    Default What do you cover with your bub for sleeps?

    I am in Brisbane and unsure what to cover my 7 month old with for night sleeps. When I put her to sleep around 6:30 it's still not too cold but during the night, around 2, 3 am it gets quite chilly.
    She sleeps in a one piece coverall, so long sleeves and feet are covered.

    I have 2.5 tog Grobag which is probably great for the second part of the night but if I put her in it when she goes to sleep, she starts sweating on her back and chest. And I really dont want to wake her up in the middle of the night to put her in the Grobag.

    So right now she has a blanket over her but she keeps rolling and crawling all over the cot and keeps getting uncovered and wakes up cause she is cold during the night.

    What does everyone cover their bubs with?

    I use a oil heater for winter so I don't have to worry about temp. Otherwise I just dress warm .

    Im in brisbane also. DS3 goes to sleep in an all in one with the fan on. I turn the fan off when I go to bed. Works well for us.

    I think the love to dream company do a 2.5 bag that has areas you can unzip so it's just mesh - means bub would have a more breathable bag for the start of the night then you can zip up the mesh when it starts getting cold

    Wow I only put mine (17 months) in a short sleeve bodysuit with long pants over them at the moment (Brisbane too). It's about 24.5 degrees in the room when she goes to sleep. Not enough?

    Hi all, jumping in on this topic, my bub is now 5 weeks old and getting out of his swaddling wrap nearly every night, I have been looking at the swaddle bags online and either getting a Wombie or the the Love to dream swaddle up. Does anyone else have one ? Any recommendations ? Or advice ? Thanks
