    Default Best type of heater to use in Bub's room

    My 13 month old DS has trouble keeping blankets on. With it getting cooler now we have him dressed in a few layers, and then a particular blanket which kind of grips to him so it doesnt come off when he moves around, but his room is getting quite cold now, and he is waking up in the night.

    I am wondering what the best/safest type of heater I could use in his room that would be ok to leave on all night to keep the temperature warm enough and constant? Oil, panel, ceramic etc??

    Also, at what age did your bubs work out to pull the blankets up on themselves if they realised they were cold??

    My 22 month old DD still doesn't (to my knowledge) know that putting a blanket on herself keeps her warm.

    Dd didn't start pulling blankets up until she got into a big bed at 2.
    We had her in a sleeping bag (and now the new bub) until 2 with a water column heater.

    I've always used a oil heater in bubs rooms as apparently they don't suck oxygen out of the air, an they turn themselves of an on to maintain the same temperature.
    I have a four year old who still kicks all the blankets of an use to wake up cold an come an get into my bed now have found onesies at target that go up to a 6 an he sleeps all night yay!!!

    There is an econo heat panel heater that is only 400w and is safe to touch for kids. It can also be painted to match the wall. That's what we are getting to take the edge off. DS is also in a 2.5tog Grobag.

    We used an oil column heater for both our kids during the night in Melb but in my experience it was far too expensive so we wrapped them up as warm as we could and turned it off - our bills were massive.
