I'm a little confused on what ds should be wearing at night. He is waking at night for a feed and some nights he quite restless so I'm wondering if he is hot or cold.
im located in lower w.a his room usually starts at 25/24 when we go to bed then drops to 22/23 by 3ish .
he is in sleeping bags should I be using a 2.5 or 1.0 tog?
he wears a long sleeve and long leg jumpsuit with nothing under it, a 2.5 tog bag then I have a blanket over the top in the early morning if it drops to 21.
he is small bub , he is 6.5 months old and just hit 6kg Also teething and just got his first tooth !!
Any help would be highly appreciated 💕

temp wise I think its okay maybe a little too hot? ( not that you can do much about that) I know in the winter I turn the ducted heating down to 17-17.5 degrees as I find we all sleep better, is he sweaty when you get him up?
i would be blaming him being hungry or even teeth for his waking,

I think gro bag guide would say just a 1 tog?

It not necessarily the tog rating they can be adjusted for different temps. If you look on gro bag site they will prob say 1 tog is optimum but you might be able to do a 2.5 tog with say a short sleeve onesie etc

Yeah I thought maybe a 1.0 tog ?

I'm in Perth and I've got my 11 week old dressed in a long sleeved singlet, a long sleeved onesie and a warm blanket and his wrap. ATM (630 Pm).
Later I'll add layers coz I'm already cold in my shorts.
Was considering the 2.5tog bag too but can't coz of his wrap but I have a little quilt I'll cover him with.
I'd add a warm blanket on your little fella as well personally, but that's just me.
He's in the bassinet beside my bed so I can keep an eye on him with the quilt on .

It really depends on your baby. Just like adults some babies will be warmer than others. I think that the only way to know is by trial and error (within reAson of course)

This weather is so difficult! The nights start out mild but around 1-2am temp drops right down. Tonight I have my DS in a long sleeve pyjama top and flannelette pjs with a 2.5tog as tonight it's getting down to 13 degrees. He starts off hot but it's good for the drop. I actually can't wait till it's cold all night so he can be comfy all night
