I received a number of small afghans - lightweight knitted or crocheted baby blankets - when I recently had my little girl. I've been having a hard time keeping her happily swaddled in swaddling blankets, and her sleep sac with Velcro, while it keeps her bundled tightly for hours, also leaves her a hot sweaty mess...it's in the 60's & 70's here. (though we try to maintain a reasonable house temperature). The thing is, I've put her down a few times swaddled in one of her afghans and she's slept like a charm. Are these the "fluffly" blankets that doctors warn us about as choking hazards? Her swaddling blankets seem to have posed more of a problem for me - she squirms and gets them up over her head while they're still tight!
Thanks for your opinions! :D
