It is during these two seasons that parents have the most questions about clothes for their baby. The weather is so contrasting that it is difficult to guess with the right kit. We will tell you how to dress your baby in spring and autumn to avoid he alth problems.
We look not at the calendar, but at the thermometer
Modern mothers often sin by over-wrapping their baby. Therefore, cases of hypothermia in children with quite adequate parents are extremely rare. Use common sense when dressing your child, not the time of year, advice from neighbors, or how other children dress.
If September is outside the window, but the thermometer is 25 degrees, then the jacket will definitely be superfluous. But frosts in March can force you to get winter overalls. If you don’t know how to dress a child in spring, then focus on your feelings and your own wardrobe. Putting on a baby more layers of clothes, contrary to popular belief, is not worth it. If you are comfortable in a light jacket, then dress the crumbs according to the same principle. The exception is sedentary babies. Let's talk about this in more detail.
We take into account the mobility of the child
A kid who walks confidently and is obliged to climb all the slides, stairs and swings during a walk has practically no chance of freezing. How to dress a child in spring or autumn when he is quite mobile? At temperatures below 10 degrees, long-sleeved cotton underwear, a thin knitted blouse, tights, pants and a jacket with a thin layer of insulation are sufficient. And, of course, don't forget your hat. At temperatures above 15 degrees, it can be quite thin. If it's cool and windy outside, then you should give preference to a multi-layer hat with a warm lining that tightly covers the ears.
For babies who sleep in the stroller the whole trip, we recommend adding one layer of clothing. Due to their immobility, babies can get cold. Constantly check the temperature at the back of the head to assess the child's condition. You may also need a thin blanket to cover the baby from the wind. Before you dress your child, go for a walk yourself. Even five minutes in full gear at room temperature can cause a pup to sweat. But the tandem of sweat and wind is very dangerous.
Separately, I would like to talk about the kids who are already leaving their stroller to stomp their feet. If your baby is on the way to the first independent steps, then choose the most comfortable clothes for him. Perfect for a jumpsuit with gathered cuffs on the handles.and legs. Children will be comfortable in a set of semi-overalls and a jacket. In such a suit it is also very convenient to go shopping, as you can easily take off the jacket in a stuffy room. Pants should cover the back and chest so that when walking and other movements do not expose the baby's body.
How to dress a child in autumn if it is cloudy outside the window
Children need fresh air. Therefore, even the rain should not become an obstacle to walking. Of course, with a strong thunderstorm and a downpour, it is better to sit in a warm apartment.
For a promenade with a baby, use a blanket and a raincoat to cover the stroller from drops. But for active kids, overalls made of waterproof material, as well as rubber boots with legs, are ideal. Find at least one child who does not experience happiness when jumping in a puddle. It is unlikely that you will succeed, so it is better to protect your cub from moisture with clothes and shoes.
It is not always possible to determine exactly how to dress a child in spring, autumn or at other times of the year. However, do not try to protect the baby from all weather surprises. The child's body is perfectly able to cope with temperature changes, just do not interfere with it.
