    Default Bedding for winter newborn

    Curious to see what everyone dresses their newborns in?

    We live in Melbourne and its starting to get really cold at night. We put bubs in a singlet, wonder suit with hands covered and two cotton blankets but I'm so unsure if she's warm enough. She kept us up from 1 to 5 this morning

    I would look into getting some sleeping bags (or swaddles if she's swaddled), anywhere from a 2.5 tog +, then a vest and wondersuit under it.

    I have a six month old. I dress him in a singlet or short sleeved onesie a grow suit or similar and a sleeping bag because he kicks Off blankets and hates being wrapped. I have a cotton blanket and a crochet knit blanket On top of him, I usually put them back on a few times a night. Last night was crazy cold in Melbourne!! I need some warmer jarmies!!

    I think what you dress them in depends a lot on what your room temperature is.
    Sleeping bags can really help to keep the temperature consistent from night to night if they kick off blankets.
    I don't think what you've said would be warm enough unless your room was really warm.
    My boy was in singlet, singlet suit, wondersuit, wrap and then several cotton blankets folded over to make them doubled up over his body (was in a bassinet to start with, so made it a bit more cosy). After he kept taking his arms out of the wrap, we used a lightweight sleeping bag with blankets instead.

    I had a gro egg in the babys room so I could see at a glance how cold it was. We used gro bags and I swear by them.

    Also - make sure you are checking if baby is warm by putting your hand down the back of their top. Their little hands will always feel cold and you can easily overheat a baby.

    Our room temp has been hovering around 20 degrees. I'm so worried about overheating her, it's so hard to get right.

    My bub was a newborn last winter and our nursery was around 19 - 20 degrees. I dressed him in a singlet, suit, and 2.5 tog sleeping bag. We also got an oil heater to put on in the early hours when the temperature started dropping. Hth

    I have a 7 week old... I dress her in -
    Singlet, long sleeve, wondersuit,
    Woombie, sleeping bag and blanket.
    I'm in Vic too and the nights are freezing.
    She sleeps 2 x 5 hour blocks overnight.
