    Seeing as I cant afford multiple quilts at this time, i bought both Top and Under rated for 0*.
    My logic being that i can easily vent my under, and i can leave my top off until i get a chill.

    I took my ten year old out for her first over night and i used the spreader bar. That way she could hold my hand till she fell asleep and i could peak over and make sure she was doing alright.
