  • Your fine relax. Turn the temp down or don't use it.

  • i dont think a heating blanket will raise your body temp high enough to do damage without you waking up because of it. you baby is probably fine. i wouldn't use the blanket anymore though, better to be safe.

  • The baby should be fine. :) If he or she wasn't I'm sure the doctor would tell you.

  • You're probably fine, but I would stop using it.
