For every new parent, their baby’s first winter is a scary period; of course because of the plethora of stories we read about sneezing, coughing and falling sick.. But honestly, if you take necessary precautions, you can let the baby enjoy their first winter and cherish this beautiful first season of their life..
So first of all, don’t panic. Do you even know that the babies generally fall sick four times as much as adults? Yes, so there may be a few incidents that you can’t avoid, but taking the right measures at the right time and having a right pediatrician one call away can really help you to sail smoothly on your way.
Secondly, don’t overdress the baby. You can’t let them wear all the winter clothes in a day. Rule: Vest- Inner- Bodysuit- Sweater. If going out, layer up with one jacket, cap, mittens and thick socks. If it’s windy, wrap them in a light warm stole or baby’s blanket.
Use good cotton and fleece-lined clothing as babies’ skin is very soft and sometimes they don’t like the wool rubbing to their skin. Hence if you feel the baby is uncomfortable, then it’s probably because they aren’t liking the woolen fabric.
While Washing: Don’t wash baby’s clothes with normal detergent or Dettol. Only use baby’s laundry detergent or Ezeea and also wash them separately and let them dry properly in the sunlight to eradicate every single germ or bacteria.
Always prefer one size bigger: Do you also struggle while dressing up your baby? Well, the vest and the inner should be the right size but always buy the sweater or jackets a little bigger in size. Babies grow up fast and soon you won’t be able to use them again, plus the skin also needs some air to breathe.
Happy Parenting ??
