One problem that all parents are expected to face in winter, is how to keep their baby’s temperature balanced while sleeping. Finding the golden incision is not always easy and it is common for the baby to either warm up with very thick baby bodysuits and sleeping bags (and thus sweat) or become cold. Both have an effect on sleep, but sleeping in the first months of an infant’s life is crucial for healthy development. How, then, will you keep your baby warm without choking it? What are the golden rules?
First of all, we can’t talk about trying to adjust the infant’s internal temperature if the outside temperature of the room is not right. Pediatricians recommend that the temperature in the children’s room is 20-22 degrees Celsius, slightly above what is required for an adult.
Is the baby cold or warm?
There is possibility that the baby is properly dressed, the room has a perfect temperature, but the baby feels cold because we are placing him/her in cold sheets. It is best to warm the baby sheets with a water heater or a warm baby bottle, but be sure to remove it before putting the baby to bed.
Be careful of blankets
Blankets can be very dangerous for babies because they can wrap around their head and cause suffocation. So it is best to avoid them or to have them only on the bottom of the baby’s body to keep the feet warm. Alternatively, a sleeping blanket that is either worn or used as a regular blanket is the safest solution.
