Babywearing in cold weather

posted in: Tips and Tricks | 0

As the weather cools down, I’ve had many questions from concerned caregivers on how they can babywear while still making sure all the necessary precautions are taken care of and the worn child is warm, safe and comfortable. BWI of Chicagoland has some important tips on how to babywear in cold weather. Head on over to read how their members safely and properly babywear in the cold!

 

Image reads “Winter wearing: A lesson in layers. When the temperature outside decreases, clothing layers on baby’s extremities increase. Multiple thin layers of long sleeves, pants, socks, mittens and a hat will keep baby’s extremities warm. Watch for over heating and remove a layer of clothing if baby gets too hot. Ensure baby has minimal skin exposed but keep the face clear. In extra cold weather, dress baby in overlapping thin layer and wear a large coat that covers you and baby. Remember, your body heat and carrier will keep the baby warm as well.”

 

Happy babywearing!
