Babies are very resilient about temperature, I think if it is comfortable for you, the baby will be fine, if the baby appears hot to the touch or cold, just adjust the clothing.


When it was very hot here and my daughter was a baby, she wore only a diaper and a diaper cover.

Babies do ok if they feel cold, it's the heat they can't take. It's worse to over dress them than it is to under-dress them.


In the summer I always kept my air conditioner on 70. My son was always a warm baby. He'd sweat a lot.


I think if you stick with breathable cotton clothing/blankets/hats and check the baby- you'll be fine. If you swaddle the baby check to be sure she is not sweating or over-heating. Every baby is different.


I always kept my son in thin cotton with the air conditioner on, since he was a warm baby.
