DS (15 wks) sweats a lot. I'm not sure what to dress him in at night time. ATM he has on a nappy, singlet and is wrapped in a muslin wrap. We have the ceiling fan on as high as it will go and sometimes the air con as it can be very hot here during the night.

Even when it is cold he sweats so I'm not sure what to dress him in. Sometimes he feels cold but other times he is hot and sweaty.

What do you dress your sweaty child in at night for sleep?

DS is also a hot and sweaty baby. We dress him in light onsie singlet suits and live with fans and aircon being on. On really hot nights we dress him the same as your DS, singlet, nappy and muslin wrap

We don't swaddle anymore, but put DD in her sleeping bag in just.her nappy on a hot night. When we wrapped, it was a muslin over just a nappy. Also have fans/aircon for her

I'm dressing DS in a nappy singles and light wrap. The room temp is 23 with air on outside the door and it does sort of make it in the room.
He seems happy with that. The other night I turned aircon off and she was unsettled and I think he was too hot as I eventually turned it on and he settled again.
