Winter can be both fun and stressful at the same time. But if you’re a first-time mom, you’ll find this season more stressful than fun because you need to go the extra mile just to keep your baby warm at all times. If you have already prepared your boots, jackets, gloves, and warmers, then it’s time you get your little one some basic winter essentials. Where to get started? Well, you can check out first these top 3 winter essentials for baby before you get the more intricate stuff like car seat covers and humidifiers.
1. Long-sleeved shirts and heavy fabric blankets. Your baby needs the added layering, as the weather becomes colder—which is sometimes too much for your little one to bear. These long-sleeved shirts and even the short-sleeved ones can very much do the trick of providing that extra warmth that your baby needs. However, sometimes the added layering is not enough to keep your baby warm. So, this is where heavy fabric blankets come in. They are designed primarily for the colder months, so you’re assured that these will keep your little one warm and comfortable all the time.
2. Mittens. These clothing accessories are what your baby needs to provide warmth and comfort to his freezing exposed hands. These vary greatly with gloves, as these are designed primarily for babies while the latter are for toddlers. Also, mittens do not have compartments for each finger while gloves have.
3. Beanie hats. Aside from the hands, your baby’s ears are also very sensitive during the winter season. In fact, ear infection is very rampant among babies during this time. So the best thing that you can do is provide your little one with a beanie hat that can be pulled down snuggly to cover the ears.
