Anyone use a window AC for their babies room?
DS is 3 months old, he is still sleeping in our room in the bassinet, though in the next month we want to try to transition him into his crib. We don’t have AC and always used window units.
We had to convert our upstairs attic into living space. We added 2 bedrooms and a bathroom which are great but not so much in the summer because it’s an attic space and gets incredibly hot, so we need window units up there blasting to cool it down. The last 2 weeks here it’s been into the 70’s and the upstairs is already hot and stuffy so Darling Husband and I now starting to wonder what we should do about keeping it cool.
I was worried about the window AC blowing and chilling the baby, looked into the stand alone ACs but you still need to vent it out the window.
Any thoughts on this?

We don’t have window A/Cs, but I would think it would be similar to what you should/shouldn’t do with windows and vents. I think that if you place the crib in a part of the room where there’s good circulation, but the baby isn’t in the direct path of the a/c unit, you should be okay.
Maybe check with your pediatrician to see what he/she recommends?
Or, would moving the master upstairs and keeping the baby in your current room work?

Is it possible for you to put a large enough AC unit in one bedroom and leave the doors open so that the cool air goes into the baby’s room and then have a ceiling fan on to help circulate the air?

@mwitter80: Thanks. I hope the OP finds a solution. 🙂

@beekiss: I agree. A large A/C unit should be able to cool a large space and a fan would make it even more pleasant.
