Little Treehouse Tips: Beat the Heat and Help Your Child Sleep Soundly

by @LittleTreehouseBangkok on December 15, 2023

As parents, we all want our children to sleep soundly and wake up feeling refreshed. But when the Bangkok heat waves hit, even the best bedtime routines can be disrupted. Fear not, Little Treehouse Nursery is here to help! 

Sleeping Cool: The Ideal Temperature for Your Child 

Babies typically sleep best in a room temperature between 16-20 degrees Celsius. However, our tropical climate often throws us a curveball. Here are some tips to adjust your child’s sleep environment during hot weather:


  • Less is More: Ditch the extra layers! Aim for comfortable clothing like tank tops, pajamas, or just a diaper. 
  • Feeling Too Hot? Diapers only might be the way to go! 
  • Breathable Bedding: Opt for lightweight sheets instead of heavy blankets. 

Cooling Down the Room

  • Air Circulation: Open windows for fresh air and turn on a fan (not directly aimed at your child). 
  • DIY Cooling: Hang a wet cloth near a window or fan to cool the air. 
  • Waterproof Sheets? Not Today! Ditch the waterproof sheets and use regular sheets or stacked towels for better airflow. 
  • Sunshine Blockers: Close curtains during the day to keep the room cool. 

Sleeping On-the-Go

  • Stroller Sleeps: Stay vigilant! Your child can quickly overheat in a stroller. 
  • Never Leave Your Child in a Car: Even with open windows, parked cars can become scorching hot. 

Additional Tips

  • Give a lukewarm bath before bedtime. 
  • Offer cool drinks throughout the day. 
  • Create a calming bedtime routine. 
  • Be patient and understanding, hot weather can disrupt sleep patterns. 

Remember, every child is different. Experiment and find what works best for your little one to ensure a restful night’s sleep even during the hottest days. 

At Little Treehouse Nursery, our dedicated staff is committed to providing a nurturing and comfortable environment for all our children. We implement these tips and more to ensure your child sleeps soundly and wakes up feeling refreshed, ready to explore and learn in our stimulating kindergarten and preschool classrooms. 

Together, let’s beat the heat and create a happy and healthy summer for our little ones!
