Cot bed duvet with flap at bottom?

My DS (approaching 3) has started waking in the night, usually just once, maybe twice, but its usually just to be 'tucked in properly'. We just have to pop in and out. but with baby no2 on the way it's really beginning to worry me - I'd hoped he'd be settled and sleeping through by then.

He has 2 duvet covers and one of them is swedish (ebay) and it has a long flap at the bottom to tuck right under the mattress. He sleeps waaay better with this one as it stays put.

Does anyone know where I can find another? I have tried the usual UK suspects plus verbaudet and Ikea (can't tell from online if theirs do or not?) I guess its a european thing?

Quite interested in the zip up gro ones but DS has those foam bumpers and its always quite a push to get fitted sheets over the top so they might not work.

also need to be 100% cotton.

Looking again at verbauded I can't tell - it says 'envelope style opening' - does anyone have one of their covers?

The ones from the white company have this

Have you seen the duvet sets made by the Gro company? They are attached at one side and zip up along the open side so you can gradually get them used to having the duvet.

We've got the 'songbird' cotbed duvet cover from Verbaudet & it does have a flap at the bottom & is 100% cotton.

Vertbaudet ones have the flap. We had a star pattern one that did.

ooh thank you thats good to know about verbaudet. Problem now is that their sizing seems to be on the small size compared to a UK cotbed sized duvet? By about 30 cm each way?

Just use a single bed duvet.

Turn it horizontally and tuck right underneath on both sides. I promise it will stay tucked in all night!

Just remember to keep doing it once moved to a single bed. I forgot and had several weeks of waking before I figured it out... blush

Or use duvet clips
