Sleeping bag problem

Postby jennyclaire » Thu Oct 07, 2010 8:44 pm

Hi there, my son is now 20 months old and has always slept in a baby sleeping bag. But now he can undo it and take it off. Which is a problem now the weather is getting colder. Does anyone know what the best solution could be or what I could use instead as the best transition from a sleeping bag to a quilt? He moves around a lot in bed so a sleeping bag has always been a good option to us..... any help appreciated :)

I'd give him a duvet, he'll soon work it out :wink:

Oliver is just a bit younger and I am thankful he's not figured out how to undo his sleeping bag.

We've been trying to figure out how to do this transition too and have started putting a blanket in his cot so he's used to it. We've also put him in pj's under his sleeping bag rather than a long sleeved vest

Adam did this too .... just moved to duvet. He didn't take long to figure out what to do if he was cold... :D

Fleece sleepsuits are great for kids that won't stay covered up :D

My 2 were total houdinins when it came to sleeping bags.. Which ones do you have? do they fasten with the zip down the middle at the front? if so then put it on backwards so the zip is up the centre back..

That fooled mine for a little while..

Other than that, a duvet/blankets and fleece sleepsuits were what we progressed to

WSS but a couple of big cellular blankets instead so he can layer up as he likes. Id get a few fleece sleepsuits also so he is less likely to get cold (primark do them £4 each) if he does kick them off.

DD is 19 months and doesnt have sleeping bags anymore. I make sure she is well dressed (longies, long sleeved top and nightie to cover her back ATM) and she has a big cellular blanket which ive been telling her what its for and getting her used to it (she used to hate blankets), she now sleeps well with it and i will add a few more blankets when it gets cold :wink:

Thanks everyone for your advice. I am not sure what I'm going to try yet. Will let you know what happens! :)

The fleece sleepsuits work well, but then I also have a child who has never taken off his sleeping bag and after 2 months of deciding he didn't want them anymore, chooses everynight to go to bed in one and he is nearly 36 months!
