    Default Keeping covers on.

    I need some suggestions on how to keep the covers on DS during the night. Especially when it's a little cool.

    DS moves so much during the night I am constantly getting up just to put the covers back over him. And its wearing me out. I feel like I am getting no sleep, DH sleeps though him waking even so he doesn't notice anything going on, I am 31weeks pregnant with twins and want to get some sleep. I've tried tucking them in tight and using a towel to keep them tucked in and using a larger sheet but some how he always manages to pull them off. Any suggestions would be helpful. I am willing to try anything.

    DS is 12 months, I don't know if that makes much difference though.

    Are you using a sleeping bag? Because if you get one the right weight (TOG) your DS won't need sheets or blankets

    Kinda given up on blankets. Dd is 2.5. She'll ask for her blanket when she is going to sleep, then kicks it off. I rug her up. In winter she might wear tights under her flannels, and a long sleeved onesie with a singlet, and her flannel top over all that. Tried sleeping bags but now she's bigger she hates them. They were good while they lasted.

    Good luck and I hope you get some sleep.

    Just dress him in more clothes/pyjamas so you dont have to worry about blankets

    My mil made a sheet slip, like a pillow case but cot size, when dp was a baby as she said she had the same problem. We tried this with our kids and it worked perfectly.
