Most of the western websites suggest to keep the room temperature at around 20 or 22.
But where I live, the max temperature during the summer is often around 40 degree Celcius, and even at night it is above 28.
Majority of the population here cannot afford an air-conditioner and manage with a fan, but the babies manage to do okay.
So are these temperature recommendations more suitable for babies in western nations or is it universal? I am just wondering if I should somehow shift to a different house and invest in an air-conditioner. (My current house has an old traditional roofing of the area which has way too many gaps - probably for ventilations)
I really appreciate your help.
Maybe this isn't has to do with many other factors, however, In Indian Union where I live, nations like Kerala and Tamil Nadu which experience higher average temperature has better infant mortality rate compared to states with significantly cooler average temperature such as Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh.
