My girl so far has not regularly used a sleep cap. She goes to bed with her hair in whatever style it's been in during the day. We always have to touch her hair up in the morning, whether it was loose in bed, or whether it was 'up'. It gets rubbed and matted or fuzzy while she sleeps.
I know it's pretty common to use a sleep cap, but I have always had my doubts. I'm not convinced they really do much for the hair. Besides, my girl is a toddler, how would we get one to stay on her? Months ago we did try a bonnet style sleep cap and this is what happened.
The cap ended up down over her eyes and nose while she slept. Yikes! Even though she can easily breathe through the fabric, it still made me nervous. We haven't used it again.
So, I am open to hear your arguments, for and against. Do they work? What kind do you use? If you don't use a sleep cap, what do you do instead?
