    What do you dress newborns in over the peak of summer?

    DD was 4-6 months corrected over summer and we constantly had her in singlet suits or singlets and nappy covers and that's about it for the Perth summer.

    This bub will be born mid-December and I know that brand new newborns need a little extra than slightly older babies, but how much? A long sleeve bodysuit instead of a singlet suit? Or a lot more?

    TIA!
    I have been wondering the same thing... but for QLD. I thought the covered onesie for in hospital due to the aircon and being Summer it will be quite cool and I know I'm always cooler in hospital.

    My DD1 was born at the end of Feb and I don't recall having to have her in too many layers apart from in hospital but that is the end of Summer in QLD.

    The general guide for dressing babies is what you're wearing plus an extra layer - usually a light wrap in summer. The reason bubs in SCN are bundled up is a) the air con and b) their immature systems that are still learning to regulate their temperature. Term babies have got that down pat within the first few days of life, so don't need to be bundled up as much.

    Hope that helps
    This exactly for my WA summer bub. Often she'd be wrapped at first so just a singlet and nappy. She hated being wrapped until the weather cooled down though.

    We had evaporative cooling.
