Thread: How do I keep her warm?

  1. #1

    Default How do I keep her warm?

    I know that this has been posted before but I just can't seem to find the previous thread .
    So, I was wondering how do I keep Olivia warm overnight? I've tried the sleeping bags and she screams the house down until I take it off so they don't work. I go into her just before I go to sleep and cover her up with her blankets and tuck her in but she is just such a wriggler that I can't keep her covered. I really want to get this sorted before the freezer winter nights.
    Any suggestions ladies???

    best & less has some "sleeper suits" that are polar fleece, large, designed to use instead of blankets. About $30 - I have a couple, they're great.

    I don't know really - I just feel Pip's tummy to see if he's warm enough and he's usually toasty warm, just wearing a singlet. If he's not then I put on another shirt the next night ... They are good though, we also use them when taking him bushwalking in his bjorn, just add a beanie

    ETA - these do have legs, they're like a bonds wondersuit but with zipper and feet and made of double layer polar fleece. The brand name is Snugtime

    I use the polar all in one pjs too, I get them from target and they have two differnet thickness, one is polar fleece and the other is polar fleece with a blanket lining.
    Both my kids still kick there blankets off and refuse to sleep under cover, i find these with a singlet underneath does a great job.
    My DD is 9 and has just grown out of her last one. My DD is 4 and still has his for cold nights.
    They are great as they have legs the kids can still get out of bed and go to the toilet, not something you need to worry about for a while. I have used these since mine were little though, they come in sizes 000 up to 8.

    Hope this helps I know how hard it can be with bubs that dont like to be wrapped or covered.

    Okay what does TOG 1.5 mean??

    These snuggle time ones look great, especially with the cotton inner lining. I'm definitely going to search for these. YAY!!!

    TOG refers to the temp range. 1.5 is 20-24 deg.


    Jols - where's the outlet for them?

    Dan, I have the same problem here. And it doesn't seem to matter that she is FREEZING - she will not keep her covers on! I just bought some suits from Target which are like their sleeping bags but are one pieces so she can crawl and walk in them. On really cold nights I will put something light underneath to keep her extra warm but for now I just use the suits...

    P.S. I think the suits were about $15 on special
