Sleeping in heat for newborn


Sleeping for newborn in this heat. How is everyone making sure their baby stays cool in this heat?

Great post... I’ve just been reading about it... too hot to sleep right now lol. So a cooler bath before bed time, fan, and they can sleep in just a nappy or short sleeve vest if it’s like 27 degrees... 😊😊

Great thanks for reply! My little one is fast asleep and I should be but this heat is keeping me awake !! And now it is thundering!

I think you can only do so much, our room didnt drop below 26.5c all night! My LO is 6 month but slept in his nappy with a thin large muslin over him as he is quite close to the fan. He slept fine! I on the other hand had the worst nights sleep ever!

I was the same as kept watching her to make sure she was ok!

My boy was a newborn in last year’s heatwave and i remember being so worried about him getting too warm.

He needed swaddling to sleep so I just put him in a thin cotton swaddle and his nappy. Now he’s 14 months and he slept in just a vest last night.

Leave the window open and/or put a fan on with a bowl of iced water in front of it for a few hours before bedtime to cool the room down as much as possible.

I’ll try the bowl of water next to the fab tonight! Thanks!

I found this helpful last night when thinking about this for my 6 day old x

Ooh congratulations! Seen your posts on here before but didn’t know you’d had your little one! x

Thank you! I still can’t believe I am now a mummy! X

Thanks kt_11. Yes, born 5 days earlier than we’d expected but birth went well and he’s absolutely scrummy. Been in a bit of a newborn/breastfeeding bubble since 🥰🥰


my lb is 6 months and I just slept him in a vest and I had windows wide open and he slept soundly I was just checking him to make sure he didnt get cold ..... he even slept through the storm..... me on the other hand had a bad night sleep with this heat x
