    Default What does your baby wear to bed in Winter?

    DD is 9 months old. Weve lived in a VERY warm climate and have just moved back to Perth. Ive never had a winter baby and im wondering what you ladies put your kiddies in when you put them to bed in these winter months?

    DD doesnt use a sleeping bag as she sleeps in a Wrap Me Up swaddle though im looking at getting her out of this if I can.

    Cheers!

    Go invest in a sleeping bag /sleep suit for Bub to transition into from the swaddle. We are in Sydney and temp I wright gets down to 16 recently. I put 14 mth old in 3.5 tog sleeping bag with light cotton winter pjs underneath.

    My tip would be to get the 12 mths + size as they grow out of them quickly and they are expensive for the good ones (but worth it).

    DD (20mo) is in flannelette PJs and her sleeping bag. There's a blanket in her cot that she likes to have but rarely stays on top of her. When it gets colder I'll add singlet and socks or a long sleeve fitted shirt under her PJs if needed. We have a small heater with thermostat for her room too but only use it when it's really cold.

    DD slept in a wrap me up until after she turned 1. We had one with the zip-off arm bits and used that to transition her to sleeping with her arms out. We still use it (with arms out) as a backup when her sleeping bag hasn't quite made it through the washing pile in time for bed!

    As babies my children were in singlet, fleecy all in one and in sleeping bag.

    Now my youngest who just turned 2 in winter will be in singlet, bond all in one and flannel pjs that way if shirt creeps up the back and chest aren't exposed to cold air and socks can't be kicked off.

    We're in canberra and have already had nights down to minus 2 degrees. We have ordered some 2.5 tog gro bags but at the moment have our six month old in a short sleeve body suit, long sleeve/legs suit, a wonder suit and a sleeping bag. We then tuck him under flannelette sheets and a blanket.

    we'll be investing in a timer heater for winter proper! And maybe a 3.0 tog suit as well!

    At the moment it's chilly at night where we are but not super cold yet. I bought some Grobags off eBay - definitely check them out there if you want Grobags, they are so much cheaper and seem to be completely original and are brand new. I got twin packs for around $50 delivered. DS is in a singlet and long sleeved snap suit with the 2.5 grobag and when it gets colder I'll put him in a thick cotton onesie with or without flannelette pjs over the top, depending on how cold it is!

    As its colder at our place at the moment with nights DD goes in socks, trackies, singlet, long sleeved tshirt, jumper and a thick (2.5 tog) sleeping bag.

    If its quite cold she'll wear leggings and mittens as well.

    This will be our bub's first winter (she's 7 months old). It's already getting chilly, and her sleepwear so far can include up to socks, singlet suit, all-in-one with mittens and a 2.5 tog sleeping bag. For when it gets cooler, we may add some pajama pants & long sleeved top, and then will put a heater in her rom f that isn't warm enough.
