Anyways... to keep her warm (which it hasn't been too bad yet this year) and I mean really toasty warm sans covers, I will dress her in a blanket sleeper with a long sleeved onesie (underneath) and leggings or really long socks.
Reason why I think blankets are okay in the family bed but not cribs... You are right there beside them in the family bed, so should they accidentally get covered up completely, they will let you know and you are right there to fix it, while babies in cribs are farther away and there is more of a chance you might not hear them right away.
I know yours is only 4 months so I think layering him up really well will do just fine. You could always pull one of those small space heaters in the bedroom just for night time use only to keep the room warmer as well. Good luck!
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

The only thing I could come up with was layers, and an easily removeable blanket sleeper. i dress her like i would when she sleeps with us, and toss a sleeper on her.
I don't think there's an easy solution, especially when they can't tell you if they are hot or cold!
I haven't been able to find all cotton blanket sleepers, and don't want to put ds in poly...
so we've been dressing him in a thick cotton sweatshirt and sweatpants.
plus, I am constantly covering him back up,AND dh...kicking off covers must be a guy thing in our fam!!
So...what temp is recommended?
