...that is the question!
I have been a believer in having nothing in the crib since we stopped swaddling Gage. But lately I have found that Gage likes to snuggle up with a blanket while he sleeps, and he even sleeps longer when he has one to snuggle. I have been letting him have one during naps where I can check on him, but just started putting one in with him at nighttime too...I know he loves it but I can't help but worry about the what-ifs.
Oh what to do! I really don't think he would smother in a blanket at this point since he is very good at turning, rolling and using his hands. But I know freak things can always happen. So do I put him in the crib by himself, alone and miserable, making it more difficult to soothe himself to or back to sleep, or do I give him a blanket to snuggle and he's happy but I'm worried?
Just look at this:
How can I deny him such a comfort??
I am sure this is a divided topic, but please let me know your thoughts!
