Keep your little one bundled up at the weather cools off. Here are a few of our favorite ways to keep your baby cozy on the go.
1. Wear the baby
Keep baby snuggled up away from the elements in a baby carrier. You will be able to easily tell if the baby is getting too hot or too cold if you are wearing them in a carrier.
This Skip Hop Three Season Footmuff is great for taking walks as the temperature drops. You can easily remove the winter layer as you head indoors to keep your baby the perfect temperature. This is a great feature for shopping with a napping child! As the winter near, it’s a must-have in colder climates for trick or treating or outdoor holiday light displays.
Wearing a bulky winter coat in a car seat is NOT a safe choice. How can you tell if their coat is too puffy? Put your baby in their carseat while wearing their coat. Unbuckle the seat, but do not loosen the straps. Remove the straps and re-buckle the seat. If there is a lot of slack in the straps, that coat is too bulky to wear in the car. A fleece jacket is a good option. Your child can put their arms through their coat once they are buckled in or use a blanket for extra warmth. Keeping a blanket in the car is a good idea in case of emergencies, too.

6. Leg Warmers
If your little one is wearing a dress, add a pair of leg warmers to keep their little legs from freezing.
Enjoy the changing seasons with your baby! Hope you both stay warm!
