When is a blanket safe in the crib?

Posted by   + Show Post
Not a thick one but a nice baby size sort one. DD loves hers and I sneak it away she falls asleep but when is she in the clear to sleep with it all night?

She's 6 months now and can move theblanker around pretty good.

I was told and follow the rule of when they can move their head around freely and roll over they can have one. My youngest is just about 8 months and we are just starting to give her one that doesn't zip up

My boys always had blankets but I started with crochet ones so they could breathe through them.

At a few months old, when they were moving around okay. I only used the light crocheted ones with the holes, though. I didn't give them pillows until after 18 months or so, though. They're 2.5 and 19 months now and they both love their pillow and blanket.

Same here


Quoting la_bella_vita:

 I've always given my kid's blankets from birth on.

I have put one in the crib since DD was a day old. When she was a newborn, I would put it no higher than her waist and always tucked it under her.
