Taking care of your turtle's overall health.

I let my turtle sleep under blankets through the whole night. Will that affect his health?! :|
He stays asleep through the whole night!!!

That's nice but have heard horror stories of turtles suffocating or being thrown to the floor by accident. Things can happen. It's your call?

Is this the one inch turtle you posted in June? If so a big no , still to small and the shell may still be pliable.

I would let it sleep in a box near your bed, on a desk maybe ? Make sure it cannot climb out of it.

25 + years and counting, I have been sleeping with the kids. Does not seem to affect their health. They actually enjoy it, quiet, dark, warm, secure and all theirs. I am fortunate that when I hold a child I do not move, I stay absolutely still. After anywhere from 30 minutes to 6 hrs I get up and put them in their bed.

Yes caution must be taken not to squish them, only you know how safe you are.
