Coming from England where they say a baby’s room temperature should be between 16-19°C, I found the high temperature here in Singapore extremely disconcerting when Baby C was born. I am not a fan of aircon because when we leave it on at night, everyone seems to end up with colds, and we also end up with an extortionate electricity bill. My paediatrician said a room temperature of 25-27°C is fine, but it took me a while to be convinced Baby C wouldn’t overheat in her room where the temperature hovers around 27°C.
I came across these ones from Snoozaboo in Malaysia. With cute designs, only 0.5 tog, 100% combed soft cotton fabric and costing SGD$49.72 (0-6 months), they are perfect. Baby C sleeps in a vest and lightweight sleeping bag, with a fan on in her room.
You can see the rest of their collection here (sizes up to 18 months and 1 tog options too).
