Let your LO sleep with a blanket? I don't. I'm too afraid she'll pull it up over her face! I just keep it warm and keep her well clothed.

Thanks to pattyandthemoos for my beautiful siggy (:

My son is 11 months and I still put him to sleep in a sleep sack. The doc says no blankets but I know some still do. I've been tempted a couple times since he is mobile now but I'd still worry so I haven't done it. The risk is not worth it IMO.

My 20 month old sleeps with his blankie. Its a small one and he is old enough to move around so he won't suffocate himself. Its pretty safe once they are able to crawl very well.

My boys sleep with a blanket every night, but kick it off after about 30 - 45 minutes

With my first she didnt get a blanket til she was almost a year I think but she has always just kicked it off after she fell asleep. Hannah on the other hand sleeps with a couple blankets. She usually is swaddled with her arms out and then she has her soft blanket that she snuggles with. She likes to pull it over her face even with her little bear blanket. That scares me so I check on her several times plus she sleeps in my room.

Ayden slept with a light receiving blanket. I tucked the sides of it under her body and only pulled it halfway up her chest. She never pulled it up over her face.

Chad sleeps with a bit of a heavier blanket because he doesn't like being cool too much. I tuck it into his sides, too, and I haven't had a problem with him pulling it up.

we live in Florida nad have our a/c on most of the time. I don't think we even turned our air on this winter. So, our place is fairly cool (80 degrees) year round.

Anyway, I do put a blanket on Henry. He's usually swaddled with a blanket over that.

I do put a blanket over Grace but she's always swaddled in her swaddle blanket and barely moves when she sleeps.

Gaby was good in that she liked being swaddled until she was 6 months old, so I usually swaddled her & put a woolen blanket over her - usually she'd wake up in the morning & would have kicked it off...

After she stopped being swaddled she'd sleep in the sheets as usual, and I would put the blankets on her, but always used 'breathable' blankets. She never had a quilt/bedspread while she was in her cot though

We always used a blanket, well when it was too hot we skipped it but I think that from when she was 3-4 months we started using it every night. It's a fairly light weight blanket. She never pulled it on herself but she did kick it off a lot. During the coldest months we put a thicker one in it's place but made sure to tuck that one under the mattress so she wouldnt be able to pull it. She usually crawls from underneath it. We've never had any scary situation with a blankie. Up until couple of months ago I would also check on her every 30-60 minutes (the intervals got longer as she got bigger) and she has always slept right next to me in the crib or in the bed with me (not sharing my blanket until recently due to safety concerns).

I swaddle Maddie and put a blanket on her as well. It still gets cold here at night and she hates to be cold. With Makenna I also swaddled and used a blanket. Now she sleeps with a blanket on her own.

I was wondering about this. My mother knitted them a couple of blankets. They were too small for them to be swaddled in them when they were born, but they'd be great as blankies. They have their crib toys which includes two loveys (a Pooh/Tigger miniature stuffed toy with a 5x5 inch blanket attached to it and a Gund dog blanket that's about a foot or foot and a half long). Cameron also has the giraffe blankie (shorter than the Gund dog), a stuffed penguin that he would not stop fussing for every time he went to bed (we gave in and let him have it. It's large and firm so it wouldn't disrupt his breathing) and a very small dachshund. Kiefer also has that same dachshund toy but nothing else. They both also have about 4 pacifiers laying in their crib for when they want to soothe themselves...it works perfectly!

So they don't need the blankets at this time, but I'd hate to waste a really nice gift. It is nice to know that they could use them if they wanted to. They are both VERY mobile in their cribs. I probably will give them the knitted blankets at some point soon. I think I'll also give Kiefer the giraffe. It seems so unfair that Cameron gets so many!!! He doesn't love his giraffe as much as the other toys.
