    My 6 month old hates being wrapped and hates sleeping bags so I put her in a singlet, body suit or flannelette pjs + socks and she has flannelette sheets, quilt and then a soft polar fleece type blanket over top of that. If its a really cold night she also has a long sleeve onesie on between her singlet & pjs.

    Also between her mattress protector and fitted sheet I have a thick blanket as one thick blanket under neath is the equivalent of 4 blankets on top.

    Just in case people are looking at this thread for suggestions, SIDS recommends babies not to sleep on a sheepskin rug.

    When DS was born it was late winter and I had him in a singlet, long sleeve long leg onsie, mittens, swaddled in a warm and strechy wrap, then tucked in tightly with two warm blankets doubled over. Always only to his armpits as to not cover his face. Room temp dropping to around 15.

    My DS is 9 months now, so a bit easier to keep warm. Our room is around 18 at the moment and he's in a long sleeve no legs onsie, terry towel long sleeve long legs onsie, 3.5 tog sleeping bag.

    As PP said - SIDS have excellent info on their website.

    I have a 5 month old and I dress him in a wondersuit with his hands covered, and a sleeping bag I got from Target, on a cold night I put him in the sleeping bag with long sleeves, on a not so freezing night I use the sleeveless one. It's been getting down to 1 degree where I am at night so I usually end up putting a crocheted blanket MIL made over his legs.

    I put both of my babies in sleeping bags - with a singlet and wondersuit. Merino Kids' Grobags are fantastic. They are a bit on the expensive side but definitely worth it for the quality. It gets very cold here. Last winter my eldest was 10 months old and I put him in the sleeping bag with a cot sized doona over him. You can also get arm warmers to go with sleeping bags - which are like a little balero jacket with warm arms.

    I always used a beanie for my two June bubbas, helps keep the body heat in... and I was usually beside them so however many layers/blankets I had on would be what bubs had.

    SIDS also recommends that babies Do not sleep with beanies on. Heightens the chance of overheating.
    My 9mo is in a long sleeve onesie, thin cotton jumpsuit, then a really thick jumpsuit (similar to a doona suit) with a 2.5 tog sleeping bag. His room gets down to about 12 degrees. He sleeps in till 7:00-8:00ish. Took me a little while to figure it out but we got there in the end!! He's a cold sleeper like me!!
