No.: If she is acting well, drinking her milk well, making urine and feces normally, gaining weight like she should, then she is likely fine. I always advise dressing a child in the same way that you are comfortable. For example, if you are comfortable in a t shirt then your baby should not be in a sweater and two blankets.
