my Ds sleeps in my bed with 4-5 pillows, flat and fitted sheet and 2 donas,
Sent from my MB526 using BubHub
Dd2 is almost 2 and in he cot has a pillow, top sheet, blanket (or 2 depending on the coldness), plus her teddy and baby doll, and about 50 million other toys and books.
My son is 22 months and doesn't have a pillow, but I think it's ok at that age to have one.
That bedding sounds fine but If it's super cold try putting a sheepskin under his fitted sheet, beds can get super cold.
Edit: a folded up doona will also wirk
My 2.5yo has on his bed :
A woolen underlay
Flannelette fitted sheet
Flannelette flat sheet
Mink blanket double up
A polar fleece blanket
He wears flannelette pj's to bed too. Sometimes he doesn't sleep under the doona, but always has all the other layers on. He also has a pillow with a flannelette cover.
My dd has a pillow bout 3 blankets (her room is freezing cold and I don't trust her if I put a small heater in there) she has bout 2 dolls as well.
My DS is 2. His room drops to 15/16 deg. He sleeps with:
Bottom and top flannel sheet
We're in Canberra which is super cold at night. DS is 19 months old and has a thick sleeping bag and blanket. He wears flannelette pajamas with an extra long sleeve top underneath. And i put a heater on low to take the chill off the air. Keeps him at a comfortable temperature, not too hot or cold.
i follow the instructions on the 2.5 tog sleeping bag, my 2 yr old sleeps in pyjamas with a short sleeved top ontop. It gets to about 18-17 degrees here - that is what the gro bag guide says anyway. If got below 16 I would probably put something else over her. I remember reading that its the layers that trap air around the baby which keeps them warm rather than the weight of the blanket etc.
