Anna was still in a grow bag for a while when she moved to her bed. Gracie just has a duvet and pulls it over herself, she is usually out of it when we go to bed but I just cover up, she hates to be hot at night though x

Re: keeping warm. We put duvets on the beds when we moved them in. Same as we have. They have wool blankets on top in the winter.

we switched pippa from a sleeping bad to duvet when we took her cot sides of, as she was able to walk round in her grow bag and i was worried about her head diving into something. she quickly realised the duvet kept her warm, as she was always found in the wardrobe or drawer with it on :hohoho:

We've just started using a duvet and pillow to get her used to that, then once that has become more familiar, we'll move her to her new room and take the side off the cot.

You can get duvets that are attached to the fitted sheet and zip up like a sleeping bag which will stop them kicking the covers off - I'll see if I can find the link. Half a mo.

ben switched from sleeping bag to duvet when he was about 12m as he kept getting tangled up. We tucked it in so it didn't move too much.

We are planning to take the sides off the cot to make it into a bed in the next month or so. Oliver currently has a grobag and often has a blanket in the winter, which he is learning to pull back over himself. We've bought a duvet and pillow and are going to use it in the cot before the sides come off so it's not to many changes all in one go.

Iris was about the age of your LOs when we moved over here. She coped remarkably well with all the change and upheaval. I kept her in a sleeping bag, just because it was something familiar of hers regardless of the bed she was sleeping in. (Iris had lots of changes of bed over the few months it took to leave the UK and get set up over here: a hotel in Yorkshire, a hotel in London, a hotel in Singapore, some time at a friend's place, a hotel in Sydney and a travel cot in our house in Sydney while we waited for our furniture to arrive - 6 beds in a couple of months.) I took sheets and sleeping bags in our travel luggage and also carried some of our usual brand washing powder, so I could wash as needed and everything would still seem familiar. Once we were set up in Sydney, I introduced proper bedding.
