We were told from day one that blankets couldn’t go in the crib for safety reasons. Of course, if Lily was swaddled in a smaller receiving blanket, than that was ok.
The sad thing is, we got lots of nice blankets for shower gifts and even home-made ones! They’ve been used, but never for sleeping.
So when is it ok to put a blanket in the crib?
Lily is old enough, and smart enough, that a blanket shouldn’t cause any safety issues. At least I don’t think so. If she doesn’t want it, she’d just toss it out of the crib. Of course, then she’d wake us up to come get it so she could do it again. 😉
As it gets colder out, we want to make sure she’s warm and comfortable. We want to start covering her up, but don’t know when is the right time to do that.
When did you start putting a blanket on your baby?
