How hot is too hot?

Hello, my wife will be giving birth soon, and I was reading on how hot the nursery should or should not be. They recommend 18c - 20c (around 70f). Anyways, my condo unit is always warm, never below 23c. I cannot do anything about this. I have turned off the heat (but kept the fan on) and nothing will work. In the summer time it will not be an issue, as the air conditioning will be on, but for now it will be warm.

My question is; is this dangerours to be this warm? Or will I just have to compenstate the extra heat with fewer blakets for the baby? What are your suggestions??

Thanks in advance!!!

Hi BricktopD,

Honestly, don't worry too much about this. If you are comfortable in that temperature, chances are that the baby will be too. All babies are different, but i know that after they are born, they like to be swaddled and warm, because they are so used to the warmth of the womb. Your baby will let you know when something is wrong. For example, if you have too many blankets on the baby, and he/she is too warm, he/she will cry and let you know that there is something wrong. Also, if the baby is sweating, then of course you will know. Just do the best you can, and your baby will let you know the rest.

Good luck and take care,

Re: How hot is too hot?

Thank you very much for the reply. It seems that everywhere I read, that the ideal temp is so much lower and that the kid is going to die if its to warm (above 23C).

ANyway thanks again, and I would appreciate anyone eles's opinions or experiences.

I agree with the other person who responded. As long as you're comfortable, your baby will be too. Best of luck.
