Stinx wears a sleep sack for naps and bedtime. I am starting to wonder when I should transition him to a normal blanket. His room is freezing cold, even in the summer, so I like that he can't kick the blanket off. Should I wait until he moves out of the crib?
I think I'm a little attached to the sleep sack due to emotional/personal reasons.
When I was about 14 I started sleeping in a sleeping bag. Every night. People told me it was weird but I didn't care. It must have started after a camping trip or overnight youth group event. It wasn't a short phase either. It lasted all through high school and even the beginning of college.
I moved to Winnipeg at 19 and stayed with a wonderful family. After a few weeks of living there, the mother asked me carefully if I planned to stay. She wasn't sure why I was still sleeping in the sleeping bag on top of her nice guest bedding. I had to explain that I was a weirdo. But I gave in, moved my clothes out of the suitcase and into the dresser, and rolled my sleeping bag up, and for the first time in 5 years, slept under the covers. I remember thinking it was strange. But I was adaptable. And I did so quickly.
The following summer was when Dad and I got married. Friends teased me about our future bedding. "Should I buy you a double person sleeping bag?" I thought it was a great idea. No one did though. So Dad converted me into a "duvet" person. And that's the way it's been since.
