Do you move your sleeping child?

My child ALWAYS wiggles out of the covers during the night and usualy has turned sideways in the bed -- Do you take the chance of waking her to move her back on her pillow and straight in the bed or do you just cover them up where they are and leave them sideways?

  • My husband or I always straighten our 2 yo and replace the covers before we go to bed. Even if he wakes, he just smiles at us and drifts back to sleep.

  • My older one is a heavy sleeper so hubby will move him, but the younger one is just covered up and let be.

  • I just cover him up and let him be... He would just squirm in the next ten mins anyway! He is a little wiggle worm in bed!

  • I leave them unless they are on the edge where I think they could fall off or likewise hurt themselves
