What happens if your baby’s body temperature is too cold? If the core temperature of the body falls below 89.6 degrees Fahrenheit, it may lead to hypothermia. So, too cold a temperature can be harmful for infants. The area of the brain that controls body temperature isn’t fully developed until the age of 4, which makes children below that age at a greater risk of hypothermia.
What should your baby’s room temperature be at night?

When to keep an eye on Your Baby’s temperature? Even in warmer months, it’s important to monitor your baby’s temperature to make sure they’re warm enough, especially indoors.

Do you bundle up when your baby is cold? When you are hot, you take a layer off and when you are cold, you bundle up. It’s simple for an adult. Babies can’t do this, though. They need you to keep a watchful eye and help them regulate their temperatures. This is true during the day and during the night.
