DS wears wool night and day. At night he wears a WNNN under longies, usually crocheted with a long sleeved t-shirt. This is because he will NOT tolerate covers, never has. As soon as you put a blanket over him he throws it off, even in his sleep. He also hates Grobags. He likes to sleep spread eagled, on his face.
I fuss because his tops always ride up and I worry about him waking in the night cold even though this has never happened
. Maybe I'm just a fusspot? I read somewhere that if their kidneys get cold then it causes night waking. He sleeps in our bed - I wear flannel PJs, socks, dressing gown and have a duvet and he wears longies and a tee and no cover.
We've recently acquired a Big Boys Bed for him and as soon as we have a mattress for it he'll move into it but I'll worry more about him getting cold because he won't have our body heat and I won't be able to check him all the time without getting out of bed.
Someone, please reassure me that my child won't freeze to death in the night? Or is there another bedclothes option compatible with night nappies and wool covers? Or has anyone knitted sleepsuits for their kid? Like I said, he sleeps on his front and he's a heavy wetter too.
