Below is a guide for what baby can wear depending on the season:
Winter – baby should wear a singlet, gro-suit/wondersuit under the SLEEPY HUGS sleep suit. If your baby already uses a tog rated sleeping bag, you can have this on top of the SLEEPY HUGS sleep suit to ensure baby is warm. Alternatively, cotton blankets on top is also fine. In super chilly nights, it is best to keep baby’s room temperature between 20-21C. As long as baby is dressed in natural cotton or bamboo clothing and their sleeping bag and blankets are also made of natural materials, they will not sweat or overheat.
Summer – baby can simply wear a singlet and nappy/diaper under the SLEEPY HUGS sleep suit to ensure they are not too hot . With soaring temperatures, it is best to keep baby’s room temperature between 18-20C. Avoid dressing baby in synthetic or un-natural materials including bedding as this will cause them to sweat and overheat.
