Q.

Aircon in baby''s room

Prof, is it safe to put on the aircon (on heater) in our baby''s room at night at 20 degrees? I find that it helps during the night, especially in the morning hours when the temp drops significantly and she has kicked off all the blankets. At least I then know that she is not cold. I switch off the aircon at around 05:30 in the morning so that her room slowly adjust to the rest of the house''s temperature. Is this not healthy for her? She is 1 years old. Thank you!

This should be safe as long as the filters on the aircon are cleaned regularly.
