We haven't put the heater on yet (in Adelaide and her room hasn't gone under 19 yet). We will set her room to 20 this year I think. The heatermate will cycle the heater on and off to maintain that temp, last year we used a convection heater but it needs replacing and I think I'll get a panel heater.
DD is in a wondersuit and 3.5tog ergopouch sleeping bag. Also have a 3.5tog plum sleeping bag with arms. Prefer the ergo as the filling is cotton not polyester. The ergo website has a good temp guide with what clothing to wear.
Also get a groegg so you can easily check temp.

We were in Canberra last year. It was cold starting in March. DS was around 4 months old. By April, we'd perfected our technique. We had DS in a bonds zippy, a singlet, and a 2.5 tog sleeping bag. Around 2 am I'd fold the mitten parts over his hands. We put an oil column heater in his room with a heatermate, set to 21 degrees. We also put a smoke detector in his room. We essentially left the heater on 24/7 (except that the heatermate did it's thing, so that was fantastic).

For an Adelaide winter I would put my girls in a singlet, onesie, swaddled and blanket over the top as well as the heater going. If you don't have ducted heating or a good heater, just a little column heater with the bedroom door left open should be enough.

I don't think it's really cold in Adelaide yet, like tonight is not that cold. Unless it's just me.

Thank you for all your replies I've finally been able to read them.
Bubs is already wearing a singlet, bonds wonder zippy, swaddled then knit blanket folded over then her Quilt tucked in to the cot.
I'm going to buy a gro bag and buy an oil heater. We have 2 split systems and a gas heater but her rooms down the back so she'll freeze.
Thank you everyone

Dressing bubs for bed in winter help
Within the last month we've started using the Ergo Sleep Suit and think they are amazing! The 1.0 tog has short sleeves, and the 2.5 has long. The best thing with these is that they convert from a bag, to legs once bubs can stand (like ours). They're also generous sized and can be worn for a long time.
Baby Bunting has the 1.0 tog on clearance for $49.95.
