Bringing home a newborn can be scary and challenging. Add that to all the other concerns you’ll have as new parents, overlooking your baby’s room temperature will be one of the things that slip many new parents’ minds and will be the last thing you’ll think about before your bub’s arrival. Once you’re home though, you’ll ask yourself 100 + times a day, “Is my baby warm or cool enough?”. Soon, you’ll realise that a room temperature thermometer is an essential part of a baby’s nursery!
Why is room temperature so important?
Overheating has been implicated in SUDI for many years. Avoiding overheating has been one of the strategies to reduce the risk of SUDI.
Should I heat or cool my baby’s room if it gets too hot or cold?
Babies control their temperature predominantly through the face and head. It is not necessary to leave the heating or cooling on all night, as long as the baby is dressed appropriately for the room temperature.
The Groegg is the Gro Company’s #1 Selling Nursery Product and has been a trusted digital baby room thermometer that Aussie mums have been using in what seems like forever.
