Our LO has just moved up to big bed last week and she' s waking up cold at night cos she' s wriggled out and on top of duvet.

Was thinking of looking for a fleecy onesie for her, but are there any reasons why I can' t still use gro bag?

Once they can walk I think grobags are a bit dangerous. What is your LO tries to get up and walk about? A fleecy onesi is a good idea. The company that does grobags also sells quilts with poppers so it stays on the bed. Think they are called 'o to 3'. The company.

Will have a look, thanks Nelly.

I think gro bags go up to about age 12! So no, no reason why you can't continue to use them. Think my DS was in his until nearly 3yo.

I've just ordered three sleepsuits 2-3 off Amazon. (£23 including postage, not bad!)

The gro bags I have are up to 24 months so could still use those.

My DS is only 18mo but already adept at walking in his gro bag!

He's a wriggler so won't be getting rid of them any time soon.

DS4 2.10 takes his grobag off himself grin so he'll still get it on until he won't fit anymore...

She' s 21 months btw.

Last night I had to go tuck her in twice even though she was wearing vest, pj top and a fleecy one piece (no feet). In the cot she slept through from 7pm- 6.30 am.

So back to gro bag tonight. I' m not worried about her falling out and getting tangled as she tries to get out , because up to now, when she wakes she just sits up in bed and sings to herself. She doesn' t climb down until I open the door and put the lights on.

Roll on spring time!

Mine's still in a sleeping bag and he's nearly 3. He knows how to take it off if he needs to. They're brilliant!
