i found an awesome way to keep the covers on my messy/reckless sleepers.
it also makes making the bed soooo easy. called bedbelts and they have a website or you can get it on amazon too.

Like we are saying, even though our children are big movers in bed, it hasn't been a "problem" that needs fixing.
You are actually bordering on soliciting since you keep raving about it. Are you involved with the company?

I am a nurse, I learned the first week of school how to tuck a sheet and blanket. If you don't want to deal with sheets and blankets, then use a bottom sheet and a duvet only. Then in the AM you only have to straighten out the comforter. Worked for me for 10 years.

This is a forum, not a blog. There is a big difference.
A forum is where where people discuss things and ask for help. A blog is where you post your own ramblings and people either read them or not.
I wasn't rude, I was just explaining that you were bordering on soliciting (promoting a product or website for your own profit).

Actually, this isn't a blog site 😋

You need to cool off. No one was rude. You are on an international forum for mothers. We tend to call things as we see them. It is not unreasonable to presume one is soliciting when they keep pushing a website that sells things.

wow, i'm done. i have nothing to do with the company and i wasn't trying to push it, just sharing (isn't that what a blog is all about?) and OF COURSE its (bedding falling off) not a problem for most people. sorry if i was too responsive to each persons' replies, was trying to be kind. i don't think i'll post on this again.

What a ridiculous waste of money. I guess if people are gullible enough to buy it though... good for the company to rake in the bucks. Personally speaking... my kids have always been major bed movers until they are really too big to be major bed movers (my 8.5 year old is still all over the place). No big deal to me... in almost 15 years of parenting it's never been a 'problem' needing solved.

Actually, I did go look at the website and it has this video on it that shows how to place the strap on the bed and then how to make the bed using the strap. I still think it is a waste of money because it did not look that secure under he underside of the bed.

I searched "bed belts" and it came up with straps that hold people in the bed.
I wasn't attacking you, I was saying I couldn't stand to be strapped into bed.

LOL...well, once you actually explained yourself, it's entirely a different story!

We already had elastic straps that had clamps on each end. Made up the beds, clamped each strap across the corners and were good to go. I never thought they had an official name 😉

They made a variant in the 90s for cinching back tunic dresses.

Anyway, that makes sense now!

wow, not a very nice "circle of moms" here... don't attack if you don't understand. go to the website yourself and see bedbelts.com - not for everyone but has solved my problem and a few others that i know

ok, i did not explain this well. the child is in NO way being he'd down or touched or anything by the bedbelt -- its the sheet and blankets that are secured at the foot of the bed so they don't completely fall off the bed when/if the child kicks or moves around a lot

sorry but i have to respond...no one is being tied down. the blankets and sheets are held in place at the bottom of the bed so they don't completely fall off the bed

Can't see any reason to strap your kids into bed. I had one that would wrap himself in his blankets no matter what the temp, and one that would(and still does as an adult) kick the blankets off within minutes. It actually isn't good for your body to be restrained in one position all night. It causes circulation problems.

IMO...waste of good money

I actually couldn't think of anything worse. Most people move in their sleep so why tie them down?
As we get older we learn how to keep the covers on or roll over without losing them.

true for babies/toddlers but for older kids (and adults I guess) the bedbelt works great

A zip up fleece sleeper works just as well to keep a baby warm. This IMO is a waste of money.
