Baby winter clothing has to do more than keep a little body warm and dry. A child who needs to be able to move easily, so he shouldn’t be so bundled up that he can’t climb the playground ladder or romp in the snow. Plus, any item that he can pull on or take off himself will be most acceptable to an independent toddler’s me-do-it mind-set. Clearly, it is not easy for parents in dressing kids in winter. Therefore in this entry today, I will share you my experiences in choosing winter clothing for children.
#1: Lay on light layers.
The layers underneath your toddler’s outerwear will help to trap in warmth. Opt for all-cotton shirts, which will feel best against your child’s still-sensitive skin. Steer clear of bulky sweaters, which will make him too hot and will prevent him from moving around easily. Make sure socks aren’t so thick that your toddler’s snow boots won’t fit comfortably over them.
#2: Find a snowsuit that suits your toddler.
You should look for these cold-weather features such as wind and water resistant outer shell nylon is ideal. Or you can choose for your baby a zipper that runs all the way down to the knee or ankle. This will make for stripping ease, especially when it’s time for a diaper change or potty break. Cuffs that fit tightly around ankles and wrists can prevent the cold from creeping in your baby body.
#3: Choose mittens.
If you’ve ever tried to put a glove on a toddler’s hand so that every finger is in the right place, then you know that’s about as easy as diapering a goldfish. Stick with mittens, which are easier to slip on and are warmer because they keep fingers and the heat they produce close together. As with snowsuits, mittens should have a warm inner lining and a weather-resistant shell. And if the mitts don’t come with strings attached, consider purchasing clips to attach them to the sleeves of your toddler’s snowsuit.
