It can be tempting to wrap your baby up to keep them warm while they sleep. Overheating increases the chances of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Research shows that it’s better for babies to be cooler rather than too hot.

To reduce the risk of overheating, avoid using thick bedding and duvets. Remove any outdoor clothing and hats when you're indoors. During the winter months, they should be firmly tucked in sheets and blankets. This shouldn't be above shoulder height. Well-fitted baby sleep bags are fine for babies to sleep in.

To help, Lullaby Trust has put together some useful advice on safer sleep during the colder months.

Help your baby #sleepsafer this winter. Don’t place their cot next to a radiator. Also, don't have a heat source, like a portable heater, directly aimed at your baby. Babies are unable to regulate their own body temperature. This means they could overheat if they're too close to a radiator or other heat source.

The chance of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is higher in babies who get too hot. Try to keep the room your baby is sleeping in between 16 to 20 degrees Celsius. This feels quite cold to a lot of people, so using a room thermometer can help check the temperature.

Never put hot water bottles or microwavable wheat bags in with your baby in their sleep space. This includes cots, cribs, Moses baskets or beds. This is because they can make your baby too hot.

If you’re worried your baby is cold, add an extra layer of bedding, bedclothes or use a higher tog baby sleep bag. It isn’t vital to warm your baby’s sleep space with a wheat bag or hot water bottle before you put them in it.
