Honestly how on earth do you keep a wiggly one year old warm at night? Last night the temperature must have dropped below 20’c and it is only going to get colder. What do I do?
For the past few nights I have closed up the house early to keep all the warmth in so when it comes time to go to bed it is still warm. So far that is working but in the mornings the air still cools off and while I am snuggling in a big heavy doona, the little lady is everywhere but under her blankets.
Isla is a wiggle monster and has always moved a lot in her sleep. At 3 weeks we gave up on the swaddle as it was not working, opting to tuck her in tight to her little cot. Now she tosses and turns throughout the night kicking off blankets.
I dress her in several layers with the final layer a onesie but I am thinking I may need to get one of those bags to put her in so she stays warm. Leaving a heater running is not an option – I think it is a waste of electricity and then it gets far too hot.
So all you mums out there what is your advice for me, how do I deal with the cooler times ahead?
Please leave your comments and ideas below as I would love to hear them.
