.
I don't think you can have too many blankets, but if you think you do have too many, do as PPs said and donate a few to a shelter.
We received a lot as well. We use receiving blankets to lay LO down on so didn't really have a use for the 12+ we got. I returned a handful and plan on regifting one or two.
"Too many" for us was that they didn't fit into DDs dresser drawer that was earmarked for blankets. Everyone's definition of "too many" is different, though.
I had 3 dresser drawers full!
We used every single one!
You'll like some better for on the go, in the stroller, in the carseat, for breastfeeding covering, for the boppy, for summer, for winter, for the floor, for the bed as the baby gets older.
