What do your young dc wear with their sleeping bag?

I know it's been done before but I'm trying to work out why my 11m old dd is waking up in the night crying hysterically. It goes down to 18.3 in her room at night and she wears a long sleeved bodysuit, a sleep suit and a 2.5 tog sleeping bag. Her hands feel cold (I know that's meant to be fine) and her back just feels a normal temp but maybe she's a baby who likes to feel toasty? Obviously I don't want her to overheat! Our last place was a hotbox new build so this chilliness at night is a new thing.

Teeth! Clothes sound fine. Teeth and bad dreams produce that sort of clamour

Yeah I did wonder about teeth..it's just she's only got one bottom one and it really didn't give her any jip so I presume it's the other one coming through if it is, also no other teething symptoms! That's good that her sleeping outfit sounds ok though thank you!

This is useful to refer to

At 18 degrees I'd be doing 1 layer less than that (no bodysuit) so I doubt she's cold. Is it a recent thing? Could be coming down with a sore throat/cold or something?

Same temp in our room and baby wears a long sleeved vest, baby grow and is in a 1 tog sleeping bag.

I'd be a bit warm in that. I still check the back of my DD's (18m) neck to see her real temp as I find her hands and cheeks can be cold but she's actually cooking. Our room goes to a bout the same and she's in a short sleeved vest, long sleeved vest/body suit and pj trousers with a 1 tog bag.

My 5mo is in a sleep suit and 2.5tog bag. I don't know exact temperature of her room but we live rurally in a very old (350yrs) house so I imagine it goes coller than 18deg. However, we do co-sleep for much of the night so that's always warmer.
