I know the advice for newborns is to keep the room temperature between 16-20ºC, but does it still apply to slightly older babies? The temp in our room was 23 last night so I put DS to bed in pyjamas only and a 1 tog gro bag and opened a small window to get the temp down. He then woke up pretty cold at 3am and I put a thin blanket on him as didn't want to wake him further. Have put him to bed in the same tonight but with the addition of a vest. Do you still follow the guidelines, or do you go by how you feel youself or by feeling baby's chest?
I go by the lowest temperature the room will reach so even though the room might be warm at the start of the night I would dress my lo for the middle of the night temperature so I know they will be warm enough throughout the night.
