Dress Them Appropriately

The key to keeping your baby warm is dressing them properly. Ensure they wear layers of clothing, such as an undershirt, a sweater, and a coat. It’s also important to cover their head, hands, and feet.

The first layer should be thermal underwear, which helps absorb moisture.

The second layer should be warm clothing like a sweatshirt or a jumper.

The third layer should be a waterproof jacket or coat that protects the baby from wind and rain. It’s also important that your baby’s clothing is comfortable and breathable.

Babies sweat a lot, so it’s crucial that their clothes allow sweat to evaporate.


Keep Their Room Warm

The ideal room temperature for your baby is between 20 and 22 degrees Celsius. If it’s too cold, your baby might catch a cold or even the flu.

If your house doesn’t have central heating, you can use a radiator or a heater to keep your baby’s room warm. You can also place a blanket or a cushion on the radiator or heater to prevent your baby from getting burned.

Offer Liquids Frequently

Babies lose fluids more quickly in the cold, so it’s important to offer them liquids frequently. Water is the best option, but you can also offer them milk, juices, or soups.

Offer your baby water or milk every 2 or 3 hours, even if they’re not thirsty. If your baby is eating solid foods, make sure they consume plenty of liquids.

Avoid Sudden Temperature Changes

When taking your baby outside, dress them warmly and avoid sudden exposure to very cold temperatures. Layer them with clothing, such as a coat, a scarf, and a hat. Start dressing them in advance so they have time to adapt to the outdoor temperature.

Take Them to the Doctor if They Have a Fever If your baby has a fever, it’s important to take them to the doctor as soon as possible. Fever can be a sign of a serious infection. A normal baby temperature is between 36.5 and 37.5 degrees Celsius. If your baby’s temperature exceeds 38 degrees Celsius, take them to the doctor.
