Ideal Home Temperature during winters?

Hi All,

I am very confused as to how much temperature we should maintain in the house during winters. I live in chicago and it gets very cold during winters. My DS is 1 year and he does not take any blanket. I make him wear a onsie and his night suit and socks at bedtime. Is this enough for him or do i need to make him wear a sleeping blanket? The problem is most of the sleeping blankets are made of fleece and DS has ezcema and fleece gives him a rash. Any suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thanks! We have been keeping our house temperature at 69 degrees.

We always used a sleepsack (It's cold here in Milwaukee also). I know Halo makes an 100% cotton sleepsack.

Did you use even when your baby got older? My one year is a very active baby and is all over the crib at night and i am not sure if he would like to wear one. Last winters he was a baby and i did make him sleep in a sack.

Re: Ideal Home Temperature during winters?

Last winter I used pjs with feet -- carters brand. Or I got sleepers with feet from the Children's Place that were t-shirt material, some from Target that were fleecy. This year I have a couple of heavy blanket sleepers that he just loves that are carters brand. He also has some long sleeve cotton pjs without feet and I put bigger toddler athletic socks on him. Mainly his toes seem to get cold if they're not covered.

I usually get up in the middle of the night and check on him (and pee) and I'll throw a blanket over him. Though he usually throws it off at night. And I have noticed if he's gotten cool at night when we've gone to the mountains or to the lake he will keep his blanket on.

Re: Ideal Home Temperature during winters?

He wore his sleepsack until he was 22 months old. We got the X-Large one. He liked it becasue it was the only thing he knew. He slept in it every night of his life. Now we use a blanket (he's two). He kicks it off everynight and his feet get really cold. I've tried putting socks on him but he pulls them off right away. I just keep putting his blanket on him all night.

If your son will not wear the sack then I would put him in something with feet and I would put two layers on him. I have always wondered what you would do without the sack. Most of the advice I have heard was to put them in layers.

Hope you all stay toasy this winter
