So neither bedroom in my apartment has a heater, the only heater is a gas heater in my living room that's attached to the wall. So far we've used a box fan to "pull" the cold air out of the kids' room but last night it got cold, i mean really cold. My kids all climbed in one bed and huddled under all their blankets. So i need to go out and get a heater today but I'm not sure what to get. My kids are ages 5, 3, and 1.
I was thinking either a small ceramic heater or maybe some electric blankets. I am worried about the fire risk of have a small heater and I've heard electric blankets are bad for kids. Any thoughts or suggestions?
By the way, going to my landlord to get heat in the bedrooms is not an option, I had to get a lawyer to get him to fix the plumbing so we had a working shower and to fix a hole in our ceiling.

You can go with an infrared heater and leave the bedroom doors open at night. Not sure how large your apartment / house is but this one is for 1000 sq. ft. and it's cool to the touch.
