DD has slept in a grobag since she was 8 weeks old. It eventually became a real sleep cue fir her, however I now know she is no longer using them at nursery as she is sleeping on those little beds (having moved to the toddler room) rather than in a cot... She is now 16m.
I am thinking ahead to transitioning into a bed, which I know might be a few months off yet, but I was wondering what the best way to go about it might be? Is it best to get them used to sheets/blankets in advance, or continue to use the grobags in the bed initially (with no other covers obvioulsy!)?
She will need the next size up bag soon as the ones she is in are 12-18m, so if it's best to start her with blankets, I'll do it then rather than buy new bags.
Personally... I moved my two DCs to big beds when they were about 1 year 10 months. At that time they stayed in their grobags and had no other covers. As the autumn got colder (they are both autumn birthdays) I kept them in light grobags and added light covers on top, to keep them warm in the winter. In the spring, when the weather warmed up again, I removed the grobags and kept the covers. It probably sounds like a hassle, but it worked for them!
My DS used a grobag from 1 month old to 2.5 years, when he just decided for himself that he didn't want to use one any more. At that point I bought him a duvet for his cot bed and he's never looked back. He learned to unzip his grobag when he was about 18 months old and would remove it before climbing out of his cot in the morning to come and find us!
