I'm leaving for Florida tomorrow with a 7 month old. I live in Canada where it has been very cold pretty much since he was born, so I have no idea what to pack. If you live in Florida, or a similar climate I need your help. What do your babies sleep in? My son sleeps in a sleeper plus his 2.5tog grobag. I'd appreciate your help! I was planning on putting him in a onesie and his grobag during the day, and dress him the same at night ( I figure it will feel that same at night, because we obviously have heat in our house way up here!)

Thanks!!

Well the mornings are chilly and lately it hasnt gotten up to the 70's. windy right now it is about to rain. the pollen is terrible so if you two have allergies please pack your meds. bring pants, light jackets u can wear shorts depending on you. the temp\lately hasnt been over 73 and that is usually later in the afternoon. mornings can be chilly but not cold. have shorts or something comfortable for the inside.

Hi Melissa,



I live in the Central Florida area (on the coast, due east from Orlando).  We've been having really lovely weather here lately.  Right now it's 70 degrees and breezy, but later this afternoon it will probably get to about 75 degrees.  At night, it's been getting down into the mid/low 60's...great sleeping weather.  During the day I leave my windows open and my son wears shorts and a tshirt or just a onesie and shorts.  At night, we close the windows and turn on the air just to keep it in the 70's inside and I put him to bed with pj's...a two piece with long sleeves and long pants.  He sleeps fine like that.  Hope this helps and welcome to Florida in advance!

What part of Florida are you going to? I'm in Central Florida (close to Disney World). It's warm here right now. In the 80's. My little guy is 6 weeks old. At night I dress him in a sleeper with his sleep sack (same as a Grobag but it has velcro tabs and stays shut better). I have a light one and a fleece one. Right now he just wears the light one. I also put a onesie on him for bed. The nights go down into the 50/60's so that's chilly for us. During the day if we are staying home he's usually in a onesie with a pair of Babylegs (www.babysnazz.com in case you haven't seen them..lol). Or a light one piece outfit. No onesie. If we go out it's just a light outfit right now while it's in the 80's. If it's a little cooler I usually add a onesie. Hope that helps. Send me a message if you have anymore questions. I can help you find the weather in other areas too.
