    These are all great tips, thanks ladies! Looks like I might be adding a thermostat controlled heater to the list of things to buy! I also like the idea of changing the nappy in between the feed so you're not waking bubs up with the cold just before putting him back to bed.

    And this!

    I've got another winter baby coming, so I'll be doing it all again soon

    Brisbane here, DD born at the end of April so we were doing feeds thru winter.

    I had bub in a bassinet next to the bed and we just snuggled and fed.

    Oh and nappy changes happened in bed too. I just kept the wipe close to me for a while so it warmed up.

    This!! Our little man was born in June last year, on the coldest day Bris had in a billion years or something . We co-sleep so it was/is really easy to just wear a feeding singlet to bed and just snuggle in and feed him lying down. If I had to change his nappy, I actually slept with a clean nappy in the bed with us so it was pre-warmed, and would change him quickly partially under the covers after the first boob and then after the second boob he was all warm and full and snuggly, so he'd drop back off to sleep .

    I had a Sept baby so it was pretty cold here! I have a nice warm dressing gown, so would put that and uggies on when I got up. Nappy change was quick, and then I would cover us with a blanket like PP's have said.

    We could also set the gas heater to come on and off, so once we had an idea of when DS would wake, we set it to come on half an hour earlier so the lounge room was warm when I got up. Before then, I would turn it on on my way to get him and put it on boost. Within 20 minutes the room was warmer.

    For baby sleeping, just swaddling and then a blanket folded over and tucked in well. If you put the length of the blanket across the cot, you get heaps to tuck in and I always felt he was safe. Once he started rolling, we switched to Grobags.

    I am a co-sleeper and all nappy changes or anything took place in bed.

    Hi Artful. I also live in Guildford & had a winter baby (June 2010). Am guessing you probably live in an old house too? We had bubs in our room & used an oil heater which I placed nearish to her cot & closed our door to keep the heat in. We also used a gro-egg to keep an eye on the temp. When she woke for feeds during the night I would get up put a cardigan on (I usually slept in a feeding singlet & pj pants) & change her nappy then re-wrap her and snuggle up in bed for a feed. Sometimes the temp would get down quite low even though we had the heater on but that was rare & I'd just put another blankie over her if it did. Hope that helps. I might see you around town !!

    Thanks Pdogsmum! It's strange how cold Guildford gets compared to the rest of Perth isn't it! I will keep an eye out for you around town, I will recognise you by your dog lol

    Good luck with your second bub!!!!

    My bub was born in September2 years ago and it was still really cold at night. Id put on my fav dressing gown for night feeds (I still have it. DD who is now 2 still has a piece that i cut off the bottom as her special sleep blankie) as well as have a blanket on the couch ready for extra warmth. She always slept in a sleeping bag so was warm anyway. Next bub is due this May. He will also go into a sleeping bag and i will just go back to wearing my trusty warm dressing gown with the bottom missing but Ugg boots will make up for that this time around.
