  • Mine is 11 months...she HATES blankets. So I never put one in there, I just halfway close the vent in her room so it doesn't get chilly

  • My dd is 20 mo and will kick it off if she's too hot or if she wants to see her toes. She tries to put it back on but I still go in there and cover her up before I go to bed. She likes to sleep in just a diaper.

  • My 20 month old won't keep a blanket on him period. I never let him sleep with one until he was about 18 months anyway, but he prefers not having anything on him. He sleeps in pajamas. During the summer it's either light pants and a t-shirt or shorts and a t-shirt. During the winter, he sleeps on the long-sleeved sleepers with feet. He's plenty warm so a blanket isn't necessary.

  • If it's summer and gets hot at night, my toddler will kick off his covers and I'll let him sleep that way. He's usually in a diaper and tee too. During the winter we have to do the footie pajamas because he also hates covers and won't keep them on. He gets really mad when I try to cover him!

  • Yes, just like adults, some of them prefer not to have covers.

  • Mine sleeps in onesies in the summer, and footies in the winter and ALWAYS kicks off the cover, and sometimes takes off the clothes too.

  • My son has never slept with a blanket on, and in the summer heat I have been putting him down in just a t-shirt and diaper to keep him comfortable.  He sleeps through the night just fine and doesn't seem to mind a bit.
