What temperature should your child’s bedroom be at night?

One of the most common arguments in the home between parents over their children is how warm or cool the bedroom should be at night.


One of the most common arguments in the home between parents over their children is how warm or cool the bedroom should be at night. 

Usually, Mom will say warmer and Dad will opt for cooler. Maybe these polar opposites follow on from our own preferred room temperature, as men seem to generally prefer a cooler room and women a warmer one. 

Turns out there’s a biological reason for this heated argument between men and women. The fairer sex tend to conserve more heat around their core organs, which means less heat circulates throughout the rest of their body. This explains why most women will complain the house/car being too cool and reach for the thermostat. 

But back to our children. What is the ideal temperature for their bedrooms at night? 

Generally speaking, cooler is better. Ideally, the bedroom should be between 65 and 70 degrees fahrenheit. As a rule of thumb, if adults are comfortable in the home in a T-shirt, then the temperature in the bedroom is probably about right. If your child’s room is too warm, then the risk of SIDS increases among young infants. And of course it makes sense that if the bedroom is too cool, then chances are your child will wake up because he or she is cold.
