    Hi all,

    I want to move my 7 week old from being swaddled into a sleeping bag but wondered what to dress her in.
    Usually at night she is in a baby grow and wrapped in a thin blanket. What should I dress her in if I have a 2.5 tog sleeping bag?

    Thanx mel

    depends on the temp of your room, but for 2.5 in room between 16-20 degrees a long sleeve vest and baby grow. They so no extra blankets and I stick with that but many add a blanket (I worry about over heating).

    what temp does your baby sleep in? olly likes to be warm at night, so we put him in a vest and sleep suit in 2.5 tog bag, and then he has one cellular blanket. his room is around 18 degrees

    If you buy a Grobag sleeping bad - they come with a room thermometer and a guide to what to dress baby in according to room temp. It really helped me out in terms of what to dress her in as I was a bit unsure too!
