CafeMom Team will be posting Baby Encyclopedia questions in the Babies Category from Tuesday till Friday of this week. For every question you answer, you'll be entered to win one of the $25 Gap Gift Cards that we're giving away each day!
But there's a catch... only "real" answers will be entered to win the $25 Gap Gift Card. If you do not have tested advice or an informed opinion on the topic, please wait to answer the next question. There will be plenty of opportunities to enter the contest.
We are using these questions to create a mom-tested resource for new and expecting parents, so try to use proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling when writing your answers.
Read Official Rules.

Keeping the temperature just right for your baby is really important for a safe sleeping environment and helps in preventing SIDS. Between 65-70 degrees is good, a lot of people over bundle there babies, it's better to be a little cooler. You can also purchase a nursery thermometer.

A comfortable temperature. They don't need it to be any warmer than you. If it's comfortable for you then it's usually comfortable for the baby.
