This guide will help you figure out how many layers your baby needs for bed

Just when we thought the warm weather had left it returns!

It can be hard during summer to judge, how many layers are too many when it comes to putting the baby to bed.

I know myself I worry when my daughter kicks off all her blankets during the night. Despite the Irish weather being much warmer than we're used to the past couple of months, I'm still convinced that she'll get a chill.

If like me you're finding yourself unsure of how to dress your baby for bed, this handy guide by Baby Sound Asleep is just what you need.

Created by Baby Sound Asleep, the guide gives clear and concise advice on what outfits will work best for each temperature, from below 16 degrees to over 27 degrees.

With Ireland having a particularly good summer, babies don't need to be wrapped up as warmly as they usually do, but as mums, we still worry about them not being covered up enough.

This guide is really useful but of course, all babies are different so you may have to go through some trial and error to find out what works best for you and your baby.

Keeping your baby in the correct amount of clothing, especially during the summer, can also help prevent SIDS.

I personally think the best judge of how many layers they need is the baby themselves and if they're kicking off all the blankets it's probably best to let them.
