Cassie is beautiful Love

as for the temp- I never bothered with that- it was a bit hard to do when I had solid fuel heating so in the mornong my house was always cold until I got my fire going. I would just use your common sense and have it set at what you want.

Shocked 25degrees? isnt that too hot? I thought the recommendation was keeping a room at 18degrees? but as I said I never bothered with any of that

Aww, firstly - what a cutie! I thought that the recommendation was for the room to be around 18degrees as alex said. Below 16 is too low and i thought above 25 was too hot? I may be wrong though? Sorry wasn't much help. I have to confess i just use common sense with mine. If i am cold then i put more layers on baby. As in short sleeve vest and sleepsuit. Really cold i would put a longsleeved vest and sleepsuit on. neither hot or cold i woud just use a sleepsuit and hot just a vest or really hot just a nappy. Aswell as the growbag/sleeping bag thingy Xx

I understood it was about 18-20 degrees as comfortable for baby with sheet and 2 blankets. Our nursery seems to be between 21 and 23 degrees no matter what time of day so I'm thinking just the one blanket will be enough.

My sister just bought me a 2.5 tog grobag but I'm not sure I'll use it as they can't kick it off (which I know is the point Embarassed ) if they get too hot.

Unfortunately I've found the more I've read about SIDS, the more paranoid I feel Sad I'm sure I wasn't this bad with Jas. Sometimes it feels like there is just too much information now Scared

Canada is known as the Nanny country because we worry too much and outlaw anything that is the least bit dangerous to children.
We have this information now so we can better protect our kids. Just think of how many SIDs cases there were before North America discovered Chinas secret of placing babies on their back.

After losing a baby to SIDS i wish there had been more info.

It is the most distressing thing a mother can go through out living nand losing their child so no there is not enough info or ways to prevent or it wouldnt be happening.

They have not proved though that temp or how the baby lays has anything to do with it as my daughter had a thin blanket and was laying on her back.

I used to put Charlotte in a growbag and she would have another fleece blanket over the top as we lived in a stone victorian terrace with no central heating and she was born in february. The thermometer always said it was too cold so we would put an electric heater on to warm up the room then put her down for her sleep and turn it off. I would check her temperature by feeling under her babygrow on her back, of she felt warm I would remove a layer or add if cold.

With George in this sort of weather I would put him in his babygrow and his growbag. I would go by, if I felt too hot, obviously baby would be and vice versa if i was cold baby would be.
