  • 70 should be good,,You don't want it to cold or to hot..Run a cool humidifier too, to stop the air from being so dry

  • Until babies are about 2-3 months old they can not shiver to get warm. So, if you prefer your house a little on the cool side make sure to keep your little one dressed warm and a blanket over them. :O)

  • I have heard the best temp for babies is 68-72. So I keep it in the middle at 70 :)

  • I read 68-72 during the day and 68 at night. I keep it at 68. During the night I put him in a onesie, a lightweight pajama, and a sleeper. I also put on mittens (that prevent scratching) as he gets cold hands like his mommy! This seems to work well, as he is 6 weeks and sleeps great at night!

  • Whatever you are comfortable with (as long as its not 50 degrees or 85 degrees)... just dress baby like you are dressed.

  • I have also read 68-72. We keep it about 71 during the day and 69 at night. HTH
