Written by on September 30, 2012 in Family - No comments | Print this page


We haven’t really had much of a summer but the winter months are definitely upon us, which means it is time to wrap up warm. It is particularly important to keep babies warm at this time of the year, as they don’t retain as much heat as adults. There are plenty of ways you can ensure your baby stays wrapped up warm as this time of year, so they won’t end up falling ill over the winter. You can find these clothes in all sort of vibrant colors for both boys and girls, so that the weather will be the only gloomy part of the season.


Snowsuits are ideal for your baby to wear during the day and at night. If you are taking them out during the day, this outfit will retain the heat and keep them warm, even during the coldest of days. They will also ensure your baby stays comfortable and cosy, which means less stress for you. There are lots of cute styles to be found in snowsuits, so your baby looks as good as they feel. Snowsuits have plenty of extra layers for even the coldest of days. Snowsuits also have a hood, which will protect their head at the same times as keeping their body warm.


If you are dressing your baby girl in a skirt for the day, you should make sure you also put a pair of tights on them to keep their legs warm during the cold weather. They are also ideal for wearing if you are dressing them up for a party or when you are visiting friends and family. Leggings are also the perfect choice for dressing your baby girl, as they are comfortable and will keep her warm and wrapped up. You may wish to opt for light and bright colors, so that they also look stylish and pretty at all times.

Baby Hat

The winter months definitely call for the use of some comfortable baby hats, so that your baby’s head will stay nice and warm. You can choose lots of woolly designs, which are the perfect style for wearing during the cold weather. We lose a lot of heat from our head, so a hat is important to ensure your baby stays warm at all times.


If you are taking your baby out in the pram during the day, make sure you take a few blankets to keep them warm. You can never really tell when the temperature will start to drop, so you need to be prepared for all eventualities. Blankets are especially important to tuck your baby up at night when the temperature is at its lowest. These will also keep your baby warm at night time when they are in their cot.

Scarves and Mittens

Scarves and mittens are the perfect choice for dressing your baby in the autumn and winter as they will keep them warm and comfortable at all times. There is no better feeling than being completely protected from the cold from top to bottom and scarves and mittens will be sure to do the job. These items of clothing are perfect for both boys and girls, especially when you are taking them out for the whole day.

Sleeping Bags

The ideal winter warmer for babies at night, sleeping bags will ensure they are tightly covered and insulated during the cold months. They are also ideal for taking away with you if you decide to go on holiday with your bay during the winter. Sleeping bags are not only warm but are also practical, as your baby won’t be able to wiggle out of them and hurt themselves. If the temperature drops really low, you can team your sleeping bag up with a few blankets, so your baby will be warm and snug even during the coldest of nights. Sleeping bags don’t need to be dull and drab; you can find lots of choices of bright colors and interesting patterns, or even in their favorite cartoon characters.
