Heater for babies room

What is the best way to heat up a babies room during winter? We have an oil heat and sometimes put on a halogen heater in addition. is this safe for a newborn baby? Will the air dry out? We try to maintain 21 oC room temperature.

This temperature seems to be correct, but only use the oil heater. Do not make the room too hot.

Hi Eze,

We also use an oil heater in our LG' s room, but I also use a humidfier to keep the air moist, and she seems happy!

We also installed a panelheater, and it makes no difference to the room. Have to use a oil heater.

Hi Eze,

We have installed a econo panelheater in our LG' s room since she was a newborn last year May and it uses little electrisity, doesn' t dry the air and heats her room up to about 19/20/21 degrees during the COLD winter nights.
