    The temp in our bedroom ropped last night to only 15, so we put the oil heater on, then it felt boiling in room!

    What temp do you have your rooms?

    What do you use to heat them?

    Also sometimes LO hands are cold, should I go back to puttung scratch mitts on?

    She has a cold at moment so bit concerned!

    Billy's room is 15 too. We also use a oil heater on the lowest setting just to warm it up a Little. We don't like having the heating on in the house much as we much prefer it cooler. Cold hands is OK, as long as her body is toasty :flower:

    We prefer to have his room hotter. It's normally about 20 or so when it goes to bed, and can drop down to 16, 17, 18 overnight. We find that he prefers it warmer though, but all babies are different. When his room drops to 14, 15, 16 he wakes up shivvering. We just use normal central heating and blast the room with heat four times a day for about an hour.

    Do you leave the heater on all night on the low setting?

    The bedroom is usually around 24 when we go to bed and drops 18-20 by morning. We use a fire to heat so it has to be quite hot to begin with to stay warm through the night so she starts off warm so no blankets but wakes up cold in the night.

    Yes. It's basically a radiator and it's the only way we have of his room being warm. I sometimes stick a long sleeve vest on him if it's not cold enough to have the heater on.

    Our room temp is never lower than 21 don't even have the radiator on in there, we're right next to the water tank and it keeps the room warm ( the pipes run under our floor boards)... 15 is too cold imo. Poppy seems cold with a vest, sleepsuit and a 2.5tog grobag on sometimes so put a blanket over here and that's at 21 degrees.

    I find putting long sleeved vests on adds an extra layer to the arms & helps lo's hands stay warmer if the temp drops - but doesn't add layers to her body. On really cold nights (18 ish) we use a long sleeved vest under fleecy pj's in her sleeping bag. This seems to keep her just right.

    Ive seen sleeping bags with sleeves in the vertbaudet catalogue if your lo has really cold hands/arms

    Ours ranges from about 16 - 21 normally. We have central heating and I stick her monitor on to keep a check on the temp x
