    If it's 24 in his room now at 9.30pm then I wouldn't be adding any blankets at all if he has a singlet suit, a long sleeve suit plus the 2.5 tog sleeping bag, that seems like quite a lot? But I am in Qld where temps are pretty constant over night though.

    I obviously don't dress my kids as warmly as others! It's 24 in DD (5 months) room, dropping to about 21 early morning. She's in a long sleeve/leg sleep suit and a 1 tog Grobag. No singlet or vest underneath. DS (2.5) is in long sleeve/leg cotton (tshirt material) pjs. He sleeps out of his doona too.

    As far as I was aware you definitely shouldn't use blankets on top of Grobags.

    My dd has always slept with a long sleeve body suit ( the ones with no legs) and just a 2.5 tog gro bag. Her temp in her room is usually around 21 - 23 degrees. But I also found out of the 2x 2.5 gro bags I have one is thicker feeling than the other. She has slept with this from six months. I think maybe you are putting to much on bub. Does bub wake up feeling hot? Check out the sleepstore site & this gives you recommendation on what to put on bub with gro bags. As others have said gro bags arent designed to put blankets over them. You will eventually work out what is right for your bub. I know I was a bit confused in the beginning also until I started her on gro bags.

    According to the gro-bag guidelines that is way too much...

    I would dress bub in a long sleeve (only as the temp may drop to 22, if it wasn't for that I would go sleeveless) legless onesie and a 1.0 tog
