Keeping baby warm and safe in his crib

How do you keep your baby warm?

I was putting ds2 down with a blanket and tucking it under him, and I always get him immediately when he wakes up. I'm not comfortable doing that anymore. He has now twice, during play on the floor not in his crib, pulled a blanket over his head. I heard and helped him within a moment but I'm starting to have extreme panic that it'll happen and I'll be a moment too late

I've also been wondering whether the bumper pads are safe, since he's starting to scoot around. Im thinking of tying them on the outside so he still has his own space separated from the rest of he room. Is there any reason I shouldn't do that?

Fleece sleepers is what we use. In the really cold months we use thermal sleepers under fleece pjs. I don't use bumpers but I've heard those mesh ones are ok.

We always used the Halo sleepsacks, which are a "wearable blanket." There are a variety of fabrics, so you can use the microfleece in the winter to keep them warm and toasty.

We used the fleece sleep sacks when the kiddos were little. If it was super cold I'd put a fleece sleeper on too. Our house is pretty warm though.

I was using the sleep sacks but his arms and hands were always cold. I do have a couple that fit him I need to pull them back out. Our house gets chilly at night though if we don't have the heater running almost constantly

How about a long-sleeved onesie under the sleep sack? And don't forget some socks. That's what we would do.

Fleece footed sleepers. The TCP blanket sleepers are awesome. They do fit big FYI, DD2 is transitioning to 24 months/size 2 in most clothes and can still wear her 12-18 month TCP blanket sleepers.

He was in jammies and a sleep sack every night but still had cold hands and arms. Maybe I'll try a long sleeved shirt under his jammies then the sleep sack.

I have also have a large and thick baby comforter down over his mattress that he is now starting to pull the edges of up. I put it down because the mattress is chilly without it...
