The other day, DH put the baby down for his nap with a blanket. I yelled at him, and he said it was because he was clutching at it when he fell asleep while they were snuggling in the rocker. We kept a close eye on him, and he proceeded to nap for almost 3 hours. This is unheard of. Generally speaking, his naps last for 20 to 40 minutes.
While we continue to use sleep sacks at night, we have given him the blanket for naps every day since then, and every day he has rewards us with a 2 to 3 hour nap.
I still get freaked out though, because he does pull it up over his face quite frequently. I watch him on the monitor, and I end up going in to move the blanket off his face a few times during the course of his nap.
Is this nuts? He's nearly 9 months, is that still young enough that he could accidentally suffocate himself with the blanket? Why does he sleep for so long when he has it? Warmth? I'm getting hooked on these long naps.
