    Oh wow… I had a heat lamp that was on a stand, and I put it on one side of the box so if the babies got too warm they could go to a cooler area. You have 3 lamps under there?!! I will tag members w/more experience…

    Three lamps seem a little much. I have seen people use just on lamp, and on the side like @ddnene said, so if they get too warm, they can move to the other side. We don't use heat lamps, we use a small box with IV bags that we heat in the microwave and put blankets on top of them so the pups will not get too hot and monitor the temp with a thermometer.

    That is a great idea about the IV bags… learn something new EVERY day on here!!! Lol

    In East Tennessee we use heat lamps for indoor agriculture. Plants do really well... Ralphie

    I forgot to mention that we used a red bulb… maybe they hold the heat better?!!
