When is it safe for baby to sleep with a blanket?

Physical mobility: When a kid can pull to stand in his/her crib, the chance they would suffocate in bed linen is negligible. Before then, i would consider it an invitation for trouble. Removing swaddling blankets, which are meant to help a newborn settle, should be accomplished before a month of age. ...Read more

When is it safe for my baby to sleep with a blanket?

After he's a baby: I recommend going without for as long as possible. Your baby doesn't need a blanket. It has been recommended to not use a blanket until 12 months of age because at 12 months the risk of sids is greatly diminished. I recommend waiting until closer to 2 years old if you want to introduce a blanket into the bed. ...Read more

Loaded question: Why do you ask? If an 80+ year old wanted to take his/her baby blanket with them to bed i wouldn't care or stop them. Kids usually give up these comfort things when they begin to sense peer pressure at school age.I do not recommend taking them from the child, ever! a kid should be provided his/her own space to decide what comforts them.Adults can be creative in finding ways for kid to give it up. ...Read more

6 months: The risk of SIDS greatly drops around six months. It is ok to sleep with a blanky at this time. I'd still stick with a flat, silky kind of blanket, nothing super fluffy. You can try tucking it in on the sides of the crib at his chest level. ...Read more

My 4 weeks baby was sleeping with us in our bed covered under our blanket he was sweating when he woke up, how could it harm his skin or health?

My 4 weeks baby was sleeping with us in our bed covered under our blanket he was sweating when he woke up, how could it harm his skin or health?

I agree. Put him on: His back in his crib for naps & nighttime to reduce the risk of sids. If you have a consistent bedtime & routine of rocking, nursing, reading & wiping out his mouth after the last feed, then put him in his crib drowsy, but awake, he'll learn to self calm for sleep. This increases his chances of consolidating sleep by 4 mos. & prevents developmental night-crying at or after 6 mos. ...Read more

Yes but observe: If she is acting normally, active and playful, let her sleep on her usual nap/ bed time but observe closely in the first 24-48 hours for increased sleepiness, irritability and/or any other symptoms like vomitting. If you any of these developed take her to the pediatrician to be checked. ...Read more

My 6 month old baby is a very noisy sleeper he makes high pitch sounds he is breathing very well but he's been like this since born only in deep sleep?

Infant sleep: Hello. Since it is very hard to diagnose specific problems via this site, it is best to review any airway concern you may have with your pediatrician. Try to record the sounds your child sounds like. This can be very helpful for your doctor or a pediatric ENT specialist to confirm the etiology for the sounds. An airway evaluation may also be recommended. ...Read more
