My child has recently started pulling her bottom sheet off the mattress and sleeping completely underneath it. She often gets quite tangled up, and wakes up crying and sweaty. Seeing her completely underneath the sheet with her head in the pocket is so scary to me, and cannot possibly be safe. To curtail this behavior I have tried bribery, time-outs, removing privileges, all to no avail. She continues to pull the sheet off and wraps up in it every night. I have seen some suspender-type products online claiming to keep all fitted sheets on any bed, but I am skeptical. Plus, I don't know that adding a strapped object to this already dangerous situation is the answer. She pulled her old mattress pad off and got the strap twisted around her neck about a week ago. I have since replaced that mattress pad to one without any straps.
Can anyone recommend a SAFE product to help keep my child from pulling her sheets off her bed at night?
