    Default Sleeping bags and toddlers

    Ok so my son is 18 months and I really want to get him a sleeping bag or 3. For this winter as he doesn't keep his blankets on and he moves about his toddler bed at night, but how will he get out of bed and things like that etc? Is it too late to start zipping him in one? How will it work?? Any advice or tips would be great thanks

    We went from using sleeping bags to the sleep suits with feet in them. We found we could put plenty of layers underneath if necessary too. I think at the coldest we even put two sleep suits on them, thermals and a set of normal winter pjs.

    Target usually has a range of them in sizes up to infants school, though we find we stopped using them on our eldest once he kept the blankets up.
    They are great when transitioning from a cot too as the kids are still learning to stay the one direction in the bed!

    Our youngest is also 18mths and getting to the limits of the sleeping bags, just getting big bed stuff sorted for them ready to do the switch.

    I agree with the sleep suits from Target. DS1 didn't want to be in a sleeping bag from around 16 months onward.

    My son is nearly 3. The previous winters we have used sleeping bags (pumpkin patch, bonds or just from Best n Less). This winter as he has gotten bigger/older we've brought him the ones with legs/feet from Target. They work just as well as the sleeping bags, he tosses & turns a lot in his sleep & hardly ever keeps the blankets on so they help keep him warm during cold winter nights (I usually have him in a singlet + flannelette pj's as well).
