    Default Do you use a blanket with a grobag?

    Can you do this or is it not recommended? DD 3 months is too little to roll so thought she could go in a lighter tog grobag then when the night gets cooler I can tuck a blanket over as well?

    My DD is in a sleeping bag and has blankets on top but I only put them up to her stomach

    Yep, always have. Grobags are so thin and we sleep with big thick doonas.
    I always tuck the blankets into the side of the cot though and only do up to her armpits (arms outside)

    I don't. I just follow the guidelines for temp and TOG and dress the kids accordingly. They always seem warm enough when it's cold and are great sleepers.

    I used to for DD. Same as someone else mentioned, not pulled up too high and tucked in under the mattress.

    I never have with either of my boys. They have all the TOG sleeping Gro bags(0.5, 1.5, 2.5 TOG) so I just put on the one that is right for the temperature in their room. We have a gro egg as well. Both boys are good sleepers and never been a problem. I only just got my older son (28 mths) out of his gro bag but my 10mth old is still in one.

    I always did/do.. Tonight is the first night that my 2.5 year old has gone to bed without one on!

    Yes I used a blanket as well on the really cold nights and before DD was rolling. Also tucked it in tightly so no chance of getting loose.

    Never have. DS likes to roll around in the cot all night. I just dress him more warmly in winter under the gro bag.
