Most moms know that picking the wrong bedding might cause SIDS. However, we forget that if your house is really cold your child might get hypothermia or bronchitis. Babies need warmth even more because many of their systems are still develop ing. They get cold easier and quicker than we do. Portable electric heaters (fire proof) are safe only until your baby starts crawling... If you don’t have proper heating at your house and your only option is using blankets I suggest you check your child’s temp with a thermometer or by touching the back of his/her neck...if he/she feels too warm to the touch remove some layers. Newborns can’t regulate their own body temp. You need to check and make sure he/she is ok. Room temperature should be in the 70s. Feel free to post any tips...
