Keeping the Nursery Cool in Hot Weather


Babies sleep most comfortably in a nursery that is heated to between 16 degrees C and 20 degrees C. During very warm weather, that temperature can be hard to regulate. Here are some tips on keeping the nursery cool enough for your little one.

Your baby doesn’t need all that unnecessary bedding. It is recommended by pediatricians that a baby wearing a diaper and onesie will only need a sheet as bedding if the temperature in his room is 24 degrees C.

Take out any padding around the baby’s crib to allow the air to circulate. If you use a waterproof sheet, consider removing it while the weather is hot.

Fans are great for circulating air, but never point them right at your baby. Turn the fan on before your baby’s bedtime to allow the room time to cool down.
