5 Helpful Tips to Dress Babies for Cooler Weather

tips to dress babies for cooler weather
As the fall season begins, so does a change in the weather. Mild, crisp air will give way to cooler temperatures — an adjustment that is sure to inspire some wardrobe changes for your baby. No matter where you live, there are plenty of stylish and cozy baby clothes to keep your little one looking cute and feeling comfortable. These helpful tips for dressing infants make it easy to shop for seasonal clothes. They will also help you to create effortless baby outfits that are perfect for autumn and winter.

Shop for Layers
When the temperatures change from day to night, layers will help your baby to stay comfortable. Long sleeve tops and bodysuits are an ideal first layer. While these cute and simple garments make diaper changes faster and more convenient, they also help to keep your baby cozy. Bodysuits are an especially smart choice for cooler weather because they cover the baby's entire back and tummy. They will not ride up when your baby is being held or sitting in their car seat, which helps to keep them extra warm. 

A long sleeve first layer is also a great choice because it is the perfect complement to comfortable baby bottoms like sweatpants or leggings. Pair a solid coloured top or a printed bodysuit with a pair of solid coloured pants. Accessorize with a cute cap or a precious headband. If it becomes cold or windy outside, you can add more layers of clothing on top. Sweaters, jackets and hoodies are soft and stylish second layers for baby boy and baby girl outfits. Pack a couple of extra layers in your diaper bag to stay prepared for any type of weather. Ideas include a couple of colourful tops, a pair of knit leggings or a plush cardigan. 

Purchase Cozy Basics
Now that you are ready to shop for layers, be sure to stock up on the most comfortable and essential baby girl and baby boy clothes for fall and winter. Shopping for a multipack of shirts or bodysuits can help you to create quick, cute outfits while cutting down on laundry. Buy a set of bottoms in colours or prints that will match the tops. Stock up on at least a few sweaters, coats and jackets so you are prepared to keep your baby warm and assemble a fashionable outfit. 

Add several pairs of cozy baby socks to your shopping cart. A pack of neutral socks with colours like white, gray and cream is sure to match seasonal clothing. You will also find sets of baby socks in a variety of vibrant hues and holiday colours. Choose longer cuts and cuffed socks in the winter to make sure that baby’s lower leg stays warm. Comfy baby sleepwear such as footed pajamas and long sleeve PJ sets will help your little one to nap and sleep better through a chilly night. Newborns and small infants may like the comfort and security of swaddling wraps and receiving blankets. Other adorable, cozy basics for infants of all ages include long sleeve gowns, footed pants and cute long sleeve dress and legging sets for baby girls.

Add Warm Accessories
Cooler weather calls for adding warm baby accessories to your layers. Cozy hats and caps will protect your child’s head and ears. An insulated head covering keeps heat from escaping from a baby's head and body. Mittens help to prevent scratching while making sure that little hands and fingers stay safe and comfy. Booties and baby shoes add an extra layer of warmth to cozy socks. Find shoes and slippers in all styles, including plush Velboa booties for playing indoors or booties that are made to look like athletic sneakers and fashionable footwear.

Purchase these accessories in matching colours and patterns for a fashion-forward baby outfit. Many baby stores and online shops sell cap and mitten sets for infants. A multipack of neutral colours or seasonal prints will make your little one look cute and trendy. 

Buy Cool Weather Fabrics
Cotton is an excellent fabric for baby boy and baby girl clothes. While it is cozy and gentle, it also helps to wick moisture from the skin. You will find infant clothing for all seasons in soft and dynamic cotton material. Long sleeve tops, comfortable baby bottoms and jackets are all examples of cool weather clothing that are made with cotton and organic cotton fabric.

Additional choices for fall baby clothing include jersey knit, fleece and flannel. Corduroy and denim are adorable for everything from pants to overalls and dresses. Minky fabric is plush and makes for cute blankets, coats and sweaters. No matter what material you like, ensure that you are buying your baby clothes from a trusted, quality brand. The right fabric will keep your baby cozy while protecting their skin from the elements. Since your little one is so delicate, it will also help to prevent skin irritation.

Remember Cool Weather Safety
While layers can help to keep your baby warm and protected, they also deserve a word of caution. Avoid putting large coats, sweaters or jackets on your baby when they are in their car seat. Puffy layers can make your baby's seat less secure. They could also cause your child to overheat when the heat is on in your vehicle.

No matter whether you are indoors or outside, always check in with your baby to make sure they are comfortable. Warm, flushed skin and sweating are a couple of signs that your baby is overheating, according to Healthline. On the other hand, What to Expect says that a baby who is too cold may have chilly hands or feet. Finally, remember that babies can get sunburned, even in cold weather. If you spend time outside, consider dressing your child in accessories like a hat or baby sunglasses. 

Keeping Your Baby Comfy in Cooler Weather
Cool or mild weather can help to create blissful walks and fun outdoor activities for you and your baby. When you know which layers and accessories you need for your infant, you will be much more confident in enjoying the season. Keep the right baby clothes and a diaper bag handy with extra supplies for all types of weather. With the right preparation, you are sure to have a wonderful end to your baby's first year.
