    We live in a very cold place (-4 only the other night!). DS sleeps in a singlet, flannelette pjs and a winter sleeping bag, and we have a small column heater on a low setting in his room overnight.

    We also have central heating that is set to 16 degrees overnight, but as our house is well insulated it hasn't come on yet overnight.

    We had an energy audit done last year - the woman who did it said that she would recommend a column heater as they're cheap to run.

    We don't heat overnight, and it gets pretty darn cold here! We've had several -4 mornings already! I just dress the boys in singlets, socks and flannelette pyjamas. They have a woollen blanket and 2 quilt/doonas on their beds. They haven't woken up cold yet

    I found the oil heater used less if it was left on the lowest setting throughout the day (move it to another room if you need other heating). It's the heating from cold that uses the electricity, not if it's on very low all the time and just heated from there.

    I use a column/oil heater in DD's room. It think of them as the heating equivalent of the slow cooker because you can touch them without risking a burn, and they don't dry out the air in the room.

    Small fan heater with temp control so it switches off when it's warm enough and on again when it cools down

    I'm from the uk and we never had any heating on overnight! When we visited recently it was freakishly cold and Our toddler slept with me, in normal pjs and a dooner. How are dooners unsafe for toddlers? Infants of course but 2.5 3 year olds?
