    Default How do you keep your toddler warm at night

    i have a 15 month old boy, he's been waking up heaps recently in the mid of the night due to the coldness. His hands and feet are always freezing when I pick him up. He hates sleeping bags and he moves around a lot in his sleep. I usually get up several times to make sure his blankie is still on him. But last night I was in a deep sleep and by the time I woke up his been sleeping in the cot without blankie for a while and he was shaking! I put on warm clothing for him at night and warm bedding. We don't like the idea of leaving the heater on when asleep.
    Anyone has any ideas or advice? Would love to hear from you
    Thanks

    Double up on the jarmies.
    So singlet, jarmie set 1 then over the top another jarmie set (possibly a size bigger). Bed socks to keep their tooties snug.

    You can get thermal underwear for bubs. That might help?
    Also socks or maybe a wonder suit where the hand/cuffs fold over to keep them warm?

    We rely on a sleeping bag for DS though.

    Otherwise my sis used to turn the blankets around and tuck it in across the cot so that it would stay tucked in.

    We use a snug time blanket sleeper. It's 2.5 tog but it's like a jumpsuit with legs rather than a sleeping bag. But it's still way too cold so he has flannie pjs, a singlet and long sleeved top, flannie sheets 2 blankets and a quilt.

    If he bothered to stay covered he'd be warm but he kicks it all of. So now we've given in and he comes and snuggles with us in our bed.

    More layers!!

    We lived in a deathly cold cottage a few years back - DS1 wore singlet, long sleeve cotton PJs, flannelette PJs, socks, then polar fleece sleeping suit with covered in feet (sorta like a grow suit) then blanket and quilt !!

    It was so cold in the house you could see your breath in the air!

    Do you have reverse cycle heating? We put that on around tea time and turn it off when we go to bed - that keeps the rooms pretty warm!

    Thank you ladies for your advice. I will get some flannel or thermal pjs tomorrow and some warm and longer socks! I have put on 2 extra layers on him tonight, hopefully it will be better for him. We co-sleep as well, he sleeps in his cot inside our room (process of moving him out because we have a new baby due in OCT, looks like will be delayed till warmer), but recently due to the coldness I have been moving him to our bed around 4am (thats when hes usually feeling freezing) and he sleeps a lot better. But I am trying to avoid bed sharing.

    I put my 23 month old DD in a sleeping bag, as well as flannelette pyjamas.
