This is a question about how to put the baby in cot to sleep at night. I ask this because I recently come to live in Melbourne from a hot tropical country and had a baby here. Now, I‘ve been advised to keep the room temperature around 16 C to 20 C and put one extra layer on baby than I would for myself. But the problem is, since I got used to hot weather, I heavily dress myself even when room temperature is 22 C, when most other people find comfortable to be in. I definitely don't want to dress the two month old one that way since she might get overheat.
Could someone please explain to me how I should dress my baby at night and how many blankets to use on her so that she wouldn't get too hot at night. I keep the room temperature around 19 C or 20C all night long.
Also, she is comfortable to play in her terry towel overall at night. However when she sleeps in cot in same exact temperature, I feel like I need to put extra layers on her, but it's really not necessary, isn't it? I feel this way because when I am go to bed to sleep I need quilt to be comfortable even though the temperature remains the same.
I have never seen raising a baby in temperate weather and have no clue if I am doing the right thing. Thanks heaps for your help. It means a lot.
