So i bought some sleeping bags for him but he manages to get the zips down half way ( the ones that zip right up the front)
Just went through and he was compleatly out of one that closes with poppers. arms out and everything, lying on his front with bum in the air upside down at the bottom of the cot.

What now? It's not exactly freezing atm, but i live in Scotland so it will be soon! He has always been like this, so i used to swaddle him.

Any suggestions?

Have you tried putting it on back to front?

No advice but I loved it when mine stuck their bums in the air like that - too cute! grin

Actually, a bit of an idea - wack up the radiator in his room when it turns colder!

Get a sleeping bag from JoJo ...their zips end up at the bottom corner and my escapologist hasn't managed them at 18 months

OR, dress him in layers - so vest sleepsuit, cardy, socks you can take summat off or put summat on, depending on temp.

I had this problem with my dd - but only when she was bit older and wiser!! I always bought Grobags - the newer ones now come with a little tab that popper fastens across where the zip ends so little ones can't get at the zip to undo them. The older styles didn't have this and those were the ones she was getting out of. Had no problem with the newer ones.

I must say, Daisy's is an excellent suggestion! Wish I'd have thought of's always the most simple ideas that we never think of, isn't it!!

Vest, light Growbag, and shirt over the top. Or sew a tab over the zip at the top, and fasten with a button.
