Do you have radiator on in baby's bedroom?

I go between turning it off and turning it up... little one sometimes seems to cold, but also I know sleeping with the radiator on isn't nice from my own experience. Gah! What do you do?

Not. We do keep a small oil heater in ds1's room for the colder nights though becauwe he has a sloping ceiling with no insulation and it can drop to 12 or 14 degrees in the middle of the night.

In our DD's bedroom the radiator is on the lowest setting when the heating is on, just to take the chill off and then we have a little heater that we can put on overnight if the temp is particularly low (we have sash windows, so it can get chilly).

No - sometimes I put a fan heater on in the morning when I get her dressed etc though- but really it should be 19 degrees for sleeping, there a bouts. I also have underfloor heating which is very hard to adjust suddenly - not like with a radiator, because it takes ages for the floor to cool down. grin

Ours is on low - but we have an old solid walled house with no potential for cavity wall insulation or whatever and the temperature dips up and down quite a lot otherwise in the bedrooms. Radiator's the other side of the room from the beds and cot though.

Yes ours us on, dd wakes if its cold.

I think it depends on the child.

Ours goes on for 40 minutes every 2hrs to keep the room at about 18 degrees. If we don't it drops cold later in the night

We have an oil filled radiator that comes on when the temperature drops below a certain point. My dd is probably unusual though, as she loves to wear as few clothes as possible but have the room all toasty.

We leave it on but hearings always off at night and intermittently during the day! We had a for egg when he was a baby though and his monitor tells the temp too! He tends to sleep best when it's 19.

We switch ours off at 7pm, some nights the room can be a bit chilly, sometimes it's a bit too warm - doesn't seem to have any impact on his sleeping (but I'd always err on the side of too cold rather than too warm)
