It may be warm outside right now, but we all know that the winter will be here before we know it. Anyone with a child is more than familiar with the way the months seem to fly by, and we all need to be thinking about how we can start preparing for that cold weather. If you are heading into your very first winter with your new little boy or girl, here are a few tips to help you make the most of this special time. 

Remember To Take It Easy

We don’t need to tell you how stressful the last year and a half have been. As we head into the winter, it seems pretty clear that there are still going to be plenty of things to worry about when it comes to the pandemic and experts warn that it’s going to be that way for a while. We are all going to have our hands full trying to organize work plans, plans for the holidays and keeping everyone happy and healthy. Add a new baby into the mix, and things could get overwhelmingly fast. Remember to take a breath every once in a while, try to find time for yourself and remember to be kind to yourself too.

Make Sure You Stock Up On The Winter Clothes

Finding the right clothes for your baby can feel like a never-ending task. That sweater that they love might suddenly fall apart in the wash. You might think that you’ve found the perfect pair of gloves, but then you find that they are made from materials that have not been responsibly sourced. Shopping for winter clothes in the summer may seem like you’re taking preparation too far, but if you want to be sure that you find items that are good quality and which are responsibly made, then you can’t afford to wait. This range of baby accessories includes hats, gloves, blankets, and solid socks. What’s more, Babysoy is dedicated to using sustainable and/or organic fabrics, so you can find something that’s warm and good for the environment as well as your baby. 

Keep Them Warm

This may sound like obvious advice but if you are caring for a newborn this winter, keeping them warm is going to be a priority. You will have many different things to think about, but warmth needs to be at the top of your list. Remember that layering up is your friend, especially if you are taking them outside. Breathable fabrics are always a good choice, and they tend to be easier to take on or off when you are in a hurry. Bundling up should be your mantra if you are taking them with you for a walk or a trip to the store, but you should keep an eye out for any tell-tale signs of overheating

Be careful when you are bundling your baby in a stroller, as stuffing clothing under a restrictive strap could run the risk of restricting their airways. Wearing your baby will help them to stay warm but take care that their face is not pressed right up against you or your clothing. If you are cranking the heating, remember that the lack of humidity could affect your baby’s skin so try not to turn it up too high.
