    Default Electric blankets & co sleeping

    Any fellow uses?

    And does anyone use them and also co sleep? I haven't used one since being preg but I want one again looking at a split side one. Would that be ok?

    DS is now 2.

    I would only use to heat up bed before getting into but personally I'd be uncomfortable leaving on in case a wee leak or something? I usually have a bath before bed in winter and we have a small oil heater in our small hall with bedroom doors open. Seems to be doing the trick
    I'm probably over cautious tho

    Id use it to warm up the bed before you get in then switch it off.

    I brought an awesome one from target a couple weeks ago that has a detachable fleece overlay. Sooooooo cozy

    You can actually put waterproof mattress protectors over the top of most electric blankets, depending on the brands and materials.
    I have that layout in case we are mucking on my bed and either a dog or child (or me lol) has an accident.

    If you're looking at buying one then you can buy waterproof ones. I have one and it has 9 different heat settings and a timer so it will switch itself off during the night. It's waterproof and can be thrown through the washing machine whenever.

    Otherwise, you can put mattress protector over them (fabric ones not plastic) and that should do the trick too.
