Choosing Winter Clothes for Babies

Sandra Sully

It is sometimes a bit difficult to decide how to dress up your kid for chilly weather. Specially infants, since you don’t know whether they are really comfortable or not. If you are worried about dressing up your kid with too many layers or whether you are dressing them up with less clothes. Take a look at these tips to see the best ways to make sure your kid is in the right clothes when it is cold.

Add Layers

It is a good idea to add a couple of layers when dressing up the baby, even when they are inside. Use a bodysuit or an onesie to begin with and add a top layer to it. If the baby is dressed up in long pants and a top, make sure to use socks to cover their feet. Think of how you would wear and try to layer up the baby’s clothes in a similar manner. For outside use an extra layer such as a snowsuit, or use a blanket to wrap the little one up.

Comfy Sleepwear

No matter how much you want to protect your baby from the cold, remember to keep them comfortable when they sleep. Remember that an infant’s sleeping method is influenced by what they are dressed in and comfortable clothes can help them to sleep better. Make sure your little one is not too sweaty or overheated. This may even keep them awake the whole night. Check their neck when they are sleeping to see if they are too hot. Don’t opt for very thick blankets either. Instead use something like a cotton blanket with footed pyjamas or pyjamas with socks. But if they sleep with you in bed, they might need less clothing than when they sleep alone as they are protected by your body heat.

Keep the Feet Warm

Always remember to keep their feet warm. Using onesies will help you to do this. When you cannot use onesies you can keep the baby’s feet covered with a pair of socks and when outside, with appropriate shoes. Wool shoes are a good way to keep them warm when you are outside. Try to check his/ her belly and toes when you come in from being outside. If the baby has a warm belly and warm toes she is overdressed. If they are cold, she needs more covering up.

A Little Bit of Extra

Onesies, snowsuits and socks are not always enough to keep little ones warm. Sometimes you need a little extra something to make sure they are protected from the cold weather. Use mittens to keep their hands warm, especially if you are taking them outside. A hat that covers the baby’s face properly is also needed. Make sure they cover the chin and ears specially. When they are in strollers zip up the stroller bags to protect their legs and feet from cold wind.

Never forget the fact that you have to dress the babies depending on the time. Outside, inside and sleeping will require different ways of covering them up. Therefore, before dressing them always consider what you are dressing them for.

Clothing Tips for Newborn Babies

Sandra Sully

Have you got a little one on the way? Or did you just gain a new addition to your family? One of the main things that you have to consider with the arrival of a new baby is to plan their clothes or outfits. This can come across as a difficult task, especially for first time moms. After all your little ones has no way of telling you about what clothes are good and what are bad. Here are some tips to help you to shop for your newborn.

Onesies

You can never go wrong with an onesie when there is a baby involved. So if you are planning to go on shopping newborn clothes, add onesies to the top of your list. On main reason for their popularity is that they stay in place even when the babies fidget and throw tantrums. Another feature is that you can snap it from the bottom making it easier to use. In the place of an onesie you can still use something similar like a wrap shirt or long pyjamas. The snaps in the front of wrap shirts makes it easier on the sensitive umbilical cord.

Footwear

Never take you kid out your home without covering their feet. This has to be done all the time as baby feet are too sensitive and get cold easily. You will of course be in an advantage if you are making you baby wear an onesie but those who stuck to wrap shirts and long pyjamas, you will definitely have to add socks. It is also easier for you if you get socks that are one size large than the baby’s actual shoe size. Since babies grow fast, this will help you to make use of old pairs for a long time without throwing them away after using them only for a few times. When you take the little one out, it is also necessary that you make them wear shoes.

Additional /Items or Accessories

One of the accessories that are really important for babies are the headwear- Caps that covers not only the head but also their ears. This factor is essential during colder months. However, in summer where you only have to protect the baby from harsh sunlight, covering the head of the baby will be enough. You will also have to use mittens to keep the away from cold as well as to stop them from scratching themselves. These accessories you often need when you are outside and you will not need them when you just hand around your place. In winter months you can add a blanket to the list of accessories too.

Some might tell you that taking care of a baby is hard work and that babies do get easily hurt. But while this can be a stressful task to take care of another life, when you know the right way to take care of them and treat them, you will in no way harm them.
