    Woolbabe Clothing Guide - What To Dress Baby In At Night

    It can drive parents crazy trying to decide what clothing to dress their child in when it's either really warm or really cold. In fact we get questions about this year round, as lots of babies are very sensitive to being at just the right temperature. And this is a topic that can keep mums awake at night!

    Overall we find woolbabe sleeping bags very forgiving about what you dress your baby in. The 100% natural fabric means you can use the bags in a very wide range of temperatures as the wool content helps regulate your child's temperature and also absorbs moisture, wicking it away from the skin.

    However it makes life much easier if you have some idea of what clothing will work as a starting point.

    Please note that the World Health Organisation recommend that children do not sleep in rooms colder than 16 degrees, so we recommend using a heater on low if your children's room gets below 16 degrees.

    Note: This is a guide only. It is important not to overheat your baby.
