    i was just wondering what you all do when your LO get to the stage of kicking their covers off at night, amy has done this quite often now so we use the grow bags...what do you all use?

    Yep, gro-bags / sleep sacks rock! You can get cheaper ones than the gro-bag brand which are good quality.

    I always wait until Savannah is properly asleep and then put her blanket on her. Seems to work. Am considering trying the sleeping bags though.

    Brooke hates blankets and she doesnt like growbags much better tbh, so i just make sure her room is slightly warmer as 99% of the night she sleeps with no covers

    Jack's a kicker, we just tuck his sheets in under the mattress and put the blanket on top. That's working for now, but as he gets bigger and stronger it might not!

    Jack wriggles and kicks them off too, I tried waiting till he was asleep and recovering but he still kicks them off, I too make the room slighter warmer and put him socks under his babygrow and scratch mitts on and he sleeps with covers off most of the time

    i put him to bed and cover him up with the covers...his ritual is then to kick them off and make as much noise as possible....when i go to bed i cover him and turn his little heater on (i bought the one with a thermostat on and if anything touches it it goes off..one of the safety ones) i only put it on number two to take the chill off his room in the night, seems to be working well so far but i did use grow bags when he was smaller

    We use grobags, but it's been to hot in our house recently even for the 1.5tog ones so I just put him in a thick sleepsuit and he seems happy enough - he goes 10 hours through the night with no probs anyway!
