hi, i got a quilt with my daughters bed set when she was first born, but it says from 12 months... is anyone else using a quilt in the cots? mine is not as thick as a quilt, but its thicker than a blanket. also are you still using baby grows? or using proper pjs now ?

I bought my quilt in Ikea and it is a cot quilt, I have to say i never even checked the label but Adam has been using it since about 7 months, I use a babygro as Adam has a habit of climbing out his duvet and down to the bottom of the cot and laying upside down so he needs it to keep warm!! although i still get paranoid he will get cold!! (I don put him back in lol!!)

I had my daughter in a cradle at the foot of my bed up until yesterday (we moved her to a crib) She is not rolling over yet, so I would tuck a lightweight blanket in around her chest, now that she is in a crib with more space to move, even though she still doesnt roll, I have switched to using a sleepsack at night, and a blanket just for naps (she only naps for 35-45 minutes.

We've got blankets in the crib and my son wears sleepers because they cover his feet and I don't want him to get cold. In the summer, we'll probably upgrade to 2-piece pjs.

My daughter wears 2 piece PJ's and she is currently using a summer sleep sack as it's still pretty warm here. She moves around a lot during the night so blankets never stay on her but I have a quilt that is fitted at the bottom so will try that when it gets colder since she seems to get a bit twisted up in her sleep sack and I think she likes being able to kick her legs about.

All 5 of my kids have used the blankets that came with the crib sets from the time they were born. I just always made sure the bottom end was tucked in nice and tight to where it couldn't get in their faces. I stopped using gowns on my children once their umbilical cords fell off, and started putting them in regular sleepers.

My 10 month old has been sleeping in PJs (both footed zip ups/snaps and two pieces) since he was born and with a fleece/polyester blanket since 4 months old. He's had a pillow since 8 months and has ALWAYS had stuffed animals in his crib. I think babies are just fine to have blankets and pillows once they are rolling over and over and over and/or mobile. G likes his face stuffed in the corner of the crib next to the bumper, his pillow and his stuffed animals. Comfort I guess. I've never really worried about blankets and such in the bed after he was ending up at the opposite end of the crib.

My kids both slept in the footed pajamas and then the ones without and I simply put socks on them if I thought it would be a chilly night. I am one(maybe because I am older?) to have an aversion to the grow bags as children need to be able to function in sleep in order to be comfortable and grow. While I know they say it does allow them to grow, our kids did just fine in PJs. My granddaughter is 10 months and would go nuts if she were put in a bag-plus I have a safety issue with those who use them for ambulatory kiddos. If they get caught and lose their balance, they can bump their head or knock out growing teeth. Not a good scenario to me.

My granddaughter is tucked in under her quilt that came with her set but that wasn't until a couple months ago. Until then she wore footed PJs and we kept the room the right temp so she would be comfortable and a lightweight blanket. Now she loves going barefoot (which is good for balance and foot growth) and is learning to walk.

This may sound silly but... what is a grow bag? if we put her in jammies she takes the bottoms off or if its a one piece will manage to open the buttons and get her legs out. if she can't because its a zipper then she screams bloody murder. My daugher is 10 months and has slept with a blanket since she was 4 months, a small pillow since 8 months (after she started being able to crawl well), and her stuffed animal since 9 months. She refuses to fall asleep without the blankie. The stuffed animal is more the "travel friend" for daytime. Most nights the pillow gets shoved to the side and she ends up asleep with her butt in the air at the other end of the crib... but if she wakes up in the middle of the night the only way she puts herself back to sleep is if she can find that blankie and pillow again.

my daughter has had a fleece blanket in bed with her since she was 4 months old. It's pretty big too-3ft by 5ft-and has been fine with it. She has to have it everywhere she goes now and we actually made a duplicate for her to bring one to daycare. She is also sleeping in pj's with the option of foot coverings. Once summer approaches, we're looking into lighter pj's but since she has a fleece blanket, she may end up sleeping in not much this summer.

Oh, and he stands up every morning in the sleeping bag too - I guess he is used to it.

Jack has slept in the sleepingbag since he was born and at the moment also wears all in one jammies with feet. We will keep him in them (in fact have just bought 5 in the next size up) until summer then move to a lighter bag with pyjamas.

I just started using the quilt that came with the bedset & my son is doing just fine. I put a light blanket on him covering from his neck down & then I use the quilt from just under his arms on down. He's also wearing normal pj's, shirt & pants- nothing covering his feet, he's just fine. It's getting hotter where I live so it's not super cold.

I was worried about that also. He rolls around in his crib, sits up, stands up, and even jumps up and down while wearing his sleep sack. It doesn't seem to faze him. He has been in them since day one!

My son sleeps in the footed, one piece jammies. He moves around a lot and I have a small blanket in the crib for him. I spent some money and bought a really nice thermostat-controlled heater for his room. During the winter, our house gets really cold at night. He was always waking up w/cold feet and legs, no matter how many layers I put on him. Once it warms up more, I will probably put him in pjs.

my daughter roles around the bed too much so I don't have anything blankets in there with her. She hated the sleeper bags so to keep her nice and snug I put her in footed pjs or the two piece jammies and a onesie with socks.

[deleted account]

my daughter has been walking since 8 1/2 months so the wearable blanket is def out of the question she is allover her crib when she sleeps so i do not feel comfortable letting her sleep with a blanket im afraid she will get rolled up in it and suffocate so iput a onesie on her and a thick sleeper.

Paige is 10 months and will stay in a grow bag until she is at least 2yrs old.
That is what was recommended to me by my clinic nurse, so that is what i will do.
My eldest daughter is 27months old and still sleeps in her grow bag.

With the wearable blanket Tamara, can your son still stand up? I've thought about those, but I think my daughter would go crazy if she couldn't wiggle around and stand up when she woke up. Does it seem to bother him?

My son wears pjs and the Halo sleep sacks. They are awesome, coming in different infant to young child sizes, and various fabrics for the season. These are said to help guard against SIDS also. They can be found at any store.

My son sleeps in 2 piece pajamas and the full length pajamas that button all the way up or zips. and either one he always has socks on. so if he is in just the jammies his feet do not get cold. Also I stopped swaddling him like a week after we came home and he has been using a small blanket since then.

My daughter sleeps in pajamas (has from birth) and she sleeps under a small light-weight blanket/quilt. The quilt that came with her bedding is too big and thick, and we have it hanging on the wall.
