My friend sleeps most nights in a damp t-shirt will this make her sick especially in the cold weather?
Not particularly: Hi, I'd have liked to know why she sleeps in damp Tshirt? Intentionally or does she sweat causing Tshirt to become damp? If weather is cold maybe it's still too warm for her indoors. Most people find it unpleasant and cold to wear/sleep in damp clothing and dampness may cause skin irritation/chaffing but it won't make her catch a cold or other infection if that's what you mean by ill. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you get sick from not wearing gloves and a hat outside during cold weather for more than 4 hours?

No: Being in cold or nasty weather is not the cause of illnesses. Most colds are caused by viruses and weather does not have anything to do with catching colds etc. We get sick by being exposed to someone else who is contagious and from that person we can get ill. ...Read more

Dressing baby: Dress your baby in the same layers that you would be comfortable in - a T-shirt or onesie, a shirt and a sweater.

Since you can't use blankets or pillows, the bunting is going to be the blanket. A cap or hat will also conserve body heat. ...Read more
