Tips for Dressing Baby for Winter

If you are a new parent and you are reading this than congratulations on your new baby! Welcome to the joys of parenthood. If you are reading this then you also have questions about dressing your baby for winter. The first thing you need to know is if your child is cold or not. This might sound like a silly statement, but new parents often overdress their child and that could be a danger. One way to determine if your baby is warm enough is to touch their toes and belly as soon as you come in from the cold. You will want their toes to be on the cool side, but not cold, and their belly should be warm to the touch. A baby with warm toes and a warm belly is overdressed and you may need to shed some of those layers. A cool belly means your baby is not able to warm herself and needs another layer and fast.
