Well here’s another not-book-related post from me. My little angel is now 6 months old and I’m having a hard time figure out how to dress her for cold nights and I’m running out of ideas. Here’s my situation, hopefully you can help me! Lily-Ann always kicked her covers, and lately started to pull them over her head ( she likes to play peek-a-boo, see video proof at the end) so a blanket is out of question.
I have had her sleep in a sleeping sac for months now, and it was all good except that a week or so ago, she started to turn on her belly in her crib (she’s been able to for weeks, but never did it in her crib at night before). With the sleeping sac though, she gets stuck by the rail, tangled in the sac and wiggles likes a fish out of water, so I have to get up and reposition her. She used to fall asleep in her bed on her own, but now I have to rock her to sleep and then put her into her bed or she keeps switching to her belly. This means, not only does she still wakes up 3-4 times a night, but now it takes me an hour each time to put her back in bed. Mommy is exhausted.
Now, I thought: Hey why not put a warmer pj over her regular pj. It’ll keep her warm and she’ll be free to move. Unfortunately, it’s not keeping her warm enough. You’ll say, just crank up to heat you idiot, but it’s advised to keep a 67F temperature to lessen sudden death of new-born risks, and I already keep the room a little warmer.
So as mentioned in the intro… I am out of idea to keep my daughter warm and safe at night, and hopefully get some sleep myself. Any ideas?
