Is my baby warm enough at night?
We all tend to worry that our baby will not be warm enough during the night and during the day when we are out and about. An easy way to check is to feel the back of the baby’s neck. If this area is comfortably warm the baby is dressed appropriately. If it is sweaty, you need to remove some clothing, and if it is cool to the touch, a warmer sleeper or another layer of clothing should be added. Babies’ hands and feet are always cool and should not be used to judge how adequately the baby is dressed. A sleep sack is always a good option for babies – see our post on a great Jacadi Sleepsack.
