When can I give my LO a blanket? He is 4 months and can roll himself over and has great head control. I'm reluctant to give him a blanket for fear of SIDS or suffocation, but I feel like he has been getting cold at night. What can I do?

I've had a lot of parents use sleep sacks for the same fear of using a blanket and it works the same if not better in my opinion .

I've always used sleep sacks (still do) & my girls stay nice & warm. Some people put space heaters in their baby's rooms, but that makes me nervous, so I stick with the sleep sacks 😊

My baby has always slept with blankets since he was a newborn, it just depends how comfortable you feel giving them one! Some nights he wears the footed pjs but he loves sleeping with his ninja turtle blanket

Wearable blankets or sleep sacks, they make fleece ones for winter and cotton ones for warmer weather. Also fleece footed pajamas :)

My 4 MO has used a blanket since she was born. I started with a light receiving blankets. Now she uses a blanket that a friend of my knitted for her. I only pull it up to her mid-back.

If using a blanket make sure it's really light and thin. I use a fleasy one that's thin. It being fleasy makes it warmer and not heavy

I have used a blanket since day one. I just make sure it's tucked in under the mattress, and put it mid chest on her
