What do you put your LO into to sleep?

OK, so Freya has taken a dislike to her sleeping bag. Luckily it's been warm enough not to worry about this over the past few weeks and she's been fine in a vest and PJs.

I thought I'd found a solution in a lovely 2.5 tog sleep suit from Mothercare which I turfed out tonight as her room is only 19 degrees. Well, you'd have thought I was trying to murder her, she hated it and had a major tantrum while I tried to wrestle her into it and she wasn't happy once it was on either. So, that's going back.

I tried a sleeping bag again but she wasn't happy about that either and I had to take it off before another big strop ensued, especially as I was literally about to put her down.

A blanket is no good either as she gets cross with it and kicks it off so now I am wondering what on earth I am going to cover her up with once the nights really start to cool down! Any suggestions gratefully received, I was hoping to hold off on a duvet for a bit longer as she's not two until November but maybe this is the next course of action? DH says she's turning into a Bohemian child as she hates having socks and shoes on too and will just about let me put them on so she can go outside!

She's been waking up the last few nights and ended up in bed with me and I am wondering if it's because she is getting cold. Argh!

Kj now just goes to bed in pjs and a quilt but he is older than Freya.

When he was her age he had one piece fleecy suits. We let him pick his own and he loved dressing up as iggle piggle and fireman Sam. He hated sleeping bags once he could walk cause they restricted him too much. Great for Cobi and your new one though.

Do you think she might like chossing her own?

If not can you get thicker pjs or a long sleeve t shirt underneath and thick socks?

I normally find kj wakes if he's got cold feet.

DS has always got too hot in sleeping bags and so we tried blankets but he is happy with nothing. In the warm weather I put him in short pjs and long ones when its colder. Most nights when I check on him as I go up to bed he has removed the top or bottom!!! I put a blanket carefully over him without waking him and as he always wakes before me in the morning I am not sure how long he keeps it on!!!

Thanks Ladies! Gemma, I was just thinking letting her choose something might be a plan or I might try and track down something with a character I know she likes - Everything's Rosie would be a good choice I reckon!

I'm going to try my old quilt that my grandmother made me tonight. It's not too big and it's lightweight so she won't get tangled in it and it will be easy to kick off if she doesn't like it.

I don't know, there's always something isn't there, we'd thought we'd got her sleep sorted at last, oh well...............................

I switched to duvets just before my LOs turned 2. They were always kicking them off and then waking me up in the night to cover them when they got cold. Things have got better since I bought straps from Jojo Maman Bebe which attach the duvet to the cot. It's not perfect, and when they are messing around before going to sleep they still kick them off, but once they are asleep the duvet does tend to stay on. They have also just about learnt to cover themselves up.

babygros done up backwards, (ripps his nappy off in middle of night) in colder weather and vest in warmer. no blanket sleeping bag just either my duvet (sleeps with me) or a sheet. theyre actually quite warm but very lightweight. but mmost nights he has nothing cos he spends a lot of the time kicking them off then it disturbs him and me. the cold doesnt seem to bother him

Another couple of things to consider - sleeping bags with feet (they're called dream genni). My LO wears them and I love them.

Also the Gro Company do stay-on duvets with zippers and poppers so they can't kick off the covers.

Good luck!

Thanks all!

I've seen the stay on duvets and think they might be the best thing to try, Freya has an issue with things on her feet so am not sure a sleeping bag with feet would be any good.

Hey ho, it's warmed up again today so looks like we'll be OK for a bit again now!!

Gracie - the dream genni's don't have feet, they are more like sleeping bags with legs. They are like padded jumpsuits. Sorry I didn't explain better before.

Also I just found online that you can also get duvet clips. Works for duvets or blankets and seem to work pretty well.

It's duvet clips that I was referring to. Not perfect, but not bad.
