LEARN WHAT IS SAFE TO PUT IN YOUR CHILD'S CRIB.
Is it ok for my baby sleep with a blanket in the night?If a child is under 12 weeks old, blankets should stay out of the crib--whether your infant is resting or playing. That's because blankets may boost the potential of smothering, suffocation, or sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). The identical rule applies to any other soft items, comforters, bumper pads, baby blankets, sheepskins, soft toys, along with cushions. In short, the one thing which needs to be at the crib at night is your son or daughter.If you're a new parent, you most likely have plenty of questions about your child's sleep. When should she start snoozing through the night? Without your having to be in the area with her will she fall asleep?It's totally normal to stress without a comfy blanket, infants will get chilly at night and won't have the sleep they need, but babies can find the appropriate level of heat out of what they wear to bed independently. Keep your child's room in a comfortable temperature (around 70 to 72 degrees) and groom him no more than one additional layer than you'd wear. Soft fabrics that breathe, such as cotton, should match your child and work well. Swaddles, footie pajamas, and sleep sacks are popular options. Then check in on your tot to make sure that he isn't getting too hot or cold. Your baby may be too warm if his torso feels hot, his face is red, he's breathing and/or he is sweating. He may be too chilly, if your baby's torso feels cool.However, in case you are wondering what you could do to keep your child safe at night, you are able to cross that question off your list.
