  • Get a thin, cotton sleeper. Or her in a onesie and swaddle her with a blanket

  • I'd still put her in warm clothes. My son was born in march, and he was put in warm sleepers, pants, long sleeved onsies. I think he was always put to sleep in those. In the winter, early spring and fall, it can get chilly and the. In the late spring, summer, early fall, you have the air on.

  • My daughter who was a June baby slept in the long sleeve night gowns and my son who was born this past September sleeps in the long sleeve night gowns also. They make it easy to change diapers.

  • I always layered mine - a tshirt with a sleeper over it, and then they were swaddled. They were always warm when they woke up to nurse.

  • oh - sorry misread and thought you were talking about it being too cold. I always dressed mine in sleepers, even in the summer because we have our a/c on so it doesn't get too hot.

  • My daughter is due in May and I am going to put her in sleepers, gowns and if it gets too hot i'll put her in just onesies, but the baby shouldn't get hot because the AC will be on and just cause we might feel hot they might not. (:
