    Default Question for parents who do NOT use blankets

    If it gets colder in the middle of the night do you change bub from thin sleeping bag to a thicker one or do you start with the thick one? Say it's 26 degree right now and I'm about to put DS to sleep in an hour & it'll get to 15 degree at 4am. If I put him in the thick sleeping bag now he may get overheat but if I change him he will wake up and be restless for hours. What do you normally do? Ta

    I usually put the thinner one on with long sleeved cotton PJs.

    I put sheets & balnket over DS sleeping bag around 11pm. But he hates the feeling of the blankets so he ends up crying out 20 mins later and kicking them off.

    DS kicks blankets off too. Tonight is the first time it gets that cold since he's born and i'm worried how to dress him properly.

    We have done both. Swapping sleeping bags went ok and it's probably the better option given the risks associated with over heating babies. The times we used the heavier bag up first, bub just got too hot and woke anyway!

    We used to leave DS p.j pants off and then put them on before bed

    In the middle of winter though he gets extra blanket layers on top of his sleeping bag

    I play it by ear. Sometimes I start with the warmer one if it doesn't feel to warm in his room. It cools down quick. Otherwise I keep a long sleeve pj top close by and when he wakes I slip that on over the top. I find it less disruptive than changing his sleeping bag

    i put my girl (5 months) in a light sleeping bag and about 2/3am if she wakes for a bottle and it's cold, i put the little baby size legwarmers on her arms.
    it saves me having to change her but warms her arms up. it was an idea one of the ladies on my facebook group came up with and works a treat!

    if it is quite cold, i put a light blanket over the top of her (tucked in at the base of the cot of course).

    We used an oil heater in the room and tried to keep at a constant temperature. In winter we used long sleeved long legs, or for warmer winter nights long sleeved short leg under sleeping bag, and then would turn the heater on when I went to bed.
