So we are heading into Summer and we are getting some lovely warmer weather, but what do you dress your baby and young children in at bed time?
A bedroom temperature of 16-20 degrees is ideal but during these hotter spells it is sometimes just not possible to keep bedroom temperatures below 20 degrees.
Here are a few tips for managing these higher than normal temperatures.
Sweating is normal and a natural way for our bodies to cool us down, some babies will be sweatier than others, check to see how hot they feel rather than relying on sweatiness as an indicator of their temperature. If you are concerned or want a more reliable indicator use an in ear thermometer.
The higher temperatures can also make your baby sleep more soundly than usual; the heat can make us all lethargic so this isn’t anything to worry about unless you have problems rousing your baby or they are displaying unusual behaviour.
