So far, we've co-slept with my son, but I'd like to start transitioning him to a crib by our bed. He's 18 months. How do I keep him warm? He's got full body pajamas and I do put socks on him and occassionally even a fleece if it's very cold. I've got some baby blankets and even a small quilt, but none are particularly warm. We use a heavy down comforter on our bed, and maybe it's totally psychological, but it just doesn't feel right to have him alone in the crib with no body heat from us and no covers. I'm wondering if I should get him a little crib down comforter? A wool blanket? When they're babies, you worry so much about using a blanket.. at what age can you transition to using one?
So what do you all do? At what age do people start introducing real bed covering? Or do you just wait until they're older, and just dress them very warmly for now? Curious what you all do.
