    Default Blanket question?

    This is something I've always wondered. DS is a good sleeper now but he still wakes up once a night in order for me to put a few more layers of clothes on him.

    See, he goes to bed in a onsie usually. If I put anything more on him he would be sweating. But then half way through the night he obviously cools down and needs a jumper and socks or something over the top.

    This totally doesn't bother me but I'm just curious as to how other 2 year old (or babies for that matter!) ever sleep through?? Do they just get put to bed with very warm things on or do they know how to use a blanket if they wake up cold???

    Thanks!

    DS goes to bed quite warm with heater on if necessary. He has just figured the blanket thing out in the last month or two though (he's 28 mo)

    Have always kept a heater in my kids rooms until they worked out the whole blanket thing, which was usually about 3-4 years old.

    Not my kids but my friend's oldest DD goes to bed with blankets, she's about 2.5. When I babysit her I put her in pjs then a blanket over her and she sleeps through with no dramas.

    My 26 month old sleeps through.

    We are still using Grobags and he still sleeps in a cot.

    He sleeps in the appropriate TOG rated bag for whatever time of the year it is, we just adjust his underclothes appropriately to suit the temperature.

    my 21mth dd sleeps through but she does get cold. I do nightshift and when I get home I check on her and she's all curled up and cold and I can hear it in her chest when she's had a cold night. I told hubby she has to go to bed in warm clothes from now on...it's hot when she goes to bed so he puts the fan on then turns it off when he goes to bed. She doesn't like blankets, hates her feet covered...none of my kids covered themselves with a blanket until 3 or 4 yrs old.

    My DS is 2.5years and has started sleeping through the night about 4 months ago (woohoo!!!!!!). He goes to bed in pjs and has his doona on. DF or I check the doona is still on when we go to bed and he sleeps through. He does know how to pull his doona back up if it moves off him and he wakes. Could you add an extra blanket when you go to bed?

    Exactly this. Blankets never stay on and after I put extra clothes on him he jumps into my bed for the rest of the night.

    With my kids if its cold they have winter pjs then ill add a winter body suit or sleeping bag and socks before I go to bed, if I have t put it on before. Heaters are on to take the chill off the rooms though.
