Required clothes for a winter newborn
In winter, in severe frost, we want to wrap ourselves up warmer, and, if possible, do not leave the warm apartment. How to dress a tiny little man who was born in winter or late autumn, so that he would feel comfortable walking? Our lovely and kind grandmothers have always adhered to the iron rule on this issue - it is necessary to put on a baby one thing more than an adult puts on. So it was when we were all dressed in cotton and wool, so the clothes for the winter newborn were multilayered.
Today, the kids were much more fortunate. Clothing for them is made of heat-resistant fabrics, they perfectly preserve heat. Therefore, at an air temperature of -15 degrees, your karapuz does not need additional insulation. Winter clothing for newborns must meet the following requirements:
- material - 100% cotton;
- simple and convenient fasteners (buttons, zippers);
- Must have a wide mouth;
- should not require complex care, shedding.
As a rule, clothes for a winter newborn consists of the following items:
- pampers, sliders, raspashka, cap, socks;
- lightweight overalls with closed handles and legs or panties and blouse;
As for the third "layer", it can vary in accordance with the wishes of the parents. It can be a coverall-transformer in fur (down) with closed handles and legs, or a warm and cozy envelope on the sheepskin.
How to understand if the child is comfortable walking? Newborn babies quickly overheat and supercooled. If the outside is a light frost, and the child is too warmly clothed, he can sweat first and then freeze. It is believed that it is enough to touch the baby's nose from time to time - if it's cold, your baby freezes!
At temperatures below twenty degrees, we advise you to give up walking or to reduce it to fifteen minutes. It is better in this weather, dress the child, as for going out, but without the winter overalls, and ventilate the apartment well, opening the window or window leaf. Make sure that at this time the baby is not in a draft.
As a rule, the mother intuitively feels how it is necessary to dress the baby. But some of them are kidding their children, while others are hardening. Modern children's winter clothes for newborns are very reliable, but if you belong to the category of moms who, contrary to all the tips, overly wear their babies, at least make sure that the child's back and neck are dry.
If you belong to the opposite group, remember that the clothes for the winter newborn should fully correspond to the temperature outside the window. Hardening should be carried out under the supervision of a specialist, gradually and accurately.
Quite often, manufacturers guarantee that clothing for a winter newborn is able to protect the crumb at a temperature of -15 degrees. However, you should always make an amendment to our climate. If the humidity of the air is slightly increased or there is a strong wind in the street, the child can easily freeze and catch cold.
