My 12 wk old's grobag is still wet after washing and it's boiling in my flat. Her monitor says its 27C in her room. There's a fan on and an open window.

I just put her in bed in just a nappy and am wondering whether i need to cover her more. I dont want her to get too hot though. I'm in the middle of London on the 7th floor.

is this ok, or is she gonna freeze?

check her a bit later, and if you have a cellular blanket then add it when it cools down.

I'm in London on 6th floor and DS is down in just his nappy. This heat is stiffling....

It is fine.
27 degrees is hot and it is much better for the baby to not overheat.
Just keep an eye in case it cools down.

My bub was just in his nappy last night. When it got a bit cooler in the middle of the night I popped him in a light sleeping bag, but he didn't seem to notice.

12 week old DS was just in his nappy last night- was in his babygro to start with as previously he's not been able to sleep without wearing something, but he woke up in a state at 2am (which is unlike him), so I stripped him and he eventually settled. He's in nothing but a nappy for most of the day, too.
I normally love hot weather but this year is awful as DS is so grumpy in the heat. He wants to be carried around everywhere but then gets too hot and cries, then cries even more when I put him down to cool off- I can't win!

I've used a big muslin as a blanket in the past

I have to put a vest of light sleeping bag cos DS pulls his nappy off!

JoJoMamanBebe do sleeping bags made of cotton sheet material, which I used a lot last summer for my LO, although he slept in just a nappy a lot too. Can't do link thing, but should be OK to find on JoJoMamanBebe website and search sleeping bags.

gosh yes. 27 degrees is so hot! DS's room is that at the moment and in summer he's always just slept in a nappy (hes 2 now so its his 3rd summer)

When he was teeny I'd cover him with a muslin because I'd struggle (I still do!) with the idea of not covering him up. I just wouldnt direct the fan right on her in case that chills her too much.

I'd go for a light covering tbh eg sheet or loose babygro. According to my doctor, a baby's core temperature can rise when their skin is cold/cool as their body thinks it's colder than it is and heats to to compensate.

Tis fine... agree to check later though and maybe add a light sheet.
