DD's room was 18c this evening but it has dropped two degrees to 16c in the past few hours. She is in a long sleeve vest, sleeping suit and a 2.5 tog Ikea sleeping bag. As the temperature fell to 16c I added a blanket. She is 17 weeks old, so we are still new at this and are struggling to figure out and find the right balance between temperatures and clothing, particularly now that the weather is cooling. Any advice on judging clothing would be greatly appreciated.

(And not to hijack your thread. But I've found quite big discrepancies over sleeping bags labeled 2.5 tog. Some use quite thick warm material, where as, I have found other bags from the same brand manufacture, are thinner and cooler. It seems the standard tog measurement is anything but standard, which makes it even harder to judge if your setup is correct.)

It has gone down to 14 degrees in DS's room (he's nearly 14months). We put him in long sleeved vest, cotton sleepsuit, fleece sleepsuit and two 2.5 tog sleeping bags! He still felt cold this morning confused Not sure what else we can do as blankets won't stay on

My DDs room is around 20 degrees when we put her to bed but will drop a bit through the night. She has cotton pjs or sleep suit and a 2.5 tog grobag. Will start putting a vest on her too as the nights are getting colder!

DS room is around 18C dropping to 16C during the night. He sleeps in a long or short sleeves vest, fanelle type sleepsuit, a walking sleeper and a 2.5tog sleeping bag. Plus if needed I have a blanket to put over him.
