Hi, my name is Christina Gavenda at Domesticfelicity.com, and today we're going to talk about when you can put blankets in your baby's crib. Having a blanket on your baby's crib is a really nice touch for decor, but it's important to remember that they can be a safety hazard. It can be really dangerous to have a mobile, but small baby in a crib with a blanket because they can get tangled with it or they could roll up against it, but not be able to roll back, and so suffocate themselves. This has happened to babies, and that's why it's recommended to not put anything including blankets in your baby's crib at all. Once they move to a toddler bed, you'll know that they are mature enough to be able to get out of any sort of entanglement that they get in or yell for help but as an infant, they're not able to do that. During the Winter months when it's chilly out and your baby needs a blanket, there are some really great options on the market right now. You dress them in their normal pajamas with socks nice and warm and then over top you put a sleep sack and then it keeps them warm like a blanket that wraps them yet their legs can move around and they can kick. My name is Christina Gavenda. Thanks so much for watching and that's when you can put blankets in your baby's crib.
