Oh, I see your comment now that I submitted mine - that is what we did - gave her a knit blanket that was very breathable. She still put it on her head and got very hot and sweaty, but at least we weren't worried about her breathing. I still don't understand how your original answer pertains though...

I'm not sure what your advice is? We told her not to cover her head with her "blankie" or we would take it away. After she repeatedly kept covering her head with it, we took it away. She then proceeded to cover her head with the blanket that was on her bed. She wasn't in a crib, but in a bed. So is your advice to strip her bed of anything she can cover her head with, and suck it up when she cries?

We actually did try one of those sleep mask things that some people on airplanes wear - she didn't like that either. I like the idea of trying a hat though - it's definitely worth a try :)

That's a good point that helps me be a little less fearful about her sleeping with something covering her head. I think a compromise is indeed the way to go. Thanks for your answer!

We actually tried to use one of these on her when she was younger and still in a crib, and she always found a way to take it off. This would be a really good option otherwise though :)

I like the personal experience in your answer, and the part about finding something comfortable for us. Maybe we can take a trip to the store with her and find a blanket we all will be comfortable with.
