My 2 yo is scaring me

My dd will be 2.5 in November, and lately when she goes to sleep she has to pull her blanket over her head and sometimes bury her head under her pillow. She can't breathe very well as I can hear her labored breathing and she also gets all sweaty. Besides taking her blanket and pillow way, what else can I do to keep her from doing that? Her blanket is a single fleece kind and her pillow is an adult size, but very flattened. I've talked to her and told her that its dangerous to do that and that she will get too hot. She doesn't do it for naps, its just at night.

Little kids sleep in all different ways lol I wouldn't really worry. I wouldn't think she would actually suffocate herself, but I guess I don't know, and as for being too warm, some kids can sleep through that and some wake up and uncover a bit. As far back as I can remember my dd has wrapped her blanket around her face and head and never straggled herself, I don't really worry.

My almost 5 year old DD does the same thing. Usually during naps she says that it is because she cant sleep if it is not dark. At night, I thonk it is more of a fear of the dark. She feels safer that way. When she falls asleep, I chesk on her and she is usually uncovered. I wouldn't worry either.
