How do you keep your toddlers warm at night? IDK if socks and long johns will be enough at night. They don't keep their 4x4 blankets on. Bigger blankets maybe? :(

Those things are expensive! $8 at Walmart and I'd have to buy for twins. $8 for let's say 4 each, they can.wear them 2 nights since they bathe every night and change in the morning. That's $64!!! $36 isn't so bad, but twice that amount is like...stfu! Lol

Warm footie jammies, here! My kids are 4 and 5 and still wear them October to April.


Edited to add...i have to buy two sets, too...you can find carters two packs at Walmart for $9-$10. I don't buy those anymore but they are a good deal.

If they kick off blankets, its probably because they are warm, so whatever you are doing now is fine :).  Unless they are complaining that they are cold

Footie pajamas or long pajamas with socks. We also keep a space heater in the bedrooms just at night so the temperature never drops to low in our rooms.

How old are your kids?  That makes a big difference.

 


My boys are now 3 & 4.  Last winter we used heaters in their rooms to keep the temp higher (older house with regulation issues.)  This year we are not using them--they are starting to use blankets (large, normal size ones.)

Yes, try Walmart.  Also, you can always find them super cheap at the end of the season.  Children's place has them as cheap as $3.  At least you'll be prepared for next winter.

The twins are 18 months, #3 is 4 months. They don't kick the blankets off, they don't know how to keep them on.
