Here we will guide you about when can baby sleep with blanket which will be very helpful for you to take care of your baby.
The AAP, does not recommend the use of blankets for sleep for infants under 12 months of age. The reasons wires, one suffocation, the blanket can get around the infant’s, face causing them not to breathe correctly.
Choosing & Using Blankets for Safe Sleep in Child Care
Two would be overheating, which causes the infant’s body. To get too warm three would be strangulation where the blanket could get around the infant’s neck. However, with licensing you are allowed to use one blanket with written parental permission.
However, if you do not feel comfortable allowing blankets within your program, you have every right to refuse the use of blankets within your program. You just make sure that it is stated in your policy.
There are several types of blankets. If you are allowing the use of blankets, I would recommend that use a thin one. Thin would be something such as this, as you can tell it’s, a very thin blanket. This is another option, another one that you might use.
That would be considered thin, so those two are options. There are tempered several types of blankets that I do see that are thick, one would be the quilted, so, as you can tell, this would be something that is thicker.
This is another type that I see many times in child care, that is more bulky thicker and then the Thai blankets are also ones that I see very commonly visits, the type that has two layers of fleece and then obviously it’s cut and Tied so with all that fringe and the extra material that’s, where that could be a hazard and with all of the thicker blankets, the infant is just put it more at risk for overheating and for suffocation.
The other issue that I see with blankets, sometimes in childcare, is they want to use blankets to either block out sound or block out light. So therefore, they will take a blanket and hang it on the sides or over the top, such as this or draping over at the top and either way is not allowable by licensing.
And if you’re wondering why it’s. Just putting the infinite risk for suffocation, overheating strangulation, because there that blanket itself might just accidentally fall into the pack and play or into the crib environment or someone could bump it or the infant themselves could be able to pull it down on themselves when using blankets.
If you do allow them in your program, this is how it is recommended to use a blanket first place, the infant in the pack and play or in the crib on his or her back and with the blanket you just want to make sure that the arms are above the blankets and the blankets only place nipple high get In on the three sides, and then you can lay there depending on if the infant does the symptom or his or herself, but just make sure that the arms are above the blanket the blankets nipple high and it’s.
