How to dress your baby in winter
A sleeper with a onesie underneath is usually fine.
If your home is cooler, add a light sweater.
Sweating or flushed cheeks? Remove a layer.
Cold cheeks or hands? Add a layer or soft cotton hat.
Use a snowsuit and blanket with the stroller.
On cold or windy days, use a stroller shield.
If your baby is sweating, remove the blanket.
Don't venture outside in extreme conditions, such as a snowstorm.
Stay indoors when the temperature is 20°F or lower.
A sleep sack is the safest option for keeping your baby warm.
Use a sleeveless sleep sack over a sleeper and onesie.
Make sure there is nothing else in the crib or bassinet.
Aim for a temperature between 65°F and 70°F.
