As the days and the nights have been getting considerably colder, it is essential that babies and little ones are kept warm and comfortable. This not only helps with their health, but also ensures that they enjoy all of the excitement that the outdoors has to offer especially with the run up to the festive season. Here at Daisy Baby we have put together a list of our special winter warmers along with a few tips to help keep baby warm this winter. So during the Christmas shop or even at home you can be assured that your child will feel cosy and happy even on the coldest of days.
Shopping and Pushchair Accessories
Whilst out and about, it is a constant struggle to control your babies climate. When out shopping the constant dashing in and out of shops and the sudden changes in heating can make numerous layers feel uncomfortable. Try and keep babies warm whilst they are out and about by using a comfortable foot muff. This will keep feet and the lower body nice and warm whilst still letting the fresh air reach their upper body. Also add a few extra blankets in with your pushchair just in case you feel your baby getting a little more chilly as you go outside.
Bad Weather and Coats
Of course winter is full of nice dry days but for those days that are cold and damp make sure that you supply your baby with the appropriate waterproofs. Ponchos are great for light showers but to really keep your baby warm try placing them in a fleeced lined waterproof for maximum protection against the elements. For pushchairs there are also rain covers that help to keep baby dry and protected against freezing rain.
Hats Gloves and Accessories
Most of the heat from babies escapes from their head and limbs so make sure that you keep them covered up with hats and gloves. Dress your baby in tops with long sleeves and jumpers that allow skin to breathe but also keep the cold out. A onesie or all in one also acts as a great under layer as it stops tummies and backs being exposed to the cold air especially as they are running or wriggling around.
When you are at home with baby there is still a possibility that they may get cold, especially closer to Christmas. Central heating is always an asset for little ones but on really cold days, add an extra blanket in the cot and make sure that they are wearing socks around the house. For very small babies, sleeping bags are perfect for making them feel safe and protected whilst still having room to wiggle their feet. Hooded towels for babies are also great after baths as it stops them from catching a chill before they are dressed.
