How to Dress Your Baby for Different Temperatures
The temperature of your baby’s room is one of the most important factors to consider when dressing them for sleep. In general, you should aim to keep the room between 16 and 20 degrees Celsius (61 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit).
If the room is too cold, your baby may be at risk of hypothermia. On the other hand, if the room is too hot, your baby may be at risk of overheating. Overheating can lead to SIDS, so it is important to take precautions to avoid it.
