Dd is 3 and is going through a phase of wanting to wear basically nothing to bed of a night. A skimpy nightie (that's miles too small for her) is all she will wear.
the tantrums and how upset she gets of I/dh try to get her to wear anything more substantial is just full on and makes us all upset.
ive just added more blankets to her bed, she doesn't get hot. She wakes at 5.30 am absolutely stone cold and says "I'm freezing mummy". She won't even wear it over pjs or with a long sleeve top under it.
We give her the option of choosing what she wants to wear to bed. But always goes for the nightie (we don't use this an an option) When it's in the wash or wet, she has a total meltdown.
the nights get down to 4 degrees. There is no heating in her room. Getting a heater in there is not an option. Dangerous and we can't afford it.
She won't wear a sleeping bag thing.
I know its it's a phase and she is exercising her independence but I feel I need to step in and create a boundary on this one. I don't want her getting sick.
