    For all those with LO's in cots/cot beds who use sleeping bags...

    If LO is in a sleeping bag do they still need to go feet to foot? What do you do?

    Ruby uses a sleeping bag and dont think it matters where u place them in the cot if they use one as there is no risk of it covering their face xx

    If using blankets as well then def put at the base of the cot for safety. Not sure if blankets should be used with sleeping bags tho as may over heat depending on thickness? Not sure tho xx

    You don't have to unless you're using blankets as well (as there's nothing for them to get under at the bottom of the bed) but once they start moving they often manage to wriggle upwards, so it might be a good idea to start her off at the bottom so she doesn't end up with her head right up at the top with nowhere to go if she moves a bit!

    Sam ends up all over the place now so I just stick him in the middle, as he'll never be in the same place by the morning! x

    If you use a sleep bag you are not suppose to use blankets, and it doesnt matter where you put them because there is nothing to go under or get caught in, but if you use a blanket they have to be feet to foot so they dont wriggle under it.

    Jess has a grobag and I still put her foot to bed. She sometimes gets swaddled.

    Regardless of whether I cover her with a blanket or a grobag she goes foot to bed- i get extremely worried and consious.
