  • I would snuggle that baby right up with you. I coslept with my son until he was 5 months and It kept us both toasty. If you are worried about his safety with cosleeping, stay awake. Gotta keep that baby warm. By the way, even though it may seem counterintuitive, a great way to get the baby's body temp up is skin to skin contact. Undress him to his diaper, and hold him to your chest under a robe or button shirt, then layer on a couple blankets.

  • do you have a washer/dryer in unit? if so, throw some wet towels in the dryer and unhook the vent to let the hot air into the room. itll be kinda humid but warm. you could also turn your oven on and open the door. :)

  • dial 911 . i think it's against the law to turn the heat off or to refuse to fix it when thier are minor age children in the home. good luck.

  • I agree with undressing the baby and cosleeping. Just be aware and maybe lightly doze instead of all out sleeping. Unless you are used to cosleeping. We did it for years with our son and it was fine. Don't turn your oven or dyer on though as they are supposed to be vented and can cause a build up of carbon monoxide I think.
