I only bought mine over this winter, but just came back from a holiday in New Zealand and used it there even when the nights were warm and she didn't seem too hot. I think sheepskin is supposed to be one of those natural temperature regulating materials that don't get too hot or too cold.

Was just reading this thread and the sheepskin blankets interest me for my 18month DS. This might be a stupid question but do you use it even in summer? As in, would it be pointless buying one given that (hopefully) spring isn't too far away?

Where could I purchase the sheepskin blankets as would probably put under a sheet.

We have (non-fitted) flannel sheets for the cot. But they were handmedowns so well used the labels no longer have writing so I don't know where they were from.

I have a sheepskin on top of the sheet and dd settles really well on it. Not sure what the guidance is re SIDS, but I've got a short clipped one that is supposed to be safer for babies to sleep on. I only started putting her on it when she was much older than your baby though - not sure I would have felt confident at 20 weeks, but as pp said, you could try it under the sheet.

she seems to, certainly sleeps well in her cot, but tbh we have never tried her in the cot without it, so I don't know if the sheepskin is making any difference.

I have a sheepskin under DD's sheet which makes it much softer... worth a try?

Any recommendations would be helpful. My baby doesn't like his cot much! I just wondered if anyone knew of safe,cosier sheets for him to lie on (currently have jersey ones from mothercare). I am aware of SIDs guidelines but just wondered if there was anything on the market I could try. He lies in his moses basket during the day on a fluffy, polyester blanket and loves this but not sure if this would be safe to use at night? He's 20 weeks old and a big baby.
