we have an older house but have ducted heating set on about 17-18 degrees. I currently have DS in a bonds wondersuit with a singlet underneath during the day, however am worried that as this is what he sleeps in, when he comes out to play etc on his mat he may not be warm enough. I am a very cold fish and feel the cold heaps so what I am wearing is not an accurate guide for him as I started doing this and overheated him a few times. I am feeling his chest etc and he is warm but not hot, however as he now seems to have a cold I am thinking that maybe he is not warm enough?? We are in central victoria and the day temps are around 15-16 degrees in winter.
Any suggestions ??

Maybe put a little cardy or cute Bonds hoody over the top of the wondersuit?
ETA I put DD in a wondersuit with singlet then short-sleeved romper underneath. Nice and snug, and if she feels too warm I just unbutton the top of the wondersuit for a while.

I have DS in a tracksuit lately through the day. It's freezing in this house, really painfully cold!
At night, he'll either sleep in his tracksuit plus his sleeping bag, or a Wondersuit!12 January 2005

Someone told me ages ago to allow for an extra layer to what you are wearing...ie if you're wearing a T shirt, put a T shirt + singlet on bubs. I have also been told if you feel the back of bubs neck that is their true body temp IYKWIM??

Nightime is wondersuit + Sleeping bag.
Daytime is bond singlet suit, with long sleeve T-shirt and pants, and a jumper (our house is pretty cold)
