At the moment just either a singlet or short sleeve suit. We have the fan on a medium setting and I place a blanket on him when I go to be. If his room is really hot or stuff he has the aircon on til I go to bed then I switch it off
Is there any felicity in the world superior to this?

Lately it's been a short sleeved onsie and a 0.5 tog sleeping bag. She also has a mattress protector and cotton sheet on her mattress.

We usually put the fan on medium till we go to bed then turn it down or off depending on the temp.

We don't have aircon in her room so it can get a little stuffy. I find that the heat tends to affect her more than the cold so we just mainly try to make sure she doesn't get too warm.

I follow Tizzies Bedding guide + a few as my DS likes a couple more smile.gif

ATM it is 27 degrees in his room and he is dressed in short sleeve baby grow, short sleeved onesie, 1 tog sleeping bag, a sheet doubled over and 2 blankets. Before I go to bed I will add another 4 blankets to compensate for the temp drop overnight. He has no mattress protector on his bed either and all his bedding is 100% cotton.
In winter when its alot cooler at 20 degrees he sleeps in a short sleeve babygrow, long sleeve onesie, 2.5 tog sleeping bag, sheet doubled over and 10-12 blankets. Everyone almost dies when I tell them what I use but it works for us and he is never up before 7am.

OMG Kristen - I just got hot reading your post biggrin.gif but if it works for your bubs then go for it biggrin.gif

We don't have aircon, but E seems to cope fine with the heat. I don't have a clue what we're doing with clothing to be honest blush.gif but he seems to sleep fine biggrin.gif

At the moment it is 22 in his room, probably 25 when hubby put him to bed, and I had a concert so I don't have a clue what he is wearing biggrin.gif When it's warm but likely to get cooler overnight, I have him in a singlet-suit, with a long-sleeved pj jacket over the top, and nothing on his legs because there are more blankets there.

He still does night sleeps in his Wrap-me-up, and we have a flat sheet, a cotton blanket, and for the cooler nights a few hand-knitted woollen blankets on top, and we pop PJ bottoms on him as well. He has always been warm on his body/neck when I pick him up in the night/morning so I've never put more on. On the hottest nights it was just singlet, nappy, wrap-me-up and one sheet to tuck him in.

I felt awful blush.gif once because we were away and it was 27 when we popped him to bed, but it was in the mountains and the temp dropped hugely, and he wriggled out from under all his bedding in the portacot, and I was woken up in the morning by him chatting away, only in his singlet and wrap-me-up, and it was only 16 in the room sad.gif He was absolutely fine though - his arms and legs were cold to the touch but he was happy and obviously slept well.

I always feel like my kids are under dressed but both run really hot like DH and our house has no aircon.

F is wearing a short sleeve/no legs onesie and is wrapped in a swaddle wrap He has a fitted sheet in the bassinet.

K is wearing short summer pj's and is in bed but has kicked the blankets off sheet/light duvet.

Both rooms are around 28 degrees with fans on (until we go to bed). If we put anymore then the above on them they wake up or won't sleep until layers are off. K sleeps 12 hrs F sleeps about 10.

in winter its usually a short sleeve suit and bonds suit and extra blankets/heat room

We sleep Aidan in aircon everynight, set at 22 degrees. He wears short sleeved PJ's and is in a 1 tog sleeping bag. We put his blanket over him, but it probably gets kicked off too.

Far out, we are so far at the other end of the scale compared to some of you ph34r.gif .

Ben's room is currently around 25 degrees and he sleeps in summer PJs and that is it, no sleeping bag, no blankets, nothing and he sleeps soundly for 11 or 12 hours. If we have a bit of a cooler night I put long PJ pants on him and might go in and place a light wrap over top of him before I go to bed. As soon as the weather starts consistenly getting cooler he will go back into a sleeping bag, then when it gets even cooler we will move to winter PJs and a warmer sleeping bag.

He is just a warm baby I guess. He refuses point blank to sleep under a sheet or blankts and has done so since he stopped being wrapped.
