Baby M Fri, December 12th
My 7 month old sleeps alone in her crib .. I'm terrified of SIDS so I refuse to give her a blanket especially because she likes to pull it over her head and hides ... She absolutely hates swaddles because she doesn't like her arms and legs being restrained .. Any ideas of what I can do to keep her warm?

We use footie pajamas that are nice and warm. You can also try a sleep sack :)

My son is 8 months old and we give him a light weigh blanket that he can breath through.

Thick warm sleeper. If I'm not mistaken SIDS shouldn't be a concern after 4 months.

I agree with Coryn. A sleep sack or fleece footie jammies

My baby is 8 months old and ever since she was like 2 or 3 months old she would always cover her face. What I did was pull it off her nose when she's sleeping or I'd give her one of her blankets that were hand made because they have lots of holes in them

We do fleece pajamas & a fleece Halo sleep sack. We've been using the sleep sacks since our girls were 3 months & they make them to a size 5T so I'm planning ok using them until they start staying under a blanket

Past six months the chance of SIDS gets significantly lower. If you are concerned especially it being just do warm pjs and a small heater in the room :).

You can always bump up the heat a bit at night! Or if you wanted to use a blankie since your LO likes them so much, Aden+Anais makes really nice bamboo swaddle blankets that are really lightweight. My LO takes naps with them over his face. It's the only way he sleeps! They are very breathable. Or use a light blanket with holes. But in a warm house with warm footie pajamas, your LO should stay plenty warm. :)

Sleep sacks! Just zip her up (with or with out arms in) and she'll be toasty warm. I always did a long sleeve onsie underneath, bc my LO always wanted her arms out, too.

Just do warm pjs. Last night was super cold so my daughter had on a onesie socks and long sleeve thick winter footsie jamas. She was toasty.

The risk of your child getting sids at 7 months is very low. If your baby can roll over an lift her head on her own then she is perfectly fine. Give the baby a blanket. #mother of 3

I put a onesie on and on top of that i put on nice comfy footsie pajamas. My son gets so warm that he actually kicks his little blanket off of him
