    Default Keeping blankets on the bed

    DS is in a toddler bed and because he is a restless sleeper his blanket is always on the floor. It hasn't been too much of a problem because of warm nights but the cool nights are starting and I don't want to have to keep getting up to cover him all night. In winter he'll be having a blanket and a quilt. What tricks do you use to keep the covers on your kids? I have seen some clips that are suppose to work but not sure.

    My brother was like this when he was younger. He had a single bed so my dad just used a double sized doona and tucked it in.
    I guess it would depend on how restless he is as to whether or not this would actually work

    I've seen a product online called zip sheets. It works kind of like a sleeping bag that fits over the mattress, but it's open at the bottom end so they don't get stuck and still get air flow through if they move down that end.

    If he is only in a toddler bed try a single bed doona/blanket put sideways across the bed and tucked right underneath on both sides.

    I'm planning to leave 2.5yo DS in his sleeping bag when he moves into a big boy bed in the next few months. He can stay in it til he's a teenager for all I care, if it means I don't have to keep covering him up all night!

    I have the same issue. I have the pjs from Kathmandu, they keep him warm with his regular pjs on.
    In regards to the sleeping bag, are the legs free (so if toddler got up could they walk)

    I was going to start a thread asking where I can buy turtle necks or skivvies for a 1 yr old or size 0. If anybody knows here. (Not taking the topic away)

    Best and less or target I would think. My sister have me a whole heap of skivvies in a size 1 or 2 secondhand so you can certainly buy them somewhere.

    Op my dd hates blankets- she wakes almost as soon as I put one on her and gets angry. I have just started putting her in a sleep suit onesie over her PJs to compensate for this now the weather has turned cold again.
