How To Dress Your Newborn In Winter

When purchasing clothes for your newborn baby there are numerous factors that need to be taken into consideration. Newborn babies have a harder time regulating body temperature than adults. That’s why it's important to make sure that your baby isn’t exposed to extreme heat or extreme cold, and you adapt their clothing to suit the conditions.

Dressing your newborn baby for cold weather is all about layering up and protecting their heads, fingers and toes. Wind combined with freezing temperatures makes it even colder, and a windy winter day can feel much crisper than what it says on the thermometer. Because of this you need to ensure that you have the pefect newborn baby clothes to suit the conditions that your little one is facing.

The Best Newborn Baby Clothes For A Chilly Winter’s Day

  • Layer closest to the body – bodysuit and long underwear, preferably wool.
  • Middle layer – fleece or wool trousers and top or overall so there won’t be any gaps.
  • Outer layer – overall in windproof material.
  • Head – “helmet-style” wool cap is enough if the baby is in a sleeping bag or thick overall.
  • Feet – wool socks, fleece slippers or booties in outer layer material.
  • Hands – hands are usually down in the sleeping bag. If it’s really cold, mittens may be needed. Polarn O. Pyret’s overalls have folding cuffs at sleeves and legs for little hands and feet.
  • Buggy – sleeping bag or combined overall/sleeping bag that works both in the buggy and in the car seat. Two zips make it easy to dress and undress the baby in the buggy

How To Tell If Your Newborn Is To Cold

A simple way to check if your child is too cold is to feel the back of their neck or forehead – if either is cold, you probably need to put an extra layer of clothes on them. If they're too warmly dressed, the chest and the back of their neck will feel warm and sweaty, this means that it’s time to take something off. The hands and feet are often a bit colder than the rest of the body, but that doesn't mean that they should be ice-cold in comparison.

Another top tip would be that newborn babies need to wear a hat when outdoors year-round to protect them from both the cold and when the sunlight is shining.
