Mylar infant thermal blanket

Last Update: December 21, 2013

This mylar blanket is sized especially for infants and includes the miniature hood.  This is meant for single use and costs about $5 US.  It is sterile and made of metalized polyester film.  Many rescue kits include adult sized blankets made of the same material.  The infant bunting is listed in some U.S. military catalogs but it is not clear why (or if) these are used in lower-income settings or how widely available they are.  We'd be interested in comments.
