Our DS (2) hated the sleepbags because he is so active in his sleep and would get all tangled up. We got him a duvet (he's still in his cotbed with sides up) which we tuck in at the sides and he goes off all tucked up but come the morning he has crawled out and is lying on top, and saying he is cold. What would you recommend. We haven't given him a pillow yet ...

I suppose if he really wants to get ou from under the duvet he will but we use these on ds duvet.

Hope this helps.

I've got a sleeping bag for DD that you can convert and zip into two legs.

It was given to me by a friend but I think it came from Vertbaudet.

I've seen these on Bump to 3.

put him to bed wearing more clothes

My DD used to do this.
A fleecy type sleepsuit over his normal bedclothes will do the trick.

nice warm pyjamas?

I stumbled upon these duvet clips the other day. Haven't tried them as mine still in grobags but might be worth a pop?

Turn duvet sideways (he is presumably short) and tuck in about half a metre each side

I have the same problem although he never seems to be bothered by the cold. Think I will just get a nice fleecy suit for him when it starts feeling cooler to put on over his pj's, don't like the thought of that zip in duvet thingamajig, imagine if they got stuck in it, surely a toddler could easily wiggle right down to the bottom and panic.

Ds has been the same since about 6 months, would find him out of his covers, but he's always toasty warm when he wakes up, think he must snuggle into the bottom sheet hmm

My DD doesn't like the covers either - I just make sure she has warm pyjamas on. She doesn't want to sleep with the covers on and she is a bad enough sleeper as it is, who am I to insist?

Put a big, cosy, fleecy sleepsuit over his jammies then no need to worry about his covers smile

Let me know grin - my DD (2.8) insists on going to bed stark naked, no covers, just on a sheet, with a fan on!
