Do you have any solution for the kids to keep the duvet/ blanket over during the night

to stop them waking up in the cold?? I couldn't find any clever solution yet. Thanks for your suggestions, ideas...

Not for the kids, but for me, I have a throw across the end of the bed. It isn't tucked in, but the weight is enough to stop me from kicking the duvet off.

Use a sleeping bag?

Duvet clips from JoJo Maman Bebe. Bloody brilliant they are.

Turn the duvet sideways and tuck 1/3 underneath the mattress. They don't need the length and this gives them much more width plus keeps it in place.

Depending on the age/size of your dc, put the quilt across the bed and tuck some the the length under the mattress on each side of the bed. If your dc is too tall to do it with a single quilt (I.e. Their feet are going to stick out the bottom) then do the same but with a double quilt.

My mil does this, so we got a really heavy duvet that she struggled to even move lol.

Fleece pjs with a tshirt underneath so they just sleep with no duvet.

Maybe ask for this to be moved to a more appropriate topic OP?
AIBU can be very brutal and isnt really the right place to get the advice that you need especially on a Friday night smile

i gave up on this as it was just a losing battle. My son used to wear jog bottoms and sweatshirt rather than pyjamas, and socks to keep him warm. If it was really cold we left the heating on a low temperature all night.

DD chucks hers off, and gets quite upset if it's put back. So we layer her up for bed, including socks.

Sleeping bag.

I was going to suggest the duvet clips too. Used them with our wriggly daughter for years.

Mymouthgetsmeintrouble Fri 04-Nov-16 22:12:53

I put the duvet the other way and tuck in the sides i then put a loose throw over the top to stop drafts

Duvet clips again here. I had them when I was small and they revolutionised my nights.

Sleeping bag.

Really heavy too large for the bed duvet so you can tuck it under the mattress. We bought dd1 a 10.5 cheap heavy one from primark and the sleeping through effect has been miraclous.

Duck tape?

We used to religiously re-cover DS2 when we went to bed each night - the little bugger had deliberately kicked it all off again before we even got back out the door!

Another vote for duvet clips from jojomamanbebe.

I'm VERY old, so I grew up in a house which had sheets and blankets. My aunt and uncle and cousins had TRAVELLED, so even in the 1970s, they had duvets.
Eventually (in the 1980s) we got them too, and we were rubbish with them at first. But you do learn to toss them off when you're too hot and flip them back over when you're too cold. As everyone now has duvets, I think it's a life-skill.

So... wake up at 3 am, cold. find duvet, pull it over you, fall back asleep.

Lesson learned. Move on!

It's not dissimilar to touching a radiator.

Don't bother with it - wear pjs & onesie all night
