    he wasn't sweaty at all when i got him up - his chest and back of the neck felt fine - the cellular blanket is really thin... and full of holes basically so it really just serves to "tuck him in" rather than add too much heat.

    tonight i've ditched the 0.5 tog sleeping bag and will see how he goes. with air con off his room is still at about 25 degrees now and once again he feels fine to touch.

    I wish I didn't have to swaddle his arms - then I would feel much better about the temp in the room and I would just pop him in a sleeping bag and cellular blanket. Unfortunately he just isn;t ready to be unwrapped yet!!! hopefully in the next 3 weeks...?

    thanks for all your responses. I'm going to run with it for now and make sure to keep an eye on him.

    My baby (10 months old) sleeps in a room that is 25C and wears long sleeves PJs. No blankets or grobag.
    His grandma tried to adjust the temperature to 26C and he'll always wake up in the middle of the night.
    Do I need to buy him a grobag for winter? Or may be it's more comfortable for him if the room was cooler?

    Our 8 month year old sleeps at around 19/20 C. His air con is on 24/7. According to most childcare specialist including Gina Ford, babies should be sleeping at around 17C. My son wears a long sleep top and pants and is in a light grow bag and has 1 cashmere blanket and another lighter one on top of him.

    Overheating is a major cause of SIDS as well. If your baby has a cold or a running nose, it's important to keep it cool in the room as well b/c if it's too warm the mucus will block his/her nasal passage making it even more difficult/uncomfortable to sleep.

    My 2 sleep in a room at 24/25 with long sleeved pjs and a 0.5 tog grobag. Sometimes I'll add a blanket - my aircon thermostat isn't very accurate so temp tends to fluctuate a little and it can feel cold.

    I did read something about 21 degrees being the right temp but it seemed so cold when they were little that i increased it and they did seem to sleep better after - could just be coincidence of course!

    My 9 month old sleeps in a room with a/c but turned to 27 degrees. It feels a bit cooler than that though. He sleeps in just long sleeved pjs, no gro bag or blanket. For winter, I'll probably switch to a long sleeved body with grobag. We have a room heater, so will probably use the thinnest grobag for now.
