W has always had a sleeping bag and I've felt much happier with that than blankets as worry about them being over her face etc.
she doesn't like blankets. If we're say cuddled up on the sofa she won't have one on her, won't even tolerate it just over her legs, do I've been in no rush to take her out of sleeping bags and using a duvet.
bit the last two weeks she has been taking both her sleeping bag and pjs (either a onesie or two piece) off every night. I go to check on her an hour after bed time and she's always out of them both, so I put her back in but in the morning she's always stood up in her cot in just a nappy and vest.
so I'm thinking it's time to try her with a duvet then at least if she gets cold she's able to put it back over herself.
I'm worried about it though, don't know why really, but if anyone has any tips or advice-
shes just turned two, in a cot bed and still has the sides on
what tog duvet do you use? Do you use a pillow too? W moves about all over her cot so I'm not sure how practical that would be

JT, no advice sorry but will be watching this with interest. E is 17 months and is almost growing out of her grobag. I've been debating whether to get her the 18-36 size or start trying her a duvet/quilt/blanket. She's a total wriggler and moves all around her cotbed so not sure what to do!

LO had a duvet and big girl bed with bedguard just before her 2nd birthday (sides been off cotbed for a few months before this). Tips for duvet - we have the duvet the 'wrong' way round - so the long sides are where short sides are should be iyswim and we jam the edges of the duvet down side of bed and bedguard - this means if she wriggles, the duvet doesnt move too much but also becuase its the wrong way its not tight across her and there is plently of 'give'.

Thanks HF. Does she move about much in her sleep? W moves all over the place, normally ends up turning 360 degrees a few times so I don't know how a duvet and pillow will work? I'm scared of her ending up with her head under the duvet

Yes, she can be a bit of a wriggler - she does turn 360 etc - she got 'wrapped' up the duvet a few times - sometimes she has woken (a rearrange and holding her hand until she nods off again usually fixes it) plus i always pop in to check her duvet status before going to bed myself. I have found the pillow on the floor a few times - i dont know if she has got underneath it or what - but she has obviously managed to sort the 'problem' herself!!

We use a 4 tog single quilt and tuck loads of it under the mattress to make it fit. M still kicks it off so we go for fleece pyjamas, vest and socks, seems to do the trick. We tuck her in before we go to bed, then she's usually fine. She's never went under the quilt and she's had a quilt for about 2 years. She's also had a pillow since she was just over 1 and has been fine with it.
