  • I think she is too young. You should do more research. You can put her in warmer pajamas or sleep sacs. Don't ever trust your baby's life to cm.

  • DD slept with a blanket until she could pull it over her head, than we took a break from it and I started to put the blanket back on her when she was...over a year old. It depends on your child. I know some moms just won't do it until their child is much older.
