I don't know what they are called in English. But we call these doudou's
They are little blankets with a high cuddliness factor. Usually with an option to attach a pacifier.

They are presents for resp. a colleague's new baby and my best friends new baby
Once they are born they will be embroidered with the name and birthdate and then they are done.
They are made of some velvety fabric (nice and soft) and a sleek fabric to counter. Both wings and blanket are stuffed with fiberfill. They are machine washable at high temperature (for hygiene) and the wings make crackling sounds like a potato-chips bag for extra fun.
