My daughter is 3 months and is fulling her blankets over her face. i cant swaddle her she doesnt like it but needs a blanket on her to sleep. How can i prevent her from pulling it up and possible suffocating herself?

My son was the same way! I put him in his crib and layed his blanket on him then tucked the blanket on the sides of the crib.

Warmer sleepers and keep her room warm. No need for a blanket if you do this and no worrying about suffocation.

Use either jumpsuits or sleeping bags/gro bags, you can also try tucking them in at the bottom of the cot so they don't move.

Tuck it in under that materess at the bottom and sides or get her a sleeping bag then you don't have to worry about her pulling it up or getting cold if she moves about.

Like Ashley W. said, try a blanket sleeper, I use those for my son. He doesn't like to be swaddled either, not even when he was in the hospital as a newborn, haha.

Good luck!

Try using a blanket sleeper- they keep them nice and warm.... if she wont sleep without a blanket then tuck the blanket under the mattress of the crib, so that it comes up to her chest, but not in her face.
