    I've now put her in a singlet, short sleeve legless bodysuit, wonder suit, flannelette wrap then her bed has sheet and two cotton blankets.
    I'm so paranoid of her being to cold or to hot.

    If this is room temp overnight there is really no need for so many covers and clothing. Basically the rule of thumb is whatever clothing/covers you have, plus one layer... 20-22ºC is perfect room temp.

    Eta- sorry I ment to say 16-20ºC.

    Also, if too cold, bubs will more than likely wake up, so you will know to put more on. Better to go that way than risk over heating.

    16/18c is ideal temp for sleeping ..for both adults and infants

    for this I would put a newborn in singlet/onesie and 2.5 tog grobag (or something equal in warmth)

    Yes I know they wake for many reasons... but a cold (not freezing obviously) baby/child will more often than not, wake uo because of being cold.

    I have my baby in a terry wonder suit and a sleeping bag. Not sure what to do in winter yet, it is still about 12 degrees here overnight.

    It can be confusing! I was confused before I discovered the wonderful concept of gro-bags, gro-eggs and thermostat controlled heating.

    I set the heater to 20 degrees, put bub in a long sleeve onsie, 2.5 tog sleeping bag an bub sleeps through everytime.

    If its colder when bub goes to bed ill set the heater to 18, dress bub in a long sleeve onsie & pyjama top, and 2.5 tog sleeping bag.

    The gro-bag website has clothing guidelines that are easy to follow... As long as you can control the room temp.

    Good luck
