DS is 19 months old and a real wriggler in his sleep. He's starting to get too long for his 6-18 month gro-bags, and ideally, I'd like to invest in a quilt for him, before we move him to a bed in a few months time.
But, I just don't think a loose blanket / quilt will work yet, given he wriggles so much. Is it worth me trying, or should I spend out on getting some bigger gro-bags do you think (what I am tempted to do, but I know I need to wean him off gro-bags at some point ).
crikey divvy, that's ingenious of your daughter! i am tempted to get some of the next size up really as it would be the easier (but more expensive!) option. but then i think, if we get him used to a quilt now, then it will just be transition to a bed, i.e. more gradual. hmmm
You're right. I am going to try with his daytime naps first. Once he's sorted with those, I'll put an extra layer clothes wise on him at night and a blanket. We'll see how we get on. Cheers for posting!
Our DD moved into a bed when she was 2 and 3 months - she had always been in grobags until then. First week in bed I left her in them only because I hadn't got round to buying the bedding we needed. But when we got duvet etc - she absolutely loves them. Still wriggles out of them and ends up back to front, upside down etc - but generally even when it was really cold in the winter never been a problem. I always go and tuck her in when I go to bed and seems to be fine.
Another friend whose daughter is nearly 3 still uses them, as it stops her itching her eezcema - and she's in a bed - so no need to sstop using them if and when you move him to a bed if you don't want to.
If you are worried about spending loads - you could always look on ebay or go to a nearly new sale, there are usually loads up for grabs. Even if you want new - worth looking on ebay - I got some on there called Slumbersacs which were a lot cheaper. They also do a 12-36 months size I think so they last for ages even for a big toddler.
