Help baby sleep when it is hot
Sweaty blankets and high temperatures may not be fun to your little baby. Therefore, it is necessary to ensure that the temperature stays around a comfortable 70°F
The rule of the thumb is that if you are feeling hot, the baby is also feeling hot. If you realize that you don’t need a cover, the little one may just need one. But if you are sleeping naked, the infant will be comfortable in a sleepsuit. If the temperatures are high, the baby may do without a sleeping suit.
Some babies will sweat a lot during the night. It is normal and helps the body to cool down. Perhaps when you notice that the sweating is too much, you may need to check whether it is too hot for the baby. Open the windows and doors. If you can, avoid using air conditioning because it dehydrates the body.
Lastly, ensure that you keep the house cool throughout the day to reduce night sweats.
