When you first become a parent the specialists always advise you to keep your baby warm and even suggest to wrap them in an extra layer. With so many ideas and suggestions that people give you it’s hard to know which one to go with.
We want to make it easy for you and have listed 5 ways to keep them warm.
- Blankets –
There are several different kinds of blanket that you can get that will be soft and comfortable for your baby to be swaddled in. Baby’s tend to like this because it reminds them of being inside the womb. You will often find that family and friends will give you knitted blankets which are great because they still let the air in.
- Sleepsuits –
One piece cotton sleepsuits are a good choice and if it gets really chilly you can even put a vest top underneath. How ever you do not need to put a hat on your child anywhere indoors as they will overheat.
- Heating –
Make sure you keep your whole house at reasonable heat so when moving from one room to another you keep your baby at steady temperature. If your worried that your radiators are not performing correctly or there are sounds coming from your heating system maybe contact a Cheltenham Boiler Repair company at sites including http://www.hprservicesltd.com/cheltenham-boilers/boiler-repair-cheltenham/. They will have expertly trained staff who can come when it suits you.
- Location –
When deciding where to put the cot in your room think about positioning, as if it’s too close to the window your baby will feel any leaks of air coming through. You will also avoid any condensation that may form. You don’t want to put the cot to close to the radiator in case of burns and overheating.
- Wear your baby
Getting a harness for your baby to keep them wrapped up against you will help as they will share your body temperature. If you are venturing outside just make sure you have protected their head and feet either with a hat and socks or a sleep suit.
So now you know how to keep your baby warm you can start stocking up on those essentials you need and remember to get spares. If you are buying hats you will need one to wear, one for the drawer, one to wash and one spare or some people get one for every day of the week plus one spare per day.
