Has anyone else experienced this?
Aw, that's kind of cute!
I wouldn't even worry if she does it in your presence only and with light, breathable blankets. When napping with her just be careful to hold the blanket away from her head ~it doesn't sound like she does it in her sleep, right? I would also have her in a sleep sack for night (not sure if those work for cosleeping or if you even are).
Also, I think the danger of babies suffocating in blankets is more for newborns before they have head control. I always thought older babies would just move their head if they couldn't breathe. Although if your LO is getting herself / her head wrapped up in a blanket then that could be dangerous if she couldn't breathe and couldn't find her way out. So yeah, I would just let her do it only under close supervision. And keep in mind it could be a passing phase...most things are with babies!

My DD did this! I was terrified the first time I saw it. I didn't want to take her blankie away entirely, but I was scared of her suffocating herself. We introduced two handmade blankets with a very loose knit.

DD used to do this. She used to put it over her face and then move it up and down really fast.
Same with scraves and things. I would just be sure to watch her close while she played this game with the cloth and help her move it away from her face, if she got caught up or something.
She has'nt done this since about 7 months though!

Same here. We used to kinda toss a receiving blanket in the air (holding 2 corners) and let it float down onto him. He LOVED it. Got so excited LOL And still does honestly

My DD was like this. She went to the infant room where I worked at the time and the rules wouldn't allow for a blanket in her crib and she wouldn't sleep there. They suggested a small lovely and she was instantly hooked. Slept with one for years after that.
