We did this when we visited relatives for about a week when ds was about two months old; it worked great for us. I felt like if my face was by his, then his would also be uncovered. But I also did what someone else said, I think, that is to use an extra blanket to keep my shoulder warm.
The room we stayed in was actually about 58-60*. A nursing tank under a button-up flannel or fleece shirt should help you stay okay while nursing
Oh, and you may want to consider socks for your l.o. under footy p.j.s--I felt so sad when I found cold toesies under the sleeper! Also, I don't think you're overthinking it. I think you're planning ahead to make sure you're all okay this winter. And I don't think you have to crank up the heat (if it is even possible for you)--on the opposite extreme, we live in FL and only used the a/c to bring he house down to 89-90* when he was tiny. This summer, we kept it at 86-87* and utilized the fans and enjoyed seeing him run around in just his little cloth dipey
So do what works for your family and keep babies safe from the death trap of blankets Edited by SandiMae - 9/25/13 at 7:26pm
