Owlet: What is a good room temperature for a baby?
Many factors go into creating a safe sleeping environment for you and your baby. In addition to your baby’s actual sleep space, we also need to consider the room your baby sleeps in and ways to make it comfortable and safe. Room temperature is one of the topics that many new parents will wonder about due to concerns about their baby’s comfort.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the ideal room temperature for your baby is 68 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit..
Due to the many variations in family living spaces and seasonal temperatures around the world, it may be difficult for some parents to consistently follow this recommendation. Here are 10 tips to support your ability to make your baby’s sleep space perfect for comfort and safety.
- Try setting your home’s thermostat to a consistent temperature around your baby’s bedtime. Many newer digital thermostats allow automated settings so you don’t have to worry about it every night after it’s been automatically set to 68 degrees at 7 p.m. every night.
- Dress your baby in an extra layer of clothing than how you are dressed. For example, if you sleep in thin pajama pants and a shirt, dress your baby in a short-sleeved onesie with long-sleeved pajamas made of breathable fabric. In colder climates, use thicker diapers for your baby’s pajamas.
- Remember that babies should not have loose blankets in their sleeping space. Therefore, use a portable blanket or sleeping bag over your baby’s pajamas when putting him to sleep. If your baby is very young and you swaddle him during sleep time, use a thin blanket or sling made of breathable material.
- Consider using a portable thermostat to check the temperature in your baby’s room at bedtime. This can help in homes where it’s more difficult to have consistent temperatures in different rooms or floors. This is also true for those who live in apartment buildings and older structures with outdated heating and cooling systems.
- Consider using a small fan in your baby’s room. A fan placed away from the crib on a dresser can help circulate the air in your baby’s room.
- Never put your baby to sleep with a bonnet, it can cause your baby to overheat.
- Always respond to your baby’s cries. If your baby is uncomfortable with the temperature, you need to be able to go see your toddler and watch him. If his head, face, neck, or hands are too hot or too cold, pick him up so you can take care of his discomfort.
- If in doubt about your baby’s body temperature, have a digital thermometer handy so you can check their temperature. A baby’s normal temperature should be around 98.6 degrees, while a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher is considered a fever.
- Always refer to the American Academy of Pediatrics and follow recommendations for safe sleep.
- If in doubt about a possible illness in your baby, contact your pediatrician.
