If you follow me, you may know that I do recommend giving children a lovey to help them feel comfortable while sleeping. (Click here for my previous blog post on why I recommend them) The problem with loveys? The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend anything in the crib with a baby until they are at least one year of age. While other’s may say a small blanket square or small stuffed toy is okay, ultimately parents have to decide whether or not to go against that recommendation. When recommending them, I always let parents know about this and recommend they speak with their pediatrician about this choice. So what is the alternative? Up until recently, the choices were either go along with the AAP recommendation, or not. But, a company has decided to make another choice available and I am so excited! (Please note – I was given a sample of the blanket sleeper of this and do make a percentage off sales from the link I will give below)
Bitta Kidda has created a sleep sack and a blanket sleeper that both have lovies attached to it! Two small squares with satin on one side and fabric on the other are attached to this sleep sack. They are placed in a manner that they can not be lifted over the child’s face. I love the blanket sleeper they sent me to check out awhile back, and now they are introducing the sleep sack and also a daytime solution. The daytime solution is a blanket square that can be clipped onto clothing. A great solution for car rides when your baby may be fussy and need a soothing object.
