  • I wouldn't let your baby do that cuz they could inhale the fur.

  • no dont because it is proven that cat hair does cause colic along with other things so i wouldnt let the cat any where near him as we had to get rid of our cat

  • I don't think that is a smart thing to do. It is one thing if your baby is napping on your lap, and is a bit older (6months+) and your kitty is snuggling on your lap as well and spills over your baby's legs. It is cute and ultra snuggly. My kitty does this sometimes. But keep the cat well away from the baby's face. You don't want her to get fur in her eyes, nose, and mouth. It is very uncomfortable.

  • I have 2 cats indoors but they don't sleep with her. It can cause allergies when they're that small.

  • Depends on the age. My cats sleep cuddled against my toddler's back. But only when she isn't facing them.

  • No. I wouldn't want him to get too comfortable b/c as he gets older the cat may not be as accomidating (ie pulling tall does not = calm cat!). My dog is not a big fan of my daughter laying on him, but she got away with more when she was younger. No he'll take off!
