    Default Sleeping bag, doona or blankets sheets

    Dd is 18 months old and in a big bed. She currently uses sleeping bags and can hop out of bed and walk in the them but trips sometimes. Just wondering what you use for your kids at this age and whether I should swap her to a doona or sheets and blankets?

    Me too I tried a sheet over the sleeping bag the other night so DS could get used to being tucked in and my god, what a tanty he threw!

    I'm subbing to this topic because I suspect my 18 month old is going to be in a cot and sleeping bag forever - so I'm curious as to how the transition works!

    I was thinking of posting the same question! Our boy is also 18 months. He used to spin around in his bed during the night but now stays mostly with his head at the top near or on his pillow. And with the weather getting cooler I was wondering at what age people start using tucked-in sheets and blankets. At the moment he just sleeps with a loose blanket/comforter.

    I don't know if this helps since my boys were still in the cot at this age, but they were in the sleep- suits you can buy from places like best and less etc. it kept them warm until they learnt to utilise blankets themselves, which wasn't until nearly 3. But they can walk in them so were great. I plan on doing the same for dd.

    So they would have in the middle of a vic winter: nappy, singlet, fleecy pjs, sleep suit. If it was particularly cold I would go and pull their blankets up but didn't usually worry because they were warm enough without them.

    sleep suits

    You can buy just fleece or lined fleece. And several layers can usually go underneath.
