How warm is your house?

I live in MO and it is cold here. I routinely wear a tank and either shorts or sweats. My house is kept at 72 or 73 degrees at all times.

Is it warm enough for my little guy to wear a ss onesie and a pair of pants? He has pretty much been in a sleeper since birth and seems to be fine. I just have some many cute onesies that I want to see him in before he outgrows them, but don't want to freeze him out either.

What is your opinion?

I dress the baby the same way I'm dressed. If I'm comfy in a tank top and sweats than I see no reason why the baby shouldn't be in a onesie and pants. Just my

Re: How warm is your house?

Emma often hangs around the house in just a diaper or maybe a diaper and shirt and my house is kept around 74-76 depending on the time of the day. If I start getting cold I'll give her a blanket.

Re: How warm is your house?

Our thermostat is set to 69, but we get full sun all day long so the house is anywhere from 70-72 most winter days when the sun is out. I am always cold though, I will have on long johns and 2-3 shirts with my slippers and not be sweating. I do not dress the kids like me though, my son mostly wears a tshirts and socks around the house, I'm always putting pants on him but he always seem to leave them at the potty.
I guess the kids are dressed like hubby, if he has on a tshirt then i don't worry that anyone is cold.

Keep our house between 68 and 70. Most days she wears a short sleeved onsie and baby legs by about 5 I put her in along sleeve onsie or a t shirt weight sleeper. If I'm fine in a tshirt and pants I figure she must be to. She never feels cool. But she almost always has a blanket with her if she isn't laying on me or dh

Re: How warm is your house?

i think if your house is 73 degrees that's plenty warm enough for short sleeves, etc.

i dress the baby sometime in just a top and a diaper.
the only time i make sure he is bundled up is at night when he's upstairs with us because our bedroom is cold. (we live near Chicago, BTW, so it's been pretty cold here at times )

I keep our house at about 70. I wear sweatpants & a long sleeved shirt/light sweater and have Pipes in a long sleeved footed pj set and keep her covered with a blanket. DD runs around in her long sleeved/long bottomed jammies with socks whenever we aren't going out.

Re: How warm is your house?

it is Texas here so not as cold as most of you but we keep the house around 71 during the day, so baby wears long sleeve Cater's type pj's , gowns and sleep sacks at night with a light flanner blanket to keep her fingers warm.

If she is in the swing she has a blanket on.
