DS is 2.5 and sleeps at the mo in jarmies and a vest or a fleecy all in one,
he's sleeps on a fleecy blanket as the sheets used to wake him up as they were cold, and has a duvet as well (which I usually put over him when I go in if not before) it's a 10 tog I think - a childrens standard single sized one.
he seems warm enough for the most part, but i'm worried as the winter draws in & nights etc are colder if I should have more on him - ie another fleecy blanket on top or if indeed I can use a hot water bottle with him?
typically I would have had the heating on low but this year the heating is off from 7pm when he's in bed and then i'm reliant on blankets etc.
also worried re over heating - how much of an issue is that in this age?
I think it depends on where you live and on the individual child.
we're perched by the atlantic sea and its v cold. DD is wearing pj's and fleece all-in-one, with 2 duvets. DS never feels cold and is in pj's and 1 sheet and 1 duvet. (to put it in context I'll be in tshirt, fleece pj's with duvet and heavy bedspread)
