    when did you let your LO sleep with a blanket? Karinna is 15 months old and she has been waking up the last couple mornings will cold legs and feet even though she has long footed jambes on at night. My OH thinks we should give her a blankie at night but I'm so paranoid still.

    When did you let your little one sleep with one? :crib:

    I haven't yet but that's because she's in a sleeping bag. You could try a really breathable one like those knitted ones with the big holes (I don't know what to call them :dohh:).

    My DS has slept with a blanket since he outgrew his last seeping bag at around 10/11 months. Its a fleecy one.

    I've also given him a duvet but he just kicks it off so given up on that for now :dohh:

    Zachary was 13 months when he got a blanket as that's when he stopped using a sleeping bag.

    He has a tight-weaved organic cotton cellular blanket in his cotbed and an organic lambswool duvet too. I drape the blanket over the side of the cotbed and he tugs it off and wraps himself in it when he first goes to bed lol. It usually gets kicked off within 5 minutes, so when he's asleep I go in and cover him.

    My LO doesn't for night time as she's in a sleeping bag, but for nap time she does have a cellular blanket instead.

    My LO has had the same cellular blanket for when she sleeps since she was born. She has extra blankets and a quilt that are there if she needs them now but mostly she just has her cellular blanket x

    Esther has always had a blanket. In the summer a cotton cellular one and in the winter at least 2 wool blankets. Once she was over 12 months we started using a duvet.

    Kelana gets a fleece sleep sac AND a down duvet in her crib (we don't heat the bedroom and it's below zero here). When she wakes, she comes into bed with me...I take the sleep sac off, but she goes under my duvet. She is 15mths old tomorrow.

    My LO refuses to sleep with a blanket. I've tried for naps but she always just kicks it off! She has a sleep sack right now but she's growing out of it fast! Going to have to think of other ways to keep her warm until she leaves the blanket alone!

    Madden's had a duvet since just after 10 months, he'd sleep fine in bed with me with mine but I work shifts so he can't sleep with me all the time and my poor mum works too so can't afford to get up 4 times a night with him! Since he's had his duvet he wakes once a night! I've tucked the end of the duvet under the mattress so it can't ride up
