My SO will not allow me to turn on the central heating until it falls below 40 degrees in the house. It is absurd, I know, but he is adament about this to keep the electricity bill down.
It is turning cold tonight and I am worried how I can keep my toddler warm. I do have one electric heater but obviously it is unsafe to use with a toddler running thru the house.

Even for an Alaskan who is used to colder weather that is pretty extreme! I think you should talk him into allowing the heat to be on for a few hours at night to warm up the house and knock the moisture out of the air and then turn the heat back down when everyone is on their way to bed. If he disagrees I would go with the cooking in the oven at night idea. I'm not 100% sure but I think a heater is cheaper than an oven, and I know for an absolute fact that an electric heater sucks alot more electric than a regular furnace. To answer your question on how to stay warm, it's my opinion that flannel is the warmest material possible. I buy flannel PJ's and sheets, and if you want really warm, go with flannel sheets and a feather down comforter. I would also let your son sleep with you so you can share body heat. Good luck!
