Default What size heat lamp?

I know I'd need to get a thermometer and a thermostat, but I'd like them to have to be used as little as possible. Therefore:

In a plastic tub as a cage that is about 4.22 square feet with several layers of cloth bedding along with cuddle sacks, what size heat lamp/how many watts would the lamp be?

Some of the options:
5.5" Diameter
Cord: 6' Length
75 Watts

8.5" Diameter
Cord: 6' Length
150 Watts

10" Diameter
Cord: 6' Length
250 Watts
