If you are a new parent who is wondering how to layer up your baby to protect from the cold, here is the answer.
The key to fight cold is by layering your child. It is advised that you layer because you can swiftly add or remove layers based on the temperature. Let’s say you are in a car or room with a heater; then you can remove one layer or two. If you are going out to a park, you can add one more layer to keep your baby warm. Most importantly, it is advised that you stay indoors unless it is requisite because you don’t want your child to get a cold.
The universal guide is to put as many layers as you are wearing and plus one layer for the baby. If you have three layers on your body, then put on three layers for your baby and add one more layer. The last layer could be a scarf or overcoat or hoodie.
You can follow the below steps if you are confused.
- Layer one can be a bodysuit with footies and full sleeves.
- For the second layer, you can swaddle or go for a pair of pants and a t-shirt
- Finally, you can cover your baby with a beanie, pair of mittens and boots.
When you are going out, please do ensure that you use a beanie and cover your baby’s ears too.
