    Default Room temperature

    Whats the best room temperature for a bub wearing a 2.5 grobag with singlet and onsie? It says 18 degrees on the packing but brrrr, I'd be chilly wearing just that!

    My DS wears basically the same but with a flannelette sheet & a blanket. Without the extra his feet were cold in the morning :s
    He's 16 months though so he's able to cope with blankets etc now.

    My DS would be ok with 18 degrees wearing that

    Default Room temperature

    I would go on touch, if bubs hands face or neck are cold or hot and dress appropriately... Packet suggestions are just that and everyone is different. I use to take DD's temp to check and make sure she was warm (she was premie and had a hard time keeping her temp) I can tell now by touching her neck if shes cold or warm, to us 18degrees would be cold.

    That's what it is in DD's room too. We do singlet, wondersuit, flannelette PJ top and socks with a 2.5 tog Grobag. Her hands are cold, but her body is toasty. It's more essential their torso is warm than their limbs.
