It's your job as a new parent to keep your baby cozy and warm during the winter season. But if you're like most new parents, you know it's challenging to keep your baby cozy in a big bulky jacket with a diaper bag over your shoulder.
The good news is that there are a few ways you can keep your baby warm and comfortable even on the most frigid of winter nights.
Set the room temperature
Babies aren't able to regulate their body temperature yet, which means keeping them comfortable is up to you. Set your thermostat between 64 and 68 degrees to keep your baby from feeling too hot or too cold.
Make sure to check your baby's room temperature, too. It ought to feel comfortable for a lightly clothed adult. Use a room thermometer if you're not sure whether the temperature is safe.
Keep the wind away from baby
You may already know it's important to protect your baby from wind chill when you're outside. But it's also good to keep cool drafts and wind off them when they're indoors, too.
Place your baby's crib or bassinet away from air vents, drafty windows, outside walls, and fans. Make sure to close doors and windows to prevent chilly air from entering your baby's room.
Keep baby's head and hands covered
Newborns typically lose a lot of heat through their head and hands. A soft baby cap and mittens can help to give your baby a little extra warmth when they need it.
Consider having an extra pair of mittens on hand in case one of them gets lost. Socks are also important to keep your baby's feet warm and cozy.
