sorry that should say 'putting them in'!

my ds1 slept in a 1 tog sleeping bag

mad4myboys Mon 01-Jun-09 20:07:19

you mean pjs?

Monkeyandbooba Mon 01-Jun-09 20:09:37

Yes whatever they sleep in so pjs/vest/blanket/grobag?

DS is struggling to get to sleep because it's hot so trying to decide what layers would be best smile

he had a vest (short sleeved) and a 1 tog baby gro. They are very 'cocooned' in an amby (great though!) although there is room for air to 'flow' through it. What about getting a fan? My 3 year old has to have fan and my 6 month old only sleeps in a baby gro (no vest) no covers, no bag as he is so hot already! Will be getting fan for his room too

Put a fan in there tonight, when I picked him up he was very sweaty on his back. Only in pjs, when i go to bed I'll pop a blanket over him. He's always been a 'hot' baby! Problem is he doesn't like to sleep without clothes on his top and bottom - think he feels a bit insecure.

yeah my 2 ds are exactly the same! Even in the car with the A/C on! could you put him in just a nappy and a 1 tog sleeping bag? He would still be 'covered' how old is he?

I was wondering the same tonight - but have put babygro and sleeping bag - she is asleep but Im still worried that it's too hot!

He's 7mths, I did think about a 1 tog sleeping bag. Have only got the winter weight ones which are far too warm right now.

DD is sleeping like a star fish in a nightie on her bed grin

1 tog bags are fab. Equivalent of sleeping with just a sheet, so enough to feel covered and comfy but not hot

As an aside I shall be sad when he grows out of the Amby, he looks so sweet in it smile

He is 22lbs and long so will either need to get a new spring or settle him in a cot soon.

my ds1 grew out of it by 4 months! He wanted to move around! Even now at nearly 3 he sleeps across his bed!

My ten month old is currently asleep in his Amby is a shortsleeved vest and a 0.5 tog sleeping bag. We also have a ceiling fan on in his room. Keep in mind that the mattresses in the Amby are made of foam which does make them hot.

tryingtobemarypoppins Mon 01-Jun-09 22:00:04

Pfff not hot enough to cause us problems up here in Scotland! But when we went on holiday we took the Amby and DS slept in a short sleeved vest (that poppered under the bum) and a flanelette sheet, and he was fine. (It was tropical.)

I was going to get a low tog bag but decided it wasn't worth the cost when I'd be unlikely to need it again- they are pricey!

go on ebay!!

I put my little boy in just a vest at night, cover with his blankie (comforter) if needed.
I may have to go back to swaddling thou as he is sleeping a 5hr block then up every half hour/hourly because light!!! He's 7 weeks.
