By dress the newborn in winter we mean at a temperature that reaches up to 16 ° C, and let’s see how he must be dressed to be at home, outdoors, and during his sleeping hours.
How To Dress The Newborn In Winter At Home
Today, thanks to the technological advancement of heating our homes, we can afford to heat the house in a homogeneous way, therefore having the same heat for all the rooms. This allows us to avoid covering ourselves with layers upon layers of clothing so as not to lose heat from the body, this also applies to newborns.
In fact, wool, in newborn clothing, has lost its role as an insulator, that is, insulator, which it always had in the past when houses were cold and heated in areas. If you make the baby wear it in direct contact with the skin, you will have only the disadvantages related to irritation.
It is better to opt for:
the body in cotton or warm cotton with short sleeves, and long sleeves only when leaving the hospital and for the following days;
socks, in cotton or warm cotton, to be evaluated based on the temperature and whether to also put them under the onesie with feet. If the jumpsuit has feet we recommend those in cotton, if it does not have them then a warmer material such as interlock cotton (warm cotton or fleece cotton) is better;
the onesies can be in warm cotton or in cotton with long sleeves, with or without feet;
the outfits are made up of a T-shirt or headband and a gaiter. We always recommend warm cotton or cotton and the same rule applies here to socks.
How To Dress The Newborn In Winter For Sleep:
During the night, the temperature also drops in the house. It is therefore better to be aware that when we put the baby to sleep it must be covered more.
But don’t make the mistake of covering them too much because it could be dangerous! Remember that newborn babies do not make great movements when they sleep so there is no danger that they can discover themselves. We usually always find them as we left them.
In this case, you can dress your newborn like this:
the short-sleeved cotton bodysuit
long-sleeved jumpsuit or outfit in warm cotton or chenille
heavy chenille cover.
When they move more and therefore we risk finding them uncovered, you can use a sleeping bag or a pajama without a hood:
the short-sleeved cotton bodysuit
cotton jumpsuit or outfit
sleeping bag or pajama
How To Dress Your Newborn Outside The Home In Winter
When you go out you have to pay attention to the outside temperatures and I would cover the baby well but without exaggerating. In this case, unlike staying at home, wool is recommended in case of excessive cold and other heavier and heat-retaining fabrics such as chenille.
You must also consider that the pram and the stroller have basic, and in most models, padded elements that protect from the cold and therefore would not need other covers. We always recommend having a blanket handy, even in cotton, in case you pick up the little one or pull him out of the wheelchair, to wrap him up avoiding thermal shocks.
In both cases, dress The Newborn In Winter must be dressed rationally:
the body in cotton or warm cotton with short sleeves or long sleeves;
cotton socks under the onesie or the gaiter;
the onesie or the long-sleeved suit must be in chenille or wool (if the temperatures are extremely low) or in warm cotton. Both with long sleeves and with feet;
the down jacket;
the cover in case of low temperatures.
Remember that the newborn must feel free in his movements, otherwise, the constriction could shake and annoy him, ending up sweating. We would like to advise against the combinations of rompers and sweaters and a down jacket because he would not be able to move.
