what to wear to bed

Mobile bumping... what to wear to bed.

So I am having a hard time figuring out if my LO is too hot or too cold when I put him to bed. We have central air and have it set at 70. I like putting him in a long sleeve zip up jammie with footies and swaddling him with his arms out. But I feel like he's too hot! He's got a sleep sack swaddle thing that I like to use because he doesn't kick out of it like he does when I swaddle him in a blanket. Could he just wear a long sleeve onesie in the sleep sack? Any other suggestions? Thanks!

    We typically do a onesie and a sleep sack at night and she's usually still warm when I get her in the morning.  I would just watch the temp of the house and your LO and see how it goes.  If legs are cold in the morning you might want to switch back, but I think you'll be fine.

  • My LO also sleeps in a onesie and sleep sack and is a little warm in the morning but no sweat. I would just check your LO in the morning when you unswaddle him. Feel his feet and hands.

  • Seems like no matter how he's wrapped his hands are ice cold. What might that be an indicator of?

    Their hands and feet get cold easily. As long as their torso is still warm you are good

    This!
  • My DS wears a short sleeved onesie shirt, swaddled then light receiving blanket over. We keep our door closed to keep the cat out and the window open during the night. Feel the back
    Of their neck .. If baby is sweaty, it's too hot

  • Right now LO sleeps in her diaper swaddled in a receiving blanket.  I worry that she gets too cold, but I constantly check her and if anything she kicks the blankets off because she is too warm.  I am afraid if I put in the sleepers with the footies she will really over heat
  • On warm nights we put her in a onesie and an armsfree swaddle. She absolutely despises having her arms tied down.

    This. Don't use their extremities as an indicator. Also check the back of the neck and underarms. If those are warm, then your baby is warm.

    This. DS freaks out if his arms get swaddled, but he loves it from the chest down.

    We use the long sleeve gown sleepers which I love for night time diaper changes and a sleep sack. I have light weight and heavier versions. If the air is on I use the heavier one. When he had a temp he just slept in his diaper. I went by his neck temp. I also use an angle care monitor that tells his nursery temp and usually aim for 6870 degrees. In the mornings I usually take off the sack because he will nurse and fall asleep next to me and I know he is much warmer next to me.
