    Thanks guys

    Weve got the transition wrap me up and ive got some 2.5 tog grobags in the cupboard. I think i might try to get her into them before it gets much colder. Sounds like layers are the key here. I'm not sure i'd be happy leaving the reverse cycle heater on.

    I can't put blankets over her as she's SUCH a little squirmer and does laps around the cot over night!

    Gosh i'm so used to a warm climate!!

    Singlet, socks, jumpsuit (with hand mitts), flannelette pyjama's.

    Goes on in that order and comes off backwards as it warms up.

    So i'd agree that layering is the key.

    Those of you that use mittens how do they stay on?? I bought some from mungo very thick and warm but ds just pulls them off.
    He wakes in the night and his hands are freezing!
    Those that don't use mittens.. Doesn't your bub wake up with cold hands?

    To answer the op
    I put ds 1yr old in socks a fill wonder suit and a sleeping bag at the moment in perth. Last night I did put his heater on for an hour though at 3am as his room was so cold

    When it gets really cold I put him in his long suit with socks and a jumper beanie and sleeping bag and a blanket over him which doesn't stay over him long but I think just being in the cot he can snuggle it for warmth

    Near Brisbane here it's going from hot afternoons (30) down to 8 degrees at 4am! DS (7 months) goes to bed so early so it was still hot and it's all very confusing! Hahah.

    Basically he wears a long onesie (with feet), and a singlet, and he starts off in a 1.0 tog sleeping bag (or NO sleeping bag, depending how how it is) and then at the midnight feed he goes to the 2.5 tog sleeping bag and the heater goes on.

    A little cheap oil heater with a thermostat is the best thing I've ever done for my babies' rooms. Keeps it at a stable temperature all night.

    Hubby's trying to put her down for her nap in a 1.0 sleeping bag at the moment - we've decided to try to get her out of her sleep suit. Its going to be so much easier.

    Yeh i have no idea how we're going to go with keeping mittens on....sounds like a challenge in itself!

    Weve got reverse cycle air con in her room and i could put it so it adjusts depending on the temp of the room but i think i'd be worried about her getting too hot. Maybe in the peak of winter it could go on for an hour or so. She doesn't feed overnight so its not like im going in during the night either.

    Layers it is! And hopefully her grobag

    pisang- We only used mittens if it was freezing but when we did, we waited until dd was asleep.

    I'd go check on her once during the night to make sure they were on before that morning cold snap comes on.
    If it was just a bit chilly we'd cover her with the mitts of a wondersuit

    Great idea about waiting until they are asleep! Atleast that will keep them on until he next wakes.
    I was just talking about this with my mum and she said put socks on his hands! He would still pull them off but they might stay in slightly better hmm.. Bit of experimenting tonight!

    We used 'mitten sleeves' for dd last year as a newbie after getting fed up with normal mittens. Google sleepy wings, its the same people that make them
