Tyler's room gets cold. while he likes the cold, he does not sleep through the night well if he gets cold. His knees start to ache and they wake him up. He can't stand those blanket sleepers, even with clothes under them. He actually would prefer to sleep with NO clothes but shorts on. He can't stand sweatshirts for sleeping, though he will tolerate sweatpants. I am leary of heated blankets, mostly because I remember the "hot spots" that they always got when I had one (one area much hotter than other areas - mostly due to improper use, but how do you keep an 8yo from using it improperly?). I don't have a problem with heated mattress pads, but he gets too hot, even on the lowest setting, then throws off his covers, and we are back at the start. I would use polarfleece for sheets if he would sleep on it. Texture problems. He will tolerate flannel bottom sheets, but not top ones. I have a tough time even getting him to sleep with a cover at all. Until he gets cold and then wanders at night. any ideas?
