DS (28mths) will not keep his sleeping bag on now so I need to make the move to regular bedding. He is still in the cot and I plan on keeping him there as long as I can. He is only small for his age and is not climbing out yet so I don't see any reason to go to a bed yet. I haven't been putting anything on him the last few weeks as the nights have been so warm but it feels like tonight will be cooler so I think he will need something over him, probably just a sheet.
Any tips for keeping it on him or transitioning to regular bedding in a cot would be appreciated.

What I found worked best for DD was using a single bed sheet folded over in two, then tucked in tightly underneath the cot mattress, it goes almost all the way around.

DD3 started taking her sleeping bag off around the age of 2, in summer I would use either just a sheet or just a lightweight blanket. As it started to get colder I dressed her in more and used a heavier thickness cot quilt - no other sheet or blanket. I found that with 2 or more sheets, blankets etc she just got tangled and they never really stayed together but with just one blanket she tended to stay under it and would pull it up over herself.

Tried a cotton blanket last night but he freaked out so ended up taking it out again.

Have you tried the suits that are like jumpsuits with the legs on them that could be an alternative that way he will get use to free movement but still feel secure if that's what he likes
