Winter Warmth

Unless you live in the Sunbelt, it's probably pretty cold where you are right now.  Where I am the temperatures have been in the 40's during the day and the 30's at night.  That means dressing appropriately for the weather.  And that means dressing your little ones appropriately too.

It never ceases to amaze me when I go to the store or somewhere outside and I see a baby in a stroller who has bare hands and a bare head.  Hey Moms!  If you need a coat, your baby needs one too.  If your hands are cold, hers are colder (she puts her fingers in her mouth).  And her head is bald.  Don't you think she could use a hat?

Then there are the moms who go to the opposite extreme.  Baby is bundled up with five or six blankets and the poor little thing is obviously uncomfortable.  No wonder Baby is crying.  I would be too!

When it comes to dressing your babies and toddlers, use common sense and use your own comfort as a gauge for what Baby should wear.  If you don't have mittens for her, use a pair of her socks.  They have snug elastic on top and stay on pretty well.  And all bald babies need hats, says the mom who had eight bald babies!  :)
