DD, just 10 days old, has a sleeping bag. The room she is in in showing 20 degress. Last night she was in a babyvest and babygro and slept fine but do you think that's too much really? Should I ditch the vest?

I think I'd keep the vest just now - it still gets cold in the wee hours. jst keep checking her ears aren't too hot.

I used to either put DD in a long sleeve vest and sleeping bag only or a babygro and sleeping bag with no vest.

DS's room is usually 24 degrees and he (4.5 mths) is in a vest, babygro and a sleeping bag. He doesn't get too hot, and it does get quite cold in the early morn.

What tog rating is the sleeping bag?

Also check the temp of the room at diff times - ie if you go to night feed/change - have a look at temp - or as soon as you get up in morning. My ds room is 24 as he goes to bed but can dip to 15/18 by 6am.

thanks guys. I checked the temperature at 2am and it was still 20 but of course the weather has cooled today so now I dont think i need to worry so much. I'll check out the tog ratings of the sleeping bags though.

My understanding was that you should put one more layer on your newborn than you would normally have on yourself in the same room. This always seemed to work out pretty well for my two.
