restrict heat to bathroom PLEASE!

I have a heating issue and could use some input.

I have a full bath on my 1st floor with a forced hot air heat system, and the vent is shared with the upstairs 2nd floor. The heat to the bathroom is SO INTENSE that it becomes a sauna! If i shut it off completely, then it gets too cold.

How can i slow the air flow? Should i just buy a smaller vent? Should I install the bathroom's own heating unit w/ thermostat to regulate temp?

Only open the vent partway
Continue to open it until comfort level is reached
