The ideal temperature for your newborn’s room is between 18 and 22 degrees Celsius. It is the temperature where babies are most comfortable and develop faster. You will find this temperature difficult to maintain during the winter, but in summer, you can keep it at the same temperature as the air outside. During the winter, you can increase the temperature in your baby’s room to keep your baby from getting too cold. During this time, you should also keep the temperature of your baby’s room between 22 and 23 degrees.
In addition, your newborn should be kept cool as well. Fresh air is very beneficial for the health of a newborn. To keep the temperature moderate, open a window or door to allow fresh air. A light blanket that covers just the chest area is ideal. A light sleep sack that covers only the head is also recommended. This way, your baby’s head is less likely to become infected by SIDS. If you don’t have an air conditioner, try to set it to the optimum temperature for your newborn, which is 65 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
If your newborn is feeling cold, immediately take him to a warm room. A baby with a fever, cold hands or feet, or shivering can indicate hypothermia. In extreme cold, they may start acting fussy and irritable. While you can’t be certain, some signs suggest your baby might be too cold or too warm. Moreover, bright red skin and frequent wet diapers can be signs of hypothermia and should be taken to the hospital.
If the room temperature is too hot or too cold, consider your temperature as a reference. First, feel whether it’s too warm or too cold for your newborn to sleep. You can use a room thermometer to monitor the ambient temperature in the room and adjust it accordingly to your baby’s needs. In case the room is too hot, consider moving the newborn to a cooler room in the house. It can make the room temperature more comfortable for the baby and reduce the risk of SIDS.
