Tips to take care of a Baby during winters
It can get a little overwhelming and confusing for new parents to take care of their babies during the winters. After all, you can’t keep the baby all covered and stay inside the house till winters last. With near zero temperatures, you can’t take the baby outside as they don’t have the ability to regulate their core temperature and can be exposed to hypothermia.
During normal winters, you can limit the outing time and follow below-mentioned tips to keep your baby safe during winters:
1. Dressing in Layers
Make your baby wear a warm jacket along with a blanket to keep them warm. The bottom layer should be body huggings like leggings or a body suit followed by long sleeve shirt/t-shirt and a pant. You can then dress them in jackets, hats, warm boots.
2. Don’t make them Wear Coat in Car
The layering will create a gap between the seat belt and your child which increases the risk of injury during an accident. Instead secure the child first and then make them wear the jacket.
3. Check for Signs
You can’t simply add layers to your baby as they can’t describe how they feel. You need to check the signs of discomfort. If their face gets red, the skin gets warm, and they behave fussy, they may be overheated. On the other hand, if he’s teary-eyed and the skin gets cold, they are not warm enough.
4. Use Carriers
One of the best ways to heat your baby is carrying them in carriers as they give your warmth to the baby. Make sure when you wear the baby, their mouth is not pressed against your chest and their hands and feet are covered.
5. Beware of Covering the Stroller
Do not ever commit the mistake of covering your baby’s stroller with plastic or blanket as it will restrict the air flow and put their life at risk. You can look for a stroller that comes with cover, which allows proper air circulation.
Keep these tips in mind for keeping your baby happy and healthy during winters.
