how do you dress your child for bed in the in-between weather?

I was wanting to know because I have been dressing my almost 2 year old in pants & a long sleeve shirt & sometimes a jumpsuit with legs, feet & long sleeves. However when I dress her in this, it's still quite warm & she works up a sweat but during the night, it gets quite cool & she has a tendancy to kick her blanket off. She is just getting over the flu for the second time in 3 weeks & don't want her getting sick again before witer hits

My son will be 2 in a few weeks,I know exactly how you feel! My son has been sleeping in sleeping bags off and on from the start. I've seen my different companies make similar products, but there is only the one that I have seen that is for bigger then about a 6 month old. The ones I have and LOVE come in a light weight which just 2 pieces of a light fabric sewn together, the heavier weight they refer to as a regular weight is more like a quilt, with the 2 pieces of fabric and a layer of stuffing in between. These ones come in 4 sizes: Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large. My son currently wears the medium sized one in the regular weight. The zipper in them is backwards, starts at the neck and goes to the feet, which is great for that age because they have a harder time getting out of it. They say it's that way so it doesn't bug baby at night. If you would like to see the website for the company that I bought mine from, message me and I'll send you the link.

When I was a kid, I just had regular pyjamas or nightgowns, that I wore all year. Maybe a fleese-type one for extreme winter, but otherwise, just regular stuff. However, during the seasons I'd just pile the blankets on, or throw the blankets off. So rather than adjusting the sleepwear, I just used more or less blankets.
