A pillow helped DD2 to lie straight - but do you realise that you can get Grobags to fit up to 6yo??! OK, we didn't go that far, because it's a bit tricky for TTing, but definitely to the age of 3 1/2 for DD1 and 2 1/2 for DD2 (dropped them at the same time, after last winter).
As for blankets, we use blankets with a top sheet, tucked in to create a similar comfortably snuggled sensation.
DD2 does sleep a bit sideways still, which is rather tricky as winter is coming on, but extra layers of clothing should help with that. Also, I check on her and adjust her before I go to bed, which helps. Perhaps you can heat the room slightly so it takes the chill off?
