    Default Sleeping bag for a 3rd?

    Does anybody use a sleeping bag for their toddler?

    I put him in thermals, I'm sure they keep him warm along with the pjs, but just wondered if anyone uses sleeping bags and if there toddler trips.

    I thought the same! Our little man always wonders through to our bedroom in the middle of the night and I'm worried he will trip as well :-) when I go in there in the middle of the night he's always out of his covers. Then he wakes up cos he's cold!

    Ergopouch have a sleep suit that is almost like a snowsuit. It has grippy pads on the feet so toddlers can walk around it in. My LO can't walk yet but I've seen friends' toddlers walking or caterpillar crawling around in their sleeping bags. They seem to become pretty adept at it.

    I wouldn't due to the tripping hazard, but plenty of others seem to do so without issue. I guess it would depend on:
    1. Does your son wake up due to being cold?
    2. Does he get up and wander around much?

    My DD is out of her bedding a lot, but so far she doesn't seem to wake up due to cold. She seems to pull the quilt back up if she gets really cold. If it starts becoming an issue, I'll dress her more warmly. Sleeping bags wold be fine with a kid like her though, because she won't get out of bed until someone comes in to get her up (a pain with using the toilet, but that's another story :P).

    You can get one piece sleep suits with legs - my 3yo loves hers. She can do somersaults in bed and is still toasty and warm and she can toddle around wherever she pleases with no danger. Ergo do them as well as snug time and uh-oh and others

    I had one for my 3 yr old... I think it was Woolbabe or something like that... it was huge and was for 2-4 yr olds.

    I put my dd (2.5) in a 'onesie'. I put her singlet/pj's on first, then the fleece onesie. It gets really cold here and she always stays nice and warm. I got mine from target but I'm pretty sure big w/Kmart have them too. It's similar to this but her has inclosed feet. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1430432054.630473.jpg
