Winter is coming very soon and it gets really cold up here in Minnesota, I was wondering if we can still use our electric blanket to warm up while in bed. But the thing is, our 7-month old son sleep with us so I'm kind of skeptical if it's okay to use it with him this time. Please share your experience, thanks a lot!

Electric blankets can short out and catch on fire. NEVER leave your child alone with a electric blanket on.

At night, when everybody is asleep, it is usually more energy efficient to only heat the beds, rather then the empty house.

Layers of comforters usually work just fine, but are also not so great for babies.

We use portable oil filled radiator style heaters in the bedrooms. They work pretty well. A few hours before going to bed pull the blankets back so the heat of the room can get into the blankets so it won't be so cold when you first get into bed. I wouldn't use an electric blanket at all, you can get shocked if they are damaged and what if the baby chews on it when the teeth start coming in.

My sister-in-law's neighbor's house was burned to the ground because of a portable heater. No idea how it happened but the firefighters said it is unsafe to use portable heaters.

Oil filled??? Sounds EXTREMELY dangerous.
I wouldn't know tho as the only place I ever lived that you had to have a heater was Antartica for 4 months!. I NEVER will live in a place you have to have a toilet seat warmer again.
In Antartica you'd stick to the toilet seat if it wasn't fur lined or heated!!!
VERY emBARE ASSing!!

Oil filled electric heater works pretty good for us, we put one in our computer room! Heated up the room in 5minutes, with temperature control and such, can't go wrong!

To the OP, try getting a down feather covers, and fleece sheets... You'll be sweating in the snowy days... Tried and tested...
