What is "blanket trianing"?

I was reading a post in one of my groups and it was about the Diggar family. They said she "blanket trains" the babies. What is that?

  • It is child abuse as far as I'm concerned. People 'train' a baby to stay within the confines of their blanket by spanking the child or hitting the edge of the blanket. It is either physical abuse or mental abuse either way.

  • I THINK it is training your child to stay in one area of the house to play. You train them to play on the blanket and don't use a playpen. I think!

  • Blanket training, lmao! Our boys were all over the place, we just baby proofed the entire house and they could explore all over safely. That's crazy to expect a curious baby to stay on a blanket. If that's what it means....

  • Child abuse? Seriously? You don't have to spank your child to train the to stay somewhere. And it doesn't mean they are never allowed off the blanket. You can have them play on the blanket while you get work done in the rest of the house. I guess using a playpen is child abuse too! I had to train my monkey child not to climb out of the playpen.
