Which is better, a sleeping bag or a quilt?

January 6, 2009 8:19pm CST
We usually use a quilt for the kids, only to find in the middle of the night, the boy is sleeping sound without anything on the back, and the quilt at his side. A sleeping bag? Too warm and guess no good to skin breathing, so to speak, unless extremely cold. What is your choice, and how to avoid the quilt skipped aside?

My son has a sleeping bag that he got for Christmas. He loves to sleep on the floor with it. He normally sleeps in shorts when he is in it, so he does not over heat. When he is in the bed I tuck the fitted sheet in between the mattress and box springs so he cannot pull it out and have it not cover him.

I use a quilt to cover my child she is three years old, however I was once told that quilts for children under 1 year old is not recommended. This because if a baby is feeling hot he dosen't know how to take it off, which can lead the baby to breathing problems. I recomedd a quilt for toddlers, it is true that I find it running about however she calls me to cover her up when she is feeling cold.

If I am at home, I would prefer a quilt, if I am camping, I would prefer a sleeping bag.If I were given a quilt, as I have none, I would most likely use it. If it were a very pretty one or was one handed down in the family, I would put in on a decorative quilt rack and keep it nice rather than use it.
