How to dress a newborn at home?
A lot of controversy and questions arise about how to dress a child at home. Most parents try to put on the baby as much clothing as possible. In fact, the newborn has no normal, customary heat exchange.
From this follows the conclusion that you should not rely on your own feelings. If you are cold, it does not mean that the baby is experiencing the same feelings. Believe me, if the child is uncomfortable, then you will learn about this characteristic crying.
Based on this, it follows a basic rule - should be worn on the basis of the temperature of the house, and not outside the window. It is possible that you have heated the room or you have so well drowned at home that you can even walk in shorts and T-shirts, then limit yourself to a simple body that you put on your baby.

How to dress a newborn in winter for a walk?
Before you go for a walk, look at the thermometer. If the temperature does not exceed -15-18 degrees, then you can safely go for a walk. Wearing clothes must be in several layers. At the same time, the baby should have only one layer more things than an adult.

Temperature below -10
Frosty weather, which is still worth a walk. To go outside, use 4 layers of clothing. These are several cotton overalls, one warm and street winter variant.
At the same time, if there are strong winds and frost outside, then be sure to lay an envelope of sheep wool at the bottom of the stroller, or use a thick blanket.
Temperature above 0
The most dangerous temperature at which more children fall ill. This is due to the fact that parents start to undress the baby too early, rejoicing at the arrival of the sun.

A bit about winter clothes
Currently, a large amount of clothing is presented on store shelves, which differs by color, manufacturer, style and size. Sometimes, it is very difficult to make the right choice. Many are simply confused in such a rich variety.
Remember one thing, a child at this age is so small that he doesn’t care what he looks like. The main thing that disturbs him is the convenience, which should be taken care of first. Choose materials only from natural fabrics. No synthetic impurities should be based on them, no matter how beautiful they are.
Pay attention to the clasps. There should be as little lightning as possible and various rivets that will cause general discomfort.
This is a way to protect your head from hypothermia. During the walk, the first head freezes. In choosing a cap it is worth starting from the material and the presence of strings. With their help, it will be possible to fix the model tightly on the head. Even if the child is spinning, the cap will not fall down.
This is an indispensable tool for frosty days. It is enough one jumpsuit for walking. At the same time, purchase one size larger than what the baby wears. During the winter, the child will grow strongly, and in the spring you can still wear a dress in a pram.
A warm jumpsuit has several filler options. This and the usual fleece, and sheepskin. The filler will depend on how warm you want the product to be. Too dense materials should not be chosen.
Mandatory element of the wardrobe of the newborn. It is necessary even if you have a jumpsuit with closed legs. From above, you must wear socks to keep your feet warm. They can be either with an additional layer of insulation, or simply empty.
How not to go for a walk?
In the first days of the newborn you should not walk too long. Start your walk with 10-15 minutes. In this case, it is not necessary to carry the stroller. You can well walk in the fresh air with a baby in her arms. Gradually increase your walk by 10-15 minutes.
Be sure to before you go for a walk, change the baby diapers to a new one.
Initially, parents dress themselves, and only then put clothes on their child, so that the baby does not sweat and as a result does not get sick.
In frosty weather, use special protective creams that will help to escape from frostbite and burning skin.
Baby clothes should be only one size larger than what he has. In too large jumpsuits, the baby can simply freeze.
