I have a grobag thermometer next to dd's moses basket in our room. The last 2 nights it has been on 25 degrees at night! We have had her in just a babygro with no covers which she is happy with. If it gets a little cooler we just put a sheet on her but still no vest.

I have done same though it has made him even worse with legs out of cot. I have been looking for a cotton sheet gro bag sort of thing but cant find one.

I put DS in a vest and light trousers a couple of nights ago but he didn't seem to like it, woke up shuffling around a lot... so last night did grobag and nappy - with the grobag unzipped at the bottom so his feet could stick out - much better, he slept well apart from getting stuck rolling over hmm

I got a sheet sleeping bag from jojomamanbebe. Bumpto3 also do 0.5tog bags - you get a 10% mumsnet discount with both of them too.

Ive put mine a vest and then put him in a pillow case. Our room is unbearably hot!

ds is just in his vest!! very hot at the moment!!

just a nappy, and even that I was eyeing in the heat of the night...It was sticking to his skin. We co-sleep, so when it gets cooler, he snuggles up to me.

I've put my ds in travel cot in my room as slightly cool than his (currently at 28. Just put nappy on him, may move him into his room in a bit if it cools down. Its way too hot at mo!! Tomorrow suppossed to be hotter hmm

I cut a head hole and two arm holes in a pillowcase.

Looked at 0.5 tog bags today even those seemed thick. Would like a very thin cotton one - thickness of a sheet maybe. If was more talented and confident I would make one from a pillow case. What is the thinnest sleep bag anyone has found?

Jo jo Maman Bebe does these sheet ones.

Tesco does sheet ones for £4 or £6 (can't remember the price)

nik76 Sun 27-Jul-08 08:15:53

Nappy and a vest top - it was 27 in our room last night!!!!

Have to put a light sheet over her legs if not in grobag otherwise she can't sleep for playing with her feet!!!

moocowme Sun 27-Jul-08 08:37:14

are the Tesco ones 100% cotton? if not polyester would trap in a bit of heat and moisture.

PurlyQueen Sun 27-Jul-08 20:01:38

The Tesco ones are pure cotton

Thank you for the info, unfortunatly, I cant find the Tesco ones I've been in store and have tried on line. Has anyone a link?

We got a 0.5 tog sheet sleeping bag from John Lewis. I think it is a grobag.
