Z was born in winter so I feel like a first time mum in some ways having a summer bub this time.

What should baby wear for sleep? Heis currently wearing a bonds wondersuit and wrapped in a muslin cloth. I did have a blanket tucked tightly over him but after worrying about SIDS and overheating have just taken that off.

Is a wondersuit too hot for him or should I just have him in singlet and nappy with a muslin cloth? FYI I'm in Sydney and while we do have the air con on sometimes we do t keep it on overnight unless it's really hot.

Thanks in advance.

We put J in a singlet and nappy, or a little sleeveless singlet suit. Then we wrap in a muslin cloth.
That being said I'm very paranoid about overheating, and he is a sleepy feeder so the less clothes he has on at feed times the easier it is for me to get him to stay awake.

I figure I can always add blankets, plus we don't have air con in the bedrooms so it can get warm
"It's impossible" said pride.
"It's risky" said experience.
"It's pointless" said reason.
"Give it a try" whispered the heart...

I would dress him in a short sleeve leg less onesie, muslin wrap & tuck him in with a sheet rather than a blanket. You can not worry about the sheet on warmer days.

I dressed bub in a onsie/bonds suit and wrapped him. When he decided he didn't like being wrapped early on I got him a grobag and followed their guidelines - so dressed him depending on the temperature of the room.

I agree with this. I have DD in a onsie, a woombie/ergo cocoon and if need be a muslin tucked over the top. Blanket if its really cold, but thats pretty rare at the moment. Some days she is in a nappy an woombie only with the fan on, as she doesnt really sleep without some sort of wrapping.
