What does your two-year-old sleep in? (PJs and what kind of blankets or bedding.)
Up until recently, I still had R. in a large sleep sack. When he outgrew that, I decided not to get the toddler size. We don't have a comforter in his crib (yes, he's still in a crib) because he moves around too much. He has a blanket, but he just wads that up and cuddles with it.
I finally bought some fleece footed pajamas to use in place of the sleep sack when the colder weather hits.

C sleeps in cotton long sleeve 2 piece pj's from Carters. She is in a full sized bed with only a fitted sheet. She won't keep a blanket on. So I think we'll probably end up doing fleece pj's once it cools off.

With my daughter, we ordered giant sleep sacks and she slept in them until she was almost 3. DS never really seemed that attached, so we put him in a large one of hers if we're camping or something but he has recently started covering himself up with a blanket, so we don't really worry at home. We have some fleece footy PJs for him in cold weather and my DD still loves those, but DS seems to care more about the characters rather than the style, so I also just put him in pants and shirts that are too stained to wear out or just loose cotton pants and t-shirts.
A sleeps in a regular full size bed with a sheet and soft blanket. Usually he just uses the blanket- he's like his daddy and doesn't use the sheet! He sleeps in short/ t shirt pj set. As weather cools we'll transition to long pants then to long sleeves, and eventually into fleece pants for the winter. We probably won't change the bedding since he hardly even uses it.

brachysira, I really contemplated buying a bigger sleep sack. I still might if it gets really cold this winter.
Sounds like I am not totally out of the norm by not transitioning to a comforter yet. He's still in his crib because he hasn't tried to climb out yet, so I am perfectly content to let him stay in the crib until three.
J is still in her crib, too, because she hasn't seriously tried climbing out. We're talking about converting it to its toddler version soon, through, and I just bought a comforter for her yesterday. She doesn't sleep under a blanket at night, although she usually keeps one over her during naps. Her 2T footie PJs are already too small - the feet are too short! - so well either have to size up on those again or get 2 piece fleece pjs for winter. Right now she just sleeps in cotton PJs.
And we're going to try using a flat sheet, but I'm not sure how much she'll fight that and the comforter. She tends to toss and turn and flop like crazy before she falls asleep.
Do people usually use sheet-blanket-comforter or skip the blanket? I can't find any in small sizes, but we keep our heater relatively low at night in the winter and I think she'll need that extra layer.
We cosleep, and DS sleeps in just a diaper until it gets very cold. He is a hot body like his daddy. When I do put PJs on him it will be two piece cotton. Fleece is way too hot for him, and if/when I decide to nighttime potty train I wont want to deal with a one-piece. He has some fleece one piece hand me downs that we will use for stay at home, cuddle inside days.
Also, he loves being covered up and snuggling in the blankets, but since he has been in our bed all this time, he is used to having them available.

DD sleeps in her crib steel with a blanket that she just snuggles with. She sleeps in two piece cotton pajamas on a fleece crib sheet. Her room is hot so I don't push a blanket. And she still wears a sleep sack, size xl, but she unzips it.

DD sleeps in two piece Carters jammies (not the slim fit ones, I hate those with a passion) and with a blankey. She is in the crib but we have talked about transitioning her to a bed as early as this weekend. In her bed she will have a flat sheet and comforter.
We've been doing two-piece pajamas lately--short sleeves and either shorts or pants right now and we'll pick up some warmer stuff for fall/winter. He sleeps with two of his baby blankets in his crib, but isn't too interested in covering up with one yet.

LO wears 2 piece pajamas. We switch up shorts vs pants depending on temperature. I will most likely add zip up fleece pjs to the mix once winter hits. LO is still in crib (we plan on converting crib to bed in a few weeks here) and he sleeps with 1-2 blankets... Sometimes we'll try to tuck him in but that doesn't always last.

Right now he's in one piece or two piece lightweight cotton pjs. Once it's winter, I'll switch to fleece...or so I hope. He's been hating on any PJs with feet lately, so that might not work.
He still uses a sleep sack, but I think he's getting too old. He loves them, but it just seems babyish? Maybe this is all in my head. I might switch him to the fleece toddler "sacks" with feet holes. They're basically a heavier one piece PJ. He still flops around before he gets comfy and he sleeps on his stomach. There is no way he could bounce around, lay on his tummy and then cover himself up. And, I need a cooler house to sleep so I won't be cranking the heat. I think the toddler sacks will keep him warm and I might start throwing a small blanket in with him to get used to the idea.
Oh and he's still in his crib. He hasn't climbed out yet, so I'm in no rush to switch him. If he's still in the crib next spring/early summer, I'll change it to a toddler bed.

inaya, I bought 4T fleece footed pajamas for just that reason. They will be a bit big, but I had a feeling the 3Ts wouldn't last long!
briarrose, I didn't even think about the one-piece jammies and nighttime potty training. Ack! We're not there yet, but that's good to consider.
peachesncream, The slim fit PJs drive me nuts, too. R's arms are too big for those! We also have a lot of two-piece pajama sets that fit great on the bottom, but the tops are too short for his long torso. So annoying.
weeklyplanner, That has been my exact thought process with the sleep sack. It seems babyish, but then I think it's really practical. Sigh.
