5 Tips to Keep Your Baby Warm on Cold Winter Nights
One of the most common challenges faced by all parents is to keep their little one’s cosy and warm during the cold winter days. In the winter season, especially when it’s freezing outside, it becomes really difficult for babies to regulate their body temperature, which makes them more vulnerable to coughs, colds and the flu.
Here are some of our top tips to keep your Little One warm over the next few months:
- Practice Safe Sleeping Practices
For your baby’s safety, it is important to follow safety protocols for infant sleep. Here are some important highlights:
- A baby should sleep on their back for every sleep
- They should sleep on a firm surface
- Soft objects should not be placed in the crib
- Keep a Humidifier Running
Since you will be running your heat you must keep a humidifier running also. This helps to prevent your baby from getting a common cold or becoming irritated from the hot air.
- Have the Right Fitted Sheets
Since babies shouldn’t sleep with loose objects, investing in the perfect fitted sheets are a must. Soft fitted cribs sheets are soft, warm and provide a layer of comfort to your infant’s sleep.
- Layers, Layers, Layers
If your baby is out of a swaddle there are some other great options to keep your baby warm at night:
- Swaddle Blankets
- Sleep Sacks
- Footed Pyjamas
- Cover Your Baby’s Head & Hands
Babies lose a lot of heat through their heads and hands, so it becomes super important to get a soft baby cap and lightweight mittens to give your little one an extra layer of warmth.
