One more question

Dr, my 20 month daughter just does not want to be covered with any blankets at night. She sleeps in her a vest and winter pj''s. She even pulls her socks off and just wants to cuddle up to her doo doo blankie (nappy) and her tea bottle. I get up at about 2 to check on her and her feet are like two blocks of ice so i try and sneak a blanket on her but it isnt 10 minutes and she cries and kicks and once i take the blanket off she goes back to sleep or is very irritated with me but i am so worried that with her phlemmy chest that she gets sometimes it is gong to get worse with her getting cold. Should i just leave her?

Many children are intolerant of heat and of being overdressed or covered with blankets. She should only wear cotton clothing.Do not overdress her and only cover her with a light duvet at night.Do not use heaters in her bedroom.
