Momma's of three month olds, I'm a nervous wreck about SIDS!! We are transitioning LO from our bed to his own. I know SIDS has to do with temperature. Is 77 degrees in his room too warm?

I've read that fans help because it circulates the air.. I personally think 77 might be too warm but that may just be me

For me yes it's very warm.., my DD wont sleep if the temperature is above 71. We just set ours at 69 she sleeps good in it.., but every babies different some babies tolerate warm temperature but i must say 77 still too warm.

I dont know about exact temperatures but I've always heard/read that as long as you're comfy, babies comfy.

I think between 69-72 is ideal. I keep the bedroom on the cool side. SIDS can happen for various reasons, not just temperature.

And am I correct that there should be no blanket on him?

That might be a bit warm I keep it at 72 and dress baby accordingly and he doesn't wear any blankets and nothing in his crib.

I always put my baby in a sleep sack and I always check the back of her neck to see of she is too hot

I use a blanket, but following sids guidelines you are correct.

I would say around 70 would be best. Also use a sleep sack not a blanket. Just make sure all that is in his crib is a fitted sheet.

My daughters pediatrician suggested us to keep the temp at 68 at night I did start with sleeping sack as well.

Personally, my LO runs a little hot so we keep the room at 68-70. He wears cotton jammies and a Halo Sleep Sack.

How old is your LO ? After 6 months old SIDs decreases a lot! By 60%. Its not just temp. ( i keep mine 71) make sure your crib is free of objects, you can use a blanket following SIDs recommendations, i use sleeping sacks it makes me feel safer.

I also think 77 is very warm! I would turn down the heat and use a sleep sack! Babies a lot of the time get warmer when they sleep!

Keep the temp around 68 to 70! That should be perfect!

I have my 3 month old in a Zipadee zip that's made out of t shirt material with the ac set on 70-72 and her ceiling fan.

Abcs of SIDS. A) alone. Alone by themselves. No adult. No blanket. No stuff animals. B) back. Babies should always be placed to sleep on their backs. If they roll it's fine. C) crib. They should always have their own beds. No co sleeping. These are the guidelines that we use in daycare for our infants.

For us 75 is ideal inside temp.

My baby prefers the heat up at night. Our thermostat will say 75 usually. Right now it says 76. I'm hoping this means lower AC costs in the summer :)
