Do you use a blanket or a sleeper blanket for your 6+ month baby?

Now that we are into fall what do you keep your little one warm with at night?

My son hates blankets..not sure how he would like a sleeper blanket/bunting? Not sure what they are really called.

  • My little guy sleeps in the fleece blanket sleepers. You can either purchase the ones that look like little bags or the little feetie suits. When it gets really cold, I put a onesie on underneath the sleeper.

  • We put DD in long sleeves and pants with one or two blankets. She is always kicking the covers off, but would cry b/c she would get cold so we put her in warmer jammies. That seems to be cutting down on her waking up at night due to being cold.

  • my 8 month old sleeps in either long sleeve/pant jammies or the sleepers with footies. always with a light blanket as well, although it's at the other end of the crib every morning.

  • We cosleep and my baby is a mini radiator like her father so naked with socks or tshirt and babylegs with socks. I'm the only one who sleeps with a blanket; when the two of them find the ambient temperature comfortable I'm freezeing :)

  • i used those sleepers with feel in them for my boys until they were about 5 - and they loved them - always bought their favorite characters - as well as sheets, pillowcases, bedspreads, pj's, etc. - i never had to worry about them kicking the blanket off off of them and getting cold during the night and it assured me a good night's rest - as i didn't have to keep getting up and checking on them to see if they were warm enough ...

  • My little guy (6 mos.) kicks of his blanket and then cries because he is cold so we bought two blanket sleepers. He loves to be warm so I still put a blanket over him and he doesn't wake up crying anymore.

  • Yeah, of course... I used blankets in the hospital... I never bought in to all this "they can't have a blanket" crap...

  • My son has been swaddled in a blanket while sleeping, since birth. He is 4 months now, and I have used a sleeper sac too.

  • we used footie pajamas (Carter's were the best) and a blanket for all of our kids...basically from birth.  We only ever had 2 of those sleep sack things and they were pink so only the girls used them.  All 5 were swaddled in a blanket (a homemade quilt that belonged to my husband when he was a baby) from the time they were born.  They all left the hospital wrapped in it and used it for at least their first year.

  • When we first brouhgt my daughter home, we used a swaddler, Around the time of her turning 2-3 months old, she hated the swaddler, so she graduated to footie pjs :) Carters are the best :)

    The only brob I had with the fottie pjs is that some of them snap up the leg, and when I would get up in the mornings my daughter would already have her legs out of them :)
