Ollie looks so comfortable. I wish someone would do that to me.
please tell me this was not in his crib, but in a common room where many people were watching him...babies are not supposed to have big poofy blankets..they are supposed to sleep in cribs with hard mattresses on their backs. I have a 7 month old who sleeps in a crib on a sheet..nothing more. I have many children and they all didn't get blankets/pillows/stuffed animals until about 2 yrs old.....I just worry as I remember that crib pic you posted way back...so so unsafe.....
Hi!Ollie is so precious.He is so loved which has aided him in his gross and fine skill development as well as cognitive development.Sweet dreams baby.Pat
Oliver is soooo adorable I could just eat him up.The girls are adorable too!!!Marilyn from Canada
I always enjoy reading your blog Christine, and seeing gorgeous photo after gorgeous photo of your precious children. Thanks so much for sharing. Oliver looks so snuggly and warm. He's such a cutie!
Christine, I enjoy reading your blog so much! I am so happy to see that Nolan is doing well. I used to see him on RR and pray for a family for him.Regarding Oliver sleeping in the blanket, the hospital told us to never let our baby sleep with a blanket or a stuffed animal in his crib or nearby him. To reduce the risk of suffocation/SIDS, babies should always sleep on their backs on a hard mattress. A fluffy blanket is really dangerous for a baby.
I hope whoever took the picture of Oliver then snuggled up next to him! Too cozy!
I seriously don't think Ollie is at risk for SIDS at his age. My oldest child is 27. In that time span, the hospital has advised that infants ONLY sleep on their bellies, ONLY on their sides (with a special pillow shaped to keep them from rolling over) and now ONLY on their backs with no blankets or even bumper pads (which were absolutely mandatory at one point). What about swaddling newborns? I don't think any of it has anything to do with SIDS. It is the fact that no one can come up with a reason for SIDS or a sure fire preventative measure that fuels these recommendations. Personally, all of my babies (foster, adopted, biological, daycare) have ALL preferred tummy sleeping. Ollie looks so comfy, cozy - what sweet sisters he has!
Sweet baby (and girls!) :)
My children who are now 46 and 42 slept in their tummy's, with bumber pads AND - gasp -blankets! I am now almost 70 and I, and my siblings all slept bundled up - we had to to keep warm. I am not sure how we all survived :-) There is no proof that any of these thing cause SIDS. I don't know of one single case of SIDS in any friends or rellies who slept their babies wrapped up and not on their back. Next year it will be something new again. So silly.Marilyn from Canada
