I am probably being completely paranoid but for the first time my ds is using a duvet (he is 19 months old). It is a nice heavy cotton one but doesn't mould well round the body - if you see what I mean. It is so cold tonight, even with the heating on. I have just been up to see him and he has wrapped himself in it with just the top of his head peeping out. We have just moved the duvet down a bit but I am worried he will do it again and that he will suffocate. Am I being mad?
Thanks all of you, I feel a better and won't worry too much. Actually mine doesn't have a tog rating - it's from the Greenbaby company (mail order) and I did wish I hadn't wasted the money as a) no tog rating and b) very heavy. But tonight it seems to help with the cold so maybe it wasn't such a bad buy.
If you are really worried - there is no need though 'cos its totally ok - why dont you get him a Gro Bag?? My 5 1/2 month old DD has one and they are so reassuring. The tog on it is 2.5 but no idea what tog duvets should be. I saw a starter kit in Index i think which will probably the perfect tog
I forgot to say that ds already has a grobag. He has used them almost since birth and with great success. It is just that it is so so cold at the moment - about 15 degrees in ds's room despite the heating been on (I think the radiator needs bleeding) and it gets colder during the night. Blankets and the grobag just haven't been enough to keep him warm, hence the duvet idea. What is Index - website or shop - as I haven't heard of it and always interested to find new places!
dd is in a gro bag 2.5 tog but i think she wakes in the night cos she's cold (also cos of eczema)She always ends up in bed with me and i have to have half the quilt on the floor so that she's sleeping on the sheet but with nothing else over her. Have been thinking of getting her a little quilt but don't know how that would work with my quilt
