Post subject: proper room tempratures.
I wonder what's the proper room tempertature for newborns and infants?*
I did buy my baby some sleeping overalls all made with cotton ones with feet covering and others without ... which onse do you recommend most for sleeping? And do you think a head cover is a must? I noticed some infants get sweat all round their heads making them feel uncomfortable and waking them up during their sleep!
* I'm expecting a babyboy next month and he's my very first child and I live in a country where temperatures go very high during summer and that country is Kuwait, the Arabian Gulf. I'm afraid that keeping proper safe temperatures for my baby is going to be a problem for me ... for example, I think that taking a baby from sudden extreme heat to an air-conditioned room or car and vise-versa will make him sick. Any suggestions?
Gratefull to you;

the ideal temperature is between 10 and 21 degrees centigrade. try and get a nursery thermometer which will help you in keeping the room at a suitible temperature.
you only really need to cover the head if its cold, babys loose 70 percent of heat through there head so if its really hot you need not worry about that.
hope this helps
