I have heard of some people using this quilt as a wall hanging but i was wondering if anyones baby sleeps with it and if not, why not? I am expecting my first, so this is all new to me .

The boys both used their comforters (starting at 6 months) from their bedding set.
DD hasn't used her quilt that came with her set. It's in her little doll cradle now, lol. I don't know why I haven't used it, I just use light layering blankets on her and her pink silky she loves.
I will be using the quilt for her toddler bed though.

When babies are new & so little, to me it seems like the comforters & quilts are just so HUGE! Really, a receiving or thermal blanket works better, IMO. When they get older then it's fun to use the comforter/quilt.

I use it as a playmat for her or under her when she sleeps (to add a bit of padding) but not over her. I think it is too big and bulky to be used for that purpose and I would worry about her in it. I use lighter and smaller blankets on her sometimes or I just dress her more warmly if need be. There are some instances where blankets have been a hazard to babies so if I use one I usually only use it on her lower half to be safe.

I never used mine. It just was really thick, and by the time they were big enough to use it, they had already grown attached to their blankie.

I understand that quilts in the crib are a SIDS hazard for newborns (although fine after 1 year). I plan to hang mine on the wall with wall clips.

Brinlee's is used as a wall hanging, on her quilt rack. I see Brinlee's as more of a decoration, not a comforter.... but she uses a different blanket to cover up with.

My son started using his at about 6 months. Before that I used crocheted baby blankets and dressed him warmly. I was too scared to use the big comforter.

I'll probably do the same with this baby.

She hasn't but will be soon (when it gets colder out). When she was just born I was worried she'd pull it over her face or something, then summer came and it was too hot.

Until they are older and can sit up, etc. it's safer just to use blanket sleepers,sleep sacks, or light recieving blankets to cover them up when they sleep
With DD I used to spread the quilt out on the floor so she wouldn't have to lay on the scratchy carpet. You can also use it in cold weather to put over the stroller.

I have always used the crib quilt over the stroller and carseat when going out. They only used it to actually play on when in the floor. At a year old or when they went to the toddler bed i let them use it on their own bed.

*bump* Great topic!

Yeah, I think the comforters are way to big for baby for the first year. I think they're perfect as a decoration in the nursery, to lay on the floor for baby's playtime, and/or as a stroller blanket.

Now, that my kids are older, they could use their nursery comforters. But, I wash their blankets on a weekly basis. If I did that to their comforters, they'd get all faded. I like them as a decoration.
Thank-you GraysMama for my beautiful siggy!
