My youngest (14months) goes to bed with a thermal body suit, socks, and footed fleece Jammie's. I do cover him when I go to bed but he always rolls around out from under it. He sleeps in a crib in my room and it is the coldest in the house. I keep the thermostat at 69 but my room is realistically more like 65 or so.

Maybe you need a space heater for your room. That is pretty cold for a baby :/

Re: Keeping baby warm and safe in his crib

Our house is right around 68 to 69 degrees. We do socks. Cotton sleeper. The fleece sleeper. Babies also get blanket and we use bumpers. Blankets usually get kicked off.

The little one I watch gets put to bed in fleece sleepers and a sleep sack every night. She's 8 months.

Re: Keeping baby warm and safe in his crib

Bear in mind, I live in Phoenix, and it's almost air conditioner time again here....

So, what about those union suits (one pc long johns) and a fleece sleeper? Maybe just a little too big, so it can partially cover his hands?

When my daughter was little, we used a onsie under a sleeper...but, again, it's not really cold here.

Re: Keeping baby warm and safe in his crib

We do lots of layers in the winter: onesie first, then thin cotton long-sleeved pjs & socks, then a fleece sleeper over that. I've never had to put a sleep sack over all of that but if it were cold enough I would do that last. Even if their hands are cold, if they are not waking an unusual amount then I figure they are comfortable enough.

Re: Keeping baby warm and safe in his crib

WE live in Upstate, NY so its cold. We keep our heat at about 67 isn So we would do a fleece sleeper with a onsie under....sometimes a sleep sack. Hands might the chilly but it never seemed to bother them....id prefer a bit chilly than too warm for a baby.

A fleece blanket under the crib sheet should help with the chill of the mattress. Or you could use a fleece or flannel crib sheet. If you cannot find one to buy they are super-easy to make. You just need a couple yards of fabric, a sewing machine, and some elastic!
