I'm in Australia, it's winter which means it's getting down as low as 6 degrees at night. And because our stupid houses are built to keep cool, it's only a touch warmer inside. So dd (12 weeks) is in a vest and a fleece sleepsuit, under a fleece blanket, a flannelette sheet, and a heavy cotton blanket. Her body is warm but her hands when I feed her at 2am are icicles and her head is cold - she wakes in the morning with a stuffy nose. I've tried putting a little hat on her (not sure if that's ok with FSIDs advice?) but it just pops off when she turns her head.
We have a heater but it's in ds's room which is colder than ours, but I'm just wondering if anyone has any other tips for keeping dd warm? Or should I not worry.
I have dd in singlet, pjs, Grobag and then a blanket over the top. She is 20mo though so not as young as your dd. I was v glad she was born in Nov so her first 6 or 7 months were warm before she had to experience the "winter in a shed" aspect of NZ life.
You can get fleecy Grobag-type things which I had for dd's first winter, some of them have sleeves so are very warm.
Do you have an oil heater? I have one in dd's room, I put it on low when I go to bed and it keeps the room fairly warm all night. If it's on low it's not using too much power and seems to keep the chill out. You can get ones with timers adn thermostats etc so you can set to come on at 2am at a certain temperature.
Also have very thick lined curtains that I close as soon as it starts to get dark, to keep any heat from the day in.
