Baby, it’s cold outside! But hey, the show must go on. Yep, that’s right… You and your bundle of joy can’t stay cooped up at home until spring. Even during the winter months, going outside can be a great activity for your family’s mental and physical health. So now is the time to winterize your little one’s wardrobe. What does that mean, exactly?
First know this: baby loses heat much faster than you do. So a good rule of thumb to live by throughout the cold season is to dress baby as you do, but with one extra later — an AAP recommendation to ensure that your babe stays cozy without overheating.
Trust us, this will come in handy when you go in and out of the house with little ones in tow. Also, since it’s not recommended to have babies and toddlers wear puffy coats in the car seat, layers and accessories become all the more important. So for now, forget about puffy coats and snow buntings. Layering essentials are where it’s at.
Now that you’ve got your winter basics down, it’s time to get into gear… winter gear, that is. Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here’s a list of winter clothes for babies and toddlers that will get your little one through his first snow without a meltdown — plus some for adults, too. 🙂
