The nurses in the hospital told me that a newborn can regulate his/her temperature after the first 24 hours and a hat is unnecessary if you keep the house fairly warm. Babies basically only need one more layer than adults to be comfortable. Swaddle him as for as long as he enjoys it (some don't) and make sure you expose him to light during the day to help reset his circadian rhythm.
