Babies hold temperature better than us adults so keep that in mind. They are like little furnaces.

If it gets really cold I just put a hoodie over my son’s pj’s.

Depending on the babies age you can always swaddle them in a heavier duty sleep sack.  For my son we just did layers. A onsie underneath fottie pj’s

Halo sleep sacks (the fleece ones) are super warm. Just a onesie and one of those keeps my baby warm.

A base layer of merino wool is always a good option as it breathes so you don’t need to worry about overheating

I think I am going to do just a long sleeved onesie and a fleece sleep sack.  I keep my setting at 65 at night during cold months.  It is only now getting that cold out, before she just used a long sleeved (or short sleeved in summer/fall) onesie and cotton sleep sack.  Overheating is associated with an increased SIDS risk, so I’d err on baby being too cold rather than too hot.  SIDS cases are increased in winter months.  So remember not to go overboard!  Fleece is pretty warm.

And you don’t need to base it on the temperature outside, just the temperature of the nursery.

CherryA:  Yes, I think a cheap thermometer for the nursery would be a good idea!  Otherwise, I would just think about what you would wear for sleeping.  Babies should wear the same layers as you, plus one extra layer.
