Alex has been able to climb out of his cot for a few (3?) months. However not (yet) in his grobag. He sleeps in his grobag always except for one nap a week (we get back from swimming and he is already asleep): that nap I keep a careful ear out for him waking (he hasn't attempted to climb out after it yet - more likely to want to climb out BEFORE a sleepnot afterwards). He had a fever (102) a couple if weeks back and we put him in his 1 tog grobag (normally in 2.5 tog in the Winter) just in a vest - he was fine and not sweaty.
All children are different. At 22 months he has been self settling for two months and I am BEGINNING to think that he may be sensible enough now to stay in bed. However we are going away on holiday in Jan (the day before he turns 2) and we want him to stay in a cot whilst we are away (for containment - we will be staying in a house, then in an apartment). So we intend to put off taking the side of the cotbed down until after we are settled back at home again (so near 25 months).
Thanks QTpie. I can always count on you for good advice.
I think we must have quite similar little ones!
I think I will see how we get on this week. I've just ordered 2 new grobags as he is about to grow out of the 6-18 month ones. The only thing is they are not cheap and if we are considering taking the side off, I think I will need to put him in a duvet! So I may as well send them back!?
Hmm what to do?
My only concern about taking the side off, is that he will fall out when he is asleep as he moves around so much!!
Then the other thing is what kind of duvet and bedding to buy?! Xx
We've had the same problem and were going to take the sides off but feel that he's still a little young and doesn't like sleeping under a duvet. We've kept him in his grobag and have no problems with him attempting to climb in it. We used to just put a cover over him for naps but now he's in the grobag for them too. xx
