Ceiling Fan with NB?


So I just had a thought and figured I'd ask you BTDT mommies. Might be a silly question but oh well. DH and I plan to keep DD in our room for the first few months (not co-sleeping, bed is way too small). We always sleep with the ceiling fan on high as we both burn up if we don't. Can we keep using the fan once LO arrives? Should I just add an extra layer to compensate?

I know you cant have a fan blowing directly on a new born but if its blowing air around the room it should be fine. I would get a thermometer and see the temp of the room with it on then adjust layers according to that.

Yes it's good for air circulation and white noise to keep a fan in the room.

At my prenatal class, they said that they actually recommend a fan in the room (although not pointed directly at baby). The teacher said that research is showing that air circulation reduces SIDS. I have no idea if this is true because I haven't looked up the research myself.
