  • Cats are very dangerous to babies they can cause suffocation! Due to the factor that they smell the milk on the baby's breath and try to get into there face and lick at there mouth etc.... As for the cat factor of life put the cat in another room or maybe get a cat carrier to keep the cat in while the child sleeps on the floor.

  • No! The cat may not intentionally hurt the baby, but could suffocate her or pass along illnesses. And I hope you are not letting her SLEEP with a blanket either. Read up on SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.) Blankets are a no-no.

  • And HITTING your cat doesn't seem to be the way to go either, especially if it keeps coming back. Try closing the door.

  • NO NO NO....When my nephew was born (6 yrs ago) we had a very gentle and sweet cat in the home.... I walked into his room because I heard weird gasps on his baby monitor and what I saw was my cats whole head in his mouth...she was literally taking his breath away, I heard its normal for cats to do that, so I wouldn't risk it.

  • Our cat will sleep rightnext to my baby when he is in our bed. It's harmless, for nothing bad has ever come of it. I am right there too. It's cute. In the CRIB-NOOOOO.
