    yes of cos! when they are born, in hospital, they are ALRDY in aircon room. haha! at night we will let him wear long sleeve shrit n pants + cover him with his blanket.

    i wrapped ds until 1 WEEK old only. cos he dun lik to be wrapped up and my pd said shd let his hands n legs our to exercise. my mum also supports this idea, so aft 1 week, we stop wrapping him. =)

    Same here. Both of us were, and still are, sleeping in aircon room. The weather these days are simply too hot. Quan sleeps with long sleeve top, long pants and blankets. I also use sleep bag as he is getting active and will kicks his blanket away.

    As for wrapping; I did that occasionally during the confinement month.

    All along sleeping in aircon room. My boy perspires easily, I think he sleeps better in aircon room when he's comfortable and cool.

    I swaddled him in the first few weeks but not much help in getting him to sleep. So we eventually removed that. Besides, he likes to stretch his hands and legs, so after a while, the swaddling cloth will be kicked off. :p

    Yes can sleep in air con room

    But do not for stuffy noses. Since NB has shorter nasal passages and smaller as well so it can get stuffed from the cold and dry air.

    My newborn sleeps in an aircon room with us and his sister. I will put his sleepwear on (covers his legs and long sleeves) and covers him with a blanket. I dun swaddle him anymore as yeah... he doesnt like it too. Did it juz couple weeks only. We will put it at 23 degrees celsius all nite. So its not too cold nor too stuffy. And yeah.. my babies sleep soundly in an aircon room. :D

    Besides when just born in hosiptal, my baby has never sleep in aircon...
    Just out of curiosity: mummies who let babies to sleep in aircon room, do they get colds/flu/coughs easily?

    my son do not get colds easily, only time he get sick is when he startedteething.a rule of thumb to determine if air con is too cold, touch baby's face and ears, if they are cold, turn up the thermostat

    we have our girl sleep in air con room at night -- asked the hospital what temperature is their nursery and they said 25 degrees so we have it at 24 in the room... we swaddle her at night and i think she sleeps better with it.

    About 25 degree Celsius room temperature is the most ideal.
    My boy slept in air-con room at night since birth; for naps since a few months old as he perspires easily and gets eczema rashes. Now, he sleeps in air-con room in singlet/diaper in the day and short-sleeves/pants at night.

    He needed a big sense of security to sleep well and had 'flying arms' until 6+ months, so he was swaddled for 6+ months! It helped him sleep well but not healthy for limps development, so need to give him lots of exercise time when he's awake.

    Yes for my boy. He gets cough easily. But that's also coz he's exposed to the germs more from infant care.

    I feel that as long as you ensure that his room is generally clean and dust free, it should be ok.

    My boy gets frequent coughs because he likes to breathe with his mouth because his nose gets blocked from the dry air con air.

    If you use air conditioning, make sure he can breathe properly through his nose.

    ds used to fell ill easily but was coughin. when he was btwn 2-5mths old. but now, so far so good. as long as the temp is not below 24degree, and u let him wear long sleeve/pants + cover with blanket if u think is too cold for him, shd be alright.
