How do I stop my 2 yr old from kicking off his blanket?

He is very tall and about to grow out of his sleeping bag any day now. Unfortunately they don't do the bags any larger which means I need to start using blankets but he keeps kicking them off when he sleeps and because he is sleeping he is too drowsy to pull it back up over him. I have tried tucking the blankets into the sides of the bed to stop them from moving but to no avail. This kid is a kicker.

I don't want to buy bed rails because this would prevent him from falling which means he will continue to keep rolling in his sleep which would mover his blankets.

  • Ya, thick jammies. My kids wore those sleep sacks until they learned to walk in them! I can relate!

  • Sew him a "sleep sheet" out of flannel. Buy double the length of blanket you need, fold it in half and sew up both sides, kinda like a large pillow case...super easy, even if you have to sew by hand.

  • I would say warmer jammies too ! We put DS in long sleeves and long pants Pjs , because we like the air on and the fans going while we sleep.

  • There is no way to stop someone from kicking off the blankets unless you want to just sit and watch him sleep all night... Warmer Pj's are a must!! haha. :)
